Gun Un-Control Essay, Research Paper
Gun Control 1st affirmative speech
Anyone who thinks that we have enough gun control laws is either NRA, or severly mistguided. And since I’m probably going to end up getting brushed off in the long run anyway, I’ll get my teams two cents in. There is really no place to begin, so I’ll dive on in head first. Gun Control laws need to be much stricter. This is so obvious it isn’t even funny. While on thought about this issue, I thought about what our collegues, the negative status quo would say. I thought that maybe they might try to bring up Canada as some sort of example. If you are unaware of what I am talking about, then I shall illustrate. In Canada, a lot of things are better. Better hockey, better pro wrestling, better coffe and better gun control laws. Maybe not better, but stricter. And even with their strict gun control laws, they turned up with a school shooting. Someone who shall remain nameless who seems to have sided with the status quo, says that that is a prime example of why more gun control laws are bad. ?? I can’t figure it out either. It just means that even there, with their strict thight gun control laws, out of gun control still happens. This had to be brought up eventually. The trenchcoat mafia. Wow. That’s all I can say. Gun control laws are so sloppy and loose that two teenage underagers, were able to purchase shot guns, share them in a class presentation, later sneak them into a school and blow away about 20 people. Say if you will that this was not the fault of any gun law, and just a couple of loony toones. BUt I say you are wrong. I say that had gun control laws been tighter, this could easily have been prevented. Look at it this way. If we had the right laws, the right enforcement, then they wouldn’t even have gotten a hold of these deadly weapons. Let alone sneak them into a SCHOOL of all places. And now, at least 13 people are dead because of it. Not to mention at least 2,000 people who die of gun related accidents every year. I also chose to look at it from the negative prospective once again. THey may try and say that alot of gun related deaths are accidents. And? That just further proves my point. Just because it’s an accident, don’t mean it didn’t happen. It also means that our gun control laws are so sloppy that people, can actaully take a gun, and accidentally kill them self or someone else. I know people are entitled mistakes, like, say some baggy old hunter goes into the woods to take a leak and winds up shooting himself in the foot. SO what. Freak accident. But the fact that untrained three year olds *(just an example) can grab their dad’s gun and blow their tiny little brains all over the living room just shows that our gun control is no control at all. Yeah, this sounds sick, but it happens very often. I don’t think that this is just some price that is worth it to have your very own huntin’ gun in ya’llz house. Thus, anyone who thinks that we have strict enough gun control laws is either NRA, or severly misguided.
