Being against gun control
Imagine America with less say on our second amendment. Many guns that we own/ enjoy now would have to be turned over to the government. Not only does that limit our freedom but it also makes most of us not feel safe. After the emotional shooting at Newtown, Connecticut, we shouldn’t assume that limiting guns in the United States will stop violence. We need to consider some changes, but think clearly about these decisions though. My three reasons that we shouldn’t have gun control in America is; people are still going to find ways to smuggle guns into this country, limiting our second amendment, is taking our freedom away a little at a time and guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
To start off, people are still going to try and smuggle guns into this country. Just like the famous mobster Al Capone did with guns and also with liquor in the prohibition years. That was when liquor was banned, but was still in high demand, so the risk was worth the fortune, as with drugs in this country today. Once hooked on a drug, the individual will buy drugs imported from another country because it is illegal here. Many also do it, for the fact that they can’t legally do and/or possess the drug. My point being that making it stricter to own a firearm will only increase the desire to obtain the gun.
This brings me to my next point, limiting our second amendment is taking our freedom away a little at a time, which we acquired our freedom with guns during the Revolutionary War. Without these guns we would have had no defense against the brutal battle we was faced to endure. Once we start limiting an amendment, it affects things around us, for either the best or worse. Just like 9/11, we use to be able to just hop on a plane last second through minimum security, now we have a bit less freedom for more security.
My last point being guns don’t kill people, people kill people. As with any type of...
