Violence is occurring all across the world right now in some form. Today, the violence people speak of most often is gun violence. Although some people feel we should not have the right to bear arms, in spite of self-defense, government regulations, and safety precautions.
If a citizen's right to bear arms was banned, criminals would not be able to acquire guns as easily for their crimes. Law enforcement would have a much greater advantage over criminals. School shootings wouldn't occur since children couldn't have access to a firearm.
However, if a woman is walking down the street and a rapist tries to rape her. An intruder breaks into a home while the parents and children are sleeping. While taking a hike through the forest, the hiker gets attacked by a territorial animal. In all these cases he or she would want the right to own and carry firearms.
The government has passed many laws for gun control, but not gun banishment. For instance, the Brady Bill put a five day waiting period on the purchasing of a handgun and required local law enforcement background checks on handgun purchasers. Also the government has banned the purchasing of assault rifles for civilians, and the production of armor-piercing bullets. Another regulation is that firearms, except handguns, or ammunition may not be sold to anyone under eighteen.
Keeping accidental deaths to a minimum people must use some simple safety precautions. For instance, keep all your firearms locked in a good place where children or anyone else the gun owner doesn't want messing with his firearms. If a firearms owner doesn't lock his weapons away then he or she should always keep them unloaded and broken down. Some people like to keep his or her weapons loaded though in case of an emergency. In this case trigger locks is the safest way to keep children from getting into accidents.
In conclusion some people feel we should not have the right to bear arms, in spite of self-defense, government regulations, and safety precautions. Banning the right to bear arms would infringe our second amendment rights. People need to realize that its not the guns that kill the victim. It is the person that kills the victim
