Stricter Gun Control Regulations












Stricter Gun Control Regulations
Each year thousands of people lose their lives through gun-related problems.   Many of those deaths could have been prevented by stricter gun laws.   American’s challenge the culture of violence when they act in the certainty that violence is no longer acceptable, that it is tired and outdated no matter how many cling to it in the stubborn belief that it still works and that it’s still valid.   Dr. Gerard Vanderhaar (2013) wrote about stricter gun control, “hoping for a gun free society”.   More restrictions on gun control regulations are needed.
Are mass slayings of innocent men, women, and children with guns something that we have just accepted in America?   Should America become more serious about restricting access to guns?   After the recent and tragic shootings in America, many individuals are now contemplating whether legislative actions should be implemented to prevent people from destroying lives. Some people say, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” surly this statement is true, but it is also true that it is easier for people to kill using guns.
A plethora of gun rights advocates have voiced strong opinions that fire arms are not the problem and that the introduction of stricter laws to control guns is unnecessary.   Some protagonists of gun control and interpreters of constitutional law have passionately exclaimed that private citizens should not be allowed to possess a gun. Some people believe all civilians should be banned from possessing any kind of firearm.   To be sure, the Second Amendment does preserve and guarantee the right of individuals to keep and bear arms.
