Gun control has been a major controversy in the United States for many years now. More and more gun control laws and restrictions have been passed. Many American's are in favor of these yet many remain opposed. The gun control laws that have already been passed have made large difference in the firearm crime rate. New gun control laws are being pressed in courts all across the U.S. to protect the citizens; yet many are opposed to these protective laws. The Constitution states, "Right to bare arms", not right to own deadly weapons of destruction. Many people have looked to the Bible for the answer to gun control. This issue is not even an argument. Guns were not even heard of, or made at the time of the Bible's creation.
Gun control is not one issue, but many. To some people gun control is a crime issue; to others it is a rights issue. Gun control is a safety issue, an education issue, a racial issue, and a political issue, among others. Within each of these issues there are those who want more gun control legislation and those who want less. On both sides of this issue, opinions range from moderate to extreme.
Why do so many American's oppose our government trying to protect their safety and good will? Our great nation has not taken away their constitutional rights in any way shape or form. They have however, helped control the murder rates of firearms and the misuse of firearms. (Bureau of Justice Statistics).
People for gun control know they cannot take all guns away from people. Because guns will be smuggled in, sold, and hidden. It's every law abiding American's right to own and carry a firearm. However, this does not mean regulations should not take the firearms away that is deadly to everyday citizens.
Sure, gun lovers state the government is trying to take away all the guns away from citizens. Also, that the government is going to control everything in our lives because citizens won't be able to revolt.
