|Gun control. No matter your stance on the subject. Gun control has become the big talk in the United States and rightfully so.|
How can we as a nation protect our citizens? Will Gun control help? Maybe in a few ways. Having tougher gun laws will help. Extensive
background checks will solve some of the problems but will not completely get rid of the problem. Why you say, well in all of history
there has always been violence in every part of the world. There are some that do not respect the life of another. They take what they
want and do not care about lives. Evil people will always exsist. So the debate will go on, here's an idea. The right to bear arms is in
our constitution. It was put there for a reason, to provide our people with its own protection in case of attack. Either from other countries
criminals, or from our own government. Think back to the revolutionary war. What were our founding fathers fighting against. Why did they put
this ammendment into our constitution? These are a few questions to ponder.
The ban of semi-automatic weapons will help, no one needs these weapons, except the military who are trained to use them. But total
ban of guns would be a devastating blow to our personal rights as citizens. When one fundamental right is taken away. there surely will
be more to follow. We do not live in a perfect world. There is no easy answers. What is your stance on this controversal subject? What is the best way to keep our people, especially our children safe?
