Gun Control.

There have been a lot of discussions about the topic of gun control for past couple of months. There have been many controversies about whether or not there should be stricter laws and regulations regarding gun control. In my opinion I think that there should be some stricter laws regarding gun control. I think that there should be stricter background checks before somebody can purchase a gun. I also think that there should be a limit on the capacity of bullets the magazines can hold. And I also think that the government should not ban any kind of guns they just need to make stricter laws regarding them. So I think that there should be stricter laws and regulations regarding gun control.

The first thing that I think the government should do regarding gun control is to make laws requiring stricter laws for buying and selling guns. I think that before somebody can purchase a gun they should have to pass a background check and a test to check for mental illnesses. I also think that it should be a lot harder than it is now to buy a gun. You can go on Facebook and find a person that will sell you a gun without any kind of background checks or anything as long as they get cash. I think the government should have some kind of restrictions on websites like that so that murderers can’t just go and buy a gun without getting checked or anything. But a lot of the people that are against these extra test and checks think


that it will be too much of a hassle just to buy a gun. But I don’t think it will be a hassle at all if it keeps these guns out of these mentally ill people’s hands.

The next thing that the government should do is to put a limit on the capacity of magazines. This is one of the new laws that president Obama just passed. It makes it where the maximum number of bullets that can be held in a magazine of a gun is ten rounds. I believe that this is a good idea because somebody can’t just walk into a building with a 100 round magazine. Many people argue that this won’t make a difference because that they will just carry a lot of magazines with them. But I think that somebody that is carrying a lot of magazines and bullets on them will be pretty easy to notice because magazines are pretty bulky. But I believe that there should also be a law that puts a limit on how many magazines a person can own. That would prevent somebody from carrying many magazines at once.

Another thing that I think the government should do is to not ban the guns. In my opinion I don’t think that AR-15’s should be banned. An AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle
