Residents in those nine states in America who want to carry firearms that have the lowest violent Crime rate in the Country are those that allow its people the right to carry guns. On the morning of December 17,2012, it was a regular routine for the administers and the students who were of the ages 5 and 6 who had no idea about the tragic shooting that was going to happen two hours later they arrive to school. By, taking the innocent victims gun, so they cannot protect themselves, is not promoting gun safety. The second amendment gives victims the right to carry arms for their protection. This country was founded on the people of the country owning guns to protect what they think is right. The constitution gives the people the right to bear arms and protect themselves. Any law against guns should be unconstitutional but the laws were made because it is what some people want. The Government wants to take the peoples’ guns because the government assumes by the civilians owning guns, they assume accidents happen when people retain guns. Handguns are used for protection against criminals in America nearly 2 million times per year. The government should use different bases to set safer ways, rather than automatically taking the innocent peoples guns. The constitution has regulations that make the gun control act debatable with ownership of guns. The regulations need to be enforced better, rather than being stricter. Hunters should be able to continue playing the part in conservationism. Furthermore, hunting firearms are designed for hunting animals and not killing people, therefore the rate of fire on these weapons are slower than military grade weapons and the bulky size of many of these rifles make them impractical for close quarters fighting. Hunting is a massive part of some people’s lives that need to hunt for sustenance. Gun Safety should be stressed more than rather stressing out about removing firearms. Gun laws require that in order to obtain a fire arm in your home, you must have a safe to safely store them in. Parents should teach children to not touch any guns that are in sight, and teach them how they should react to a criminal with a weapon. The government should also do a better background check and quicker. The government thinks that enacting the law would stop gun violence, but sadly it would not. The percentage of gun violence would most likely to stay on the same rate because of the criminals getting a hold of them. .” In 2007, there were 613 fatal firearm accidents in the United States, constituting 0.5% of 123,706 fatal accidents that year, The Government thinks there is more deaths with firearms, but the government is proven wrong.”( James D. Agresti and Reid K. Smith) The fact about gun violence shows that if innocent people are armed, there is less of a chance of a mass killing, or anything involving killing. There is statistics that show that civilians are more likely to stop a problem with hostages, or anything in that area in a short amount of time before cops show up. The average number of civilians dying in a mass shooting when stopped by civilians is 2.3 compared to mass shootings stopped by police being 14.3. The civilians stop it most of the time because cops take an average of 21 minutes to show up to a crime. If more people were armed, less people would die in a mass shooting Texas murder rate has averaged 30% lower than it was before the law took affect, while the U.S. murder rate has averaged 28% lower, the murder rate decreased in January 1996.” 5,340,000 violent crimes were committed in the United States during 2008. These include simple/aggravated assaults, robberies, sexual assaults, rapes, and murders”, while “about 436,000 or 8% were committed by offenders visibly armed with a gun”. The results show that crimes would still be done by being armed by criminals, but it is better to be safe than sorry, so the innocent people should be able to carry concealed
