Should there be gun control? Do we the people need help from the government to set guidelines and bans out to keep us safe? If we did, would the prices we pay surmount the desired results. No, gun control is not a constitutionally sound device nor does it protect us. Gun control is not a new tool. In the past century it was used repeatedly by great rulers/dictators. However, these rulers used it as a tool to manipulate and de-power a nations people. Before Hitler took over and began his quest of racial cleansing, he banned guns from all citizens. Do you think that the stories of 2/3 of euro-jews being led to death like sheep would have been the same if they were armed? I do not. Mass gun control was also used by Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Tse Tung to de-arm and put entire nations to sleep. However, this could never happen to the United States. Our founding fathers foresaw this and enplaned a precautionary amendm ...view middle of the document...

Also, should large and sophisticated assault weapons be available? Absolutely, yes. Weapons of this caliber are close to never used for criminal acts. Also, could Sharon Tate have fought off the Manson Family with a small 5 shot pistol? No, any means we need to protect ourselves should be available, encouraged and without a doubt legal. For example, Switzerland has introduced laws requiring every house hold to contain at least one fully automatic assault rifle. To everyone's surprise, the murder rate of Switzerland in substantially lower than that of the United States. Should we adopt such a radical life style? No, but would something less extreme be bad? Another myth on gun control is the false study stating that statistics show that a household gun will more likely be used to kill a family member than defend your home. This test is an embarrassment to modern statistical studies, it is deceptiveand downright poorly executed. This test only counted the number of family members shot to that of burglars shot to death. It conveniently neglected to count criminals wounded by these firearms, criminals scared of by the crack of the shot, or even potentially targeted houses left alone due to the acquisition of knowledge that the home contained a firearm. When it all boils down, gun control is just a bad idea. It doesn't even effect criminals who's access to guns will never be infringed upon. How can we prevent potential law breaking people from getting guns with such a large black market for firearms and such a great availability in Mexico and other nations of the world. Even if you did take away all the guns of the world, people would hold up banks with bombs, knives, bow's and arrows, baseball bats, or even an long stale piece of French Bread. The way to prevent such crimes is find jobs for those people, and give them role in society. Are such laws needed when more people will die by drowning each year that death by a firearm? (4,100 drowning lost lives to 900 gun related tragedies) Should we out law all liquids? Of course not, gun control is wrong, and should be promptly abolished.
