Handguns – Should They Be More Strictly Controlled?
America sure loves it’s guns.
In 2012, the small arms survey concluded that the United States has 88.9 firearms for every one hundred people.
That’s more than Yemen, Mexico, Pakistan, and the West Bank/Gaza combined.
A Quick Look At Opposing Handgun Control Views
In Favor Of Stricter Handguns Control
If you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia, you’ll get a population roughly the size of the United States.
America had 30,000 gun deaths last year, they had 112.
The difference between them and us is not that Americans are more violent by nature.
It is because they have strict gun control laws.
Against Stricter Handguns Control
Laws don’t apply to criminals.
Gun control does not address the issue of gun-related crimes.
In 2010, gun sales in Chicago were verboten.
There were 432 murders in 2010 and 500 in 2012.
The FBI named Chicago the nation’s murder capital.
If a criminal is going to break the law, he will find a way.
We have the right to feel safe and to defend ourselves!
America Is Divided Over Gun Laws
Here Is The Text Of The 2nd Amendment
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed".
The above can only be intended to mean, the right for every American citizen to carry arms, if one considers every American to be part of a militia.
What Do You Think?
Should there be tighter gun laws in America?
Are US citizens a militia?
