Pro Gun Control

It’s important to remember that there are two sides to every story. While the arguments against gun control are extraordinarily valid, so are the arguments for gun control.

According a website called “ontheissue.org” it is a fact that over 100,000 people are shot every year and 75% of violent deaths are caused by guns. And it only takes common sense to understand that the easier access there is to guns, the larger the amount of criminals that will have them. It’s also understood that children left alone with loaded guns could accidently harm themselves severely.

But there should not be complete gun control since there are still ways they can be used for good. Hunting and self-protection are valid reasons for keeping a gun. But they should be harder to access and the types of guns that are available should be limited. There’s no reason a person should have the ability to purchase a machine gun or 30 shot assault rifle. What are they going to do with that? A .22 rifle will bring down a deer just as well.

On top of that, many people don’t realize that we already have gun control laws in place. Does anyone agree that a child should be allowed to bring a pistol to class? The idea seems ludicrous and we all know that bringing any sort of weapon to school is illegal. Yet what most of us don’t think about is that this law is a form of gun control.

So my point being made, what do you think?
