Gun laws are laws that should be taken into serious consideration when any person can walk into a store and buy one. The article “Should There be more restrictions for purchasing guns and ammunition?”, says that policies discussed for buying guns have included “raising the age to buy a gun, requiring a federal background check before buying a gun, and raising taxes on ammunition to discourage its purchase.” All of these actions are laws that make it harder for just anyone to go in and buy guns which in turn make guns safer all around. People who are not mentally stable or that do not know how to use guns, should not be able to own one because it puts themselves and others in serious danger.
The article “Should there be more restrictions on the current process of purchasing a gun?”, says “Gun control laws have always sparked one of the most controversial debates in the United States”. Proponents of more gun control laws state that more restrictions will decrease gun violence. People will use the second amendment and argue that gun ownership is an individual’s right for self-defence. People should be able to have the right to self-defence, but there are certain people who should have access to guns, and there are certain people who should not have access to owning a gun. This is why there needs to be restrictions on who is allowed to have guns, restrictions need to be better and harder to meet the requirements.
Gun laws are always a very controversial topic because some people agree that gun laws need to be more strict, and some people believe that everyone has the right of owning a gun. Gun laws become very political because of the two opposing views of the topic. Gun violence will decrease with more restrictions and with more restrictions, guns become less dangerous to humans but better for self defense or other things guns will be used for.
