! In the campaign of Bill OWrights and Barbie Q. Grylls, both have similar thoughts on gun control. Both candidates are against the restriction of citizens from owning guns. Gun control is an issue that people have di"erent feelings on, so here are some reasons why some would and why some would not restrict the use of guns by the general public.! ! Reasons why people WOULD want the use of guns by the public restricted: 1. Most violent crimes are committed with guns so restricting ownership would probably reduce the number of such crimes. 2. Lunatics, bullied kids, disgruntled workers, and others can inict mass casualties with guns that otherwise wouldnt be possible. 3. A crime victim who has a gun might be in more danger than an unarmed person since the criminal may kill in perceived self#defense. 4. The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution was targeted towards militia, e.g. The National Guard, rather than individuals. 5. Terrorism, school shootings, and other modern circumstances makes guns more dangerous today. ! Reasons why they WOULD NOT want to restrict the use of guns by citizens: 1. Criminals will always nd ways to obtain their guns, leaving law#abiding citizens without any weapons to use in defense. 2. Crimes are often prevented by the deterrent e"ect of the possibility of victim gun possession. 3. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution protects the individuals rights to gun ownership. 4. Women and weaker individuals may have no means of self#defense from rape or other crimes, especially in the inner city. 5. Guns in the possession of citizens are an added protection against government tyranny.
