Article [II.] Amendments to the Constitution

Gun control

America is faced with a growing problem of violence. Streets have become
a battlefield where the people can be beaten for a couple dollars, where
women can be brutally attacked and raped. Every day criminals try to
divide territories to sell their illegal drugs, and innocent people are
caught in the crossfire of drive-by shootings. We cannot ignore the
damage that these criminals are doing to our society, and strong actions
must be taken to stop this from happening. However, the efforts by the
gun control supporters to eliminate the legal ownership of firearms do
not address the real problem, and simply disarm the innocent law-abiding
citizens who might need firearms for self-defense. There are three main
reasons why gun control law should take firearms from hands of
criminals, not law-abiding citizens, first historically legal ownership
of firearms in America, second if Congress passes laws restricting
ownership of firearms, as a result it will affect law-abiding people
only, third statistic shows that the people who go through legal process
of obtaining permits do not want to break the law.            

First of all to understand the reasons of the gun control efforts, we
must take a look at the history of America, and the role firearms have
played in it. The second amendment of the Constitution of the United
States makes firearm ownership legal in this country; it says, “… The
right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”(1).
Firearms in the new world were used initially for hunting, and for
self-defense. However, when the colonists felt that the burden of
British oppression was too much for them, they picked up their personal
firearms and went to war. The founding fathers of the country understood
that an armed populace aided in fighting off oppression. They made the
right to keep and bear arms a constitutionally guaranteed right. Thomas
Jefferson wrote, “No man shall ever be debarred the use of arms“(2). 

Second, today Congress, claiming that they want to take guns out of the
hands of criminals, has worked to pass legislation that would take the
guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens instead. The point is the
efforts of gun control do not address the real problem of crime.
Therefore, if congress passes laws restricting ownership of firearms, as
a result this will affect law-abiding people only. Criminals will
continue to violate these laws, they will continue to carry their
firearms, and they will that commit a crime much easier when they know
that their victims will be unarmed. Unarmed victims will have small
chance against an armed one. In many states, including Florida and
Texas, citizens have stated that they want to keep their right to carry
firearms for self- defense. Since the late 1980's, Florida has been
issuing concealed weapons permits to law-abiding citizens, and these
