For VS. Against
Some people are for gun control, meaning they dont want people to own guns or either have stricter rules for owning a gun and how people can obtain a gun.
Reasons for Gun Control:
1.) Washington DC's low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control,
and Indianapolis' high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun
2.) Seen to help slow and stop crime rate with guns.
3.) Guns are so complex that special training is necessary to use them properly, and
so simple to use that they make murder easy.
Many people feel unsafe with others having guns, and the fact of its so easy for people who are planning to or have commited a crime. Crimminals can obtain a gun easily and can get around the laws that make it so they cant get one. Many people that are for gun control want more stricter laws to stop the use of firearms to kill people.
The other side: Against Gun Control
However, like everything else, there are two sides to this story. There are many people who are against gun control because its in the constitution that every citizen has the right to bear arms. The governemnt is only interfering with these rights of the people. Many feel very strongly that there should be less gun control in the U.S. Some may even argue the fact that it is not the guns who kill people, people are the ones who do the killing. The more the government interres with guns, makes it even harder for people who are responsible obtain a gun. It also reflects back on the people who enjoy guns in sports. Like target practice, hunting and many other enjoyable activities.

Against Gun Control
I stand in the middle on this. Im not on either side, so im moderate in gun control. I dont really mind too much but then again it comes to a certain situations. If people are using them in a wrong way then we should restirct it for them not the reasponisble ones.
