Gun Control

The Two Sides

Pro & Against

People who are Pro Gun control (usually Democrats) argue guns kill people, and people who are against gun control (usually Republicans) argue guns don't kill people, people kill people. Against also preech the 2nd amendment of the right to bear arms, and also argue that gun control is taking away their second amendment right to keep and bear arms.

-Court Case- In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

Personal View

My personal view on the issue is neutral. Some points the Republicans make i agree with, such as people should be able to own a gun for self defense purposes. i think people should be allowed to keep a gun to defend themselves against criminals and other threats to their well-being, but the Democrats do have a point when they make the statement that the wrong people are getting their hands on guns, and to solve this i think there should be more In depth background checks on people purchasing guns.
