Gun Control
By Chris Du

Gun control is such a controversial topic that leads to arguments of whether it should be legalized or not. The idea that we would not be able to defend ourselves seems ridiculous. Making stricter gun laws will only further the pain caused to our country through the many instances that have occurred in the past and recently. In response to this, we should keep the guns legal and keep our future safe.
My Opinion
Criminals will only break the laws
The unofficial slogan of the National Gun Association “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” (NGA) basically says it all. Shootings do not simply happen from the gun itself, but the person behind the gun. By creating stricter gun laws, it will restrict those who obey the law and could possibly increase crime even more.
Self Defense
Imagine your in the middle of the street without any self defense, then out of no where a stranger comes up to you and wants to do stuff/get your personal information. What do you do? Of course you would run away or try to defend yourself, but if you had a weapon the person couldn't harm you. These kinds of situations happen all the time, just listen to your daily news. Usually these types of things don't end up well. This is why we need to keep guns. A simple hand gun is a effective and inexpensive way to keep our body safe.
The Overview
Gun Violence has promoted many debates about America's love for guns and it's impact on society. America has more private gun ownership than any other country in the world. (approximately 230 million guns). Gun violence has taken place all around the u.s. and killed many citizens. This has included the Columbine shooting, Aurora movie theater shooting and the Arapahoe High School shooting.
General Facts
* Firearms are generally classified into three broad types: handguns, rifles, and, shotguns. Rifles and shotguns are both considered "long guns."

* A semi-automatic firearm fires one bullet each time the trigger is pulled, ejects the shell of the fired bullet, and automatically loads another bullet for the next pull of the trigger. A fully automatic firearm (sometimes called a "machine gun") fires multiple bullets with the single pull of the trigger.
I believe that gun control will not work. I believe that guns are not weapons, they are tools. How they are used is up to the person holding it. Guns themselves can't decide where the bullet goes. It is only on the person that decides what the gun does.

Another thing to think about is the people who are not criminals or police officers, but normal citizens. Some of my friends I know personally own guns. they use them for hunting and sport shooting. Others might use them for the olympics, this could be shooting clay birds or doing a leisure activity like paintball. Guns have been contributing many factors in our community for recreation. They have also developed into a sport.
