My Essay on Gun Control for my English Class:

Gun Control – Should We, Or Should We Not?

The issue of gun control has come up recently as an important decision opportunity for our country. Many people are asking whether guns really are the helpful tool that many of us have been saying they are, or if they are the killing machines they have recently been publicized as. Gun Control: The Great Cop-out by Jared Machaud and Gun Control and the Constitution by David B. Rivkin Jr. and Andrew M. Grossman effectively display the anti-gun control side of this discussion; whereas The Second Amendment is all for Gun Control by Adam Winkler and Making Gun Control Happen by Patrick Radden Keefe ...view middle of the document...

In the article, Gun Control and the Constitution by David B. Rivkin Jr. and Andrew M. Grossman, the constitutionality of the many regulations that would be inflicted—should gun control be passed—are examined thoroughly. Although requiring background checks on all gun purchases seems like a good idea, the only individuals it would affect are the law-abiding citizens. Criminals tend to ignore laws; hence they are called criminals, and inflicting “excessive waiting periods, registration fees and the like” on law-abiding citizens who are already following the law would only tell you that everyone buying a gun is an upstanding individual (Rivkin & Grossman). In essence, law-abiding citizens will be jumping through hoops in order to get a gun to protect themselves with and the criminals will continue to get their guns through illegal venues as they always have. Background checks would only cause tedious paperwork for those individuals who do not have their mind set on murdering children.

However, publicly displaying the way we feel about these criminals through the social media and by speaking out may have an influence that we may not be aware of. The public opinion means more than we know to criminals; they are always looking for attention, if they can grab you and cause you to be infuriated by their actions then they have achieved their ultimate goal. In the article, Gun Control: The Great Cop-Out, Jared Machaud writes about an off-duty deputy sheriff in San Antonio that was faced with a similar situation to the Sandy Hook tragedy, however, they shot the perpetrator dead before dozens of innocent civilians could be murdered. Had the newspapers publicized this incident, as it happened two days after the Sandy Hook tragedy, “how much more difficult would it be for the next human scum to…murder...
