Why Gun Control is bad for America

Proof Gun Control Doesn't Work!!!

Gun control Doesn't work

When you take away people guns; you take away their right to protect themselves. If somebody has an unregistered gun then you cannot track it, and you would only be taking away guns from law abiding. Most people who have unregistered guns are criminals, thus taking away registered guns would not take away the guns that are used in crimes. "But, if the hard facts show that gun-control laws do not actually control guns, but instead lead to more armed robberies and higher murder rates after law-abiding citizens are disarmed, then gun-control laws would be a bad idea, even if there were no Second Amendment and no National Rifle Association." ("Do Gun-Control Laws Control Guns? | National Review Online")

Gun control leaves the people defenseless

Gun control disarms the people, and takes away the people right to protect themselves. In history when guns are taken away from the people it leads to mass murders. "After the rise of the Nazi’s, Germany established their version of gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and others, who were unable to defend themselves against the “Brown Shirts”, were arrested and exterminated." ("Why Gun Control Is Bad for America") This shows that when guns are taken away it leaves the people defenseless and they can then be persecuted.

Gun rights need to be preserved

People claim that not all guns are necessary, and that the capacity of a magazine needs to be changed, but how many rounds is enough to protect your family from harm. "Anyone who faces three home invaders, jeopardizing himself or his family, might find 30 bullets barely adequate. After all, not every bullet hits, even at close range, and not every hit incapacitates. You can get killed by a wounded man." (National Review). People may say that assault style weapons are nothing but a danger to the public, but look a Switzerland; every man in the country receives an assault rifle, but yet there is barely any crime.
