Gun Control

Do you feel safe with the gun laws today?

Are existing gun laws sufficient, or are more gun laws needed?

This issue is very controversial. Some people, like the Democrats of Congress wish to ban, or to have more restrictions on the ownership of guns. They believe this will reduce violence. However others, like the Republicans of Congress strongly support second amendment rights, and would like to just enforce the preexisting gun laws. They will protect the right to bear arms. They also would like to open more public land to hunting.

Donald Trump Vs. Hillary Clinton's Plan

Donald Trump plans to protect second amendment right. Trump believes that getting gangs and drug dealers off the streets in order for crime to go down. Many shootings have a common factor, and that is mental illness. Trump wants to fix the mental health system. This will help shootings decrease, and still be able to have licensed gun owners the right to bear arms. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton believes that guns wont make America any safer and arming people is not the right way to react to terrorism. Hillary wishes to close the loophole in buying weapons. Hillary wants to limit the access to guns and especially keep them out of the wrong hands.

My position

I agree with Donald Trumps views on this issue. I believe crime and death from shootings will decrease if Trumps able to complete his plan. It is a good way for Americans to feel safer and still have legal gun owners be able to have their right to bear arms.
