Against Gun Control

By: Sydney Dodson

The government should not control our guns because:

  • The second amendment
  • People will use other weapons
  • Guns save lives

The second amendment

  • A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
  • The second amendment states that we have the right to bear arms
  • That amendment was put there in the first place so that we could protect ourselves from the government.
  • A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

People will grab other weapons

  • People will grab other things if you take their guns away
  • They're criminals in the first place, they don’t follow the law
  • A woman in Rochdale got stabbed in the face and the neck with a screwdriver
  • People do not care if you take away their guns, they will find other things.

Guns save lives

  • If you take guns away more people will be killed
  • One night, a man walked into a Portland, Oregon mall and began firing. Obviously the shooter, Jacob Roberts, was an imbecile to start with, since he managed to kill only two people before turning a gun on himself, but that's not the whole story. A man, Nick, shot him before he killed anyone else. He made sure to wait until the bystanders were out of the way. Guns save lives.
  • As many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse
  • Of the 2.5 million times citizens use their guns to defend themselves every year, the overwhelming majority merely brandish their gun or fire a warning shot to scare off their attackers. Less than 8% of the time, a citizen will kill or wound his/her attacker.
Myth: Gun Control Reduces Crime

Conclusion

  • The second amendment states that we have the right to bear arms.
  • Other objects will be used if you take guns away.
  • Guns save lives.
