Gun control means having a ban or restriction on guns. There are both pros and cons for having gun control. The final decision will either have a positive or negative affect. Most crimes are committing using a gun. Having gun control could positively affect the numbers of deaths caused by guns. A negative affect could be people not having the right to protect oneself in any sort of situation they may be in.
We believe that the 2nd amendment right should still remain intact. We don't think that guns should be banned. However, there should be stricter gun laws. People who have a criminal record are not allowed access to a weapon. We feel that along with a criminal background check, a mental background check should be given as well. Most criminals that use guns to commit their crimes have a mental illness of some sort. As long as you're not diagnosed as a psychopath or a criminal, by all means have a gun! The gun isn't the reason people commit murder, it's their mindset. Though, it's still really important not to hand a mentally unhinged person a weapon.
