Gun Control 1
Gun Control is one of the leading causes of death today. Gun control has been rising since the early 2000’s. A lot of people say that we do not need it and a lot of people say we do need it. There are several shootings that have been happening because people are being careless ...view middle of the document...
He/She need to buy it from somebody that has a permit to sell guns. A lot of people can buy guns right off the street, but you don’t know if the guns have been used in a crime already. Statistics show that back in 2010, there were 40-45% (47-53 million) households with gun, 30-34%(70-80 million) adults owning a gun, and 17-19%(40-45 million) adults owning a handgun illegally (Agresti and Smith 2010 ). There are two legal options to buy guns. The most common one that everybody should is to buy it from dealer.

That mean that you must pass a background check to make sure that you are not prohibited to purchase the gun.
In some states there is a legally second option which is to buy a gun from a private seller. That mean that you do not have to pass a background check and the this is how the majority of the criminals get their guns. If we could cut down the guns being sold by the private sellers then we could keep down on some of the violence that is happening today.

It would make it harder for the criminals to buy guns that have bad intentions on killing someone. I feel that we all need to work together and get on board at the same time. Everyone need to be on one accord so that we can make this movement. Once the word gets out to the people that if you try to buy guns privately a background check will be done, it will slow them down for getting access to a gun.
We need to have someone train you to use a gun. The best option would be to sign up for a course training class so that you can be trained by a professional to show you the proper use of a gun. There are so many accidents that can happen when you don’t do the right thing. While taking the course for your training, make sure you learn how to shoot the gun. Many Americans can stop violence if they get trained to use the gun. A lot of us do not know how to use the safety on the gun because they were not trained properly and by not being trained can harm yourself or someone else. You should not pull the gun out unless you are feeling that your life is being
