I believe that gun control laws should be on the dangerous people that carry guns to rob people or kill people and not on the people that use guns for self-defense or hunting. But a lot of people passed away from a gun. Some people think guns shouldn't even exist because of the reasons people use them for.
People that have a gun for safety is for something that happened to them or if they got robbed or threatened before or might need one for safety depending where they live and how bad the neighborhood is. When I was little till now my uncle has carried a gun for safety because of where we live. Guns are used for self-defense 2.5 million times a year. The police cannot protect everyone all of the time. 61% of men and 56% of women surveyed by pew research said that stricter gun laws would “make it more difficult for people to protect their homes and families.
People that use guns for hunting is a good reason because some people hunt for money or food. Hunting has been going on for many years. People use the food to feed their families or to sell it or they hunt for animals with a lot of fur and sale it to companies or keep it for themselves as decoration. In 2011,there were 13.7 million hunters 16 year old or older in the united states and they spent $7.7 billion on guns, sights, ammunition, and other hunting equipment. High powered semiautomatic rifles and shotguns are used to hunt and in target shooting tournaments each year.
Another reason is that many people have died from a gun but sometimes is not their fault. Some people commit suicide or get killed in a mass shooting which is not their fault but some have used guns against other people which is a bad reason for people to own guns because they can use it to rob or kill people. An incredible amount of people in the United States die from gun violence. More than 30,000 people die in the U.S. every year. That is more people killed than by liver disease, hypertension. Parkinson's disease, fires, drowning,and machinery accidents.
Some gun owners are not bad people some people use it for self-defense or hunting.People that use is on other people or robbing people makes gun owners look bad because people think they might use it against other people or a worse thing.But people that use it in a good way should keep their guns and people that are dangerous shouldn't have guns at all.If someone wants to get a gun they should do a background check first before selling them a gun.California require background checks on all gun purchases but other states like Florida do not require background check.The United States needs to have laws that make it harder to get guns.We don't need to ban guns but only prevent the wrong people from getting them.
