Gun Rights In USA Essay

Introduction

Gun rights are fundamental rights of Americans granted by the US Constitution.

Thesis statement: Even though the rights to bear arm is granted by the US Constitution, the high risks and mortality associated with use or misuse of guns raises the debate concerning the possible ban of guns, which fails to overcome fundamentals of the US Constitution.

            Background of the problem

Historically, gun rights were fundamental rights of Americans granted by the US Constitution and Americans are not actually ready to refuse from their rights to bear and possess guns. However, the emerging crime rates and accidents involving the gun use raise the public movement to ban gun rights.

            Arguments for gun rights

Gun rights are granted by the US Constitution. Constitutional rights cannot be changed under the impact of changing circumstances like growing or declining crime rates

Gun rights ensure security of Americans. Gun rights allow more effective protection of life, health, and property.

Gun rights do not mean uncontrollable sales of gun to everyone. Gun cannot be sold to minors or individuals with criminal records, for example.

            Arguments against gun rights

Guns are sources of excessive danger. Misuse and accidents involving guns cause many deaths in the US annually.

Gun may be used in crimes, while gun rights make guns more available to criminals. The access of all Americans to guns increases the risk of criminals’ access to guns too.

Gun rights and possession of guns can have a negative impact on individual behavior. People possessing guns may behave more challenging provoking conflicts and using guns just because they possess guns and are certain in their supremacy over their victims or opponents.

Conclusion

Thus, the debate over gun use persists but safety of Americans granted by gun rights cannot be sacrificed because of poor control over gun sales and misuse of guns.
