Are We Really That Irresponsible? by Paulette Thomason
So I've noticed all the talk lately in the news on gun control and gun laws. Back and forth Americans argue on the subject. Settling this subject isn't as easy as it may seem to some. In fact, if you really do your research and look at both sides with an open minded, logical approach, you'll come to see the choice isn't so easy after all.
With all the unnecessary and violent shootings happening lately, it seems like gun control might not be such a bad idea. I mean, it is pretty lame to pay $20 for a movie ticket and end up being shot up instead. Or an even better example, the guy who pulled off the elementary school shooting in Connecticut and killed a group of innocent kids? These are horrible events that sadly occur, but it wasn't ever the guns fault, now was it? It was the deranged or misunderstood man or woman behind it.
That's completely stating the obvious, I know, but bear with me here. For some strange reason, backgroundchecks don't seem to be too terribly effective with weeding out the mentally unstable. Why? I dunno, but either way these people keep getting a hold of guns and committing mass murders. Then again, the internet might be at service for these social maniacs.
Anyone in this day and age know that you can get just about anything over the internet, as long as you know where to go and how to play your cards right. I'm willing to bet that guns are one of the easiest things to purchase online. Give it a try and look for yourself, there are plenty of firearms for fairly low prices. And obviously, the people selling these weapons aren't quite as capable of making background checks on their customers.
Guns aren't a bad thing though, they just get used in horrid situations by mentally unstable people. If used in a 'right sense', guns can play a valuable part in saving a victims life. I don't think many can argue there. I'd choose my life over someone who was attempting to do harm, wouldn't you? It seems fair for 'stable' people who want to protect themselves or their loved ones shouldn't have to work so hard for a simple defense.
Maybe we just are too indecisive at the moment to make further progress in this debate. Neither side can 'agree to disagree', nor can they come up with a seemingly 'fair' compromise.
