I think the most important thing overall is simply guns can't hurt people by themselves. People hurt people, guns are just a means of doing so. A gun sitting alone can't shoot someone on its own. But I understand the counterpoint without guns we would be perfectly safe. But why would we ever remove legal guns. That wouldn't remove illegal guns just like illegal drugs. At the end of the day anyone that wants something could get it. So removing guns would just leave people that do things legally like obtaining a gun would be defenseless. Criminals are willing to obtain a gun illegally. As for your law abiding citizen would be out of luck. That's simply why controlling guns is more effective than banning them. Let’s put guns in better hands. In the hands of the people that need them not abuse them.
I believe a gun ban violates our seconds amendment. But gun control might be a viable option. I believe we should keep track of guns and how they are distributed. That means guns being sold from a gun store and reselling of guns through private seller. I don’t think its right to take guns away completely because then that leaves people without a method of self defense. The criminals that are willing to get guns illegally still after banning guns would have a huge advantage over an everyday citizen that isn't willing to do such thing. I feel it should be less about how to get rid of guns and focus more on controlling them. That means heavy background checks that focus on past history if any criminal history felony wise should disqualify you. Reason for needing a gun should be addressed and the gun should come with some sort of safety guidelines to help first time gun owners. If we can't stop guns from being a thing we need to know who we are arming. In a perfect world no one would need guns but I know with the rate of guns constantly going up. That we live in a gun world and at the end of the day the only way to keep people safe in it is controlling the guns we already have. But i don’t believe all guns should get a spot in our world. Some fully automatic guns are simply too big for self defense and hunting so for that reason I feel they aren’t necessary. I feel these options on gun control are the best choices. It keeps guns safer but at the same time it doesn't take guns away from the people who aren't abusing them. I believe all of this would help better control guns in the United States. Because at the end of the day a gun isn't deadly by itself. It requires a person to use it before it becomes lethal. So if we focus more on whose hands the guns are in instead of the guns them self. We will be much better off and our safety will be better preserved. This is how I believe the issue of guns should be handled.
