After several mass shootings that happened in the recent few years, and especially, the most recent one in Newtown, Connecticut, that left twenty elementary school kids dead, and seven others including teachers and the school principal; the dialogue about gun control in the United States is now open!
Many Americans have recently showed concerns about having some sort of gun control that will limit criminals from buying semi-automatic guns or assault weapons in general. On Monday night, CNN host Piers Morgan was taken down by Alex Jones, a pro-guns activist. The Piers Morgan guest appeared to be a terrifying, out of control guns lover. He said that he owns more than 50 guns to protect himself and his family from the government. Is that what second amendment about? How many guns do you need to protect yourself?
Mr. Jones’ philosophy: more guns, less crime! Although, crime numbers prove it wrong! Imagine more than 11,000 Americans die every year by gun crimes. It’s a gun war that is destroying America!
We all respect the second amendment and the right to bear an arm. But, there’s absolutely no need for such a destructive philosophy! Find data yourself about gun crimes in the US, in your state, and compare it to other countries such as Australia, Canada, Britain and Germany. I am sure you’ll be surprised, and maybe change your understanding of the right to bear arms!
