How can we control the use of guns when law enforcement and military uses such weapons on a regular basis? What would the point be in trying to establish gun control when so many elements such as toys, video games and action movies make the use of a gun look cool and engaging? There are a number of elements that continue to be a problem when trying to establish gun control among society and government bodies that leave many people wondering if it can be done at all? Others feel gun control is a constant losing battle that will never see the light of day no matter how many rules and regulations are enforced to control gun use.
One question many people ask is how can people actually get rid of guns? So many innocent people have lost their lives due to gun violence. You have people that accidently shoot another person because they didn’t know the gun was loaded or that it would go off when they pull the trigger. Then you have people encouraging children to play with guns. Why should a child like to pretend to shoot someone? Why there are toy manufactures producing toy guns and promoting violence? There are gun activists that support the use of guns but many feel their excuses are not enough to keep guns around at all.
Controlling the use of guns has a few snags that need to be worked out, but in many cases it depends on the country you live in. There are some places that have banned the use of a gun. The sounds great but why haven’t other places in the world followed the same example? Gun makers make millions of dollars each year selling them as weapons. People have a right to protect themselves and their families, but few believe there has to be another way to do it instead of with a firearm. There are still problems where mentally unstable individuals are getting their hands on a gun. How can this be stopped?
Gun control needs more regulations and boundaries if society expects to have a safe place to live and raise a family. People know they do not have to buy a gun, but since there are people who carry one as part of their job, others will see this as an opportunity to exercise their rights. This is a conflict many politicians and lawmakers continue to struggle and fight for.
