Gun control—the heavy topic in America
It is reported that a new round of a heated debate on whether gun should be banned has aroused in America in the face of frequent gun violence. Gun-supporters and protestants spare no efforts in defending their own standpoint but never succeed in reaching an agreement. The protestants even provoked the movement of legislation of banning guns, strongly urging that legislation be made to ban guns. They believe individuals’ gun-ownership is the trigger to the bloodshed and it is irresponsible for the government to do nothing regardless of people’s life. However, the supporters hold that gun ownership is individuals’ right, and the government has no right to ban guns. Many Americans resonate with the supporters’ views that human factors contribute the most.
the disputes on whether to ban guns not only take place among non-governmental organizations and the public but also in the Republicans and Democrats. Gun control issue has become a major focus in two parties’ political differences. Democrats support gun control and prohibition, while the Republicans advocate private gun ownership.
As an outsider, I consistently insist that personal security and social stability cannot be solved merely through guns. Will gun prohibition make a difference if our community is congested with injustice, evil, greed, malice, jealousy, resentment, conspiracy, arrogance and cold blood?
it seems that gun control in America is not only a matter of political vote and gambling, but rather a profound matter of tradition, culture and laws. Perhaps gun control acts can never be passed and draconian gun control is a mission impossible to accomplish.
