Gun Control Legislation

Argues that gun control will prevent the unnecessary death of children by gun accidents without harming the rights of lawful gun owners.

In this paper, I discuss a childhood experience I had with firearms and then proceed to argue that while gun control laws don’t prevent criminals from getting guns, they can help reduce the number of childhood deaths resulting from guns. Recent research suggests that legislation which implements safety locks on firearms, forces gun owners to store their weapons more safely and removes the legal loophole at gun shows can help reduce deaths from playing with guns and prevent easy access to firearms. These steps would not infringe on the rights of lawful gun owners and would have real benefits on society.
