Following almost every mass shooting in the United States anti-gun activists demand stricter gun laws, in hopes that this will prevent another mass shooting from happening. Anti-gun activists have even gone as far as saying that the Second Amendment should be revised or completely repealed.
I believe, if the government were to impose stricter gun-control laws they simply would not work, but let’s say they the government did, it would be a daunting task to enforced nationwide.
Gun-control advocates argue that if laws were put in place that made it much more difficult to purchase firearms or even if some types of firearms were banned, less mass shooting will happen. I could see a law as such if enacted only offering “temporary relief.” I say temporary because of the ubiquity of guns in America.
If guns were not so ubiquitous here in the US, then gun stricter gun laws may work and I would be all for it. At this point, it will be hard to find a solution that can prevent further mass shooting from happening, one that works.
Before the frequent occurrences of mass shootings, people in the US have been stockpiling assault rifles and other guns of that sort. The use of guns is engrained into the DNA of the US it’s almost like a cultural staple to own a gun. With stricter gun laws people see this as a violation of the Second Amendment, and some may do whatever it takes to protect this right.
