Here at Rally Point Apparel we are pro-gun. We support every American’s 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms. It’s very unfortunate that you can’t turn on the news anymore without hearing a tragic story about a mass shooting. How do we stop this gun violence? Do we impose harsh restrictions on gun control? Do we make it hard for criminals and mentally unstable people to purchase guns legally?
Politicians seem to get in an uproar over gun control laws. They claim that a more strict set of gun control laws will help prevent gun violence. I agree that there definitely needs to be regulations on obtaining a gun. I can’t help but wonder that out of all of the gun related crimes committed in this country each year…how many of those crimes committed were committed with guns that were purchased illegally.
The truth of the matter is that guns don’t kill people! People kill people. Gun control laws will definitely help curb gun violence, but ultimately it is the person behind the gun that that pulls the trigger. I believe that all the gun control laws in the world aren’t going to stop criminals from purchasing guns. If somebody really wants to get a gun they will find a way to get a gun. Whether that be by purchasing it legally or illegally.
“Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” Does a gun load bullets into a clip or magazine by itself? No, a person does that. A gun doesn’t take site and aim at a person by itself does it? No, a person picks up a gun and points it at another person. A trigger on the gun doesn’t squeeze itself. A person pulls the trigger.
