obvious that guns are harmful and bad to the community,
but nonetheless they will never go away. There’s
just something about these insignificant beings we
call Homo-sapiens; we are greedy, ignorant and afraid.
During World War II America feared that Hitler would
build the first nuclear bomb. So America went over
to Germany saved the Jewish scientists who were constructing
this weapon of mass destruction and had them build
it for America. During the Cold War the Soviet Union
and America were both building weapon after weapon.
America fears Cuba because they have a nuclear bomb.
If not for fear we would’ve already invaded
the island. More recently the War on Terror; Bush
thought Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,
therefore he invaded Iraq and relieved him of his
power and most recently, America wants to stop Iran
from building nuclear weapons.
These examples show how greedy, ignorant and afraid
we are as human beings. They all explain why we will
always have weapons. Whether they’re guns or
nuclear missiles if one has it then the other must
try to gain it or they will be at a disadvantage (fear)
and those who do have it will use it as a means to
take advantage of the weak (greed). Sooner or later
someone somewhere will push that deadly button creating
a huge epidemic that will bring this planet we call
Earth hanging on the thinnest of threads.
So what do we do as people? How do we prevent the
inevitable? How far do we go to stop destiny? That’s
something that’ll never be answered. If by some
chance it is answered the results will either be too
late or will just fail completely. We can’t
stop it, we as human beings can only delay it, but
inevitably it is going to happen. Maybe, just maybe
if we weren’t so greedy, ignorant and afraid
then we could do something else. How I wish for that
|The United States of America
preaches that we have a constitutional right to bear
arms, but I do not believe that the current destructiveness
of guns is what the framers anticipated. Guns in our
modern day lives are nothing but dangers to the communities
Many may argue that they have a legal
right to guns, but I protest the illegalities of them.
The dangers lie in unregistered guns, automatic and
assault weapons which are often used against law enforcement,
and gun safety in the home.
Unregistered weapons can
often be found in the hands of a potential criminal.
It allows the person to go about freely with misuse
or abuse of the weapon. The crime rate involving firearms
are often found to have strong ties to weapons which
have not been registered with the local police department.
Criminals use this as a safety canvas to shoot and
dump a weapon used in a violent act. Automatic and
assault weapons are especially dangerous because they
are not designated for domestic uses. These sorts
of guns more often then not fall into the hands of
people who have only evil intentions.
The fear should
not only be in the minds of the police who attempt
to stop these perpetrators, pedestrians should be
afraid as well. There have been too many incidents
of rival gangs settling a score with a “drive
by” and some unsuspecting kid gets hit in the
crossfire. The future of our children is definitely
my cause for objecting to gun use. Can it be denied
that we live in a weapons age? Kids as early as age
3 can mimic the use of a gun killing another person
Video games are the worst influence because
they exist to foster a violent mind and carry the
message that killing and hurting only bring you closer
to your goal. I have strong objections to this because
our current state of war uses this to recruit future
soldier’s, kids which find simple joy in what
they think is simple killing. Solution stop gun envy
reduce war hunger.
