    Gun control debate: Background checks

    Gun Laws


    I personally own guns because I enjoy shooting them and I like to feel like I can protect my home if a threat to my well being or those around me is evident. I personally beleive as citizens we should be able to protect ourselves if some tragic event was to occur in the United States. A terrible and outdated example of civilians without arms could be Jewish people defenseless in Warsaw or the mass war crimes in China in the same time frame. It is hard to say if things would have occurred differently if citizens were armed but it is a thought and point in the debate about styles of arms. You would hope the military would be able to defend every civilian but sometimes that doesn't happen as history has shown us.
