U.S. Ground Laws
Gun laws in the U.S. have been the pillar of the needed change in regulating firearm ownership and use in the country. One of the most demanding issues in the U.S. is the need to rectify and put sanity in the whole sector of firearm acquisition and use. There are also different rules for which different types of guns people are allowed to own and – again – these vary from state to state. The various issues surrounding gun ownership and use has dealt a heavy cost on many Americans that has raised the concern of public safety. The congressional debates have produced little solutions that continues to reduce the effectiveness of the gun control laws (Fox et al., 2016). The National Riffles Association as the biggest agency in the gun business has been accused of being adamant in bringing change in the country in the area of gun laws. Most laws that have been passed in trying to regulate gun ownership and use have done little to put sanity in the business.
To add on this, the various norms and aspects of regulations ad local rules have proved ineffective to put the dangers associated with illegal gun ownership to a stop. The whole debate about putting gun laws has revolved around the liberals and the conservatives. In the midst of all the neglect and failure of the government is the increased shootings and loss of innocent lives that needs to be addressed urgently (Fox et al., 2016). In addition, the value of increased safety has never been higher as the need for effective gun laws continue to rise. The solution to the issues of gun violence and innocent killings lies in creating firm laws that can help address all aspects of lawlessness. The US needs to create reliable and strong laws that can prevent irresponsible and illegal gun possession that will prevent criminals from accessing the firearms.
