There are multiple reasons that guns should be banned according to liberal lawmakers. Statistically speaking, gun bans seem to lower violent crime rates in highly populated areas. However, those statistics appear to be wrong when you hear about the violent crimes that are committed even with a ban on guns already in place. Just because there are laws in place controlling gun doesn’t necessarily mean that you will stop gun violence completely. Many liberals will argue that when you make something illegal, it will completely disappear and no longer be an issue.
However, many of us in today’s society know that this isn’t the case by simply looking at the war on drugs. Even though drugs are illegal, it doesn’t necessary mean that they aren’t available. If a person wants something bad enough, they will find a way to get it.
There have also been discussions regarding the second amendment and what it means in today’s society. Back when it was written, it is suggested that they were simply talking about muskets and that there was no way of knowing that more violent, high powered weapons would be introduced into society. Guns should be banned for no other reason other than they are dangerous to society as a whole and if placed in the wrong hands can have deadly consequences.
