Imagine enjoying a movie at Cinema 10 eating a meal at Taco Bell or even sitting in a history class at Carman-Ainsworth High School while people all around you are carrying loaded guns Although this may seem unbelievable it is possible because the second amendment of the United States Constitution gives citizens the right to possess and carry guns It is understandable that Americans would want to possess guns such as shotguns and rifles for the popular sport of hunting However it is ridiculous that our government would allow people to carry handguns Handgun possession should be strictly limited because they are made solely to kill people they have increased the murder rate in the US and they have even allowed children to easily kill other children The first reason handguns should be outlawed for ordinary citizens is because their main purpose is simply to kill other human beings Why would our country allow us to have the right to own an object that is deadly Our government seems to want to protect us For example seatbelt laws and motorcycle helmet laws were created to protect our lives The Environmental Protection Agency EPA enforces pollution laws to keep us safe and healthy The Food and Drug Administration FDA inspects food and tests drugs to make sure American citizens are not harmed by nasty food and dangerous drugs Yet our government allows just about anybody to own and walk around with guns It does not appear our government really cares about our safety If it did handguns would be outlawed for the general public because their only purpose is to kill people Second we should ban the possession of handguns because the homicide and robbery rate in the US is much greater than in Canada where there are stricter handgun laws From 1987 to 1996 52 of all homicides in the US involved handguns while only 14 of all homicides in Canada involved handguns
