The current gun control laws should be strictly enforced to avoid creating new laws. News laws make it harder on law abiding citizens to purchase firearms, ammunition, and magazines/clips. Some feel it would decrease gun violence by creating new laws. This is unfair to thousands of people who are gun advocates, including myself.
Hundreds of thousands of people own a gun, if not more than one gun. In order to become a gun owner, there are legal steps to be followed in order to earn a permit.

America never would have been the same if this amendment was never created.
One law that has always been important, to me, is that convicted felons are not permitted to own a firearm. Generally, convicted felons have committed a violent crime. People who commit violent crimes do not deserve to own a gun, and with all the violence surrounding the American people, presently, this is a fair law.

Although they may not get their weapon legally, they can still get them form the streets. Some people think that getting rid of guns all together is the answer to ending gun violence. An example of a person who against getting rid of guns to stop violence is an author named John Stossel. He wrote an argument about this topic. (Stossel, 2007)
The federal government is very strict when it comes to weapons being purchased. Retail stores have strict regulations, and have to call the FBI to conduct a criminal back round check, to see if the purchaser is eligible for ownership. If the person comes back with no felonies, they can purchase their weapon. Sometimes it is unfair to the purchaser if the gun is put on hold due...
