The United State local body governments and state department tightening the laws to protect civil rights of the ordinary countrymen The more restrictive gun control and gun ownership laws put US citizens in unreasonable risks. On 1999 Harvard School of Public Health study conducted a brief analysis and came with conclusion of “The citizens of America feel less safe while most of their countrymen carrying guns. More than 90% people wants to prohibit ordinary citizen from carrying guns in public places like places of worship, temple, hospital, college campuses, stadium, restaurants and hotels.
Whatever the reason we have the civil rights of every ordinary citizen must be protect. As per the federal law “An ordinary citizen has full rights to protect him/herself from danger by the use of guns”. On other side the mishandling of the use of guns must be prohibited examples cited include the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting deaths of 32 students and teachers and the 1999 killings at Colorado’s Columbine High School of 13 students and teachers. 2. Provide an action plan for PREVENTING civil rights violations related gun control in the US
Most of the developing countries like India, China having more stringent laws for gun ownership. These measures are practically proven that able to reduce the gun-related civil right violations and crimes. As a developed country US has liberal laws towards gun ownerships. First of all US must enact the stringent laws for gun ownership. The person who wants to own gun must be aged above 18 or 21. Purchasing the guns like vegetables must be prohibited, before purchasing the gun one must get ratification from a designated local body authority and Licence system should be introduced for owning gun.
Students must be strictly prohibited from use of guns as per Children’s Defense Fund and National Center for Health Statistics , In a single year, 3,012 children and teens were killed by gunfire in the United States, according to the latest national data released in 2002. That is one child every three hours; eight children every day; and more than 50 children every week. And every year, at least 4 to 5 times as many kids and teens suffer from non-fatal firearm injuries.
Before purchasing the gun one must clearly mention the reasons why he/she need gun, we can’t allow everyone to own the gun without any valuable reasons like real threat of safety or any other means of threaten, since majority of the suicides associated with guns. 3. Provide an action plan for RESOLVING civil rights violations as they related to gun control in the US Most of the gun owners in US said that they are using the gun for self defence. An independent survey by Harvard 1999 study indicates “More than 30,000 U. S. men, women and children die each year from gunshot wounds, the highest homicide rate from guns in the world.
Of those 30,000 deaths, only about 1,500 are due to accidental shootings. ” To resolve these kinds of issues laws should be tightened for purchasing and owning guns, the tax rate for the guns must be hiked more than 150% in this way people will think twice before purchasing the gun once it’s too costly and this was practically proven in Japan. The crimes happening by the use of guns should be treated differently and the miss-use of gun should be punished besides the original crime. Once he/she booked for crime associate with gun then that particular person should be banned to won/use guns in his/her lifetime.
