Stricter handgun control laws and licensing are necessary to save lives

Thesis Statements:

Stricter handgun control laws and licensing are necessary to save lives.

My Position on the topic:

• Buyers that purchase firearms through private sales in the U.S. don’t have to pass a background check before obtaining possession of the weapon. This includes sales to criminals, felons, and people with a history of severe mental illness. ( Do Something .org)

• U.S. Has More Guns – And Gun Deaths – Than Any Other Country, Study Finds (ABC News)

Oppoising Stricter Gun laws:

• More guns equal less crime(Since 1988, gun ownership has increased over 1200% while at the same time gun deaths and gun crimes in general have decreased by almost 60%.)

• Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. (The unofficial slogan of the National Gun Association “guns don’t kill people, people kill people” (NGA) basically says it all.)
