Gun control is a controversial issue for a long time around the world, particularly in U.S. because of a lots of mass shooting in school and public places. The second Amendment of the U.S. constitution is one of the shortest in all of the bill of right, it was written by the time period of American’s birth and it is the spirit of self-defense that help the new citizens of U.S. win their own freedom from the British. But now as the gun shooting problem happening every day in America, this gun control problem has gradually become to a hot issue. Compare to other countries like Britain, Canada, Japan, China, the difference between U.S. and those countries is in these countries to get a firearm is a very difficult thing and they have very strict gun laws. Gun is very powerful weapon, it would cause serious hurt, even death, we can use gun to protect ourselves or to murder，It is powerful not only to the human but also to the society. I believe the issue is not how many guns are around us but who owns those guns and how the country enforce the gun laws.
Why so many people debate on gun control? Want to find the answer, we might want to look at some statistic. The United States has one of the highest rates of gun violence in the world, homicides by firearm up to 60% and our gun ownership rate is No.1 in the world1. From this data, there is no reason for gun control not become to a hot issue. Many pro-gun rights people are arguing about it is their rights to have a firearm, if this right have been take away, then the government is not far away to take away their other rights, they don’t want to live in a country no longer have freedom. The con-gun rights people are saying that if the government put more gun control or even they can make gun become illegal there would be less deaths. Children will be safer in the school and the school won’t be lockdown because of some crazy people with guns trying to shooting kids.
Guns are really not the root of all
