We have seen the drastic differences between: Federal, State and County gun control measures and the confusion associated with them.
Crime arming themselves do have a positive effect on reducing national crime rates. SUMMARY Slide 23 We do understand, that criminals will continue to get guns to commit crimes.
If our country had a nationally accepted gun control law, perhaps more civilians would consider arming themselves in defense of their family. This would have the effect of eliminating the restrictions in those areas that ban them currently as well as level the laws and punishment across the nation.
Now that you have seen one of the problems with gun control in our country, the different laws between states and the effectiveness of carrying a weapon in personal defense it is time for US to act as Americans. We need to let our elected leaders know that we want a National Gun Control Standard enacted, ensuring our rights in all 50 states.
