Why gun control is bad?
With people expressing different views on gun control, it is found bad for half of the US residents. Let’s see why gun control is bad. People say if gun control is more then there is reduction in the related crimes as less number of guns is used. Some gun rights advocates say that gun control is against the constitution and they term gun control laws as unconstitutional laws. Every individual has right to own arms for self defense so that they can protect themselves at the time of emergency. By allowing gun control laws, people are disassociated themselves with one of their fundamental rights and is not acceptable at all. Any fundamental right should be expressed to the fullest possible and same thing holds good here also.
