Thus, n trying to restrict guns in the population in the efforts of reducing mass shootings in the public will not only be detrimental consequences but also one which will leave the public exposed to gangs and criminals who are equipped with mostly illegal firearms that have been bought in the black market.
The individuals against gun control mainly consider controlling guns will not solve the existing challenges created by guns such as crimes or mass shootings.
Having the right to control guns is an effective deterrent.
It should be understood that cases of mass shootings that are carried by criminals are achieved primarily due to having supply of illegal arms in trade.
Since there is a lot of money that is made in the black market, there is a need of having to understand that somebody will profit from selling these illegal firearms in the black market and they later settle on the wrong hands.
It is for this reason that controlling guns will not be an effective mechanism since criminals do not operate on the laws of demand and supply.
Instead the main reasons that lead to them performing heinous acts such as mass shooting lies solely in issues such as their psychotic behavior (Mc Clellan, Chandler & Erdal 623).In one side of the debate, there are individuals who favor having restrictions placed over guns.On the other hand, there are individuals who are opposed towards regulating and controlling guns.As a result, criminals are known to obtain these firearms in an easy way as long as they have money to spend in buying them.If criminals want a gun, there is nothing that will stop them from accessing one.Gun control can only have meant a change in the use of weapons used to carry out certain crimes.This can mean that there has been no improvement in crime rate due to gun control.To this end, there is a need of seeking mechanism which should be used at taming these criminals from performing or carrying out their activities within the public.Since past and present laws have failed towards enacting stringent measures of controlling and regulating selling of firearms to criminals, there is a need of looking for alternative perspectives that have led towards this crisis.The laws and regulations that are placed for gun laws have in no way the capacity of controlling or curtailing the selling of illegal guns to gangs and criminals.The state of Chicago for incidence does not allow for the selling of handguns (Siegel 1123).
