Amending the law is the solution for reducing firearm related deaths, violent deaths, which are certain to occur when there is a weapon that can come into the hands of those who are least equipped emotionally and mentally to handle it (Masters, 2016). Many argue that it’s a human rights and freedom issue, but if the US thinks that everyone deserves a right to purchase and possess guns, it means that its internal police security is absolutely weak and is fractured, as they are the ones owing a duty of care toward its citizens. Weapons are only fit for those who need it most, and they are the national guards, police, security agents, and not common citizen who claims to own guns.
When a citizen is in possession of a weapon, the thought of using it arises by default, similar to any consumer product bought is poised to be used over time. But when there is no weapon in possession even if there is an intense thought of using it there is no possibility of actually using it since gun possession is restricted through law, which is what the government must execute. Once the gun is sold, the government and security agents do not have the wherewithal in a country like the US to keep a check on its use by the possessor. Hence, a dire necessity of amending gun laws and curbing its use by citizens, who for the most popular reasons do not need it is essential, which if not done may indicate the uselessness of the police and the security guards of the nation.
