Collaborative efforts surrounding gun control are mandatory in the consideration of rights to bear arms. We must try and do something about the desperate need to protect the public from public shootings. To cling to laws that only protect private life and not public life, and after so many public casualties is highly controversial. We don’t want to be counter productive to a community strong nation by being bias.
Finding a middle ground to relate to one another while understanding each other’s reasoning will help bring tensions down and allow a more substantial conversation. We can adhere to the Second Amendment, and also create laws that help prevent weapons of war getting into reckless hands by implementing strategies that help educate and prevent violence are tools that can help public accountability.
Continuing to educate and build healthy environments is a focal point where genuine concerns about gun control don’t go underestimated. No more are guns to blame for mass shootings than Hollywood, or gaming, or TV or the internet, but guns are something tangible. We sadly lower the virtue of our rights to bear arms if we show no restraint and accountability to their public presents, no matter the cost to the industry. It is an industry that needs to be held more accountable because they hold life in their hands.
It is natural and progressive for social eras to reevaluate social boundaries that hold us together. What is mandatory to survive, and what is hindering our social customs change during conflict, demanding growth and rewriting the rules. We are searching as a nation for ways to come together and stabilize what defines us as American, and also how to protect our rights while finding harmony with our social customs. Identifying with the rights to bear arms is a common denominator, but let’s find a common denominator around gun laws. Laws can be unjust. People and life unjust, but what works best for both worlds? At least, what works better than now?
