New Movements in America

Should the federal government decide which firearms to allow and which ones not, for the public? Well according to all of the shootings and people killed, for example the Connecticut elementary shooting and the Colorado Theater for the batman premier, the government should decide which firearms to allow and which not to, because guns are out of control.

There were *various* shootings in 2012, and many *consequences* for the people who lost family members.

The first recent tragic shooting was in Newtown Connecticut where Adam Lanza, 20, had entered Sandy hook elementary. He *established* the *role* of the bad guy in this scene, the shooter. He shot and killed twenty-six people, including twenty children, but then after everything he shot himself. According to the police Adam L. killed his mother at a secondary crime scene, and those guns where legally purchased by the mother of Adam.

On Friday, July 20, 2012, another tragic shooting happened in Aurora, Colorado. The shooter was James Holmes. He made a massive shooting  inside of a Century movie theater, during a midnight screening of the film The Dark knight Rises. James Holmes was, dressed in tactical clothing, the joker. And set off tear gas grenades and shot into the audience with multiple firearms, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. James Holmes was arrested outside the cinema, minutes later.

While community-based *policing* is something of a buzzword, the reality is that it simply isn’t *implemented* to any great degree in the U.S., certainly not with the passion that existed 100 years ago, when people knew the local officers by name. Who are the people’s local police officers now? No idea.

According to the author of the article “JOE BIDEN: GUN OWNERS NOT DRIVEN BY FACTS,” Awr Hawkins “on Feb. 21, Vice President Joe Biden summed up a week of being questioned about gun control by claiming gun owners who’d challenged him had “thrown out question after question… not because they are driven by facts, not because they are looking for a way forward, but because they are looking for roadblocks.””

Joe Biden had also said a few words about gun control. First of all he talked about the gun *functions* and their *various* *consequences*. He then talked about why law-abiding citizens don’t need to own certain types of guns. He focused on why no one needs an “assault weapon” for “self-protection and recreation.” Of the AR-15 in particular, Biden said: “There are plenty of ways to protect yourself and recreate without an AR-15.” He then mocked gun owners who have said this current gun control push is less about guns and more about control: “They said it isn’t about guns, they’re wrong. It is about guns.” Joe Biden and his audience applauded as he also teased the idea that that Obama administration wants to take guns away from law-abiding citizens.

So the federal government should decide which firearms to allow and which ones not, for the public. Because according to these facts the government has every right to decide the firearms and make gun restrictions, today, not tomorrow, not next year, today!
