Be careful when seeking gun control

I do not think people know exactly what they are saying when they demand gun control. Most people, when we think of gun control, believe it is the government seizing all aspects of our right to be able to defend ourselves. We as a people have the right to defend ourselves no matter what. We should not have to be dependent on the government to be there to protect us.

There will always be two sides to every story, two different opinions to which we will always be able to agree or disagree with. You may be for more gun control or you may be against it. Both ways it is your choice to choose and your choice to live with. People see the good effects of this idea but they are not looking at the big picture. The big picture is that the government is slowly taking away our rights as the people, and by doing this, they are causing us to no longer be a free country and more of a controlled country.

Nobody should try to take away our rights as a country; nobody should try to take away our freedom. That is what will happen if we allow them to pass the gun control act, we are giving the government permission to come into our homes and slowly take away our freedom.
