Slide 1: Introduction: say name, etc
Introduce the topic: Advocacy for Gun Ownership. You want to define the topic. What does it mean?
Slide 2: Highlight key points and arguments as well as your premise
- Gun ownership is the idea of possessing guns for personal use which might include defense, fun, or for other uses.
- Advocates for gun ownership premise on the second amendment of the United States that states that grants the people the right to own guns for self defense
- My argument is that Gun ownership control is necessary to regulate gun violence in the United States. Instead of a liberal gun market, gun owners must go through rigorous checks to qualify.
Slide 3 Throw in some facts about gun control that might give the audience a general ideas or scope of the problem.
- Research conducted by Hemenway, Solnick & Deborah (1995) Americans would feel less safe if members of the community increasingly acquire guns. Most women would feel less safe if they have a history of violence, particularly if a gun was used.
- 40 percent of guns are sold without background checks
- Even though minorities are most affected by gun violence, they support gun regulations in a ration of 3 to 1. Compare this to whites who have a closer attachment to gun ownership
Slide 4 Arguments against gun ownership
- Advocates of gun control make the argument that unregulated buying and selling of guns increase gun crimes. The anti- gun group offer scathing attacks to the National Rifle Association use loopholes found in the United States law to allow gun lovers to purchase guns at will.
- Most of the gun control activities evoke the rampant shootings that have occurred in the United States particularly the Colorado shootings, the Arizona shootings and others.
- Extremism in party politics has become an outlet for the people to express their anger. Gun control legislations have not escaped the same path.
- The anti gun advocates reason that forty-percent of all gun sales occur at gun shows, internet or through informal sales. Under such circumstances, gun buyers are not subjected to stringent background checks
Slide 5: Arguments for Gun ownership
Fact: Latino and Black youths consider the gun control as important for own security.
- . The constitution grants gun ownership in the second amendment.
- It necessary for self-defense
- Gun’s don’t shoot, people do
- Its romantic and nostalgic to get rid of family guns
It’s a sport, employment etc
Slide 6: Ask the audience the question: Do guns kill or people kill?
People kill, guns don’t. Problem is the people not the gun.
Slide 7: Policy standpoint
- Instead of the single mindset approach, practitioners would be better off if they embraced the multidisciplinary paradigm has taken.
- Advocate for gun control so that less people can die.
Slide 8: It is not correct to argue that the president want to take out gun rights, he is for gun control.
Just use the slide to talk about the conclusion and the summary:
Gun ownership is a right of Americans, gun use is datable. Should we control gun ownership or gun use? This is not uncle sam’s call, this is the American people’s call
