C. Các dạng đề mẫu chủ đề Guns and Weapons
“Individuals should not be allowed to carry guns as it increases the crime and violence in the society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?”
In many countries, laws are quite flexible to let ordinary individuals carry firearms while in many other countries it is quite hard to get a license, even for a notable person, to own a gun. It is often said that when a state or country allows its citizens to carry weapons, the crime and violence rates increase there and I quite agree with this statement.
First, guns are meant to shot someone either to wound or kill him. Thus the very objective of a gun is to kill a person and thus this deathly weapon can only increase the crime and violence in a society. To understand how the mass ownership of guns can increase the violence in a country we can compare a country like the USA, where carrying a gun is allowed, with a country like Japan, where it is restricted. In 2014, when the United States experienced over 18,000 gun-related homicides, Japan had only 14 and this is quite an alarming comparison that reveals how firearms ownership by mass people can increase violence in a country.
Second, research indicates that owning and carrying a gun can psychologically affect our behaviours and thus people often commit crimes only because they have guns with them. Thus letting people carry guns puts others life in risk rather than ensuring safety. Accidental, psychological, and family violence gunshot wounds and death are quite high in many countries, especially where people can carry guns with them, and the only way to reduce such crime rate is to restrict the ownership of guns.
In conclusion, the only reason the authority would permit someone to carry a gun is to ensure the safety of this person. However, the reality is quite contrary and allowing people to carry guns is actually letting criminals also won it. Thus there is no doubt that people in a country should not be allowed to carry firearms and restricting it would significantly decrease the crime and violence.
”Some people say that gun weapon must be legal for protecting themselves whereas other people reject it. Which one you agree or disagree and give the reasons.“
Gun weapon seem like side coins that bring negative or positive effect. Some people prefer bring their own firearms for safety. Although, others are tightened by people who bring gun weapon. I personally believe that both have some reasons. Whereas, some people reject this regulation because they think that only police who have regulation to use weapon. I am personally convinced that both of them have some reasons.
To begin with, people are allowed to own firearm such as in America and Australia. Moreover, having weapons mean that people having the right to protect themselves. Thus, by having weapon, people can use it in self defenses. As we remembered, we shock with a headline new when the guy who shooted in cinema after he suicide, this condition triggered some people to have their own weapon and protect their selves. Certainly, this defers criminals because all criminal will think twice before doing bad things while see other citizen bring weapon.
Nevertheless, some people ask government to make regulation that weapon in illegal. Furthermore the number of violent crimes increases when weapons are available. Besides, there is a risk of accidents with guns that triggered criminals. More is over, only police who allow using weapons related their job and responsibility. Perhaps, having gun will create violent societies with big murder rates. In other words, suicide rates have been shown to rise when guns are available.
From my point of views, I firmly believe that legal weapon may influence more negative effect even bring self defense. In my opinion, according to Harvard Medical Research, number of suicide has been increased three times in people who have their own weapons. Others, the percentage of crimes increase to the higher number because of the weapon’s own ship. The government must have straight regulation of weapons to their citizen.
To sum up, I do agree if citizen should not have their own weapons, whatever the reasons. After all, the government decides important rules to their citizen safety.
