Persuasive Essay Over Gun Control-34
Several years ago near my then-home airport, the Montgomery County Airpark in Gaithersburg, Maryland, a private jet crashed, in bad weather, into a nearby house and killed a mother and two children who were inside.(In addition to killing the pilot and two others aboard the plane.) It was so horrific an incident, and so universally understood as a grotesquely “unfair” extension of damage to people who had not knowingly accepted the risk, that the entire flying community recognized it might change the future of the airport and flying practices there.

Again, I’m sure you don’t see it this way because you see no use to AR rifles.

But I see no use to private planes; I think there is no reason for people who are not commercial aircraft carriers to fly, not to mention the vast and ridiculous subsidies private planes receive.

***I appreciate the reader laying it out in this detail.

Here are two obvious differences in the plane-versus-AR-15 comparison, from my (no doubt biased) point of view: Number 1: small airplanes kill a lot of people, but .

You would probably say that all may be true, but is not worth the deaths.

The pro-gun response is that the deaths from AR’s are a small, small proportion of overall gun homicides, despite the high profile cases.One of the great things about America is you can do things other people don’t approve of; that you can do things like shooting guns or flying just because you enjoy it.I realize planes are heavily regulated, I guess my point is that despite the heavy regulation there are still deaths and despite the low regulation of AR’s there are relatively few deaths compared to other weapons.under 5%; accidental death are almost exclusively handguns).To put this in context, there are somewhere around 5,000,000 AR style rifles in circulation, meaning in any given year, there is (at most) about 1 murder per 20,161 AR rifles in 2014.The media has been complicit in this by promoting "headline" horror stories to increase market share or to scoop others.The latest shooting has just as much or more to do with the mental health crisis in this country than guns, but let's blame an inanimate item and not the user.If you are not promoting a broad fix to a social problem then you are promoting a narrow "headline" grabbing stance, then on to the next"headline". The reader says: In response to your notes on the AR-15’s I think the pro-AR or at least neutral AR position comes down to that despite the high profile shooting, the actual deaths from AR’s are a small portion of total deaths and the lawful owners of AR’s don’t see why they should be deprived of their rights due to the illegal actions of others.You, who do not shoot AR’s (or at all as far as I know) do not see these rights as important, and therefore see it as no big deal to take them away, regardless if it infringes on any rights, which you reject anyway.For rifles total, not AR rifles alone, but total rifles, the latest year (2014) had 248 people murdered.(suicides are unknown, I’d suspect they are a similar percentage with homicides, i.e.
