GUN CONTROL

United Nations passed a Small Arms Programme of Action to restrict the use the ammunition
feeding diseases and the assault weapons, but we need to recall does gun control constitute
crime control? And can the nation rates of homicide, robbery, and assault be reduced by striker
restriction over the use of weapons? Before the start of the main debate we also have to
discuss the historical background of these reforms and acts related to the topic. In 2009, 151
UN member states voted to begin negotiations towards legally binding arms Trade Treaty (ATT)
allowing the import and export of conventional arms. The constitutions of the countries like
Cuba (chapter 1, article 3), Mexico (article 10), United States of America (2nd amendment),
United Kingdom (bill right of 1689), Switzerland (article 3 weapon act) etc allow citizens to have
access over arms but the state not completely provide them the rights of weapons. States
(mainly Third World Countries) who provide the complete access of weapons to its citizens
respectively have poor department of justice and police force because the people of the state
itself is involved the killing and violence. According to a report more than 100 million people in
the world only have the legalized and registered weapons and others contain the unregistered
weapons which includes in a crime. We can consider it the main reason why the crime rate in
every country is increasing at large scale especially the third world countries. To ensure the
decrease in the crime it’s important to put restrictions on the use of weapons. Promotions of
the Acts like handgun restriction laws, federal firearm laws etc are important. Furthermore
states should also put some enforcement measures such as raising public awareness, enforcing
arms embargoes, implementation of disarmament, starting demobilization programme, stop
the illegal manufacturing, possession, stockpiling and trade of small arms and eradicating the
access of automatics guns to citizens. Before issuing the weapons a state should have
surveillance over the person just to ensure that the weapon may not go in wrong hands.
Moreover small tracking chips must be installed in the arms so the owner of the weapon can be
track down. A method of clarifying crime record must also be launched in which the owner of
the weapon must have a clear crime record. In these ways the crime rate and violence can be
reduced at a large scale
