In some countries, the number of shootings increase because many people have guns at home. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Across the globe, in these days many individuals own
guns
for self-defence and recreational purposes.
Gun
-related mortalities in households –
in particular
– throw the ethics of
such
forms of private
gun
ownership into sharp relief. In
this
essay, I shall appeal to crime statistics to argue that a person is at a far greater risk being shot if there is a
gun
in a
household
.
Firstly
, it is intuitively obvious that having a
gun
in a
household
endangers children and teenagers.
However
, it is because minors do not have the requisite knowledge or maturity to handle
guns
safely.
For instance
, the US Department of Justice recently revealed statistics showing that 150 American children and teenagers die each year because of accidents relating to
household
guns
.
Therefore
it is incontrovertible that
household
guns
lead to additional shootings.
Secondly
,
household
guns
became especially dangerous when spouses have violent arguments.
Additionally
, it is because male sexual rage often results in deadly aggression.
For example
, The International Crime Bureau recently produced statistical evidence that – if there is a
household
gun
– a man is twice as likely (if he discovers his wife having an affair) to kill her in a fit of jealous rage.
Nonetheless
, once again,
household
guns
correlate positively with additional shootings. In conclusion, there is undeniable evidence that having a
gun
in a house leads to
further
shootings. Given the strength of the aforementioned evidence, in the future, more legislature needs to be put in place to limit private
gun
ownership.
