PROPOSITION G I strongly disagree with Proposition G. I believe that there are to many people with guns as it is. Putting more guns on the streets will only make the death toll in cities and the entire world in that matter higher and higher. Proposition G says that anyone over the age of 18 that has no criminal record and/or no mental history may legally carry a gun and make it known to people that they are caring a gun by wearing the gun in a holster that is outside the clothes instead of under clothes where it is not noticable. Just because a person does not have record of any past problems dealing with the authorities and has no past known mental history it does not mean it is not there. It also does bot mean the person is responsible enough to carry a gun.
Some of the worlds most notorious murders, rapists, and terrorists showed no sign of having anything wrong with them and have no previous cirminal record of any kind. If we told people like this it is alright to carry a gun they may end up with more victims. Another reason I disagree with Proposition G is that people may handling problems the wrong way. Instead of a person defending themselves with word, they could end up handling a problem with guns. For example, if a person made a comment about another person behind their back and it got bacl to the person who was being talked about taking the person who made the comment off to the side and discussing the problem they may pull a gun on the person.
If this happens both parties in the situation may end up dead because a small simple problem that could easily have been solved if the people in the situation acted mature ended up as a gun fight between the people. If this is response that comes out of a pretty little situation that could have easily been solved just think about what could happen if the situation was a serious one. A war between families and communities could break out because of the fact that most of the people will have a gun to protect themselves and they feel it is right to use it in more situations than they should. In the long run a lot of people could end up dead because guns were to actively involved with the solving of problems. One of the last reasons I strongly disagree with Proposition G is that people may try to become heros in hold-ups and robberies.
For example, if a store, bank, or some other consumer area is held up at gun point the consumers in the place may have a reaction of pulling their own gun on the person robbing the place. If everyone in there pulls out their guns a lot people may end up being killed that did not have to be if they would have just listened to the commands of the gunman and let the police do their job instead of doing it for them. If the gunman ends up being killed by one of the consumers the townspeople may brand him/her a hero. In reality the towns hero is just as wrong as the person who was robbing the store in the first place. It is just another person adding to the hate in this world.
In conclusion, I strongly disagree with Proposition G. I believe that in the long run it will only make cities and the worlds death toll higher and that the only people that should be carrying a gun are the police.
