Opener and Closer

Opener and Closer, Vic.


Opener

Gun; a weapon consisting of a metal tube, with mechanical attachments, from which projectiles are shot by the force of an explosive; a piece of ordnance. Guns show no bias, so why should our society show one? We as people have made guns in to what they are now, we are to blame, not the gun. We as people use guns, whether it be good or bad, we are to blame, not the gun. Guns do not kill people, people kill people. The problem is very clear, guns do not relate to crime, but crime can relate to guns. Crime is caused by criminals, not by civilians. Gun crimes are caused by criminals, not by civilians.

Legitimacy; the state or quality of being legitimate. This definition holds the key in locking the doors shut from the criminal world. It has also proven throughout history that criminals have successfully found other means of getting what they search for. Supply and Demand, if someone wants it, then someone has it for sale. By banning guns you are removing a law abiding citizen's right to defend themselves with arguably one of the most successful means. You want to remove guns from our homes, so criminals are the only ones who have them. You want us not to use our guns in an act of self-defense, so criminals get the first draw.You justify a ban on guns by saying they are dangerous weapons, well with that said you would have to ban swords, knives, bats, rocks, whips, sling shots, Mike Tyson's teeth, and Jackie Chan's hands. A gun is only dangerous if the person handling said gun is looking to inflict harm on others. No criminal, no crime.


 

Closer

 

Will cut and chop tonight for the closer, after I read the body of the entire essay. That way I can get a feel of the entire thing and flow with a closer.
