The 2012 Gun Vote: This Year’s Election is More Than Just About Electing a President

With the recent movie theater massacre in Colorado, Gun Control is on a lot of people’s minds, including the President of the United States. Is stricter gun control necessary for protecting citizens’ lives? Or does allowing more people to carry guns offer more protection. The 2012 Presidential election is more than just about electing a President for another 4 years, it could very well determine what will happen to citizen’s rights to carry guns.

Last Week, President Barack Obama took an interesting strong stance in favor of gun control, which opened a national gun debate, with the Colorado movie theater massacre on everyone’s mind. In a speech to the National Urban League in New Orleans, President Obama claimed that there hadn’t been enough to lower gun violence and tighten gun control while he has been President. The President pledged to support "common sense" restrictions, which would included a new ban on assault weapons, but didn’t offer any other new policy proposals. Here is a quote from his speech:

"I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals — that they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities. I believe the majority of gun owners would agree that we should do everything possible to prevent criminals and fugitives from purchasing weapons; that we should check someone’s criminal record before they can check out a gun seller; that a mentally unbalanced individual should not be able to get his hands on a gun so easily. These steps shouldn’t be controversial. They should be common sense."

Is this solution? Many people believe that if a mass murdered is planning on an attack, that they will find a gun regardless of gun laws. Therefore, gun laws only restrict innocent civilians wanting to own firearms. In the Colorado movie theater massacre, had any other citizens been carrying a weapon, there may have been a chance to end the massacre before additional civilians were hurt and killed some people may think. Once stronger gun laws are passed, will more strict laws be passed preventing citizens from purchasing gun accessories like tactical lights and laser sights as well?

Obama's opponent Mitt Romney defended having stricter gun control by stating that even though he had actually passed an assault weapons ban as the Governor of Massachusetts, he oppeses of federal ban. During the debate, Romeny state, "I don't happen to believe that America needs new gun laws. A lot of what this young man did was clearly against the law. But the fact that it was against the law did not prevent it from happening. And so we can sometimes hope that just changing the law will make all bad things go away. It won't. Changing the heart of the American people may well be what's essential, to improve the lots of the American people."

So from the mouths of two Presidents which probably have a more diverse set of values and ideas than in any other Presidential election, there is certainly a contrast in their ideas on gun control. This year at the ballet, rather than just electing a President, elect a man that supports what you believe, not just regarding gun laws, but on other values and issues as well.
