People suggest various solutions to violence, ranging from providing guns to everyone to banning them, which is why it is essential to establish whether prohibiting the existence of guns will stop violence (Nuwer, 2018). Significantly, it has been found that gun homicide rates are higher in the United States, where citizens are free to possess and purchase different types of guns. (Swanson, as cited in Nuwer, 2018). However, the death rate is lower in states with restrictive gun laws.
The following reason for the high mortality rate in the population is suicide. It is appropriate to mention the successful legislative regulation of obtaining guns in Australia, which has reduced not only the rate of deaths from armed failure but also because of suicide. There is no evidence that individuals who intended to murder themselves with a disruption did it in other manners (Alpers, as cited in Nuwer, 2018). The disappearance of guns also has a social factor; society is terrified of mass shootings and would live more peacefully if it did not risk participating in such an assault.
From another perspective, there are negative outcomes associated with the prohibition of guns. For example, to preserve ecosystems or reduce the suffering of dying animals on farms or self-defense (Nuwer, 2018). The elimination of guns would adversely impact the U.S. economy and produce significant damage, but not critical compared to human life. Therefore, hunters can use bows and arrows to hunt animals as an alternative, and knives can be applied for self-defense.
