Compare&Contrast Gore & Bush Essay

876 words - 4 pages

The United States is in a very unusual situation right now as most people know. We still haven't come up with a president. The effects of the candidate we elect for our next president may change my life and may not. If Bush is elected, everything I believe and stand up for will stay the same. I really hope he will become the next president because he will ensure the protection of my rights. If Gore were elected as our next president, my life could seriously be effected. There are several issues that Gore supports that I am very much against. His beliefs on abortion and agriculture are a couple of issues I strongly disagree with, but the main one that I want to address in this essay is the topic of gun control. First of all, I would like to state a few things about myself and my background. I was raised on a farm and lived there my whole life. Both of my parents and there families have always liked to hunt. I started hunting when I was about 12 years old. My dad owns close to twenty guns. My grandpa owns about thirty guns and I have an uncle who owns around twenty guns also. I myself own three guns and both of my brothers own three guns. There aren't many things my family and I would rather do than go out hunting. We wouldn't be able to do this without guns. If Gore were elected to be our president there would be a big chance that we would all lose our guns. He wants to put so many restrictions on buying and selling guns that it would be virtually impossible to get one. Now he may or may not be able to accomplish that, but he will surely push the issues during his whole presidency until he gets his way. Even with a Republican legislature, it can happen. Clinton succeeded in pushing a couple laws through Congress dealing with gun control. They might not have been all that big of a deal to us, but it is a start for the Democrats. If Clinton could do it, who's to say Gore can't do the same. Gore thinks that guns are the cause of all crimes which is not true. No gun is the reason someone dies. It is the person using the gun who kills people. No one can blame guns or the people who make them for what they are used for. I agree that they need to be kept out of the hands of people who have misused them before, not out of the hands of...
