Example of topic sentence for body
Having more semis can hesitate murders not to attack schools.
Be specific like it states semis instead of guns.
Thesis: Despite the second amendment, America needs to limit the use of guns as in terms of banning high capacity magazines, there are not enough restrictions on semiautomatic weapons, and they encourage high school shootings.
Concession: Although many Americans want more gun control, there are those who argue that banning semis is not possible and that guns stop school shootings. In fact, many people believe that guns decrease high school shootings. Studies show that communities with more guns have less crime; furthermore, if more schools had armed security and teachers, the chances of school shooting would decrease. Dan Newman, gun activist, states, “If we permitted more open carry in schools, criminals would think less about opening fire on innocent people” (61). Many experts are encouraging more training on handling school shooters and advocating more guns in schools to deter violence. Furthermore, banning semiautomatic weapons is not possible as most guns are semis. In essence, it is impossible to strip all of these types of guns away from the American people. “Nearly, 77 percent of all handguns are semiautomatic weapons, which means that most guns in American homes are semis (Brown). The argument goes that we have too many semis in public, and it would be challenging, if not impossible, for the government to take these guns away. While these are plausible arguments, the United States has banned handguns and semiautomatics in the past, and this is something that we need to instill today.
Topic Sentence: The government needs to take stronger measures in stopping the sale of semiautomatic weapons.
