考鸭们都知道，2018年的雅思作文真题都来自于历史题库。本文就为大家梳理历年雅思写作真题范文——犯罪类话题：Some people think that if a police force carries a gun, it can lead to higher level of crime in that society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?——2014年6月7日真题范文
Agree or disagree 第11次考到，成为上半年议论文的主流问法(discuss只有2次)。警察配枪问题在3年之后再次考到。而且问法基本一样(20110820旧题 Some people believe that，if a police force carries guns, it would cause a high level of violence. Do you agree or disagree?)
Police carrying guns will not result i a rise of crime and violence. Instead, it is probably the premise of social stability.
Seeing policemen holding guns may make some citizens uneasy and falsely harbor the view that perpetrators are everywhere. This is typical true in those countries suffering from terrorist attacks, where armed forces are deployed in locations like underground railway stations and airports. Nevertheless, violence, I believe, must be combated with an iron fist and gun-carrying in this case is hardly a destabilizing factor.
Firstly, the simple presence of guns, being hold by specially trained police forces, itself is a deterrent to potential violence. In other words, common citizens will think twice before resorting to violence when they are unconsciously aware that violent acts are not allowed and will surely be preserved at any price in severe cases. Latent robbers or murderers, for instance, may be brought to a halt since they are convinced that they can hardly succeed in the face of professionally trained gun-carriers.
Furthermore, policemen carrying guns do not necessarily induce abuse of guns. In some countries like America, the public may complain gun shots every now and then. However, in many countries, individuals have no legal access to such weapons. Whilst police are permitted to own guns, there are also a range of rules regulating the use. Put another way, the guns will be effectively controlled and managed, and once in need, they are in the hands of qualified policemen, few of whom are likely to pose a threat to social stability. In China, for example, Gong An (Chinese name for policemen, literally meaning people in charge of public security) are allowed to carry guns under regulated circumstances, and guns among the common people are strictly controlled. As a result, there are few gun-shot cases in China.
In conclusion, it is necessary for police forces to be equipped with guns to deter criminal acts and ensure social order.
