Name Professor’s name Course Date Views about gun control in America from the four sociological theories The discussion is based on an article about guns and guns control in America retrieved from: www.nytimes.com The main sociological perspective to be used in analyzing what someone would say about the article are functionalist conflict theorist feminist and interactionist theories. Functionalist perspective This perspective stresses on the structure of the society which leads to stability. It emphasizes that society is made up of various parts that should be structured together for unity and harmony within the society. Thompson Joseph and Mica (n.p.) notes that Talcott Parsons as a proponent of functionalist theory argues that society has different parts that serve basic functions to bring order within the society. Therefore one would say that the use of guns should be legalized as it is dependent on the security of the of something that makes one use it when needed. Consequently children owning guns will know that use of them only leads to negative effects like bloodshed and murder hence they can limit their use as written in paragraph two. Otherwise kids will be eager to see a gun and experiment on how it functions and in the process they can end up killing. Works cited Alexander Jeffrey C.
