Gun Control Safety

The future Ms/Mr president should worry about gun control

Dear Future President,

As you begin a president, you will think about big problems in the U.S such as Gun Control. People live nearby violence, or gangs where they need guns to protect themselves and others. Roughly 14,249 murders were committed in the U.S during 2014.

The issue is that they need to stop making new laws because there's emergencies that could happen. For example, there could be a robbery at a store the cashiers will need them in case the intruder tries to steal the money. There could be another robbery like in a house robbers would steal anything.

A 1993 nationwide survey of 4,977 households found that over the previous five years, at least 0.5% of households had members who had used a gun for defense during a situation in which they thought someone “almost certainly would have been killed” if they “had not used a gun for protection.” This amounted to 162,000 such incidents per year. This excludes all “military service, police work, or work as a security guard.”

The conclusion of this is that the next Ms/Mr president knows that they need to stop making laws because guns could save people's lives. People said that without guns in their homes 162,000 people would of died per year.
