Enforcment of Gun Control

In a country full of rights and opportunity, I beleive some people should not have access to guns due to their state of mentallity.

Dear Future President,

All I have to say is thank you. I am very thankful for having a president like you go out of the way of things to take responsibility for our country. It takes more than responsibility, it takes a lot of care and pride to sustain this country. There are many issues that have been going on nowadays that need to be fixed. One issue that needs to be fixed is the law of guns.

Guns can be sold to mostly anybody and grant access to most people whether it's legal or illegal. I am not saying that guns should not be allowed in the U.S , however they should not be given to people who they don't know and trust. I really want to talk about this issue because many deaths that I know of have been caused by gun shootings.

One of my closest friends has tragically went through a loss of family due to a gun shooting. It was in elementary towards the end of fifth grade when everything was going well until this incident occurred. It all was going well until I heard what had happened that thursday night. Three days before Father's Day and one day right before a school field trip to the Castaic Lake. I remember this horrific day like it was just yesterday and still have that feeling of pain and sadness hidden beneath my face when I start to think about it. My friends dad and brother had been shot that night leading them both to be found dead. They were working in some apartments when they had a problem with the owner and caused him to shoot both of them. This changed everything for my friend and still the next day he showed up to school crying and I remember him being called to go talk to a lady to work things out. The lady at the office told him to bring a couple friends over to come alongside with him and he called me to go with him. To this day we are still very good friends and we share a bond of friendship like no other friends would.

Ever since, guns have been a major problem to me due to what I had experienced. I promised to stay away from guns because guns are meant to shoot and that's why gun store owners should strict the laws for them being purchased. I hope this country can become a better place and safe environment for all the people that live here. Imagine a country full of people living life in peace and the world becoming as one.
