Gun Laws

The next president needs to pass stricter gun laws to protect American citizens.

Dear Next President:

Tucson, Az January 11, 2011. That was the day Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot. Have you ever wondered if that event and many others could have been prevented? If stricter gun laws were enforced, guns would stay out of the hands of the wrong people and the number of mass shootings would go down increasingly. The next president of the United States of America needs to work to enforce stricter gun laws.

Background checks need to be forced to buy a gun. People from other countries are coming to the US, buying guns, and then hurting our people. This needs to stop. No one in our country should be able to buy automatic guns. They are ending up on our streets and people are getting hurt. According to there were 464,033 deaths involving guns between the years 1999 and 2013. If stricter gun laws were enforced the number of deaths involving guns would go down at an increasing rate.

If gun laws continue to be overlooked more and more American people will get hurt or die. The next president needs to take action to enforce stricter gun laws or else American blood will continue to be spilled on our own soil. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my letter! I hope you will work to make America a safer place.
