Gun Control

There should be stricter laws on gun control in the United States

Dear Future President,

I want there to be stricter laws on gun control so they don’t fall into the wrong hands. Many people own guns in the U.S. That’s not to be. The army, police, and Olympic shooters should be the only ones to have guns. Our country has 8.8 guns per 100 people. According to a research, gun control laws are just as old or older, than the second amendment. In recent years, there have been a tremendous rise in violent shootings. Some shooters don't have the authority to buy guns. For example, the shooters of the 1999 Columbine school shooting didn’t have the authority to buy guns. I’ve heard that some people can walk into a  gun store and purchase a gun without a background check. That is a bad thing. If the person running the store gives some random person a gun, what good will come of that?

I believe that no person should have a gun. There are many dangerous outcomes to a person owing a firearm. Guns have one purpose: to kill. That’s not good. I believe some of the solutions to this problem are that no civilians should own guns. Civilians don’t really have a use for a firearm and can rely on the emergency system and the professionals who protect communities. There should also be more intervention with young people who might want to hurt someone when using a gun. Schools should help by providing programs to support young adults who might want to harm someone else violently with a gun.

Killing someone isn't part of God’s ten commandments and it isn’t right to end an innocent life with guns. The people that the Lord created are not bad, but are amazing and killing people makes a more hurtful world.
