Dear Future President,
First off congratulations on winning the presidential campaign. There are many issues regarding the nation from immigration to abortion so I know you have a lot on your plate. But personally a topic I think you should be concerned with is gun control in our country. Personally I am not against the second amendment, I do believe everyone should have the right to own a gun but that’s not the issue concerning gun control. The issue is people not in the right state of mind can buy and handle a gun and multiple guns are making their ways into children's hands and many of these kids are killing other kids or they are killing themselves which is not right. I don’t know a gun ending solution because I don’t think there should be because people do need protection. But in the end we need a way to lock these guns in a way to not allow them to go off and to provide a standard background check to make sure they are going to the right people.
Regarding children shooting themselves or others in a paper written just last year there were around 265 people accidentally shot by kids in that year. That is about five accidental firearms going off in about a week. Many unintentional firearm shooters are mainly toddlers around the age from three and four. Taking these numbers into account we should have a better locking system for the gun and to keep the guns out of childrens hands. If we put more rules on a guns that can keep less people from accidentally killing each other and it can allow the people in the right mind own the guns. Just a thought to put more regulations on guns to save many more lives.
