Dear Donald Trump,
Gun violence is something that needs to be addressed because it happens very often in the United States or even the whole world, and people are dying each day because of the safety of guns and what hands the guns are in.
There are many issues revolving around gun control. The second amendment of the U.S Constitution states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” ( ) This means that a good military is necessary to the protection of a free state, the right of people to keep and bear arms, shall not be broken. Guns are being used inappropriately in this world, and it needs to stop because people are shooting innocent people recklessly or without reason and this should stop. Gun violence should stop. People are using guns inappropriately and are validating the second amendment. But guns are a major problem in this world. They are used in killing harmlessly, randomly, and through anger. According to GunViolenceArchive.com, it states, “The total number of incidents in 2016 through guns are 48, 572 people, and the amount of deaths are 12, 534 people.” This proves guns are a major problem, and gun violence needs to stop.
There has been a lot of gun violence, but guns are also needed for self defense weapons, the military, the army, the police department, the FBI, and the government/agency. Therefore, guns are needed to protect this country. So, if these departments don’t have guns, our country wouldn’t be very safe.
Obviously, certain departments or agencies need guns as a self defense or just a regular weapon. But, for people who are not in these departments, for instance, American citizens, they should not carry guns or they should at least have a permit. Guns are very harming things that affect America’s population.
In conclusion, guns may be allowed for safety departments, but American citizens should not carry guns or bear arms due to our safety or America’s safety so our population won’t decrease, but it can increase.
Thank you for spending your time reading this letter.
