Gun Control

Stop gun violence.

Dear Future President,

Iโ€™m writing to address the issue of gun control because gun control in the United States is a large problem as it will take away the 2nd Amendment rights and would also stop the ability of law abiding citizens to protect themselves from criminals who obtain guns illegally. The right to bear arms is promised to citizens of the United States and to put gun control into effect is to take away their Constitutional rights. Crime is very high in cities that have few gun control laws. However, the problem will not be solved by taking guns away from people who are registered and licensed to carry them.

About 20 children and adolescents head to the hospital for gun-related injuries every day, according to a new report from the medical journal Pediatrics. Host Michel Martin speaks with Dr. Robert Sege, one of the study's authors, about the wide effect of gun injuries. Countless children and youth are exposed to gun violence each year at home, at school, in their communities, or through the media.Gun violence can leave lasting emotional scars on these children. The government should have armed guards at the movie theaters,malls,

Churches and etc.

Many countries attempt to stop violence with armed good guys. Countries such as Guatemala,Honduras,El Salvador, Colombia and Venezuela to name a few. They have some of the highest homicide rates in the world.Scientific studies have consistently found that places with more guns have more violent deaths, both homicides and suicides. Women and children are most likely to die if there is a gun in the house.To begin with,having a gun in the house is a risk factor for serious accidental injury and death.As Hemenway points out, death certificate data indicate that 68o Americans were killed accidentally with guns each year between 2003 and 2007.Half those victims were under the age of 25.

The main point of this argument is that criminals do not follow laws and we need to make sure that they follow it because it will lead to homicide, etc

Sincerely,

Troy Pansoy
