We Need Gun Control
Gun control decreases crime. If gun control is regulated, then we will have less crime. Accessing any type of firearms makes killing easy, efficient, and impersonal which will increase crime.
I haven't gone through any firearm violence, I wouldn't want anyone to go through this. In the future, I wouldn’t want my kids to go through metal detectors to get into school every day.
Furthermore, Sarah Mervosh from The New York Times stated, “Gun violence in America kills more than 30,000 and injures almost 70,000 each year. The United States has the highest gun violence than other worldwide countries.” Americans die each year because the government doesn’t want to have any gun laws. In addition, Christian Britschgi from the Reason said, "It's not a leap to say that no 16-year-old should have ready access to a firearm outside the immediate supervision of an adult." Many parents have firearms in their house on plain sit and don’t have them in a good place lock.
Young people get hurt and traumatized after any type of shooting. Every day kids are scared to go to school. Parents and teachers are terrified to go to stores, schools or anywhere, nowhere is safe anymore. Dylan Kraemer was in classroom 1214 in the Parkland shooting. Dylan's last words knowing he might not see his mom never again said, “Mom, I love you there is a shooting at my school if anything happens I love you so much.” Lives are on the line every day.
Many people say the opposite. They say mass killers often find ways to kill even without firearms. Having gun control isn’t going to make any difference, they will find a way to get a firearm, mass shooting isn’t going to stop. They think by taking their guns is taking away their second amendment
Citizens have the right to want to feel safe. Having gun control keeps guns out of the hands of dangerous people. We as citizens should start taking control of what’s right for us, like by voting for a president that cares about what goes on in the world and doesn’t care just about himself. Let’s start to make a difference for the future of the kids and they don’t have to go through this or go through metal dictators to get into school because we couldn’t do anything about it.
