Gun control is a huge issue for us right now, because there are mass shootings that is occurring too often, mainly at schools of young kids to young adults. Without a background check, there is a higher chance of random shootings. It is also seen that 2.9% of persons with serious mental issues alone committed violent acts in a year, compared to 0.8% of people with no mental disorders or substance abuse. I personally believe that enough is enough, the government need to make the gun laws more strict. The Second Amendment to the Constitution states that, “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,”. The definition of gun control is; government regulation of possession and use of firearms by private citizens. These laws do nothing to stop criminals from buying illegal guns, who are unlikely to obey the law and register their guns. The questionnaire will include questions about the persons past, for example, if they have a criminal record or a record of any mental illness. If there is a criminal record in that person’s history, he/she will not be able to make the purchase.Tags: #ayannajohnson#carmanainsworthhighschool#fightforrights#GunViolence#NeverAgain#standup
