  • Hi Audrey I like your points and I agree with the things you are saying but it feels like people who want to have guns or people who want to bands guns are always going to be going on. But I mean it feels like it’s not the gun falt who kills people I think it’s the people who are behind the gun and I think that’s what some people don’t get with guns.

    Should people have guns?

    I mean, for me, I think people should have guns only if they are responsible for it cause it’s not the guns fault that kills people it’s the people whos behind the gun. You make the choice of pulling...

    • Dear Gerardo,
      I like what you wrote about this topic, “Gun Control” because a lot of people will disagree and agree with you about this topic. I agree with you because we should be able to take care of our family when we are in a dangerous situation. I think the Police officers should always have a gun because there job is very dangerous and they never know when someone will have a gun. I agree with you that only responsible people should carry a gun but if they have kids then they should put it in a safe.

    • I agree with being responsible for a handgun, but it’s not a matter of owning one. The age requirement for having a gun in California is 21, yet its purpose should be for self-defense only. Not just because someone wants to show off, nor should they be allowed to pull a trigger for no reason at all. I agree that Police Officers overdue their ¨Gun Control¨ but that doesn’t give a reason for citizens to carry a weapon. Many might get the wrong idea if they were to see someone with a gun; casually walking down the street. Owning a HandGun is a huge responsibility, and to those who own one ¨Props¨ because there are many disagreements regarding this issue.

    • Dear Gerardo, I like what you wrote about this topic because people should know about guns in America. Guns can be used in a good way to protect yourself and others around you. If you have a gun you should be very responsible with it. I agree that we should put more gun control laws as well. Guns in America are a very big thing as we all know of what has been going on in the past years.

    • Hey Geraldo, I agree with your comment to an extent. I do agree that bad people will find ways to produce and obtain guns despite what ever laws are created to prevent them from doing so. But I do think that we need a revision on the process to obtain one legally. There should be more test and evaluations on everything about the one attempting to obtain a gun, especially their mental state. Currently I believe that there is only a background check at the time you purchase the gun that takes about half an hour. I think that there should be a full mental health assessment by a doctor before purchasing a gun and periodically after obtaining said gun.
