  • Dear Roy,
    i found it interesting how you mentioned how america is the highest country with firearms and how most people have a story with guns. I feel like people kill because they lack mental stability and lack knowledge.

      Your post made me think what people can do with guns and the kind of restriction we should be having on them. It also made me think if the laws should be for all states or should have higher restriction for certain classes. Something I wonder is if there’s a way to protect the people more and not the ability of having a weapon.


    • Dear Janet,
      Your post made me think that gun restrictions are not the solution to gun violence. I also made me think that maybe its the way we act around others that cause gun violence. I wonder why people think gun restrictions are the solution to the problem.

      Your post made me think about how everyone might have different perspective of guns. Many people believe that carrying a firearm is bad and cause trouble but many people think its good to carry guns for their safety. Something i wonder is if anyone has done anything to show that guns are either bad or good.

    dear saqua,
    your post made me think of how many people view white cops differently because of the common issue that keeps occurring. Do you think the cop had a liable reason to shoot the young guy just because he moved? Something I wonder is why this keeps occurring.

    • Dear Janet,
      Your post made me think about how gender can be a leading driver of gun violence since the statistics show the opinions. It also made me think about the way people perceive gun violence with “it’s the people”. I wonder what the stats are on real gun violence but with gender.
