• Thank you so much for reading my blog. The part of your comment that stood out to me was when you said that selling their guns is a good way to prevent shootings. A question i have for you is if you have any other solutions that could also help prevent shootings? Look forward to hearing back.

      • Dear Edith, Agree with your post Undocumented People Mark Their spot in The USA because in the quote “sometimes i feel like i can’t set my roots here completely because it could be taken away” This is important because a lot of families that come that are undocumented feel like this because at any moment they could just not be here anymore and tha…[Read more]

        • Dear Jesus,
          I think your post was good and influential in a way because you brought up the fact that somebody traded in their gun because of a shooting. A line that stood out to me was ”I’ve got kids, man,” said Hurtado, who works at Waste Management in Oakland and has children ages 14, 10, 6 and 1. Hurtado was among hundreds of Bay Area residents who dropped off their firearms at buyback locations in Oakland and San Francisco on Saturday, collecting $200 cash for their weapons, no questions asked.”(Berton). This shows that people have empathy and are willing to trade in their guns for money and it’s a helpful way to prevent like shootings. I agree with your point about returning guns because your able to reduce the amount of people that have guns which can make oakland safer. Thanks for writing and keep it up.

            • Hi Jesus,
              I really liked your post because you were able to back up your claims with various types of evidence such as tables, graphs, and statistics. I also like how you offered two solutions instead of just one! I think you would like this article about gun violence solutions https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/7/12/20679091/thomas-abt-bleeding-out-urban-gun-violence-book-review . It reviews a book that offers solutions to gun violence in cities.
