    • Hi Owen,
      First of all, I really liked how you pointed out the positive effects of gun ownership and thought on both perspectives of people against gun usage and people who are not. I really appreciated how you discussed about a topic not much tolerated in school and I really want people to be aware about gun ownership. One part I really liked was when you concluded that there is no correct answer to this question. I believe that most people will say that they are against the usage of guns but as you thought about this in both perspectives, your conclusion did make sense to me. Anyways, I really enjoyed your article and I learning much from it.

    • Dear Owen,

      First, I felt really inspired by how you brought up gun ownership, which isn’t a common topic that is discussed in the normal world nor basic education. I especially liked the article because you just didn’t say “oh guns are bad” or whatnot, but you claimed both perspectives of the situation and explained the pros and cons of the problem. It was handy to see the two views about guns together, and you wrote two of them with good detail and explanation. I also very much agree with your conclusion, which you said “there is no real answer to gun control”, which is practically true since the pros and cons both stand in contrast between them. I really liked your article and hope you write more of these.
