There are many occasions where Americans have seen how lenient laws affect our everyday lives. 19,392 committed suicide with firearms, 13,000 homicides related to guns occur yearly in the United States, and since 2000, 194 school shooting have happened.

Usually, when I go to a doctor, ninety minutes out of my day is involved between waiting to see the doctor, the actual visit, and follow up.

This data shows that thousands each year are shot in the United States, which includes the deaths of those killed each year. According to the supporters of more age restrictions, the new laws will take some of the guns off the streets and decrease the amount of gun
Legalization of physician-assisted suicide has been in discussion throughout the years in the United States. While many state and federal lawmakers have this up in discussion, the state of Oregon is the only U.S state were physician-assisted suicide is legal. Not only is assisted suicide illegal, the use of euthanasia is also an illegal substance being prescribed to patients. There are four distinguished types of euthanasia, all with different meanings that are mentioned later on in the text. Over the last forty years and counting, Pakes had informed that the views of physician-assisted suicide have been changing, and it is still ongoing today.

Through an analysis of data, on why teens commit suicide, it has been shown that those teens were uneducated on how to cope with their problems and their own self worth in the world. Suicide comes from many factors. It comes from a whirlwind of negative things happening, piling up on oneself, then soon falling over on the person causing them to become emotionally drained down to the core. At this point the only way of responding to end their pain is by committing suicide. Although, there are already so many organizations to help with depressed individuals who have thoughts of themselves committing suicide the congress itself is not doing enough to reduce teen suicide rates. The congress needs to increase the education on suicide awareness

Physician-Assisted Suicide Physician-assisted suicide is when a doctor provides the means and the information necessary for a patient to end his life. A bill legalizing physician-assisted suicide was recently signed into law in California, and four other states have also legalized physician-assisted suicide. While many people may say that physician-assisted suicide should not be legal, the fact of the matter is that assisted suicide is a way to end a terminally ill patient’s suffering, and therefore should be legal. All doctors must abide by a very strict code of medical ethics. One of the biggest arguments against physician-assisted suicide is that it violates the Hippocratic oath, which is a code of medical ethics which all new doctors must swear to.
