28th Amendment: Gun control Introduction:It is necessary to know the importance of gun control because there are too many shootings just because of a terrorist who use guns to threaten civilians. Therefore this amendment will help end all the mass shooting and death cost by guns that we are facing nowadays in America. Why this Amendment is Needed Today: This amendment is needed because there are too much mass shooting and people who are being killed because of guns.

In conclusion, gun control laws would not benefit our country as many would like to believe. They have proven to be ineffective, guns would be taken out of citizens’ hands not criminals’, and they are unconstitutional. Theodore Roosevelt said “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” How far will
America’s mayors have come to a consensus that these weapons of mass destruction are destroying the nation’s communities, cities, and families. Nutter goes on to reveal some surprising information, stating that out of the average 100,000 people that are shot each year, over 30 percent end up dying, while only 10 percent were intentional homicides (Lane 2015). Every year approximately 18,000 children are shot, only further proving the school shooter epidemic our country faces. This sort of violence is nearly exclusive to urban areas, as cities make up 15 percent of the population but account for 39 percent gun related murders and 23 percent total homicides. Nutter is proposing a ban on assault weapons, quite similar to a 1994 ban that decreased total gun murders by 6.7 percent and the types of shootings they were most often used in, specifically ones with multiple victims and police officers as victims.
If they would put all of the families that lost their loved ones because of guns first and come up with this agreement it would reduce so much violence.

Zimmerman ( Kessler) The Stand Your Ground Law is a highly controversial topic.

And incidents like these are hard to forget. 26 people were murdered during their weekly sunday service in a Sutherland Springs church, and 58 people were killed and over 500 were injured during the Las Vegas shooting. According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, which catalogues such incidents, over 520 people were killed this year and 1,870 were injured.

Republicans and Democrats alike are trying to find an effective solution
I took a look at the entire picture and found that it was really for the best to let the law pass. This law is going to help solve the problem of “He shot and killed twenty people because nobody else had a gun to fire back.” This problem is major in the United States America, as multiple shootings have occurred. One of the consequences is that now anyone that has a gun can simply kill another person at the school. The law is very clear that only people with a license can carry a gun. To have a license one must be the age of 21.
They use guns and shoot out of their sense and out of control. There can be a question that can be asked which is, how those sick people are getting the gun and from where they are getting them?

This is the reason, there is still so many people are dying from gun shots. In order to reduce this death 's, first, there should be some changes in the NY Safe Act.
Is Gun control the answer? These type of questions are being asked by lawmakers. Researchers are saying that taking away all guns is not the answer and are looking for other ways to prevent mass shootings.

Morris M. says “The rate for intentional homicide in the UK in 1996—the year of the Dunblane Massacre—was 1.12 per 100,000.

Lapierre implies, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” This may be true, but what if neither party had a gun? I’m not saying that all guns in America should be banned, but instead no more of these assault rifles and firearms should be allowed in the average citizen 's hand. All guns sellers should have to provide a background research, psychological test, and a contract of intent on how the buyer will use the product. With these new selling strategies in place Adam Lanza would not have had the chance to commit this horrendous
Using President Ronald Reagan words, Cruz said his strategy “should be very simple -- to defeat radical Islam – We win, they lose.” He noted that the recent shooting occurred within weeks after the terrorist attacks in Paris. “This horrific murder underscores that we are at a time of war,” Cruz said. “Whether or not President Obama or the current administration is willing to acknowledge it, our enemies are at war with us.” Cruz vowed when elected as President that he will “rip to shreds the catastrophic Iranian nuclear deal.” “The U.S. needs a leader who will say to Iran, either you will stop your nuclear program, or we will stop it for you,” Cruz said. He also pledged to move the American embassy to Jerusalem and cut off federal funding from universities that support boycotting Israeli products. Cruz described how this administration justifies the recent terror attacks describing how Secretary of State John Kerry called the Charlie Hebdo attacks earlier this year as
