A stronger focus on gun control in the United States involving restriction or even an outright ban of guns could serve to help the problem greatly. In 2015, 13,286 people were killed by firearms in the United States, with 26,819 suffering from non-lethal injuries (qtd. in “Guns in the US”). Taking away guns, the means that many urban criminals have to commit their crimes, would be very beneficial to cities. Recent studies found that the most effective way of reducing gun crime is to lower the amount of guns available in circulation.
Gun Control Gun control is the set of laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians. Gun control has been a very big, conflicting topic for a very long time. There are so many different views on gun control and who knows when this conflict will be resolved and when these school shootings will come to an end. Along with all the suicides that are happening involving guns, it needs to end. This issue seems to be getting worse, and the policies they have now are not working like they should be.
I think that having gun restrictions can reduced the amount of crimes in any city and make the crime rate in America decrease. With the limits of guns we would have less people feeling like their safety is at risk and would see less mass shooting. I believes checking people to see if they are allowed to have the gun back on qualification can help also. With illegal possession of having a gun makes things easier to happen. I hope that other states will consider to have gun restriction to in sure safety for each American.
The documentary 30 Days: Gun Nation places a gun control activist from Massachusetts in Leesburg, Ohio to live with a gun enthusiast and his son. The gun control activist, Pia, came in with stereotypical preconceptions about the two. The primary focus of the documentary was Pia’s transition in feelings toward firearms. At times, this transition felt drastic to the point it seemed scripted. During her time, in Leesburg she was exposed to guns on a daily basis, took gun safety classes, and worked in a sporting goods store selling firearms.

The First Amendment is the freedom of religion, speech, and the press. I feel like this amendment is most obvious one that we can’t change. We live in America where we are free to believe and say anything, so this one will never go away, I almost guarantee it. In this essay I will tell reasons why I think it is a great amendment. (Pros) Let’s start with the holocaust.
The mass shooting tragedies in Florida schools created a ripple about the popular and controversial debate about gun control. America should have more gun control laws, as they can help save dozens, hundreds, maybe even thousands of victims. Advantages of these gun restrictions are the decrease of gun-related murders, more thorough background checks to prevent giving guns to criminals or people with mental illnesses and the prohibition of high-capacity magazines. Nonetheless, the other side of the coin is education about guns should have a higher priority rather than actual gun control, as they do not prevent illegal possession of guns or one 's lower feeling of security. There should be additional gun control in America.
