I want to find out why so many juveniles have been locked up for gun possession or for committing a crime with a firearm. I want to see what percent of juveniles have access to firearms and why they choose to commit crimes. I am going to study statistics about how many juveniles posess firearms and how many juveniles commit crimes that include a firearm. There are many people who go away for possessing illegal firearms and that commit crimes with a firearm or weapon but what is puzzling me is how or why so many juveniles get acess to firearms and comnit crimes with them.

This deals with the thoughts, intentions and reactions of criminals. This also includes all that partakes in the criminal behaviour. In comparison to anthropological criminology, psychology deals with everything that makes the criminal “tick”, as opposed to the physical evidence. The questions that I formed can easily be related to the article because they are thought-provoking, and they ask about the actual intentions and thought process related to the crime.
