Guns are a big problem in our country. They have made us more violent. Basically, guns have taken control of us.
I believe every state should have some type of gun control.
Guns are dangerous around children, because they believe guns might be fake and use them as toys. We often hear of killings somewhere in our country.
Many states, such as Texas, have laws that allow citizens of the state to carry a gun in public places. That is a scary thought to many of us, because we are afraid of guns and the harm they can cause. According to one report, “there were roughly 16,272 murders ... committed in the U.S. during 2008. Of these, about 10,886, or 67 percent, were committed with a firearm.”
This country would be a lot safer if we could, in some way, get rid of all the guns. One way this could happen is by making the government intervene and take them away from every person. I think that would be the best.
