It's Time For a Change, We Need Gun Control, Now!
Since people can acquire guns easily, it has become a problem that they are abusing that power. For many years now, people have done mass shootings. Many people have lost people that they love. This has ranged from kids to adults. Gun control can help minimize these actions and potentially stop them from ever happening again. Sign PetitionSign Petition
I am concerned for my future. Most of these mass shootings have taken place in schools. I am afraid to have a family and send my children to school with the fear and anxiety of knowing that something could happen to them while they are at school. Schools are a place where children should be comfortable and able to learn. Instead, they have to live with the fear that something might happen.
Stricter gun control measures have been proposed as a way to address gun violence by limiting access to firearms. It's believed that implementing background checks, waiting periods, and restrictions on certain types of firearms can help reduce the incidence of gun-related crimes. According to "The Science Is Clear: Gun Control Saves Lives," "Guns kill more children each year than auto accidents. More children die by gunfire in a year than on-duty police officers and active military members". With this petition, I hope to establish comprehensive background checks for all gun purchases. This would help ensure that individuals with a history of violence or mental health issues do not have easy access to firearms. This measure aims to prevent firearms from ending up in the wrong hands and potentially reducing gun violence. Advocating for comprehensive background checks for all gun purchases is a crucial step in strengthening gun control. By ensuring that every potential gun owner undergoes a thorough screening process, we can help prevent firearms from falling into the wrong hands and promote safer communities.
