The topic of gun control is very controversial.

The way we should go about gun control is to have better background checks and greater consequences. Many people can walk into a gun store and leave 30 minutes later with a gun. This shows the simplicity of buying a gun.

I have a personal experience of purchasing a firearm for my 18th birthday. I walked into Academy Sports with my mother and found the gun I was looking for and within an hour I walked out with the weapon of mass destruction.

I feel that gun violence is an issue that can be fixed if schools provided information about guns and safety courses so kids don’t accidentally discharge a weapon and cause harm to themselves. This will decrease the number of accidental deaths.
