Gun Violence in America: A Stance

I am not trying to be funny at all. I am more of a knife person.  Guns can be used to protect, but they also can be used to ensure a kill.

With increased violence from gun shootings around the United States, many people wonder what local authorities and government are doing to solve this growing problem.

President Obama is not known for his whimsical sunny personality in public, but when it comes to guns, specifically gun violence, his emotional side comes to life. In October of 2015 president Obama said with utter frustration and disbelief, “we've become numb to this,” after reports of yet another mass tragedy due to gun violence came to light. That day,...
