in the news: gun control

Lately there has been a lot of issues in the news on whether the second constitution, which states that people have the right to bear arms, should be removed or not. There have been a lot of cases of school shootings and many people feel that guns are a danger to people. Contrary to what a lot of people believe, I think that people should still be allowed the rights to own guns. People should be aware of the dangers of guns and they should train kids to know how to act if there ever is a school shooting but they should ban guns they should just make people more aware of them. Guns can be a good thing too. They can be used for protecting ourselves, and just for entertainment. I go out shooting all the time and I enjoy it but just because I shoot guns that doesn’t mean I’m a bad person or will ever shoot a human. It is the person that does the killing not the gun. I think that we as Americans should stick with the constitution and still be allowed the right to bear arms.
