The Issue on Guns: One student's Perspective

Uploaded by GreenGloryBlink1 on Oct 15, 2002

Guns are a major part of America’s history, as they are to this very day. The dependency people feel towards guns are blinding them to their true nature. Their nature of being lethal instruments that are the cause of many of our everyday problems. Guns should be banned. It needs to be done. The logical circumstances for that kind of radical change is because it’s the only thing that can be done.

What is being done to stop these kind of people from getting guns? And the answer to that is that there is no answer. It is impossible to keep these guns from reaching all of the hands of people who are not fit to use one. This further supports my opinion that guns are only a weakness, and not a necessity....
