What are your opinions on gun control in America? The United States continues to struggle with mass shootings and gun violence. One of this years most deadly attacks has been the Fort Myers Orlando shooting. Today, there is still a debate about gun control law, which determines how guns are sold, used, and who should be allowed to legal use to carry them. This election year, our candidates have opposite opinions and views on how gun control should work in this country.
Donald Trump’s stance on gun control after the Orlando shooting he is quoted as saying, “It’s too bad that some of the young people that were killed over the weekend didn’t have guns attach to their hips frankly, where bullets could have flown in the opposite direction.” He’s obviously does not see the need from more gun control. “If you had more guns, you’d have more protection because the right people would have the guns,” said trump to NBC reporter. Could having more Americans armed prevent gun violence?
His opposition, Hillary Clinton, wrote about the need more for more gun control stating, “I’ll take on the gun lobby and fight for Commonsense reforms to keep guns away from terrorist domestic abusers, and other violent criminals.” Do you think it will help? What is common sense reform? Will this prevent the “lone gunman” from causing damage to and unsuspecting and unarmed civilians? And what qualifies a group of terrorist organization when long standing home grown American hate groups continue to thrive?
Trump or Clinton? Check out these facts. More than 33,000 Americans are killed by guns each year.
