Social Issue: Mass School Shootings

This article talks about a school shooting that happened in Scotland. It happened during March 1996. After this happened the British government changed their gun laws to where people are banned from privately owning guns. This article relates to our social issue because gun laws need to change. There has been no progress on stopping mass school shootings and it has become way too common of an occurrence in the United States.

Social Issue: Mass School Shootings

I choose this article, because it stresses the importance of gun laws. California a state that already has laws revolving gun laws; passed more laws to make gun laws even more strict. Which it revolves around the issue of school shootings. It was in a direct response to the school shooting in Florida with Adam Lanza. It turned the age from buying a shotgun from 18 to 21. There’s a bunch of other laws regarding gun laws and gun control to crack down on the mass shootings that have occurred. So this article helps encapsulates the issue of school shootings and how the response should be in accordance to the issue of school shootings.

CNN. (2018). California already had the strictest gun control laws in the nation. They just passed a bunch more. CNN Wire, p. CNN Wire, Oct 1, 2018.
