One problem I seen through my classmates list was gun rights and who can legally own a gun. I think this issue is one of the major issues in the USA next to racial injustice and animal rights. Gun rights is a major issue right now because many people who shouldn’t own guns own one because their state allows it and has different laws than others. Gun laws is a major issue because many things can happen when the wrong person owns a gun which could be shooting someone to death/ in general or even a school shooting happening which is a major issue because of gun laws. Another small issue is when people walk around with guns to their side which causes others to feel unsafe but can’t do anything because they are allowed to carry.

My questions are:

How can we stop this?

What new laws can be put into effect?

Is this mentally right carrying and allowing these laws?

Do you know some of the major events that were caused by gun laws?
