5 leadership qualities to have

Some of the most important leadership qualities to have while being president is being able to come up with many opinions, deciding decisions in a timely manner, have productive and high performed teams, resolve conflicts and be clear on what goes on in the government. These qualities are important because our country needs a president that isn't afraid to state their opinion, isn't indecisive, has a strong team, peace maker and be honest on what's going on behind scenes in our government.

What would I fix?

If you had the oppurtuntity to fix something in our country then what would it be? I personally would choose gun control. I personally think that giving people background checks, having higher requirements and increasing our laws on them. If Americans were to give accurate background checks to customers then it may help alot. In 1994 Americans owned more than 194 million guns. I'm sure if their were background checks then so many people wouldn't have one. More than 30,000 people are killed a year by gun violence, that's not including all of the other weapons that could be used for violence in this country. If the government would also make more laws for citizens it could be very effective. When people have to follow laws, it always helps the sitiuations. For example wearing your seat belt and texting and driving. Before those laws were enforced, citizens didn't take them serious and acted carelessly. It would be very important for me to create strong and productive teams so that we could overcome all of the obstacles needed to cure the gun violence problems. If there's a strong team involved then their could be many shared opinions that everyone can discuss and eventually come up with a mutual agreement. I would also have to make sure that my country knows what's going on so that they don't feel like nothing is happening. Overall we need to be more serious about gun laws and violence in the US because it could help our statistics of homicides and suicides in our country drastically.
