More Guns Sales Means More Deaths

As show in the top graph, guns sales has been increasing more and more but since that crime has increase. School shooting is the topic everyone talks when it comes to guns because its sad and cruel to see shooting in educational places and to see or hear about kids and teens that have been killed for something unreasonable.
There are so many school shootings but two really famous ones are Sandy Hook and Columbine High School. In Columbine there was 13 people killed by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris who used a Hi-Point 995 9mm carbine with (13) 10-round magazines, a sawed-off Savage 67H 12-gauge pump shotgun, and a sawed-off Stevens 311D double-barreled shotgun (History.com)

Sandy Hook was a terrible and really sad shooting because it was in a Elementary School. Twenty children and six adults were killed at the school by 20 years old Adam Lanza, who had earlier killed his mother Nancy Lanza, in their home. Weapons found at the scene were legally purchased by Nancy Lanza which is the worst part because she didn't hide them or put it somewhere secured (CNN)

There should more guns controlled

Mental health treatment ensure a more secure sell of weapons. Reduce children's exposure to violence and address your child that any weapons (if you have any at home) shouldn't be taken or a better and more secure way is to hidden them in a Safe-deposit box. Ban high capacity magazines, expand the 24 hour gun background check to make it universal, and reinstitute the assault ban immediately and have a more secure check at schools when goin to school like metals detectors or any other check.
