    One of the many issues plaguing our country is gun control. Or in some peoples point of view, "fun" control. There is plenty of controversy on the limitations that should be in place on gun ownership or whether or not people should have guns. One answer is clear: Americans won't tolerate no guns at all. But if I were President, I would place stricter mental health and past violent outbursts and black market enforcing on gun ownership.



      Statistics on Gun Ownership
    • 40% of all US homes have guns
    • 81% of Americans say that gun control will be an important issue in determining which Congressional candidate to vote for.
    • 91% of Americans say that there should be at least minor restrictions on gun ownership;
    • 57% of Americans say that there should be major restrictions or a ban.



    Gun violence is a problem in America, and it needs to be contained so that less people have to suffer the loss of family member or a loved one shot by a fellow American or anyone else.
