Strict Background Checks Should Be Enforced

"40 percent of gun sales are conducted without any background check at all" (upfrontmagazine.com).This makes it easier for convicted felons,domestic abusers, and those with a dangerous history of mental illness to obtain weapons that could potentially harm American citizens.

There Have Been Too Many Lives Lost!

"There were 464,033 total gun deaths between 1999 and 2013: 270,237 suicides (58.2% of total deaths); 174,773 homicides (37.7%); and 9,983 unintentional deaths (2.2%)" (procon.org). Too many innocent lives are lost everyday due to gun violence, some of these can be prevented if guns are regulated in the United States.

High-Capacity Magazines Should Be Banned

"High capacity magazines were used in at least 50% of the 62 mass shootings between 1982 and 2012. When high capacity magazines were used in mass shootings, the death rate rose 63% and the injury rate rose 156%" (procon.org).



"A high capacity magazine 'turns a killer into a killing machine.'"
