Guns in America – Voices

“With the recent incidents of shooting that has occurred in our country, we need stricter gun laws in order to deter from events that have haunted us for the past four years.”
Orange County, NY
Coming from the city, where its known for high rate of violence and drugs, I’ve always been in support of gun control. With the recent incidents of shooting that has occurred in our country, we need stricter gun laws in order to deter from events that have haunted us for the past four years.

I think it is right for a person to carry a gun but only rubber bullets can be loaded. I feel that if they only sell rubber bullets to civilians, it can drastically cut mass shootings down to zero. Not only are they non-lethal but it hurts like a regular bullet.

Now imagine if the Las Vegas mass shooter had access to nothing but rubber bullets. There would have been little to no causalities. Some people may have been hurt but nobody would have died.

I want the gun laws to be stricter, but this option can satisfy almost everybody because if only police officers could carry lethal rounds, then when they encounter a criminal with a gun, they would know it’s only rubber bullets loaded. This can cut down on many killings that have happened in these past four years.

At the end of the day, a life lost, no matter whose it is, will always be the biggest tragedy out of the situation. I think this in our best short-term option right now that would limit a lot of killings, especially between minorities and police.

I think many actions can be taken to relieve some of the tension between minorities and police. One idea is community events. I feel like having the police interact with the community more and putting all of our anger and distrust for them into something else can make things a lot less tense for everybody.
