Guns in America – Voices

“If the worst thing that can happen is a fist fight, I rather prefer that than a gun fight.”
Long Island
I support the current gun control laws. I feel like yeah, it can be stricter, but at the end of the day, people have the choice to do what they want. It really doesn’t matter what kind of laws you have because there is always a way to get around them.

The problem is that people don’t want to take responsibility for what their kids do. They would rather just place the blame on somebody else or on mental health. Now, I’m not saying people don’t have mental health problems and don’t go through life struggles, but if it’s really that bad, then why aren’t they seeking counseling or seeing a therapist.

A lot of things can be avoided if they have some type of security or police officer on duty at the schools. Also, when it comes to bullies, I feel like it’s the parents responsibility to teach their kids to be tough and to fight back. Our kids aren’t sent to school to fight but life isn’t fair, nor does it play by their rules, so the faster they learn the better.

Now, the police brutality issue is something that needs to be changed right now. I feel like the police academy needs to revise their training for cops and also their psych evaluation needs to be redone, because there is no reason cops should fear a certain people because of their skin color or ethnicity.

All the reports and excuses cops use for the killing of unarmed civilians is disturbing. It’s even worse because they get away with it with no repercussions.

My thoughts on all the school shootings is that a lot of things can be avoided if we teach our kids to be tough, rather than have them think this world is going to be nice to them because they are nice. I would prefer if my child gets into a fist fight than to know they went to the school and killed people for bullying them.

I feel like that should be most parents’ thought process, because you can’t stop a fight nor make everybody get along. So, if the worst thing that can happen is a fist fight, I rather prefer that than a gun fight.
