Strict Gun Laws

Roseville High School

I believe gun laws in the U.S. should be stricter because gun violence is increasing every year. I think people commit most of their crimes because they are not afraid of the consequences. It seems as if gun laws don’t hold people accountable, and therefore it causes them to feel that they can get away with a crime easily. Gun laws should seriously affect people who are distributing the illegal firearms in our country.
There are two different distributors, a licensed distributor and a non-licensed distributor. I think gun violence is increasing because individual get their guns from the illegal distributors from the street.
Illegal distributors give guns to anybody and that’s wrong, while on the other hand licensed gun dealers are required to run background checks on who ever purchases a gun.
What is happening is people choose to buy guns from the illegal dealers more and that is the reason why there is a lot of violence in our communities.
In conclusion, the law should crack down more or anybody who deal guns illegally. I believe if they make stricter laws, people would be more hesitant to sell illegal guns and individuals may be more hesitant to commit crimes.
I also believe that background checks should be run monthly. I think that gun control should also be put in the hands of the federal government and by state to state. I think stricter laws can solve a lot of the country’s problems and will help to get these illegal firearms off the street and decrease gun violence.
