"WE CAN End Gun Violence."
It's true, the United States of America is plagued with gun violence. Mass shootings are becoming an everyday thing that Americans are simply indifferent to. Some claim that gun violence is no worse or even decreasing in the US however others are wondering how these people don't realize gun violence in our country is a problem.
Recently in San Bernardino, California, 16 people were shot in a mass shooting that captured the nation's attention. It was shocking quite frankly because we've ignored many shootings like this for weeks however this one was very public, very deadly, and very unnecessary. This week, the Everytown for Gun Safety YouTube channel released a video filled with the biggest celebrities in the industry : Sophia Vergara, Jennifer Aniston, Amy Schumer, and more. They all promoted the idea that America NEEDS to end gun violence! Even Barak Obama was in this video! It just goes to show just how important this issue is.
Guns in America are a huge debate. Some believe that all Americans should have access to guns for personal protection. Some believe that having guns only leads to a continuous string of tragedy. Most countries around the world are baffled at how in love Americans are to when it comes to their guns. It's a society and cultural thing of which our country was founded on however it's becoming an increasingly huge problem that we can't ignore.
