Research: Thesis and Plan of Action
Thesis Statement: In order to reducing the climbing rates of gun violence it is important to understand how gun violence in America works so we can support and implement the necessary precautions such as background checks for all gun sales, buy back campaigns, and gun safety classes.
Plan of Action: Gun violence is preventable, but we will never be able to obtain this awe-inspiring goal without action. We need mandatory background checks to be passed. Background checks are the easiest form of gun laws to pass and has been proven over and over again to be the most effective form of gun violence prevention. We need to push for gun buyback campaigns to become better advertised and get more funding so they can increase the rewards given to the people who turn in their guns. We need to educate the population so we can reduce the number of accidental gun related deaths and better prepare everyone for any situation they may encounter involving a gun. By doing any of these things, it is one hundred precent reasonable to believe that we can one day live in a safer world without gun violence.
