Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Treysen Anderson, Guest Writer

October 8, 2019

Alright. I’ll humor you. Let’s say it is the fault of the guns that these people are being murdered. From mass school shootings to gang brawls to hate deaths, in all of these cases the guns can and should be blamed for the bloodshed. After all, 14,000 people were killed in gun related incidents last year. Let us restrict, establish gun-free zones against, and even ban guns. And, following this same principle, all road fatalities brought to pass by texting and driving can and should be blamed on the phone. 40,000 people were killed by car wrecks, and roughly half of those were caused by phones, leading to a grand total of 20,000 deaths due to phones. However, in these cases, the phone is merely ignored and we continue on, warning and encouraging our communities to use their phones wisely, when we all know that phones should be restricted and we should establish phone-free zones to protect our citizens.

Let’s put ourselves in the position of an American citizen during the cold war. The pressure is intense. As a nation, the United States has the responsibility of guarding itself from Josef Stalin and other U.S.S.R leaders.

The frigid November air dissipated as I stepped into my makeshift cottage. I took off my cloak. It was the only spot of color in the bare, bleak room. Looking around, I sighed. Everything that had happened in the past few years had finally caught up with me. Throughout history, it has always been the same....

Richard Nixon stated, "When the President does it, that means that it's not illegal”. Thanks to the investigative reporting of Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, whether or not that was true wasn’t up to Nixon, but to the people of the United States of America. Perhaps it's fitting that Richard Nixon...
