2 RUNNING HEAD: PROPOSAL ARGUMENT The Ultimate Accountability Mass shootings need to be shot in the foot; people are constantly throwing their hands in the air and crying after a tragic event, but nothing is being done to prevent tragedies from occurring. It is often misunderstood that those who are protesting for action to be taken, are avoiding the unfortunate events which have occurred, but that is not the case. Cautionary measures need to be taken before an event such as a mass shooting occurs. Currently, in America, cautionary action is not being taken in order to prevent potentially life threatening events from occurring before they happen. As United States citizens, it is a duty to take progressive steps to avoid such events before tragedy strikes. For example, if a house is flooded, the roof does not need to be raised; in order to fix the problem, the water needs to be pumped out of the house. To fix the issue of mass shootings, congress needs to pass a bill which holds firearm owners similarly accountable to the person who uses the weapon in order to provide incentive to keep guns in a secure place and away from children or mentally ill people. Mass shootings are far too common. Since 2007, “a total of 170 people have been killed in the United States by mass shootings” (2015, FBI); that is an average of 17 people per year who have been shot and killed due to a gun. Mass shooting is a broad term and not clearly defined; loosely, the term “mass shooting” refers to a shooting which involves multiple deaths.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
