To: Senator Sherrod Brown From: Christian Ball Date: October 17, 2019 Subject: Gun Control I am writing this memo to you today to discuss the issue of guns in the U.S. More and more we are seeing mass shooting happen which brings up one big question. Should the U.S. increase its regulations on guns? About 36,000 Americans are killed each year by guns with over 100,000 more being injured by them. Gun deaths in the U.S. have increased by 16% from 2014- 2017. States with very strict guns laws like, Hawaii who only has 2 gun deaths per 100,000, have lower gun violence than those with loose laws such as, Alaska who has nearly 25 deaths per 100,000 due to guns. Compared to peer nations, such as France and Canada, people living in the U.S. are 25 times more likely to die from gun violence. Homicides are not even the biggest issue when it comes to gun deaths. 61% of all gun deaths are suicide. This is because guns are easy to acquire, effective killing machines. The most chilling stat of all is that 1,500 children each year are killed by guns.

    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.
