Many people think that stricter gun control laws would keep America safer, but gun control will never take firearms out of the hands of criminals and is a violation of our second amendment right. I. what is the pro gun control position? A. “The USA has experienced recent gun-related tragedies, including the deaths of 14 students and 1 teacher at Columbine High School in Denver, Colorado in April 1999, and the death of 12 citizens by a trader in Atlanta, Georgia, in July of the same year. On 14 May 2000 (Mother's Day in the USA) hundred of thousands of mothers and their families held a ‘Million Mom March’ in Washington, DC, the largest gun-control rally ever, and demonstrated in 70 other US cities.” 1.

B. “Solicitor General Elena Kagan told the court that the law is a "vital part of the nation's effort to fight international terrorism,” 1. This is not an effective way of taking guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists. 2. Criminals are not abiding by the same laws that the majority of people up hold II.

    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.
