been killed using guns between 1968 and 2012, a population that is equivalent to ten, or more U.S largest city population. Although the rate of homicides as a result of gun violence has declined over the years, the rate of gun violence remains substantially high than other nations such as Germany, India, Spain, Sweden, UK, and China (Alpers & Wilson, 2013). Evidently, the misuse of guns has led to millions of death and injuries across the country, but it has also imposed a heavy burden to standards of living to the groups with the highest victimization rates and the community as a whole. Precisely, the issue does not only takes a huge number of minority young man who are affected but also increases fear in business operation and disrupts the community social life. For instance, it is clear, that in areas where gun violence is prevalent, the threat of violence makes the entire neighborhood poorer. According to FBI report (2011), women are also more likely to be killed by intimate partner, which is why a majority of homicides are said to be committed with firearms.

    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.
