Since the right to bear arms was enshrined in the United States Constitution over 200 years ago, federal gun laws have been an evolving concept. Initially meant to allow citizens to protect themselves against a tyrannical government, the Second Amendment, and what it allows, has become a source of near constant debate among gun owners, advocates, law enforcement, and the media. In the wake of seemingly increasing incidences of school-based gun violence over the last 20 years, beginning with the Columbine High School shooting (and particularly in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting), the conversation has been shifting more and more toward how to restrict gun rights and strengthen gun laws. Taking a look at our history, however, shows that this is not the first time a rash of crimes has started this conversation in the US.
One moment you're on top of the world, playing your hardest out on the field. The next, you're laying flat on the grass wondering what just happened while your ankle screams in protest. Almost every athlete has been in this position before, and it's every athletes nightmare; the dreaded sports injury. While it is every athletes worst-case scenario, but most athletes will suffer from a sports injury of some kind. Common sports injuries include things like joint sprains, dislocations, and muscle strains. For some people this might feel as if it's the end of the world, but that just isn't the case these days. There are many things that can be done at home, as well as in the doctor's office, for sprained ankles, broken wrists, and swollen muscles that will help you get back out on the field quickly.

America is the world’s leader in gun-related killings. In the US, it costs as much money to own a MacBook, as it does to own an assault rifle. This is relatively little compared to the rest of the world. Additionally, the US has not tightened its gun legislation in response to mass shootings, as has been done in Australia after a mass shooting in 1996, or in New Zealand after the recent shooting in Christchurch.
