For an average child in America in 2018, being in a school where at any moment a kid can pull out his father’s handgun is scary. For the average adult, a grown man pulling out a new AR-15 on the entire mall crowd has a higher chance than what it may seem. The events are real, they have happened, they will happen again. Either a lost, damaged child is bullied until he feels as if the only option left is to slay 20 children in his own classroom. Or maybe, a grown man, 18 or 19, was tortured as a child, abused and scared deathly of everyone since his whole life he has taken mental abuse from his old classmates, and decided to buy a new AR-15 to approach his old school and kill 17 innocent, loving teenagers without any mercy. Living a day knowing that dying is a legitimate fear is not a world any American should live in. Going to school and getting an education should not be scary. Whether someone’s daughter will live through the day safely at school should NOT be a worry. Therefore, this paper will further in-depth explain why things should change, maybe why they should not, and how these issues correlate with everyone on a daily basis.
