I have heard a lot about gun violence on the news lately...
Guns have become a very controversial topic in this world lately.
How do you think we can get people to really understand this topic?
They really have.
Maybe if people heard some statistics they could understand more.
Well, I know that in 2016, 4,648 young people ages 10-24 were victims of homicide- an average of 13 each day.
Very true. Does anyone know any because I definitely don’t?
I know that there are more than 393 million guns in circulation in the U.S.
Wow, all of these statistics are crazy.
It is also said that suicide is a big percentage of gun violence.
That is so sad. I wish people knew they had someone to talk to if they ever felt upset.
People shouldn’t be afraid to admit that they need help. It is always okay to talk to someone about what is making them feel that down.
Very true there is even a phone number people can call for help. It is 1-800-273-8255.
Maybe getting the word out about that number can help save a lot of lives, and help reduce the numbers of gun violence. Hopefully people won’t feel the need to turn to guns and ruin so many other lives when all they can do is call that hotline to talk to someone.
