ege. Gun control laws prevents citizens of the U.S. to live their lives completely. Gun control should not be legalized in the United States, because everyone shouldn’t be blamed for some people’s choices/mistakes. According to Paul Gosar/The Second Amendment is a fundamental right/1-17-13 he said, “Some of us recognize a simple reality — there are bad people who do bad things.

The must be wrong because if it was number 1 then it would a be a much higher percentage rate. That indicates that gun violence isn’t the problem. It was in the top 15 but how about the other 14 leading causes of death? I bet they are much worse. It is a high percentage of suicides
