Gun laws and background checks should be changed; thousands of innocent people are killed each year at the fault of a gun falling in the wrong hands.

The best way to reduce gun risks is to remove guns from home. Candamo 2 Children suicide has truly become a problem of outbreak proportions in America that must be addressed from every direction. As numerous studies have shown, children use guns in roughly two out of every three-suicide attempt, and handguns are used in 70% of these. In 1998 alone, 1200 youth in America committed suicide with a gun, the same of one every seven hours. Children suicide attempts are usually impulsive acts, and the easier it is to carry out.
