We Need Background Checks And Evaluation For ALL Gun Purchases

Due to recent events, it is now more crucial than ever to consider background checks for guns. They should be considered before the purchase of a weapon because they will avoid future school shootings and other horrific massacres.

Before someone purchases a gun, they should be thoroughly evaluated to see if they are psychologically stable enough to possess such a weapon. By doing this, those giving the guns can be sure that the person purchasing a gun is stable enough to have control over a weapon. This will also help to avoid future school shootings, and will educate those who sell guns to thoroughly analyze a person before handing them a weapon. This will also help those selling a gun better examine a person's history so they have a better understanding of who they're giving the gun to.

If background checks continue to be ignored, then school shootings will continue to occur, and schools will no longer be safe for America's children.

It is crucial for background checks to be addressed because it will help minimize the number of fateful incidents that occur involving guns each day. It will also help those who are selling guns to better examine the history of the person who wishes to purchase the gun. Background checks should become a law, and every employee working at a gun store should thoroughly learn to evaluate a person before selling them a weapon.

By doing this, safety will be ensured and those who aren't fit to have a weapon will be prohibited from purchasing and using them by rights. Background checks are now more crucial than ever in a society where gun control has become a hot topic. Background checks are essential and will ensure a safer environment if guns are given to the right people.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
