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.

I woke up, like any other night, in a bed full of nightmares, drenched in sweat that stuck coldly to my skin, as a reminder of the dreams I couldn’t escape. The dream was so vivid, I felt it physically burn on my cheek. I wondered if the sting from the slap was worse simply because her eyes held no remorse, not an ounce of respect.
