Not All Millennials Want To Ban Guns

After the mass shootings that have taken place, gun control and gun laws have become a heated topic in this country. In contrast to the Facebook articles and some who try and argue, not everyone who is not supporting guns, supports a gun ban. I always come across people on Facebook who try and explain through images of shoes from the Holocaust what it means "when people give up their gun rights". Well, I am here to say, not everyone who does not support guns is automatically against you. Yes, there are those out there who do not want guns in the country and they have a right to feel that way, but that is not the majority, not even close. So, before you try and educate those on why guns should not be banned, let's look at the facts.

Most millennials today do not want to just flat out ban guns. In fact, according to Politico Magazine, "respondents aged 18-29 are the least likely in the country to support a renewed ban on assault weapons." This means most millennials are fighting for gun control or the freedom to own a gun, not wanting to ban them like they were in the Holocaust.

Now what exactly does gun control mean? Well most people who want gun control want the process to be more regulated. They want people to still be able to obtain guns, but through the process. According to a pie chart from Hilltop Views, 57% percent of people said gun laws should be more restricted and according to a bar chart from the society pages, around 95% of people said they favor background checks. So from the numbers, most people want to see restrictions on guns. They want it to become harder for people to obtain a gun through more serious and intense background checks and the guns laws in this country becoming more restricted or limited. According to a pie chart on CNN, 55% of people favor stricter gun laws.

So the country can calm down. Most Americans do not want to ban guns all together and our country will be okay in the future. In fact, around 90% opposed the idea of no guns period according to the bar chart from society pages.

To all the images on social media provoking ideas of fear for the future. I am not a bit concerned where the country is headed. Again not a gun ban, but a regulated process.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
