It's been almost ten years since Sandy Hook, 23 since Columbine, 4 since Parkland, and mass shootings are still on the rise. We hear this on the news as I become increasingly concerned for Gen Alpha and their future. It's an endless cycle, someone shoots up a public place, people die, it makes the news, sets the world on fire, the government doesn't bat an eye, and repeats. I am greatly dissatisfied with our government at the moment. At airports, theme parks, courthouses, stadiums, etc, they screen people for weapons but don't at schools, which need it more than ever nowadays, and we as Americans only have ourselves to blame for this. We need stricter gun laws, but people are too stubborn to support that. Though I know stricter gun laws will not prevent gun violence, they will reduce gun violence, and we need them to protect our citizens!
