Reasons for Gun Violence
In 1988, handguns killed 7 people in Great Britain, 13 in Australia, 8 in Canada, and 8,915 in the United States. Between 1973 and 1992, the number of privately-owned firearms in the US increased 73%; from 122 million to nearly 222 million. (Brennen and Polsby 1). These figures are shocking and there doesn't seem to be a solution. Gun control is a problem that our country has got to face. The reasons for gun violence are complex and apparently deep-rooted with an average of roughly 11,127 people killed by guns each year. (Moore).
One of the most alarming issues dealing with gun control is juvenile violence. A large percent of crimes committed with guns are by children. No one has yet been able to pinpoint the exact reason children commit such a terrible crime. Many experts feel that risk factors associated with juvenile gun-related crime are poverty, drugs, easy access to firearms, and unstable family life.
