After multiple school shootings in the United States this year, students at Fremont High School feel it is necessary to enforce stronger background checks. After conducting extensive research, we learned that a majority of the shooters were either underaged or mentally ill, signs that should've suggested they shouldn't own a gun, which leads us to want to bring change to our country's current background checks. From our research, we also learned that countries, such as Australia, who enforce strong background checks and gun regulations have had a significant decrease in the number of mass shootings they have each year. Therefore, we believe that the path to decreasing the number of school shootings is through stronger background checks in our country.
