Enforce Stricter Gun Regulations

This year alone, as of the 14th of February, more than 1,800* deaths have occurred as a result of gun violence. In a mere 44 days (not including today), more than 6,800 people have been injured by a firearm. There have already been more mass shootings than school days, at a running total of 30, thus far. 

Only around 180 of these 6,800 injuries were due to a defensive use of a firearm, despite what many gun rights activists would have a person believe.

It is essential that we, as the responsible American people that we are, begin enforcing stricter gun regulations and background checks for all those looking to purchase weapons. For example, no civilian honestly has any reason to ever need a semi-automatic weapon, even for self-defense. Limiting the ability of a person to acquire a gun and ensuring that they; a) have a need for it, and b) are in the proper state of mind to possess such a dangerous weapon will undoubtedly lower the sheer number of fatal and harmful incidents involving guns in the U.S.
