Did you know that in total “ U.S. Guns kill more than 38,000 people and cause nearly 85,000 injuries each year.” Gun violence is an issue that has affected many over the course of the years and it only seems to increase more and more.

Now here in Chicago specifically this year (2021) it did not have a great start. There have been many people injured, lost, and affected by gun violence. Friends, family, and loved ones have been killed and hurt. Now, what have the higher-ups done? Not much. We still see many instances where a mass shooting, robberies with a firearm, or shooting have taken place and it ends with many getting hurt or badly injured. We turn on the news, open up social media just to find out that a child was walking their dog and was shot, a store owner was robbed at gunpoint, another mass school shooting, or even worse a police officer shooting an innocent individual. This shouldn't be something we see happen so frequently. We should be able to go outside without having to worry about whether or not we can make it safely home back from the corner store or if we could work safely without being held at gunpoint. Gun violence affects many people and there must be something done once and for all! 

We are confronting a serious issue that needs action taken by our mayor, governor, and even our president. Please help stand up against gun violence by signing this petition!
