Following the devastating mass shooting on February 14th at a Florida high school, gun control has been the topic of discussion throughout our nation.
A debate that has been common and quite simple is: gun control or banning all guns.
I went to ask San Jose State University Senior, Chevonne Miller her thoughts on America’s current gun control policies.
Chevonne: I think that my right to go to school and get an education without worrying about whether or not I’m going to survive the day definitely is more important than anybody’s right to carry a gun.
Me: After talking to Chevonne, I met Vidisha who seemed to have knowledge on this topic and a very strong opinion.
Vidisha: So many of these people that have committed these mass shootings are easily able to get these literally, like, huge guns. It’s not just a handgun, they are assault rifles that are able to kill a large amount of people.
Vidisha went on saying that she doesn’t think the elimination of purchasing guns will ever happen but proper legislation on gun sales needs to be put in effect immediately.
Me: Well, it seems quite clear the focus is gun control because quite frankly, there really isn’t any control.
Me: I’m Jessica Stopper, thank you for listening.
