Female, High School Freshman Writes Logical Pro Gun Editorial – Faith in Next Generation Restored
A freshman by the name of Alyssa VanLiere at Homer High School in Homer, Alaska decided to the next generation of future gun owners needed to weigh on the current gun control debate.
Alyssa doesn’t really make any points that are new to the gun control debate, but it’s extremely encouraging to see someone her age have a proper understanding of the situation.
According to her essay on homernews.com,
The government is currently working on a scheme to take guns away from the law abiding citizens of the U.S. Although they may be taking guns away from the good citizens of America, who’s taking guns away from the criminals with guile intentions? Even though the ultimate goal may be to eliminate the mass shootings in the U.S., taking guns from the citizens of America will not accomplish this goal. The government would not eliminate guns from society this way, but they would eliminate our ability to protect our lives, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. None of the currently debated measures would do anything to prevent any of the recent mass shootings. They would only disarm or make it harder to arm law abiding citizens.
