United States needs better gun laws

Dear Editor,

Well, there’s been another shooting in the United States. I am so glad we live in Canada, where the gun laws are a lot more restrictive. I know that we have a problem with guns here, but they do not even have the laws in the United States that we do. Can you imagine what life would be like if we had such lackluster laws here?

I know that there are those of you out there that are constantly saying “not in my backyard.” Well, when it happens to you, then you will be singing a different tune!

I do not wish harm on anyone, but if the U.S. had our laws, then we wouldn’t be opening a paper or see on our computers almost daily now that someone else has shot and killed numerous people! It just wouldn’t be happening!

Of course, a lot of these guns are illegal in the U.S., but a lot more are legal! What does that say? The reason that we are having a gun problem is that most of the guns used in illegal acts are smuggled in, a fact that they do not have to deal with in the U.S. You can just get a buddy to help you get a gun or even your parents!
