    It seems to me like gun control is the best solution to not only school shootings, but gun violence in general in America. I do not believe this solution completely interferes with our second amendment right, but it will prevent access to guns which were designed for mass murder to people with violent intentions. I believe this will work because of gun control’s success in other countries. According to BBC News article by Harry Low(http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-38365729), of all of the countries in the world, Japan’s rates of gun crime are the lowest. The article goes on to explain that the process to purchase a gun includes mental health and drug tests, a class, an exam, and a shooting range test in which a score of 95% must be achieved in order to pass. Although this process may sound excessive, it has been proven that the tighter the gun control laws are that are put into place, the fewer deaths caused by gun violence occur. I believe everyone deserves the right to not fear their own lives and the lives of those around them in spaces such as schools, churches, and restaurants. Life is precious and we must work to protect it in our country.

    I am glad to see so many students stepping up and looking for a solution to this nationwide issue.
