Relating to recent events Trump has stated he wants to arm teachers at schools due to the school shootings around the country. Many people have stated their opinion on the matter but not much is known on how gun owners feel on the matter. In this video three individuals who are gun advocates are interviewed to let their opinion on the matter. To summarize what was said they feel that Trump shouldn't be forcing individuals to be armed and that raising to age requirement for gun ownership wouldn't achieve much. I feel this article is adequate because it shows gun owners have standards on who should be able to use and own guns.
My reasoning for choosing this image is because of how it address both sides of the gun control topic. Pro-gun control people typically want more and more restrictions on what people can buy from stores. While the opposite side feels responsibility and blame fall on those who purchased the gun in the first place. Pointing out irresponsible owners who commit terrible crimes by utilizing guns is the primary response most anti-gun owners give. Now that's not to say all gun owners are anti-gun control, as mentioned before it takes the right people with the right mind set to realize that the more people with guns creates more chance of the wrong person to be at the wrong time with someone that's been planning to do something morbid.
Most people would think gun owners have a gun for the sake of vanity or a power complex. But it's not that simple, many gun owners have a story to go along their purchase of firearms. Many have guns in their homes for protection out of feeling safe. Gun owners feel more safe with their firearms because they know there's bad people in there world willing to do harm. Many pro-gun enthusiast also understand that gun control is a good thing because it keeps those they don't want have access to guns that more less of a threat families and innocent people.
After many violent incidents involving guns many wonder if gun control is relevant to citizens owning guns themselves. Well gun owner Judith Pearson who owns several rifles stands and ex-principle of a school is with those who are pro-gun control. After incidents like the Las Vegas shooting Pearson felt something had to be done. Pearson started her boycott to the NRA by sending several tweets about her mindset on gun control. One thing lead to another and more people with similar ideals were able to convince companies to cut ties with the NRA.
