By now, almost everyone around the world is aware of the apparent gun control controversy going on in the United States; but no one has the grapes to tell us that gun control isn’t the only thing we need. Pointing the main blame on inanimate objects is completely ridiculous; especially when there are sickos out there preying on innocents or hurt people who are looking to take out there pain on people who don’t deserve it.

Of course, the people have found someone for their scapegoat, the NRA The NRA(National Rifle Association) is an American nonprofit organization that advocates for gun rights. Since its founding in 1871, the NRA has racked a whopping 5 million and some members. The group has informed its members about firearm-related bills since 1934, and it has directly lobbied for and against legislation since 1975. It has been called “the oldest continuously operating civil liberties organization” and “one of the largest and best-funded lobbying organizations” in the United States. Founded to advance rifle marksmanship, the modern NRA continues to teach firearm competency and safety. The organization also publishes several magazines and sponsors competitive marksmanship events. The organization is led by a board of 76 elected members who are nominated by committee or by petition from the membership. The NRA has been criticized by gun control and gun rights advocacy groups, political commentators, and politicians. The organization has been the focus of intense criticism in the aftermath of high-profile shootings, such as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

In my honest opinion, the recent protests of the NRA are kind of ridiculous, as if they are to blame for a sick young man in need of capital punishment. It would be like saying that the NRA has mind control over everyone with a gun, and makes them go do things like: kill children in schools, movie theaters, and even churches. I mean really, what could the NRA have really done in any of these situations? The men and women in that building just go to work everyday like anyone else and do what have to do to make a living; they have no part in this madness the american people have created. During the recent meeting shown above between the Stoneman survivors and Dana Loesch from the NRA, the survivors as well as the audience were rude to the woman who came and spoke for the NRA. She wasn’t rude with them, she let them speak and get their word across and bash her; but when it was her turn to speak, everyone was interrupting, making side comments, booing and just being outright disrespectful toward someone who took time out of their day to try to set things straight. The people of America should really be bashing Scot Peterson, the school safety officer who hid from the massacre, because he could have easily saved them and apprehended the shooter. Their police force itself should be bashed, or at least even looked into, by those mean children and their one-sided audience members.

    I hope one day the gun violence end. This problem is taking a lot of innocent life’s that it could has been a doctor, lawyer, or maybe the next president. We need to help our kids to be better in life they can have a big purpose for their future and then they can help to change the violence per peace.

    One would think that if a young boy assaulted a kid with a stick, the stick wouldn’t be the one going to the principals office. That being said, in the society we live in with are struggles of gun violence, one may ask, why are the rifles put into the hands of civilians the object to take the blame? though one may argue that an AR-15 is too much power for an average person to keep under their bed, is taking the given right to bear arms the solution to the school shootings, public massacres, and countless number of lives lost or is their a greater answer that we fail to see because we don’t know how to make everyone happy?
