The purpose for this petition is to make the laws surrounding gun control more strict. In doing so we can make it so America is no longer the only first world country with so many yearly deaths against innocent people from gun violence. With the existence of the Second Amendment, it is not possible to eradicate the right of citizens of the United States to be allowed to bear arms. With all the data collected annually on this topic, it is undisputed that at the very least it needs to be more difficult for anyone to obtain a gun. Congress really needs to reconsider the current laws considering that the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791, and with each passing year guns become more lethal and should not be allowed in the hands of just anybody.
