Washington Post.”(2014).

This is a web article that educates people about realities, illusions, and resolutions about

the gun violence. This highlights that violence of gun is reducing, by statistics shootings

in school are rare and gun violence can be reduced. It is a praiseworthy source because it

provides lots of information related to distinct aspects of gun violence. This source will

help display facts and solutions linked to gun violence.

Fowler, Katherine A., et al. “Firearm injuries in the United States.” Preventive medicine 79

(2015): 5-14.

It discusses the issue of fatal and non-fatal gun violence in U.S. Additionally, it describes

assault, homicide, self-directed and unintentional gun injuries trends over 20 years

together with recent demographic characteristics of victimization and health

consequences. Details here would enable my arguments to be endorsed.

illustrates the issue of firearm violence as well as presenting examples of where gun use

ended in tragedy. Also talks regarding rates of mental disorders related to these brutal crimes.

Miles, Kathleen. “AB 202: CA Schools Could Arm Teachers, Principals, Janitors If Republican

Bill Passes” The Huffington Post. TheHuffingtonPost.com, 31 Jan. 2013. Web. 25 July2014.

This article is a web article that examines the plan of principals, janitors and teachers

being equipped with firearms within California schools in order to build an invisible

defense line. Moreover, the article emphasizes that if the proposal is passed on arming the

staff, then the district of the school would be allowed to spend money to offer skills to

those volunteering staff. I think this article is useful because it describes thoughts of

mitigating gun violence apart from just discussing about gun violence.

setting filled with unarmed, innocent people. Since the occurrence of these events of violence has

increased in the past decade, an argument has arisen as to whether the USA government should

should increase or decrease the availability of guns? This makes killing easy to accomplish when

people have access to firearm.
