Act now

Another student lost his life after unknown suspects opened fire at his vehicle. The incident took place on Sunday (Dec 3) and has given rise to an important debate: should citizens be allowed to carry weapons? We have seen how minor accidents and petty fights have led to extreme consequences. Although having a gun doesn’t mean that the person is a threat to society, the lack of gun-control laws in the country gives a person the liberty to use his weapon openly. It has become easy for people to pull out their gun and shoot a person.
No one would feel safer if he knows that any person on streets can pull out the gun and shoot. The gun culture has already created a wave of fear in our country. Many people have been robbed of their valuable items at gun point. We can find numerous occasions where an incident could have been avoided, had the people involved not used their weapons. Why is it difficult for our government to implement strict gun-control laws? Does the life of a citizen hold no importance? Yesterday it was a young boy. Tomorrow it can be anyone of us. Act before it’s too late.
