Prayers and Consolations There have been many children that have lost their lives in school shootings in the United States. A parent sends their children off to school to get an education and never does occur in their minds that in the place they consider to be a safe zone, there children can lose their lives. In the recent years there have been many deaths due to guns. Many of those deaths are due to school shootings in which have left many families without their loved ones.

Banning all guns would solve all the issues we been having with guns these past decade. It seems banning is the only solution to this problem, it sounds easy to do and the right thing to do, but if guns do get ban, it would only make the matter worst.

The reason why I want the age limit to be 21 is because many of the past tragedies that have been causes by guns have been from shooters who are below the age of 21.
