Regarding the shooting at the Oregon community college, I strongly believe President Barack Obama’s move to promote stricter gun control is necessary. Even though the 2nd Amendment states the “right to bear arms,” not every citizen should have this privilege unless he or she can prove so. This is exemplified with the Oregon shooting but also with many others.

With the amount of people getting shot and killed in the United States, more people should believe in gun control. It is nauseating to know that one person is able to get a gun so easily; it is not healthy for people to fear that his or her life could be in danger while doing daily life activities due to the freedom another person has.
