Americans a lot of times don't realize that the problems are the guns. There needs to be restrictions regarding these deadly weapons because in the past few years shootings have been rising and it scary to be honest. Recently a gun bill was passed in Florida because of the high school shooting there. This bill made a few good improvements such as raising the legal age to buy a gun and banning stocks, but here's where it goes downhill, teacher carrying firearms. Not a good idea as I said the guns are the problem we need to get away from them not bring them closer it more dangerous this way. This bill was a step in the right direction but still needs a lot of work done.
