In today's America, we are surrounded by guns. We see more school shootings, and terroristic attacks, like with the recent Tree of Life Jewish synagogue shooting that left 11 dead. What Americans should think about it is what life would be like with more guns and what life would be like with fewer guns.
Sometimes we value material objects more than others, especially in today's competitive environment. We should instead look towards the value of our character and the value we can provide to others' lives with our time or money.
