What can America do to stop mass killings?

by Jeff Lightsy Jr.

I would first like to send my condolences to the families that were affected by the shooting that took place in Lafayette , Louisiana. It is far to often that tragedies like this happen in America. So what can we do as American citizens to prevent these tragic incident? Yes, we all know that there is no possible way that we will ever be able to eliminate all that is evil in this world. Therefore incidents such as this one will continue to happen. But here in America it happens way more than any other country. So often that many politicians, including President Obama have called for the passing of gun control laws.

Yes, hundreds of Americans are killed every year. We  have a huge problem (especially in the city of Chicago) with gang violence and murders. But that is a different issue for another time. On the issue of mass killings of innocent people at places like movie theaters, churches, and schools how can we as a nation fix this problem. If nothing else how can we at least slow it down? Is gun control the answer? I’m not sure, but what I am sure of is because of the continuance of events such as this one, myself and many other Americans will be on high alert when entering an public domain. In my video I further detail what may be some possible solutions.
