America change your gun laws
America - put down your guns! The US Government urgently needs to make an amendment to the US Constitution - Second Amendment - "Right to Keep and Bear Arms". Change and "Stronger "controls need to be put in place or eliminate guns. Innocent lives are being lost - gun crime is destroying Americans and having an adverse reaction of hysteria, panic and in some cases an unjustified hostile, paranoid response from the police! - Everyone has a right to live - innocent civilians are being shot. No matter if your black /white /Latino - a civilian or a policeman - all lives matter.! America needs to address this urgently - please - introduce tighter controls and change the second Amendment.
Introduce a buy back gun programme. It's proven in Britain, Australia, Japan - tighter gun laws Save lives.
Why is this important?
Too many innocent lives have been lost - Statistics ref BBC: In 2015 - Some 13,286 people were killed in the US by firearms, according to the Gun Violence Archive, and 26,819 people were injured those figures exclude suicide - There were 372 mass shootings in the US in 2015, killing 475 people and wounding 1,870, this is according to the Mass Shooting Tracker, which catalogues such incidents. A mass shooting is defined as a single shooting incident which kills or injures four or more people, including the assailant.. A third of the worlds gun crime is in America. How can Americans show the world that they are a nation of peace and freedom when you have so much gun crime, within America and unfair documented shootings of black individuals?. The world is looking on - observing America's gun laws with great pity - you do not need guns - to show you're a nation of peace - you need friendship and calm.
If you believe America should make an amendment to their guns laws - to save lives - then please sign this petition and help make a difference. Thank you -Please share this on Facebook and Twitter.
