As of recent events, gun violence is a problem in the United States. It's not like shootings could threaten a lot of people, it's just that everyone who's a Republican promotes the uses of guns, just because it's in the Second Amendment. But considering that I fear for a country run by Donald Trump, who's a Republican, I should digress.
