    I definitely think we need to keep our right to bear arms. For the protection of our nation and American rights but we need to enforce reonsibility.
    As a parent of teenage boys I am concerned about the next generations use of guns as many are spending a majority of their free time playing videos that are extremely war like and getting more violent. With so many things facing kids to feel angry about I think we are headed into more shootings as releases of their hurts and confusions.
