Gun Violence


Matthew Williams, Advertising Team

Gun violence is a leading cause of premature death in the U.S. guns kill more than 38,000 people and cause nearly 85,000 injuries each year. As a longtime advocate for violence prevention policies, APHA recognizes a comprehensive public health approach to addressing this growing crisis is necessary. I believe that we should all have the right to own guns and do what we want with them. However, I do not think it’s okay to just shoot people. This world is so crazy when I see someone with a gun I kind of hesitate.
