Australia had a fairly bad history of shootings until laws were changed after the Port Arthur massacre. Since then, the amount of gun violence in Australia has significantly dropped and mass shootings have been practically nonexistent.
America on the other hand, has a shockingly high number of mass shootings. In 2018 alone, there were 340 mass shootings (defining a mass shooting as a shooting in which 4 or more people are injured or killed, not including the shooter)
I’m the leader of a chapter of the March For Our Lives movement, a youth-led national movement working to end gun violence in the United States. We were founded in the aftermath of the February 14th school shooting last year in Parkland, Florida that claimed 17 innocent lives.
As a high level politician from the country that is probably the best example of a country that effectively and efficiently reduced their problems with gun violence, is there advice can you give us? What steps should we be trying to take? What laws do you think would be the most effective in reducing gun violence?
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your time.
