Hello, My name is Taryn Pope. I am a Senior Communications major who is in love with sports and Beyonce. I am from Bowie, MD and have one younger brother. When it comes to gun violence, I personally get extremely passionate and upset because I have loss people I know to gun violence. It’s a serious issue in our community especially amongst our youth. It seems as though, any day anyone can have a gun, and if you don’t have one, you probably aren’t safe. I believe if the government creates a more efficient way to control who is carrying a gun, it can help prevent the amount of parents that unfortunately have to bury their children.
