MeWelcome to the thoughts and views on gun violence from myself, Donald Morrison, and my fellow peers.  I’m currently a senior from Queens, NY, anticipating a degree in Communication here at the University of Maryland.  Our university, as well as our nation, have been dealing with various unfortunate events lately due to the misuse of guns.  Our nation was founded with the use of guns and today it seems as if it’s leading to our downfall. I’ve been personally losing friends since I was 14 due to gun violence all because the gun ended up in the hands of the wrong person.  So, we’re here to keep you updated with information surrounding  gun violence, feel free to contribute to the conversation and enjoy.

Taryn Pope

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.

My name is Ariel Woolfolk and I am a senior at the University of Maryland. I have a passion for sports, specifically basketball, and I am working toward becoming a sports reporter for an NBA team. Gun violence is an ongoing issue in America’s society and when I have my own children I want them to feel safe wherever they are, especially in schools. The recent mass murders is has called for law makers and citizens to take a stand to correct this problem. I want to explore what has been done about this issue and things that are left to be done.

Hi I’m Sakyi, Senior Communications: General Studies Major.  I am from Lanham, MD.  I went to boarding school most of my life so I have experienced a lot of diversity in my life.  My career goal is to work with a sports team, specifically basketball in the game operations department with the Miami Heat! My stance on gun violence is that the Govt needs a more efficient way of controlling who can purchase guns.  I personally think the price to purchase guns should increase significantly , so that it does not fall into the common man a lot easier.
