Gun control debate: Background checks
"There's no fate but what we make for ourselves".
I am a 16 years old Malaysian teen who is dreaming of going to USA to study and live there since I am a child. Due to my pro USA stance, I sometimes have some disagreement with my schoolmates who are not as like-minded as me.
However, recently I am shocked to hear the tragic Sandy Hook school shooting spree that took 26 innocent lives. This made me to rethink going to USA according to my plans and made me became scared that whether I will be the next victim of the next shooting spree if Mr President hasn't ban firearm sales to people with troubled background. So, I, together with WE THE PEOPLE, hopes that Obama will ban firearms sales to these people for a BETTER and SAFER future.

Finally, I would like to share a quote from the Terminator film : "There's no fate but what we make for ourselves".
