Open Carry: A Movement for Safety or the Continuance of A Violent Era?

It is perhaps currently one of the most talked about and debated topics in the United States. The ever-intriguing gun debate is being viewed from all sides and sadly, can be measured by the tragedies this nation has faced thus far because of gun violence. Statistically, there have been at least seventy-three public mass shootings across the country since 1982, of which thirty-six have occurred since 2006. According to researchers at Harvard University, mass shootings have been on the rise and thus leads one to wonder whether guns will potentially prevent them or instead create a continuing violent era.
