Three years ago, I never thought my English skills would improve to this point; they are not perfect, but much, much better than I thought I’d achieve.

EDITORIAL: Firearm restrictions hinder protection against potential threats

Since the founding of America, US citizens have kept firearms to defend themselves and their families from potential threats. The founding fathers even transcribed “the right to bear arms” as the Second Amendment in order to preserve the sanctity of the five freedoms. In the past years, certain politicians such as Dianne Feinstein and Pete Buttigieg and activist groups such as Antifa call for the raising age restriction of firearms. If an 18-year-old possess the ability to vote and join the military, they possess the ability to own a firearm with a background check.
