                                                              Persuasive Speech Topic Proposal

                                                          Social Issue: Gun Rights/ Gun control

 

1. More Gun Control doesn’t mean less crime and violence.

              Relation: This topic is related to my issue because some people believe that more gun control means less crime and less violence but this is not always the case.

         B. The reasons why people believe this is because they don’t research on this topic and are persuaded by the media to believe this.

         C. Giving these people examples of states and countries that have enacted heavy guncontrol or even banned guns that still have a lot of crime happening in them may make them see the issue.
