There are some misspellings and grammar mistakes that were a little jarring to read. I also noticed a very strong anti-gun bent, blaming guns for a significant amount of juvenile crime. I can honestly say that I never knew a single juvenile who had a gun or used one in during a crime. Taking away guns isn't going to solve the problem of juvenile delinquency.
