Urgent higher english helpWatch
Hi, I'm stressing out over my English folio that's due tomorrow and I've wrote a draft on gun control in the USA but I feel like it's terrible so I need a good intro that will really persuade and engage the reader, I was thinking how America is portrayed as more of a fantasy in movies and the American dream opens opportunities but there's still problems with gun violence, I just don't know how to word it or link it to gun control, any help would be great!!
Perhaps introduce with statistics? They can be bold and eye catching which is why a lot of newspapers use them. However I would suggest if you want to be more critical which often gets you more marks, argue both sides. Perhaps look at countries that have gun laws but still have a lot of gun crime?
Yeah I did start off with a statistic, I was hoping to just argue one side to make it persuasive so I've went down the route of saying that countries with strict gun laws have less gun deaths
Counterargument against that would be are you trying to say that countries with strict gun laws, they reduce death overall? You can have less guns, but there are more weapons that can be used to kill people. (This is just an idea, I don't think it's related to what you're talking about lol. (feel free to correct me))
