This issue has been hotly debated by lawmakers in California over the past several years and now LegiSchool wants high school students to weigh in.
California has some of the nation’s toughest gun laws, with several more gun-control bills working their way through the legislature. Are tough gun laws effective in making communities safer? Have lawmakers passed too many gun-control laws? Who’s right and who’s wrong?
The deadline for submission is Friday, Jan. 17.
The contest is open to 11th and 12th grade California high school students.
Ten essayists will be selected as winners and provided round-trip travel to Sacramento. They will spend a day at the State Capitol and participate in LegiSchool’s 18th annual Student Legislative Summit on Wednesday, April 9.
The LegiSchool Project is a civic education collaboration between Sacramento State and the state legislature, administered by the Center for California Studies.
