  5. 5. 88% of all boys and over 76% of girls surveyed said they shot someone in the past 12 months because they needed money. 
 about 30-40 percent of boys and 15-30 percent of girls reports having committed a serious violent offense by age 17. having to do with gang related activity. A gun in the home is 43 times more likely to be used to kill a family member or friend
or to commit suicide than to defend oneself. Guns are often used in roberies and drug related crimes.

  7. 7. <ul><li>I think this would be a interesting documentary because: </li></ul><ul><li>1. We need to expose this issue to teens that it is time to keep guns out of their hands. </li></ul><ul><li>2.It shows how the desire to have money will make people have bad decisions </li></ul>
