The Assignment: In an argumentative essay of 2,000 words or more, address the following prompt. This essay should feature a well-developed thesis and appropriate evidence to support your claims. You must engage and cite at least one academic article from the DVC Library’s database and three outside nonfiction articles. Be sure to provide thorough analysis of all quotes and examples, and include your own argument based on your perspective on the topic. NOTE: Your argument should include your stance on the topic, and what you think should be done about the issue. The Prompt: Pick an ongoing or recent social issue, political event, or newsworthy situation to focus on. Provide some context for this issue. Describe the situation, who is affected, and why it is occurring. Describe the different perspectives or stances on this topic. Why do people feel the way they do? What is your stance? Use examples from articles and your own experiences, observations, or perspective to support your claims. Please do not use the same topic you used for Essay #1 or 2. Research: At least one article must be academic in nature, and must come from the DVC Library’s databases (Links to an external site.). I recommend EBSCO and JSTOR, but you are free to use others. The other three outside sources can be any nonfiction essays of your choice. You may choose to use news articles, personal essays, research essays, academic articles from the DVC Library database, or any combination that relates to your topic. The outside essays may bring a new perspective on the topic, present a counter-argument to the assigned text(s), or provide an example that supports your claims. If you choose to cite news articles, your sources should be legitimate news outlets that adhere to journalistic standards. (Note that this does not mean that the source is unbiased; all writing has some form of bias.) I recommend news sites like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Democracy Now, NPR, BBC, The Nation, The Atlantic, The Guardian, The Economist, etc. (You are not required to use these; they are simply suggestions.) It would be most helpful if your articles are in-depth rather than a few brief paragraphs. You may also use opinion pieces but be sure to be aware of the author’s intention. Formatting: This essay will be in MLA format. This means it will be typed, double-spaced, in 12-point font (I prefer Times New Roman), with page numbers and your last name on each page, and a header on the first page. Your title should be original, and you must include a Works Cited page. Be sure to include in-text citations in the body of the essay. For help with MLA formatting and citations, please see the handouts on Canvas in “Resources for Essays.” Note: Words and phrases that are underlined on this page will be taken into consideration when grading.

My specific request: The topic I want to discuss is “gun violence”, please use the article in the link below, and use specific quotes, and then analyze and respond to the quotes. The remaining three resources are from the websites mentioned above, thank you.http://www.bjreview.com/World/201909/t20190902_800…（from the DVC Library’s database） Requirements: 2000 words
