Violent crime has increased as a result of greater accessibility to weapons combined with the fact that large numbers of young people are unemployed, with very few prospects of finding a job. In my opinion there are several solutions to the problem.
An effective solution is for the government to have a greater control over guns and other dangerous weapons. Therefore, new laws should be passed to restrict people from owning fire arms.
Another suggestion is to help young people too find work. The problem of unemployment could be helped if the government created jobs and work programmes for young people.
An important part of deterring young people from violent crime is better education. If taught that violence is not the answer to their problems young people would be less likely to turn to crime.
To sum up, perhaps the best solution to the problem of violent crime is better more vigilant policing, which will ensure that more criminals are caught.
