Although many of these shootings occur every year, there many steps that can be placed in order to prevent them from occurring in the future. Creating gun laws that provide better background checks on the buyer and family can help lessen the chances of a mentally ill person from obtaining a gun. Spreading awareness of a person with a mental illness-or generally spreading information of the many different mental illness- can also help prevent mass murders such as Sandy Hook from occurring. Finally, researching ways to prevent mental illnesses from forming can help prevent these violent crimes. If the blame is on the illness, why not find ways to cease them from affecting more people?
Murderers pose a potential threat to society, even after they’ve served their time-- Allowing guns back into their hands could end up fatal. There have been many debates on what can legally be done to keep firearms away from individuals diagnosed with mental illness. After many mass shootings committed by individuals diagnosed with mental
There are a lot of misconceptions of gun violence and how it correlates to the mentally ill population. A 2011-2013 survey shows that people believe that gun violence is more likely to occur due to someone who is mentally ill rather than someone having an easy time buying a weapon. One of the first things people think about when the hear the latest mass shooting news is that the perpetrator had to have been someway mentally ill. They take this statement, twist it, and then say that all those who are mentally ill are violent. An article on mental illness and how it correlates to gun violence stated “Only 23 percent had a documented psychiatric history of any kind ― which means 3 out of 4 did not.”
Gun control has decreases the amount of gun violence in the United States. But if you think about it, if there is gun control or not criminals will always find a way to get a gun. The problem is that criminals can get guns. Everyone else can have gun and be fine as long as they know to use it properly and safely. All it takes is a little knowledge in firearms and then people will be smarter about everything.
This is not the only side of the argument though, there are opposers to enforcing gun laws that believe that there are already enough laws for buying guns and what you can do with them. The opposers also believe that we should focus more of our efforts on the mental health of the people instead of the guns they use. The debate on gun control is a very pressing matter. Some believe that the laws on gun control should be stricter, while others believe the laws should be looser for self-defense and hunting.
Anybody of age can go to a gun show or online to purchase any firearm. If background checks, and polygraph test, then we can decrease gun violence. There may also be ways to make guns less dangerous to store. New technology in "smart guns" recognizes the owners ' fingerprints or hand grip or has other features controlled by the owner, so firearms can 't be stolen or accidentally fired by a child. Those guns are not currently mass-produced in the U.S., a recent "60 Minutes" report found, in part because of fears that they might lead to greater gun control.
Mental Health is a bigger issue than guns, and mental health will be regulated and not guns if the authority and the government want killings to stop occurring. Taking away guns will not stop killings with guns. People will find other ways to kill people, because people if they want to kill, will kill. Some argue that the guns need to be taken away because guns take away Innocent people’s lives. However, the real reason people are killed by guns is that of the people using the gun.
Instead of banning or limiting guns, the evidence will show that removing the current restrictions and targeting individuals instead of guns will be a more effective process. The topic of gun control has two polarized opinions. One such opinion targets the individuals responsible for the crime, instead of just the weapons. John Moorhouse and Brent Wanner tackle the issue of gun control in their article “Does Gun Control Reduce Crime Or Does Crime Increase Gun Control”, which was published in 2006 in the twenty-sixth volume of the Cato Journal. These researchers looked at the effects gun control laws had on violent crime and gun violence in the individual states.
There can be a question that can be asked which is, how those sick people are getting the gun and from where they are getting them? That means there are lots of illegal gun sellers in many places who does not require any kind of documents, background check, permit or license. This is the reason, there is still so many people are dying from gun shots. In order to reduce this death 's, first, there should be some changes in the NY Safe Act. First, the mentally people should get free services from the health service.
The use of and the owning of guns is a very hot and debated topic in society today. For many, this is a life and death debate due to the recent and numerous school shootings. These school shootings have caused an outcry for more gun control, specifically in relation to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Despite these calls, increased gun control is not the answer. Most gun owners’ use their guns responsibly and for good purposes.
Someone that is mentally ill or has certain problems like Nikolas Cruz shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun in the first place. This is where it is believed gun control would have a good effect in the long run, if its harder to get a gun then these guns will not make it in the hands of a school shooter. A gun becomes dangerous when it is in the hands of a dangerous unsafe person. It is proven that most U.S. deaths are caused by gun violence.
Strict regulations and limitations have been pursued already and clearly do not suffice. Statics brought to attention by gun control opponents, show that gun control laws have done little to reduce crime rates. Several restrictions have been made on certain guns, considered as overly dangerous, though in the hands of an unstable criminal even a legal hunting gun can be deadly. Countless restrictions have been made, however people have still found ways around them. If people are unstable and determined enough, they will find a gun, regardless of the restrictions or regulations.
Title: Gun Violence As I write this introduction, I am like millions of others watching the tragedy in Louisiana and Alabama caused by hurricane Katrina. A small but important part of the devastation and the challenge is the existence of individuals and groups of citizens from the area mostly impacted by the storm who used guns against their neighbours and those attempting to assist them. In any other industrialised nation, this will never happen because it will eventually cause the level of socialisation to decline due to the issue pertaining citizens getting the ready access towards guns. Most likely, gun violence is categorised as the most highly anticipated violence around the world because it is growing rapidly and causes
The number of incidents of gun violence last year in the United States was about 60,000. In recent years, the number of mass shooting has risen to about one mass shooting per day in the United States. The country is divided with some wanting to reevaluate our gun control laws and either ban or add additional regulations to the purchase of guns. Others say it is our right for Americans to own guns and something the founding fathers considered important to put in the Bill of Rights. The number of firearm sales has risen with the number of mass shooting many Americans question if banning guns or certain guns could help decrease the number of gun violence deaths.
