He emphasised the latest research has shown that the mass violent media in adolescence creates aggressive behaviour in their future life such as physical attacks or spouse offense. Expressively, Dr Christopher L. Heffner in The Psychological Effects of Violent Media on Children (2003), identified that children are mostly exposed to media because they want to keep distance with adults from the dreadful relation between them and they usually like to react in a harmful conduct towards them. Identically, he supported the exponents who contend that violent media is related to aggressive
According to the statistic guns are held for over 33,000 deaths in the United States. CDC also reports that 11,008 homicides involve a gun. Over half of the suicides cases in America involved a some kind of a gun. Although Americans have the Right To Bear Arms there should be more restrictions on guns because guns are responsible for a lot of deaths across America. The history on the second amendment and gun control is that everyone has the right to bear arms but now it has been getting out of control with the mass shootings and how people can go online and purchase a gun illegally.
The most commonly accepted definition of what a mass shooting is according to the Gun Violence Archive as a mass shooting that “kills four or more people are injured or killed with a gun” (Nass). There have been “at least 15,549 people were killed by guns in the United States in 2017, according to data collected by Gun Violence Archive (GVA), a nonprofit organization that tracks media and law enforcement reports of shootings.”(Nass) Since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school in 2012 “there have been at least 239 school shootings nationwide. In those episodes, 438 people were shot, 138 of whom were killed.”(Patel). This year alone “there have been 17 school shootings in 2018” (Wilson). These mass shooting have divided American politics and political parties for at least the past 5 years.
Violence is a negative effect on media and society because of the learning effect, the desensitized effect, and the fear effect. For example, the violence on television and video games can teach people the actions of the fictional characters in the show or game, and in turn, learn violent behaviors. “Viewers learn the aggressive attitudes and behaviors depicted in the programs they see”(Wartella 3). Considering the fear effect, the next effect violence can create is the desensitization effect. Violence is a negative effect on society and media because violence can cause real emotion, and change the attitudes of many civilians when put in a serious situation where people need help.“Prolonged viewing of media violence can lead to emotional desensitization toward real violence and real victims which may result in callous attitudes and a decreased likelihood that desensitized individuals will take action to help victims when real violence occurs”(Wartella 3).
Guns. Guns are an enormously controversial topic discussed across the world; however, I am going to focus on guns in America specifically. America is in a deadly love affair with firearms despite 32,000 people each year. Losing their life to gun crime for every one person who died due to guns, two more are wounded which can drastically impact someone’s life. I feel that America has a huge influence in the world therefore if they get rid of their right to bare arms, others will soon follow.
When kids are playing video games, they can have effects of bad behavior and they lose their innocence by becoming desensitized. To start off, violent video games contributes to aggressive behaviors in kids. Children learn from influence so when they play video games they learn it is okay to act violent. In an article from TIME it declares that “When asked if it was okay for a boy to strike a peer if that peer said something negative about him, for example, these kids were more likely to say yes” (paragraph 7). This shows that kids are more likely to have bad behavior if they play violent video games by lashing out at classmates and bullying them.
“Every day, 28 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This is one death every 51 minutes,” ("Impaired Driving: Get the Facts | Motor Vehicle Safety | CDC Injury Center"). Drunk driving is the act of operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Drunk driving takes over 10,000 lives annually. It is an exceedingly serious and perilous issue that we face here in the United States, and it should not be taken lightly by the government or the public.
This is the same rate with motor vehicle accidents, showing how prevalent firearm accident is in the U.S. Children are not an exception at this massacre. Another research from the NBC showed that out of more than 12,000 annual gun accidents, about 10% involved Americans aged 18 or younger, of which 756 of them were killed. As everyone have access to firearms, guns became the primary tool even for the criminals to conduct their crimes. In 2011, the UN reported 67% of all homicides in the United States
And incidents like these are hard to forget. 26 people were murdered during their weekly sunday service in a Sutherland Springs church, and 58 people were killed and over 500 were injured during the Las Vegas shooting. According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, which catalogues such incidents, over 520 people were killed this year and 1,870 were injured. I think it is agreed by all that the act of innocent mothers, fathers, and children being shot and killed while going about their daily lives is a heinous act, and that the immense number masacres has put the country in a deplorable state. Republicans and Democrats alike are trying to find an effective solution
