This phenomenon suggest that the mass shooting events has had a bad effect on the survivors mental health and even made them feel frightened after hearing such news. Actually, many people think that if many people have the guns and these people who have guns are surrounding with them, they may be worried about some bad things happen (Hemenway 1995). If the government decide to control guns more strictly, this decision might directly reduce the chances of the mass shooting issues because gun is the only tool for shooting. Since the mass shooting issues is hopefully
Moorehouse analyzes the societal encounters ordinary civilians have with guns on a daily basis and how one’s action can cost the lives of many. On one hand, gun control does reduce crime to an extent because it reduces the possibility for people to obtain weapons or guns. On the other hand, crime increases gun control because due to the terrible use of guns to inflict crime government systems are forcing stricter gun laws on
These debates emphasize the need to strengthen the gun control laws that are currently in place, which are meant to regulate the buying, selling, and owning of gun. Lastly, even though gun control goes against the right given to individuals by the second amendment, having stricter gun control laws is beneficial for the safety of the nation because gun control can significantly decrease the number of deaths that occur because of mass shootings and gun control
Firing Squad Over Lethal Injection Many people think that inmates who are death row need to be put to death by means of lethal injection. However, there are many reasons why a firing squad should be used instead. It is actually more humane, less costly, and the odds of something going wrong are much less than a lethal injection. The first reason of it being more humane, makes more sense looking deeper into the idea.
Police officers should be well equipped and have the best resources to combat crime. However, the defense equippements given by the state to the police officers should be aligned to the risks that they will face during their work routine. In this vein, not every police officer should carry all sorts of weapon, depending on the cirscumstances of their work, some would have to use weapons that are more or less lethal. Firstly, if every police officer carries a gun in every situation the risk for society can be greater than the benefits.
The Stand Your Ground laws have caused more harm than good. The laws have led to an increase in homicides in Stand Your Ground states, an increase in racial issues throughout the United States, and the broadness of the laws allow people to use them even in circumstances where there is not a threat of imminent danger. Many people in the United States believe that the Stand Your Ground laws are beneficially in the
The Effectiveness of Restorative Justice Proponents of restorative justice contend that it is more likely than retributive justice to reduce the incidence of crime because of its central concern for the safety of victims. The studies have demonstrated that restorative justice can have a reductive effect in certain cases and can change the behaviour of offenders. On the whole, however, there is more evidence that restorative justice is effective in reducing either the frequency or severity of reoffending for juveniles than in the case of adult offenders. Conclusion and
As time progresses there would be more police brutality victims then officers themselves, with untrained officers this may lead to death. Police brutality is although prejudice what’s the real reason why officers do this act. The only real reason they do this is if the victim is acting up or having a reason for a police officer to do the brutality. People may see it as brutality, but officers may see it as getting the job done. This is a big issue going on in this world debating whether or not if it 's police brutality or getting the job done.
A decrease in incidence of gun-related violence has also decreased in the US during the time when the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act was in effect. There are two arguments dominating the gun control issue. The anti-gun control people believes that the problem is with the people not with the guns and imposing heavier sanctions, harsher punishments on criminals, and more armed guards should solve the problem of gun violence. On the other hand, the pro-gun control people argues that the easy accessibility of firearms directly correlates gun-related violence and mass shooting (Lemieux, 2014). Both arguments have its merits, but in dealing with the gun control issue, it is important to put ethics and public health implications into consideration (Boylan,
Benefits of Gun Control There are many reasons why Gun Control should be in existence. One of the biggest reasons for passing gun control laws is that generally, the most violent crimes are committed with guns, mainly assault weapon style guns, therefore it is a good idea to attempt to limit firearms that are not needed in civilian lives. Individuals who have been bullied in the past, have issues with co-workers, as well as people who are not in the right state of mind, etc. may be less likely or able to obtain a weapon to inflict a massive amount of damage on another person or institution. Many people argue that since guns are legalized to begin with, there is an easier chance of a gun falling into the wrong hands and being used for the wrong
Another concern about banning weapons from people with severe mental illness is that the policies cause the population to develop harmful ideas about individuals with severe mental illness (McGinty et al., 2013. Consequently, people with severe mental illness do not go into treatment (McGinty et al., 2013). Misconceptions about severe mental illness are not the only contributors to stigma; labels can also have a large effect on how the general population feels about those with severe mental
The subject of gun control is hotly debated not only by the media and special interest groups but also by law enforcement agencies, and ordinary citizens alike. Some feel that since the Second Amendment was written before the advent of modern firearms that it is outdated. Others believe that it is an inalienable right that must be preserved in order for Americans to remain a free people. The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. ”(archives.gov)
Game-Changing Gunpowder In 850 CE, alchemists who were trying to find a way to live forever accidentally invented gunpowder. This accidental invention has had a major affect on modern day society. Gunpowder is an explosive that fuels many everyday objects.
In today society, all the issues that are happening with gun violence on the TV, the questions that are asked are, “are all the statements against guns facts or opinions.” Are guns truly a danger or is it just an issue blown out of proportion? Violence is one of the leading issues in society. The government claims citizens solve disputes through talking to reach an agreement between each other. However, the truth is that most conflicts end with a weapon being pointed at someone to really get their point across.
Police Brutality In today's society, it is not uncommon for police officer misconduct, including brutality, to gain everyone's attention. When one officer shoots and kills a suspect, that officer is investigated in order to ensure there was no intentions to harm anyone but to try and keep the peace. Intentional harm to citizens is considered police brutality and can escalate into something more serious such as riots and protests. The kind of misconduct that some police take when arresting a suspect cannot be taken lightly to prevent any sort of riots or protests such as those after Rodney King as 50 people were killed and hundreds more were injured (Katel).
