(Kutner) From reading the above statements, this leads me and other American to believe that media plays a larger role is mass shootings than once believed. Of course, we need coverage, but reporters should use caution when reporting because releasing unconfirmed reports can re-traumatize survivors and make innocent people become
Martin Luther King Jr and Senator Robert F. Kennedy which led to the creation of the Gun Control Act in 1968. Furthermore, there have recently been some mass shooting incidents that have brought about huge debates on the issue of gun control. 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 can also prevent students from shooting up schools. The enforcement of stricter gun control laws would be extremely beneficial for the safety of the people in the United States.
More needs to be done to establish an effective way to create stricter gun laws to help reduce violence. Guns have been the weapon of decision for probably the most severe massacres on American soil. Since early history, firearms have been utilized mainly for militia and defense purposes. However, the development of new gun technology has made guns more accessible and deadly. In spite of the fact that the second amendment gives the right to bear, firearms should be controlled and checked by the government since weapons have contributed to a lot of killings in America and will increase crime rates.
Consistently, guns have been misused by the citizens there should be law where everyone can keep the rights to firearm but still safe for others. Political and federal needs to come together and agree to set laws and rules on gun control. In today 's news, we have watched mass events occur and don 't have full information, but sadly it was used by guns. In other words, many issues involve guns, such as racisms, safety, mental illness, and not enough knowledge on gun rights. However, gun control is only a concern when some mass shootings happens such as: school shootings, airports, clubs, hotels, churches, malls, etc.
However, it is not to be said that the mics would alone work to capture rebels, but instead increase chances of said rebels being incarcerated. Julia is caught by the telescreens eventually, after all, and so it would only be sooner or later that rebels would be captured. In conclusion, by using telescreens and mics to monitor the people, the government is able to effectively prevent them from engaging in revolutionary actions and getting away with it, thus spreading a fear to take action among the people. Yet another potent example of fear to instill paranoia by Big Brother is the use of police. One such occurrence lies on the integration of children into Oceania’s “police” force, as in they would be used to spy on their very own family members.
We should raise gun restrictions rather than adding more guns because lives are being lost, guns only bring harm, and because we have seen the success of other nations who have raised restrictions. Guns violence has been on the headlines due to the recent mass shootings, this is because precious lives are being lost. Children, adults, and innocent people are being hurt. Not everyone that owns a gun wants to cause a mass shooting, but the
In other words, illicit trade of firearms have cause a menace to society. Hence, in order to stop gun smuggling, the government should set up a better strategies of enforcement in the armed forces to combat illegal possession and carrying of firearms. This application have been applied in America and Colombia cities. They enforce gun detection patrols in high-crime areas, enhanced surveillance of probationers and parolees, weapon reporting hotlines, consent searches, and other similar tactics. As a result, it produce a positive outcome as gun carrying have reduce firearm homicides from 10% to 15% in Colombian studies while American studies
Positive Impact of Guns In America Americans have the privilege and the right to purchase and own personal firearms for the means of self defense. Some citizens, however, exploit this right for the sole purpose of harming those around them. Mass shootings are some of the most common and terrifying events that can happen to someone in America today. Despite all the harm that guns cause, they should not be banned because they also have many positive effects for the American people that we would not want to lose. One reason to keep guns in the hands of the people is fairly simple, but its impact is highly underestimated: guns stop criminals and in some cases prevent the crime before it even begins.
The presence of a gun makes an act of domestic violence much more likely to end in death. We need to ensure that college are a sanctuary untainted by gun violence. We believe gun do not make place safer people do. Students can be protected in campus in some other ways than being allow to carry gun. College should have more police officer to keep things safe.
The reason why I believe in this is because there has been so many attacks with guns that are just devastating. Families, friends and community’s are getting torn apart because of some of these attacks. With guns we can actually do something about them, we can ban them unlike cars and airplanes. We cannot ban cars or airplanes because they are used millions of times a day but, do people really need to use a gun everyday? With guns people can injure other people in matters of seconds and people can’t do anything about it but with cars people can react in time and move out of the way.
Everyone wants to know an answer to how people can stop mass shootings and there are many things that can be changed to help stop these senseless killings from happing in the future. Some ways of stopping these mass shootings would be trained and armed citizens, by keeping ammunition in the hands of citizens for their protection and making stricter background checks. It is a proven fact that a citizen armed and trained can be effective in a hostile situation whether it is robbery, home invasion or in a store during an argument. An armed and trained citizen would stop many of the mass shootings that happen; for instance, the night club shooting in Florida that happened in 2016. This was a targeted place by the shooter that he had scoped out
"In essence, Moore suggests that the media creates an atmosphere of terror by constantly putting the American people on notice of various threats." (Robbers, 83) Gun ownership, violent history, ethnical diversity, and others reasons are also analyzed throughout Bowling for Columbine in order to be proven as false. The documentary explains why America is prone to gun related deaths, and attempts to persuade the viewer to believe that journalistic media is to blame. "Seeking to explain the fear and paranoia that lead American to arm themselves, Moore casts a wide net, but he avoids some easy targets. Moore dismissed the notion that violent video games play a major role, nothing the popularity of such games in such nations as
It seems American media has tried to justify many mass shootings, to mental health. It is in the way our society ties these connections that it shows not only our politics, biases, and blind spots but also what it does for those troubled individuals, that acts alone (Metzl, "Mental Illness, Mass Shootings, and the Politics of American Firearms"). It is hard to turn on a news and not hear about the topic of guns, with multiple mass shooting and the push for gun control, mental health is frivolously thrown around for political gain. When people associate extreme violence with mental health and read about murder trials defendants "not guilty by reason of insanity” it is understandable people do not want to be associated with this image. It
Open carryment should be legal for all the people because they need to protect themselves from the other shooter near them so open carryment is helpful for other people .”Open carry advocates seek to normalize the carrying of firearms in public places and often use open carrying to protest what they see as unjust state firearms laws. While members of the open carry movement argue that they are just “exercising their rights,” The open carrying of firearms intimidates the public, wastes law enforcement resources, and creates opportunities for injury and death due to the accidental or intentional use of firearms”. (open carry summary). Open carrying poses particular challenges for law enforcement officers who must respond to 911 calls from concerned citizens about people carrying guns in public, carrying a gun in public aint harmful but it can be if they look suspicious but other than that people shouldn 't worry about a shooting in the public. Open carry advocates create a
Within each of these issues there are those who want more gun control legislation and those who want less. Therefore, it could be said that it has come a time for change in our gun legislation to make obtaining a gun harder for criminals and the mentally ill. Whether it be through public or private parties. Although gun control in America might seem to be out of control, it 's a matter of gun ownership and gun rights that needs to be reformed into a better set of laws and limitations. Such laws and limitations that would better regulate who can buy or own a gun.
