Meaning this law may restrict the health service from providing their treatment because people with mental problem can use the guns and kill the innocent people. This may be the reason why the law is against the treatment. From my opinion, these disadvantages are common sense. In one hand, people who are mentally sick are suppose to get treatment in order to reduce the amount of gun death. They use guns and shoot out of their sense and out of control.
Their number one goal is to help their patients no matter what. However, not everyone follows that logic. If a person of color came into the clinic it is generally assumed that they just want drugs. If a Muslim came into a hospital with a gunshot wound it is assumed they are a terrorist so let us just let them die.
Gun control endangers American’s constitutional right to bear arms. Politicians and civilians alike mistakenly think that revoking our constitutional right to keep and bear arms will ensure the end of gun violence in our country. Taking away our guns by criminalizing the purchase or ownership of guns will not keep weapons out of the hands of violent criminals. If we criminalize guns the violent gun-slinging criminals we worry about would continue to purchase them illegally through the black market. Marginalizing our right to bear arms endangers civilians due to the fact that those laws only affect law abiding citizens, rendering them defenseless.
They propose to instead focus on treatment for the mentally ill. That is like saying cars do not kill people, mentally ill people operating them do; so limiting those who drive, where they drive, what they drive and how they drive is pointless. It does not make sense to allow almost anyone to buy assault weapons without restrictions. Everything needs limits, including constitutional rights; and the fix for tragedies does not lie solely in mental health
Having colored people wrongfully accused of a crime just because of the color of their skin can be dangerous to the preservation and promotion of our country. People may get jumpy and shoot a civilian, because racial bias in media has changed their attitude towards a specific race as said hear by Lisa Wade, “Studies of Americans’ unconscious beliefs shows that most people — white and black — think black people are dangerous and both average folks and police are quicker to shoot black than white people” (Wade). Who can we trusted to uphold the law if our law-enforcers kill people unlawfully, because of the color of their skin? How can we fight united against terrorism, global warming, new diseases and viruses, and everything else if we can’t get over a problem that has been in our lives since before this country even became a nation? We can’t stand unified if we can’t even stand to be next to each other without fearing for the safety of your life.
Therefore, in every shooting that occurs mental health is a factor that must be accounted for. However, I do not think sufficient research has been conducted to explain why people reach a state of mind that results in a mass shooting. If people had a better understanding of what goes through a killer’s mind, it's possible a cure could be created. Also, it's important to take into account the lack of mental health services available. Many people suffering from mental illnesses don't seek treatment.
According to a source at Smithsonian“People are more likely to feel safer in their homes if they; or someone that lives with them has a gun”, Having a gun makes you feel like you are ready for anything; it gives your self esteem a boost. Strict gun controls won 't make a big positive change because criminals don 't follow the law so whether you ban guns or not they will have a way to get to one. Like I said earlier if criminals can get to guns easier than your average person it will increase gun related violence. Not making guns available to people will just leave them defenseless in a time of terror.
They arrested [twenty-two] people” (CNN). Rather than a controlled protest which could promote they changes they desire, these acts of civil disobedience only brought negative publicity to their causes. Civil disobedience is one of few effective ways for civilians to bring about adjustment to their government. However, there is a correct way perform disobedient acts. Only movements that are peaceful and composed will gain positive and considerate attention from the government; otherwise, it will be written off as a reckless act which must be
In today society media has to stop covering these mass shooting also using these stereotypical names to describe these shooter. Media has been influencing more shooters across America to do these violent acts. While others might say that the media has to cover these mass shootings. Over the years it has been proved that the media glamorizes these shooters which motivates others to do the same. America need to figure out a way how stop or decrease these shooting and possibly help these “Troublesome” shooters Media has been racially profiling shooters of color thugs or gang member also terrorist, but then portrays shooters of the white race as troubled or mentally ill, which doesn’t really make sense because why isn’t the shooter of color also troubled or mentally ill.
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
Meanwhile, due to the media coverages, mass shooting slowly become a serious threat to the people. Although the media has exaggerated the detail and statistics of the shooting, which make their coverages look more trustworthy, researchers and reporters
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
Although it largely depends upon the specific type, mental illnesses in general can degrade the rationality of a person’s decision-making ability. Since a person diagnosed with a mental illness is unable to properly make cognitive and logical choices, they are more likely to misuse firearms, thus posing a danger to themselves and others. Therefore, we must enact strict regulations that immobilize mentally-ill people from obtaining firearms. Gun regulations may seem repulsive to some people in our country, because for them, guns are the equivalent of freedom and security, and to regulate those firearms may be regarded as an encroachment upon American liberty. However, it is crucial to identify how this fallacy plagues our society; a gun is a gun, it is a weapon designed for the purpose of ending someone’s life.
