As for suicide rates, there have been 21,175 firearm suicides, almost all being comitted with a household gun or a relative's gun. Not only that, but firearm suicide is one of the most common ways of suicide across the United States. Even more, data from 2012 showed that 64% of gun deaths were suicides, different than the 2006 data that showed the decrease (57%). However, gun control is not able to decrease firearm suicide. If gun control were to be stricter, there still wouldn't be any control over a persons decisions, unless firearms would be completly out of reach for citizens.
Ice and cold also represent isolation and seclusion which occurred very often throughout the story. The reason ice and cold represent instability and inhumane activities is because Victor first created the monster in a very cold, icy place and also in the season of winter. Ice and cold also represent lack of love and affection which was in the case of the monster. The second the monster came to life Victor is filled with the horror at what he had done. “How can I...black lips.” This shows Victor realizing the inhumane activity he has done and how mentally unstable he has become.
It also stereotypes the entire population of people living with a mental disability. (Metzl, MacLeish) Not every person with a mental illness desires to shoot up a school or public place. More research and studies need to be done to understand its correlation with violence like mass shootings. A part of the problem that has more controversy, but more evidence is America’s attitude and lifestyle regarding guns. The US has 4.4 percent of the world’s population, but almost half of the civilian-owned guns around the world (Vox).
33,000 people are killed in gun related incidents, in United States of America alone every year. This is a very staggering statistic knowing that the U.S. is only one country out of the 195 countries in the world today. This is due to several reasons. Shootings are becoming more and more common, guns are getting easier and easier to find, but most of all, the second amendment has reigned supreme in gun laws ever since the founding of America in 1776. Some believe that this is a terrible amendment to have our country live by, this group supports enforcing gun laws or even abolishing guns all together.
However, the winter at Valley Forge was harsh with the cold seeping into their poorly built shelters and the little amount of supplies they had was not enough to keep everyone alive and healthy. Much of the time, soldiers were dying not from the honor of fighting, but by choosing to remain fighting after their enlistment and dying from illnesses. The soldiers at Valley Forge
“The first six months of 2017 America saw 174 mass shootings”, (where 4 or more people were killed), according to CQ researcher, a trusted database.These mass shootings killed innocent people that wouldn 't have died otherwise. More secure gun restrictions would have spared all these people their lives. Stricter gun control would equivalent in a lower death rate and less of a threat to your loved ones, as shown by other first world countries. The largest effect of not having gun control is the sizeable and growing number of deaths per year. The number of deaths in America involving guns have skyrocketed each year.
Harry, a writer, who hasn’t written much, finds himself dealing with a deadly infection close to the mountains of Kilimanjaro. The time when he was suffering from an infection that caused him gangrene was the only time he was aware of his existence. While he starts to be aware that death is coming based on the vultures and hyenas that were circling around his camp, he reflects back to his memories. The same memories he starts regretting not to write. Most of those flashbacks involved snow and that’s what drives him closer to believing that this is where it all ends, close to the Snows of Kilimanjaro.
The government’s purpose of effacing colors, differences and feelings is to avoid discrimination, prejudice, conflicts and to make life easier, less stressful as it was indicated by Jonas: "Climate Control. Snow made growing food difficult, limited the agricultural periods. And unpredictable weather made transportation almost impossible at times. It wasn 't a practical thing, so it became obsolete when we went to Sameness (p.84).” Secondly; while Hunger Games focuses on the survival, The Giver focuses on the importance of memory and past. To survive in a harsh environment such as Panem, ability to assess risk and make decisions based on possible consequences is needed.
I'm going to be talking about John Colter and Tom Murphy's disadvantages and advantages when they were out exploring. And how hard it must have been on both of them to go out in the freezing cold, by themselves. They had to take care of themselves. It was a cold night up in Yellow Stone, when John Colter was walking around out there all by himself in the freezing cold, he even had to build his own shelter which was probably hard, so when John Colter finally had found such a good spot to put his shelter. He started building it he had a tarp and he said you have to tie the knights not too tight because it's cold out and you don’t want to sit there trying to untie knots but you have to tie it to a sturdy tree branch or a big stick that has fallen from a tree.
When it comes to mass shooting, the United States has the most. There are more public mass shootings in the United States than in any other country in the world, according to a study by the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health. Mass shootings are defined for the study as having four or more victims and it doesn’t include gang killings or slayings that involve the death of multiple family members.
