This was one of the worst school shootings. The two shooters entered the school with bombs and guns.
Gun control has been a national issue for decades, if not centuries. The founding fathers created the Second Amendment that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. This amendment was passed as part of the Bill of Rights and simply recognizing something that has existed or will continue to exist in the future. It was also another check on the government, if the people had no weapons to rebel against them, the government can oppress them easily and would make it easier for the government to assemble militia in a time of war. This Second Amendment doesn’t also mean that the people can’t have some measure of control in these extremely dangerous weapons.
Even though no one knew what was going on in Gang Lu head, there is still a general idea that he did this shooting out of guilt. He felt guilty because he disappointed his sister. When someone is in a bad mental state of mind like Gang Lu, they tend to go off their emotions rather than thinking clearly. When the gunman finally pulls the trigger, he not only has to live with the guilt that he killed someone, but he also has to live with the pain that he will cause to his family as well as the decease’s. For example, when a shooting happens whether if it’s at a work place, school, or even at home there is always an outcome that affects everyone around them.
It's a tough thing, for sure, but you got to cut out that staring”(O’Brien 120). Just though the imagery that we receive from O’Brien we can see that Tim was very ashamed of his actions and the silence that overtook him.

In Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson concludes “the opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice,” and by this he means that when there is no justice, most people will live in poverty, despair, and fear. Despair is the complete loss of all hope, and each of these characters felt that feeling. Bryan Stevenson was stopped and searched by the police, and he was full of fear because one officer had pulled a gun on him. Fear, Police rely on fear to break the law and do as they wish, because they know a majority of people are scared to go against the police. In chapter 3, Walter McMillian was in jail awaiting his trial and eventual execution, this alone drove him into a pit of despair.
Hazel said to George, “ Take the handicapped off, it 's only here so that you can relax.” George said, “If that how it was, we 're all going back to judging and comparing.” Vonnegut’s thoughts on individualism are that being individual and acting a way that is unique doesn 't fit into our society and won 't be accepted. In the story, a “rebel” decided to take of his handicapped, and to become different and be free in how he is but he was brought down and shot dead by a officer.
It was so bad that even his children were scared of him. This quote shows that he can be unsympathetic towards his wives and children because instead of listening to them he chose to act out. They feel as if they have to be very careful of what they say because there might be a chance that he will hurt them. In conclusion Okonkwo overall is an unsympathetic person, However at time he could be sympathetic.
Truthfulness is hard to come by. By all means, when an officer wears a body camera, it can remove all doubt about the events leading up to and including an apprehension or shooting. We are so tired of listening to stories that are not true. We are so tired of listening to people lie just to stop themselves from being arrested, including having innocent lives being taken away. We should not be living in a society where we are afraid of our “defenders”.
Parents of the victims that were shot made a nonprofit group called “Sandy Hook Promise” that aims to protect children from gun violence. They also made a film called “What They Left Behind.” 13 states have cut mental health funding. Connecticut has adopted some of the most restrictive gun polices in the country. It is meant to keep guns and other weapons out of the hands of mentally ill people.
Finally to summarize my learnings from the course HCA 6280, I want to mention the top five ethical issues that are facing the future of health care industry. First, managers are challenged to create a balance between the quality and efficiency. Due to the fact that there is no consistent framework to measure efficiency, this concept has remained vague and needs more literature research. Second, the disparity in access to care is the biggest dilemma of the U.S. health care system. Third, Due to the increase in the number of baby boomers more healthcare professionals are needed than before to provide coordinated care for chronic diseases.
Now as a country we face a near epidemic of mass public shootings at a place that is supposed to be safe for children. After Sandy Hook, the issue became more urgent and the country took charge. New policies, security rises, and lockdown procedures are what saves kids now nearly 4 years since the Sandy Hook mass shooting. In the wake of a tragedy, the country rose to make everyday a safer one. Debates about gun control are still being argued in the White House, and once a changed is made perhaps the numbers of those lost due to gun violence will go down including those lives of children.
Approximately half of the total prison population struggles with mental illness. Over the last few decades, mental health facilities have been shut down and more prisons have been built, nationwide. There are some interventions intended to improve the health of inmates, but there aren’t any nationwide programs. People with severe mental health problems have trouble with becoming productive members of society once they are released from prison, and they are more likely to be arrested again. People with mental illness can receive medication while in prison, if the prison they’re in has the resources to provide care.
Correspondingly, prioritizing rehabilitation programs in American prison systems would greatly reduce the recidivism rate because of the mental health epidemic in these correctional facilities. Today, somewhere between 15 and 20 percent of people in prison are mentally ill, according to U.S. Department of Justice estimates. "Prisons have really become, in many ways, the de facto mental health hospitals," says former prison psychologist Thomas Fagan, PhD. " But prisons weren't built to deal with mentally ill people; they were built to deal with criminals doing time. "
