But, all of that evidence has been debunked, as the letter from Major Russell claiming Lewis had attempted suicide twice, was later proven to not have been written by Russell himself. However, Lewis was murdered, and by more than one person. The two gunshots indicated by the autopsy report, came from two different directions. This reveals that Lewis was killed by two people. It would have been too heavy for Lewis to hold one horse pistol in each hand, pointing in two different directions, according to Exhibit A: Ballistics Test (video).
Also two al-Qaeda suspects were successfully killed in a strike on a truck, according to Boone, only thing was that there was 4 deaths instead of only the 2 that were planned. The other two were the civilian drivers who had been hired to drive the suspects. Jon states, “That means the attack could have been illegal because it “may have been caused disproportionate harm to civilians (Boone).” Also a town in northwestern Pakistan known as Miram Shah, has become a fearful and paranoid place, mainly because it 's dealt with 13 strikes since 2008, says Walsh Declan. “... the strikes in the area mostly occur in densely populated neighborhoods.”
"If we talk about gun control after a mass shooting, it is wrong. However, we can talk about having a lot of guns after a mass shooting"(Jon Stewart). Stewart presents a former Minnesota 's Governor Jesse Ventura view of point about guns controls. Ventura explores his illogical point that many people killed by drunk drivers than people ask the car company to stop making cars. In his response, Stewart comments that "we have to strict blood alcohol limit, raise the drinking age, enforcement penalties for the drunk driver that help bring drunk driving rates down; I don 't know by 2/3 in a few decades".
In the case of Commonwealth v. John E. DuPont (1996), the defendant John DuPont was convicted in February 1997 of guilty, but mentally ill, with a verdict of third-degree murder. DuPont and his defense team had tried repeatedly to persuade the jury that he was legally insane. The definition of legally insane includes that the defendant did not know the nature of the act he or she committed or did not know it to be wrong. After weeks of testimony the jury determined that DuPont was mentally ill, but was legally sane. Meaning the jury felt that beyond a reasonable doubt the DuPont was guilty of murder, although mentally ill, at the commission of the crime.
Williams’s representative (Anon, 2012), it was plausible that suspects broke into the flat through skylight windows as several of the items left by the forensic team was moved (Stanton, 2015). This could have been done to conduct their own investigation or to cover up what truly happened. The investigation terminated with a probable false allegation that he locked himself in the bag either as a form of autoerotic asphyxiation or suicide. Crime Scene Reconstruction (CSR) Case Studies Proving Murder Case 1 A man shot his father using a pistol. The bullet grazed the left forearm and the entry wound was on the left side of the abdomen; there was no exit wound as the bullet was obstructed by the right pelvic bone.
That winter, a hit man “shot Jeremy three times in the back of the head, then once, at close range, in the face” (16). Stillman makes it understandable in her article that the police officers are not executing their rightful task and that the security of criminal informants needs to be
“The combination of alcohol, drugs and guns is a dangerous mix that could lead to additional and more lethal, violence on campus” (Students For Gun-Free Schools, 635). The other issue people are concerned about is how do we know who is capable of killing someone. We all wouldn’t want people who suffer from a mental illness to carry weapons yet alone encouraging them to doing so for any cause. On April 16, 2007 a Virginia Tech student murdered 32 and wounded 17 people on campus. The student had psychological and behavior problems but he was still able to buy a gun (Skorton and Altschuler, 628).
The agony of shedding their last tear while knowing they might not survive? Consequently, seven children and teenagers below the age of 19 are killed with guns in the United States on an average day. Correspondingly, annually 78,815 people get injured because of the usage of guns. In average, 216 people are injured daily because of dangerous firearms. Guns also contribute to mental and psychological trauma, such as Hoplophobia, the fear of firearms, Haemophobia, the phobia of blood, Thanatophobia, the anxiety of death, and plenty more.
This is an interesting case because all of the guns were purchased legally. So this raises a question on whether our legal system is adequate enough to stop purchases like this, or if there is even a way to tighten the laws without infringing on individual rights. A few of the better known shooting are the 1999 shooting in the Columbine High School. Two students opened fire on their peers killing twenty one students. Through investigation, it was determined that these students had planned this attacked for over a year.
"In 1990, handguns were used to kill approximately 48 people in Japan, 8 in Great Britain, 34 in Switzerland, 52 in Canada, 58 in Israel, 42 in West Germany and 10,728 in the United States”. For many years, America has been regarded as one of the world’s most perilous and ferocious countries in the world. The death rate caused by active gun shooters in the US is extraordinary: “since 1968, more Americans have died from gunfire than died in … all the wars of this country 's history”. Hence why public ownership of guns should be abolished in the USA. Can you imagine to what extent the death rate in America has increased by now?
Although, “Gun Control That Actually Works,” is a short piece of text, the reader only gets provided with one idea. The short article is filled with useful information about the acts and laws of guns, however, it never really uses any emotion while explaining the problem.Throughout the years, gun violence has affected millions directly and indirectly. To truly convince the readers of the point Alan was making he should have included pathos in his argument. The article, “End the Gun Epidemic in America,” The Editorial Board, demonstrated the argument with pathos by her first line, “All decent people feel sorrow and righteousness fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California.” Berlow would have hooked his audience more by using more of that logic. More people would have supported his article and the point he was trying to make.
a Bloom A prodigious amount of attention has been drawn to gun crime after many mass shootings in 2015. A mass shooting is defined by the FBI as four or more people shot and/or killed in a single event at the same general time and location (Gun Violence Archive). According to the Mass Shooting Tracker, 371 mass shootings took place in 2015 alone-- leaving 1,387 people wounded and 469 dead. Gun control has become an enduring dispute with many proponents for both sides. Congress needs to find a way to assure that the right to bear arms is protected, but also legally keep guns out of the hands of certain people.
