These days, it has become so familiar to hear of mass shootings in America. This is so serious such that it is happening almost every day. Sadly, this is just one of the many distressing facts concerning the gun violence issues in America. Everybody should come to terms with this reality. Below are a few of these facts to help you understand the severity of these issues. Many people believe that the mass shootings that we see reported nationwide are the separate gun violence incidents that happen to the children.
The truth is, there are more than a thousand children who die each year through someone with a gun. Sadly, these murders are committed by people who are well known to the right at their homes. They are often associated with domestic violence. Studies have also shown that among the common causes of teenage and children deaths in America, guns come at number two. Before committing the shooting act, many of these shooters have already shown some warning signs. They usually do this by posting some aggressive or violent messages on social media.
They will even say about the shooting that about to happen to the people that are close to them. Psychological distress, being violent and angry are also other signs that they show. After the shooting, that is when many people came out reporting having seen these signs in them but did not think they could do something like that. Studies says that death is usually the typical reaction in many of these shooters. Many of these shooters start or end their violent rampage by killing their family members.
Studies have also shown that a majority of the guns that are used in mass shootings are acquired legally. Some of these shooters were denied ownership of guns at some point according to studies. Surprisingly, the fires are committed by the use of top capacity guns. This results in many deaths and injuries than it would have been with a normal weapon. There is a role that you can play to ensure that you are secure together with the people that are close to you.
For an instant, ensure that the gun you own is always well secured. Getting a trigger lock for your gun will also play a significant role in becoming responsible for it. Shooter drills should also be performed regularly in schools for everyone. The schools should also do more to ensure that it is impossible for these shooters to gain access into the school. This is intended to raise awareness regarding the seriousness of the mass shootings in America, but not to make you live in fear.
