In America, mass shootings are the order of the day these days. They have become so common such that in nearly every day there is a shooting incident. Unfortunately, it is just another distressing fact about America and the gun violence problem. Everybody should come to terms with this reality. This page provides some facts that can help you to come to terms with how serious these issues are. Many people believe that the mass shootings that we see reported nationwide are the separate gun violence incidents that happen to the children.
The fact is, each year there are more than a thousand children who die as a result of gun violence. Sadly, these murders are committed by people who are well known to the right at their homes. The murders are commonly associated with domestic violence. Studies have shown that guns are the second major killer of children and teenagers in America. Another fact is that there are already some warning signs that a majority of these people who commit mass shootings show before doing it. Some of them will post messages on social media that are violent or threatening.
Others will say something related to the incident to the people that are close to them before it happens. Other signs include: anger, psychological distress, or violence. 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. According to studies a majority of these shooters commit suicide also. Many of these shooters start or end their violent rampage by killing their family members.
According to reviews, a majority of the guns that these mass shooters use are obtained legally. It is also a fact that some of these shooters were denied ownership of a gun at some point. 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 example, it is your responsibility to ensure that this service is always well secured. You can also get a trigger lock for your gun. There should also be regular shooter drills for everybody at schools. They should also do more to ensure that these shooters do gain access to their schools. This is intended to raise awareness regarding the seriousness of the mass shootings in America, but not to make you live in fear.
