One of the most common cause of death in the United States is considered to be gun homicides, yearly causing as many deaths as car accidents.
There are some cases in which the number of people dying due to this mass shooting is more than the other and hence require more attention. It is surprising that in such a highly developed country, the violence level can be so high.
When compared with other countries around the world, US rank among one of the most extreme countries in Gun Homicides.
In countries like the United Kingdom and Germany, the chances of dying due to a gun homicide are as low as getting hit by a falling object.
The statistics of people dying from gun attack is like three out of a million in these two countries. That is equivalent to the statistics of people dying from agriculture-related accidents in the United States.
The statistics of social death due to gun attack is very high in the US with the death rate as 31 people out of every million.
These statistics include the mass shootings as well as the single-victim shooting.
The most surprising fact about these statistics is that no other developed as well as the rich nation even comes a little bit closer to these social statistics.
The statistics are so high in the US that it has become one of the leading causes of deaths in the US for men between the ages of 15 to 30 years.
The Orlando mass shooting saw approximately 50 people dying in one of the mass gun homicidal attacks.
After the attacks, many politicians are trying to modify the gun laws, but there hasn’t been any significant change. Other countries which have high gun homicidal rate has enforced the law which has destroyed a major portion of the weapon, but the question which arises is that in a social country like US where the right to keep weapons is supported by a majority of people, how can these changes in law be reinforced.
The gun control laws have their own advantages as well as limitations. The major advantage of these laws is that it helps to decrease the deaths due to gun homicides as most of the attack in the past year was done using legally obtained guns.
It can also effectively protect woman and children who are more susceptible to these attacks.
The major drawback of these laws is that it violates the right to keep a weapon for self-defense, which is one of the most basic fundamental right in the US.
There need to be some immediate changes in the laws regarding the gun control in the US and what they need to prevent is the increasing everyday attacks.
1) The major advantage related to gun control is that it helps to decrease the deaths due to gun homicides as most of the attack in the past year was done using legally obtained guns.
2)Stronger and stricter gun control laws will minimize as well as prevent these kinds of social attacks.
3)It can also effectively protect woman and children who are more susceptible to these attacks.
4)Stricter laws will also ensure that proper examination is done about the background of people who own these weapons.
5)Keeping guns legally also helps people in self-defense and decreases the crime rate significantly.
1)It violates the right to keep a weapon for self-defense, which is one of the most basic fundamental right in the US.
2)Gun homicide is a major social problem and issue in US and needs to be controlled.
