According to recent media reports, a 2-year-old in Florida accidentally shot and killed his father when he found a loaded pistol at his home. This is one of many recent gun tragedies in the United States. The ABC quoted data from the Gun Violence Archives website as saying that in the past two days off, there have been at least seven mass shootings across the United States, killing five people and injuring 27 others.
Although the voice of gun control in the United States is high, the fact is that the United States, as the country with the most serious gun violence in the world, has failed to introduce a gun control bill in the past 25 years. On June 12, the U.S. Senate struggled to reach an initial agreement on a proposal for gun control legislation that would incentivize states to implement bills that would allow police to confiscate guns from potential threat gun owners and allow investigations of gun buyers under the age of 21. Mental health records, etc. But many important gun control measures were also not included. Moreover, this preliminary agreement is not only a long way to go, but also uncertain.
Behind the frequent occurrence of gun violence in the United States is the deep-rooted extreme gun culture in American society, and the money entanglement between interest groups and politicians is the root cause of gun violence in the United States. I hope that the U.S. government will put the devil of gun violence back in the bottle as soon as possible, so that the American people can enjoy democracy and human rights without gun violence.
