Preventing Mass Shootings
January 1st – May 25th 2022 there has 213mass shooting, more than 300 people killed.
People are killing each other like never before. Couple that with the fact people are willing to take the lives of as many people as possible.What we are witnessing has never been witnessed before in history. 671 mass shootings, over 692 people killed and another 2732 people who were shot and suffered life altering injuries from Jan 1, 2021 thru Dec 16, 2021. This is Alarming
Guns and mental health just don’t mix . Thousands of young men are loosing theirs lives to gun violence and the prison system. Nobody wins, Family’s our ruined, friendships are destroyed. More and more people are feeling the need to become gun owners which will in the long term negatively effect communities and erase any chances of us living in harmony with one another. The American government is the worlds largest seller of weapons. We manufacture and sale more guns than any other nation on the face of the earth. We spend 10x more money on our Military than any other country on earth. Americans loves to boast about our military strength and what we are capable to do to people that might be a thereat to the interest of U.S.A.That mindset has trickled down to the average American. People are using weapons to resolve issues that can and should be easily resolved peacefully.
People are using violence as a means of solving issues, that can easily be resolved peacefully. These act’s of violence are taking place in homes, schools, places of worship, places we work, fitness centers, theaters, places we shop and other places we entertain ourselves, negatively affecting people from all different backgrounds. The increase in gun violence should be viewed as a life-and-death warning. Most of us are wondering, where is the next one gonna take place.
What are we doing to make people, not wanna kill others?
If we really want to prevent these acts of violence from happening we need to stop spending more money on police. larger police presence does not make neighborhoods safer. In Chicago’s Urban neighborhoods police are in their cars posted on almost every corner. The weekend of August 3, 2019, seven people were killed and forty-six were wounded. No arrest was made. One Police Tweeted out the audio of gunfire that could be heard in close proximity. With over 5,000 gun manufactures in the U.S.A, purchasing weapons legally or illegally is very easy.
Mass Shootings are globally recognized as acts of evil.
Well, what is Evil?
Evil is the absence of good, and the remedy for an “absence” is a “presence”. Evil is an absence and, therefore, it cannot be healed with an absence. Hating evil or, one that is engaged in evil, you contribute to the absence of good and not to its presence. The presence of good scientifically rids evil. An evil person can be arrested, but can evil be arrested? An evil group can be imprisoned, but can evil be imprisoned? A compassionate heart is scientifically proven to be more effective against evil than an army. An Army can engage another army, but it cannot engage evil. A compassionate heart can engage evil directly – it can bring good where there is no good.
