School shootings ravish the country
There has been mind boggling 18 school shootings. School shootings are sickening and need to be stopped. It isn't a tremendous deal until it happens to us. Mobile, Alabama, Denison,Texas; and Parkland, Florida, just to name a few. 32 injuries and 22 deaths have occurred from these atrocious and fatal choices done by mentally ill citizens who look normal from the perspective of outsiders.
`Shootings are vile; the human who commits the horrific act is even more horrid.
According to research, studies found that 18 percent of people have a mental illness, which makes them just as likely to commit violent acts as anyone else. But when you look at all school shootings, almost all of the perpetrators have a trace of a mental illness. And in most; if not all cases, the shooters have a obsession with guns and killing.
As a society we need to stand up to gun violence. Not just in our schools but everywhere. Protest, walk-outs, and speeches are just a few minor ways that citizens can help prevent gun violence around America. There has already been three nation wide walk-outs since February 14th. The next one is March 14th. People should participate in non violent protests, but they must know why they’re protesting, and what they are protesting for. Most of the protests in the last week were due to government having a more strict law or ban on gun control. Which is understandable due to how easy and accessible it is to get your hands on any type of gun.
Most of the time, the shooters don’t even have a actual reason to do this violent act. They are just terrible, mentally ill people who don't know how to control themselves. They are not just lone wolves that are awkward, but mor just being enmeshed in social situations.
School shootings are atrocious and as humans we need to have a game plan on how to prevent them. And without a plan and without help our schools will just keep getting demolished and destroyed.
