How long will it be repeated?
Although small this time, two people were killed by guns again. A student fired at a campus at a university in North Carolina in the United States, three of the four injured were seriously injured, and two more died. One person who lost his life did not choose to escape to the student and student suspects, but as a result he was shot at a close distance as a result. At that time, he was tackled against the suspect, but he was helped to be arrested.
Even if tragedy is repeated, it is the mainstream America that is the logic that you have to have a gun to prevent tragedy from happening. The idea may not be wrong, but it is this as a result. I think that it is the history and culture of this country itself.
Even though it is a hegemony country, does it mean that it is still about 250 years old since its founding?
I do not intend to deny or hate the United States, but I would like to say that this is the dark side of American reality. Former President Obama also tried to control something, but could not finish it. It turns out that even with the president of the state, controlling the gun is not viable. By the way, President Trump is in a position against gun control.
A common argument is "Is the gun thing bad?" Or "Who is the person with the gun bad?"
In my opinion, I must first recognize that the tool called a gun is made for the purpose of killing living things. I think it will be asked how to handle it. Is it to protect oneself? Is it to protect someone? Or is it just to take a life?
This means that depending on the person with the gun, the gun can be good or evil depending on the way of thinking. Although a kitchen knife is a tool that can kill people, it is not a tool intended to kill people, but it is treated as good or bad in the end.
As I realized it, I got philosophical, so I'm going to get here. (Lol)
I think the end is a problem of values. I can understand the idea of having a gun for the self-defense of some Americans, but I still feel that the civilians need to be strict about having weapons.
Even so, it's a shame every time I see such an incident.
The above is my personal impression of being Japanese. And the above used google translation.
