America’s rising gun violence is posing serious threat to the nation’s socio-economic well-being and going by the current and past reports both, there seems to be no end in sight. Reportedly, US has way more guns as compared to other developed nations and that’s one of the prime reasons for more number of gun crimes. Facts remain that while US has 44% of world’s population, it has almost half of the civilian-owned guns across the globe. With statistics stating around 1,600 mass shootings ever since 2012, which is more than anywhere else in the world, US is an outlier when it comes to gun deaths but not overall crime.
Studies also indicate the states having more guns in total have a higher rate of gun deaths and the prevalence of guns instigates more lethal violence. Where even small episodes are resulting in serious gun crime owing to gun availability, due measures must be put in place to control gun violence, such as tighter gun laws and stricter policy implementation. Aside from this, attention must be paid to identifying new mechanisms and advanced software that can be of assistance in resolving this grave issue to certain extent.
