There is a medical theory that a person cannot be cured if he is not first diagnosed with the disease.
This is exactly what is happening in the American community with guns. Instead of admitting the problem, there is always another culprit. Salvador Ramos, 18, an AR-15-military-style rifle used by 19 dead children and two teachers at Uvalde (Texas) Elementary School, reaches the threshold of denial when considered. They say.
Three days after the massacre, in a four-hour drive in Houston, the National Rifle Association (NRA) opened its annual exhibition. “The AR-15 is not an attack weapon,” said Joe Weil, one of the participants. “They do not even explain the truth to the press. It’s not an attack weapon, it’s semi-automatic and you have to pull the trigger every time, “he clarified. What is its deadly ability?
This approach, which does not want to see the reality recognized by NRA and majority Republican politicians, is the complete opposite of what Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced in Ottawa on Monday.
Trudeau cites repeated assassinations in the United States in order to act decisively and quickly
Most owners of military-style assault rifles are forced to hand over their guns to the government through a legal withdrawal scheme introduced on the same day. The move would further strengthen existing arms control in the country.
“As a government and a community we have a responsibility to act to prevent further suffering,” Trudeau emphasized in a general statement, in which he further advanced. This is because the Canadian executive also announced the introduction of new regulations prohibiting the sale, purchase, import or exchange of handguns of handguns.
“We are going to limit the number of guns in this country,” he said in a statement.
In the United States, which has about 400 million weapons under the direct (“original”) interpretation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution, these profound decisions will almost certainly be a declaration of war in the United States (seizure is a verb feared by armed citizens). As if no time had passed since the eighteenth century. The pistol is the most popular weapon in the United States.
The rules for the sale of small arms and the proposal for assault weapons are Trudeau’s latest attempts at regulation. In this way, it responds to the tragedy caused by a gunman who killed 22 people in the countryside of Nova Scotia in 2020, the worst such incident in Canadian history. The bill is expected to get the approval of legislators.
“If we do not act decisively and quickly, we will have to look at the country south of the border to understand that things will get worse and worse and that it will be very difficult to deal with,” he added.
These words show that tragedies like Wolde do nothing but tarnish America’s image. Even China, which is not a mirror of human rights, has condemned the United Nations (UN) for killing children in schools.
Ten days before the Texan school, 18-year-old white supremacist Beyton Gentron used an AR-15 to kill ten people at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York.
The United States has already banned the sale of assault weapons. It was approved in 1994 and expired in 2004. It was not renewed after the 9/11 attacks due to military ambitions. Statistics show that the end of the ban prompted the killings.
