Only In America Are Politicians Accepting Of Mass Shootings

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s time for American politicians to stop blaming mass shootings on mental health and do their job of protecting the people they serve.

According to every pro-gun politician in the United States, all gun violence and mass shootings are unavoided mental health issues. Mental health issues are not synonymous only within the United States; they are global. The only difference is that other nations address the cause of the problem and have reasonable gun laws.

Politicians, mainly Republicans, quickly blame mental health as a cop-out for addressing reasonable gun laws. They do not have the fortitude or will to put people over profit.

American politicians are accountable to the big corporations’ that contribute to their campaigns. Therefore, they do not bite the hand that feeds them, even if it means at the expense of children and their constituents.

It is easier to buy a high-capacity assault rifle in America than purchase alcohol, rent a car or buy cough medicine, get an abortion, or register to vote. There have been over 100 deadly shootings in the past five years and more than 27 alone in 2022.

Too many lives are lost in the name of the Second Amendment, a one-line blurb in the constitution. Over 11,000 proposed amendments to the United States Constitution and 27 ratifications. That means changes are possible if the will is there.

If it weren’t for the sake of the multi-billion-gun manufacturers and gun lobbyists, gun violence in America would be significantly reduced.
School shootings directly result from the lack of adequate mental support and ease of access to guns.

If America enacts reason gun laws, such as those in Japan, Canada, the UK, or New Zealand, mass shootings will not be an acceptable norm. And the government can invest in programs meant to address mental health and prevent mass acts of violence.
