Unfortunately, it seems over the past few weeks mass shooting headlines have become abundant. What is the reason? To be honest, I can understand if it’s down to you and me, and I’m acting in self-defense, if something happens I was fighting for my life. These shootings? killing innocent people, wounding by standards, and committing suicide after this type of behavior is a mental health nightmare.
Some of the shootings we see maybe at a spur of the moment, but the majority of these mass shootings stem from what the individual’s past looks like. Over the weekend in Austin, Texas, and Kenosha County, Wisconsin mass shootings have left several dead.
Texas Shooting Breakdown
The man responsible for the shootings in Texas has been identified as a former sheriff’s office detective. Authorities in Wisconsin have arrested a person of interest, but the shooter remains at large. How do we stop mentally unstable people from getting guns/weapons in their hands? Seems to be a huge issue we need to solve sooner than later.
