America's gun culture The Second Amendment to the US Constitution (1789) says: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. ● ● ● ● Role of guns is the weirdest aspect of US society from the German point of view For Americans it's a fundamental civil right, represent American identity For others the increasing number of gun deaths matter Years of debates about gun control, one of the most controversial topics ✰ (Cartoon relates to the current problem of using guns in the US) Never ending debate, question whether stricter laws are needed or not ● Connection to the American dream and spirit Every US citizen can be confident and self-determined The first people who came to the US needed to protect themselves from wild animals and other people, faming and hunting were the most common way of sustaining a family Since possessing a gun was needed in the beginning of the Nation, it became part of the national identity, guns are there to protect their rights and freedom About four in ten US adults say they live in a gun-owning household Most gun owners cite protection as a major reason for owning a gun About three quarters of gun owners say owning a gun is essential to their freedom Gun show loophole is a political term in the United States referring to the sale of firearms by private sellers, including those done at gun shows, that do not require a federal background check of the buyer. FFL: Federal Firearm License O O Not every individual providing the gun in a transfer requires an FFL Only individuals whose principal motive is to make profit via gun sell need it This potentially enables guns to fall in hands of users who otherwise might no be allowed to own a firearm -> “guns as gift" Purchase can occur without background check and without breaking the law Gun regulation on federal level Being conditioned by the media leads to an increasing need for protection ● If the US could reduce gun deaths by one third, 10.000 lives could be saved annually About 80 people die of a gun shot in the US every day, most of them aren't registered Gun control: laws that restrict the sale and use of firearms NRA (National Rifle Association): powerful lobby, campaigns against all forms of gun control in the US, argues that more guns make the country safer, influence members of Congress on gun policy Well-known shootings in the past O Columbine, Colorado, 13 killed Charleston, South Caroline, 9 killed O Orlando, Florida, 49 killed Media and film industry have a responsibility in regard to the portrayal of violence Media as fourth pillar of democracy Pro guns Owning a gun is not only a right, also a duty and responsibility to protect family, own life and your property -> irresponsible not to have a gun Self-defence, you feel safe American tradition Almost no black market for guns Not as many robberies as in countries where guns aren't allowed Most gun related deaths in the US are from suicides and not from homicides Guns don't kill, people do. We need to concentrate on the values and morals first and on the role the media is playing in glorifying violence. And the lack of respect for the laws. You cant always rely on police to protect you Guns are fun, sport Contra guns in almost every mass shooting is a legal purchased gun involved - - - If everyone has a gun, everyone is able to hurt or even kill someone, even by accident Private sales/gift of guns don't require a background check and therefore, even people with mental issues can easily obtain a gun If there were no guns, the rate of accidental injuries or mass shooting would probably reduce More than 110 mass shootings in the US since 1982 Most citizens are not trained to confront armed criminals with their guns Police respond to armed crime very quickly Too much gun crime, too many misused guns to harm oneself or others Gang crime with gangs 2nd Amendment isn't modern, reality is a different one, society and life style has changed significantly Guns are now deadlier than they used to be, other weapons could be used Not needed to protect rights, participation in politics should protect your rights Guns don't make fear go away
