Robb Elementary School Texas Shooting: Salvador Ramos isn’t the first crazy person to have committed such a massacre. Nor is this the first school in America, where students who went to study never returned home.

Gun Culture in US:America has once again been shaken by the threat of firing. This time innocent school children became the target. Not only did his grandmother become a victim of the whims of a mad youth (Salvador Ramos), but 19 students studying in a nearby school were also killed. Some children used to study in the fourth grade and some in the seventh grade. In an attempt to save the innocent, two teachers also said goodbye to the world. A total of 23 people were killed (Texas School Shooting). The 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, who created the massacre, was killed by the police. But can we take it as justice? Is it really only a crazy youth responsible for this bloodshed? So the answer is…not at all.

Salvador Ramos is not the first freak who has committed such a massacre. Nor is this the first school in America, where students who went to study never returned home. This pain is often suffered by the citizens of America. The main reason behind this is gun culture in America. The gun hobby among Americans can be understood from the fact that the common people have 100 times more guns than the army.

Buying a gun is easier than buying a vegetable

The situation in America is that it is easier to buy a gun in America than it is to buy vegetables here. According to a survey, on average, 100 Americans have 120.5 guns here. Schools have been targeted in more than nine firing incidents in the last 23 years. In these, 151 people lost their lives. Since 2009, more than 274 shooting incidents have taken place in America. 1536 people died. There are more guns than the population of America.

The US military has about 4.5 million guns, while the police have 1 million guns or rifles. This means that the common people have many times more guns than the army.

After all, why are guns not being controlled?

Why is there no control on guns in America, despite so many incidents happening every year and people taking their lives? The big reason for this is that the gun is a political issue here. The whole country is divided into two camps. One side wants guns to be banned, while the other side says to keep weapons, citing the freedom given in the US Constitution. Alam is that in the survey conducted in 2020, only 52 percent of the people had supported making strict laws regarding guns. 35 per cent said there was no need for it, while 11 per cent were in favor of further dilution of the existing law. Another reason is a strong gun lobby in America. Its name is the National Rifle Association (NRA), which has so much money that it can influence even the US Parliament.
