According to a Wikipedia list, as of October 25, 2022, there have been 582 mass shootings, with 604 individuals killed (including the shooters). A total of 2380 people have been wounded (including the shooters). This year has been a record year for mass shootings in America and it does not seem to be getting any better. Although many attribute shooter motive to serious mental illness, studies have shown personal issues such as a combination of acute life stressors, anger, and nihilism contribute to a shooter’s motive. Gun policies and the criminal justice system, in general, are also factors that play a part in the probability of mass shootings.
Although this news corner doesn’t have anything to do with blockchain technology, it has everything to do with social stability, security, and human nature. It’s unlikely that we’ll ever end all violence in our world, but we should be addressing and studying some of the root causes of violence by educating children about the importance of community safety, gun safety, and human morality. Open Public policy and local education regarding gun control can be tools to help mitigate future tragedies and increase trust in our communities.
