Gun violence is a precarious issue in the world over. Incidences relating to gun violence continue to be witnessed in the U.S. despite the federal government’s efforts to ameliorate this situation. Notably, majority of American children die as a result of gun violence. Nearly one out of four children has witnessed to gun shooting while an approximated 20 children are killed by guns every day. It is a fact that US Taxpayer spends billions of U.S dollars to cater for treatment, security precaution among many other services relating to gun violence.
An approximated 2.3 billion is also spent to cater for lifetime medical cover for most firearm victims. Again, majority of Americans agree that gun violence is a major challenge to many. For instance one out of three people admit to seeing someone get shot by a gun. On an average thirty two American are murdered using guns and about forty people treated for gun shots. At the same time, majority of Americans contend to the necessity of a background check before selling firearms. It in this light that the Brady was instituted to bar about people from having easy access to firearms.
Because American citizens suffer greatly as a result of misuse of a gun, the American President adopted four major proposals that he believed could help reduce loss of life. The plan combines executive actions that would see guns not get into wrong hands, ban assaults, and restrict the use of high capacity magazines. Even though this move can be seen as an attempt of striking appropriateness and pertinence in a bid to make schools and the streets safer, the government still needs to do more on tracking and minimizing illegal activities whose rates are uniquely related to the occurrence of gun violence. Essentially, firearm usage should be monitored to improve public safety through registration of firearms in a national database for tracking purposes.
