Violence and how we feed oﬀ of it
By: Michael Imparl
Shoo9ngs • The Aurora shoo9ng was in a movie theater during a showing of “ The Dark Knight.” At this massacre, 58 people were injured and 12 more were killed. • Police say the shooter bought a uniform that looked like a S.W.A.T. uniform over the internet. • The shooter was caught by his car without resistance. He planned the aPack for a long 9me before execu9ng it.
How To Prevent Similar Incidents • We can have more gun control laws. • Using assault riﬂes should be illegal because you don’t use them for hun9ng. They were made for killing.
Sandy Hook • Sandy Hook was a school shoo9ng where 26 people were killed including the social worker, the principal and some teachers. The rest of the vic9ms were children. • The shooter, aVer the school was surrounded by police, shot himself in the head. • Many of the children who survived had nightmares about the shoo9ng, asking their parents if the bad man was going to get them.
Crime • Crime is a big problem this na9on faces. • Crime is all over. Every place you go there crime. It feels like there is no escape. • Crime and violence aﬀect many people all over the United States.
My Opinion On Violence • We feed oﬀ of violence. • Violence is a part of our society. • There doesn’t seem to be a way to eliminate violence because the ﬁrst thing some people do to solve a problem is resort to using their ﬁsts, a gun, or a weapon. • Violence begins when someone threatens another. This verbal threat leads to physical violence.
• Jail does not seem to be a threat to some groups that are involved in violent ac9vi9es. • This is a problem because innocent people are ge\ng hurt, even though they are not part of these violent groups. They get caught in the crossﬁre.
On Purchasing Guns • Assault riﬂes should not be allowed on the streets or in any home. They should be illegal to the general public. • I think that in order to buy a gun everyone in your household should have to get a mental stability test. • These measures would help prevent gun violence.
Why does our society need violence?
