1. Gun violence
Without exaggeration, America stands somewhere high on the list of the most violent countries in the world. According to statistics, in the U.S., there are 20 times more crimes than the world average. While this is beyond sad, a lot of people tend to compare our situation with that of Arabic countries like Iraq, for example. But in reality, even if it doesn’t sound true, even there the murder rate is half as low as here.
Why is this happening? You may ask. Well, most of the killers that were involved in mass shootings or murders procured their guns perfectly legally. Weapons should be bought with only one purpose: to destroy yourself! But because of the laws that are active at this very moment, everybody can purchase a gun. Furthermore, the United States has varying levels of gun violence, but some places, including New Orleans and Detroit, are on par with the world’s most deadly Latin American nations.
