The problems of the world including
famine and drought and poverty,
are not solved because of poor illogical ways of thinking and bureaucracy. People suffer and die far too often because of them. And also, in America because of the right to bear arms.
The inmovability of the American people on the gun control situation is because of words, the American people cling to the right to bear arms, yet the word militia used by many definitions means:
To raise a military force that is raised from the civil population to supplement a regular army in an emergency. Oxford dictionaries.
Militia is part of the organized armed forces of a country liable to call only in emergency. Merriam Webster.
A military force whose members are trained soldiers but who often have other jobs. A military force whose members are trained soldiers but who often have other jobs. Cambridge dictionary.
The eradication of guns from America is being hampered by the lobbying in the United States Congress, power and influence, and the continual referral to the right to bear arms compounds the situation.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”
The security of a free state, of all free states is hampered by the right to bear arms, it increases violence, this would not be case if there were no guns. You would not have the same number of deaths as you do with the right to bear arms. There are many countries around the world who do not have a right to bear arms and deaths are far lower.
This proves how important education is, education in language, and also emotional education. Emotional education and compassion, despite all the religious moral teaching of the world in all the major religions, is not being taught well enough, and also empathy. The lack of empathy and compassion is lacking, materialism far outweighs empathy and compassion. The materialism of the gun companies and their greed exacerbates the numbers of deaths.
In the USA there is a continual process of a shooting, a mass shooting, a protest and then an outpouring of grief, and nothing is learned, because the same cycle happens again and again, and nothing changes. The majority of crime is caused because of gang warfare, and drug dealing, robbery and violence. Gangs in poor neighbourhoods bring fear, the wealthy in wealthy neighbourhoods are targetted because of poverty and the mentality that it is easy to get rich quick by robbing them.
To combat violence, fighting homelessness and drug dealing, and poverty are a good place to start.
If you house every homeless person in a Church, a Mosque, a community hall, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ie allow them to sleep there overnight, then they can be better helped and provided with drug counselling, education, benefits and employment help, and help with permanent housing. Education and classes could be taught for free in all these buildings. This would give people a greater chance to get their lives back on track, thus lowering violence in society.
The drug dealing gangs could be far more easily be targetted and tackled, because they have a tendency to prey on the vulnerable, including the many homeless people who are suffering on the streets in all conditions. Drug dealing gangs are likely to continue targeting people in this overnight accommodation, thus allowing the government to be able to target and tackle the gangs more effectively.
A greater usage of drones would allow for better surveillance, for example using drones with artificial intelligence to recognise
and record the movements of them, the automation and the recording of
drug dealing and an automatic compilation of the evidence, would greatly increase the speed of cases going to court, and be a more effective deterrent.
