Violence in USA By : Sherman Teo

The recent mass massacre occurred in a school at Newtown, Connecticut. The gunman killed 20 children and six adults, one of which WHOM was his mother. The United States of America does not have a gun law which prevents them from carrying weapons such as guns freely through the country. This article states that the gunman bought two guns which WERE we being legally sold and registered under his mother’s name. The schools in the United States of America do not have a high security and people who carry weapons are allowed to enter the school. On the other hand, the schools in Singapore have higher a security and visitors need to get a visitor’s pass to be able to enter the school premises.
In my opinion, I believe that it is due to too much television’s and it is also due to the fact that children nowadays are spending too much time on games. This is mostly the influence of gaming because I believe that he wanted to have a feel of how it is like to kill someone in reality. I believe that it is also the televisions fault because dramas now are so realistic that people may believe that such an incident CAN really happen.
