US Gun And Other Violence


In 2021 as of midApril there were 266 multiple shootings in the US. What are some factors?

Violence to Women

There is a culture of violence to women which includes rape and other physical violence. It is abuse of those who are usually not as strong physically, and a belief that women are the property of their husbands or partners. 97% of US murders are done by men.


African Americans per capita are shot much more than whites, Latinos, or Asians. For centuries they were enslaved and since 1863 have been lynched or otherwise executed at rates 3 to 4 times more than whites.

Atty Leonard Finz was one of the first to sue drug companies over antidepressants’ role in causing homicide and suicide. The FDA puts such a warning on bottle labels of Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil and other corticosteroids. Dr Peter Breggin has written countless books and articles on the violence, aggression, anger, irritability, suicide and homicide caused by big pharma which ignores the deaths and injuries as it has eyes only for profits.


We know some are ‘angry drunks’ because alcohol releases inhibitions.


The military teaches young men and women how to kill.


The Republican administration in 2020 executed 13 federal prisoners, despite the fact that only5 states had killed prisoners in 2019. As Agatha Christie said, judges murder within the law.


There is no protection from violence by guards or other prisoners for the over 2 million prisoners in the US, the highest per capita percentage in the world.

Parents, Schools, 4H, The NRA

Parents, Schools, 4H, the NRA teach children to stalk and kill animals in the woods. Schools teach students to kill & dissect animals. Analysis of serial killers is that over 90% were taught to kill when young by farming or hunting adults or entering the military. Children watch as adults smash beehives and exterminate raccoons squirrels and birds in attics or catch mice with brutal glue or spring traps. They are taught that killing animals, birds, and fishes for food, stealing the milk of cows and the eggs of chickens is what humans should do. They are exposed to tv shows of people clapping at rodeos as animals' necks are broken by jerked ropes before they are slammed to the ground.4H is an animal agriculture promoting group which teaches children to nurture and raise animals and then to be involved in their killing.

Corporal Punishment:

Spanking or whipping are still legal in many states. This culture was brought to colonial America from Britain where boys in public schools were often flogged. Such violent violation drives children's anger underground.

What We Ingest:

What we eat and drink and violence: When animals are in agonized pain, terror and anger at slaughterhouses, they secrete adrenaline some of which remains in their murdered flesh even after cooking, affecting action. In addition, artery blocking animal fat can create high blood pressure and frustration, generating anger. American obesity is related to meat and dairy consumption. Obesity also makes people angry.


Some tv shows, 4H, the NRA and parents teach children to stalk and kill animals in the woods. Schools teach students to kill & dissect animals. Analysis of serial killers is that most were taught to kill when young. Children watch as adults smash beehives and exterminate raccoons squirrels and birds in attics. Cop shows depict real handcuffing with guns drawn. TV shows, movies and video games glorify violence.


We have more guns per capita than any other country on earth. Last year 113,150 were shot by guns. Of that number 36,500 died. Assault weapons, sale of ammunition for assault weapons, ghost guns, tv gun sales and gun shows should be banned.

Killings By Police:

Police killings last year by country US:1146 Zero deaths in Switzerland, UK, Japan, Denmark, Iceland, Nepal, Australia, Germany, Finland, New Zealand, Norway, Taiwan, Portugal, Sweden, Poland, Belgium, Indonesia, Netherlands

Anger Management And Conflict Resolution

Citizens in general should be taught anger management and conflict resolution in school. Such courses should be required for those convicted of violent crime. Police who have been charged with excessive force should be required to take these courses as well.


Poverty and job loss have resulted from covid lockdowns.
Not for many decades has there been as much hunger and
homelessness as there is now. Desperate lack of money creates anger.

Mass shooters:

Mass shooters can be 1. racially motivated or 2. hatred of prostitutes or 3. revenge for perceived insults or 4. mind control pawns 5. even someone upset by a fast food order etc. Virtually all mass shootings in the US are caused by white males.
