The pressure of work, the technology gadgets, access to everything and not proper counseling making it even more disturbing. The alarming condition warns us to think over it.

The recent incidents happened in different Americans school cant be just condemned but also us as a whole society are responsible for such kind of misshapen. Isn’t it so easy to carry a gun and use it whenever you want, especially for kids. Even the school going children can carry weapon in the developed country like America.

The weapon carrying trend in america is not new but the history started from the american war of independence when due to lack of funds and due to some other reasons it was not possible for america to establish a state army. So the individuals carrying personal weapons and above the age of 18 submit an application to be a part of army. Each individual carry their own weapon.

Another reason that shows american love for weapon is its use when there was hunting was the only source for the people of America. They carry weapons to hunt animals. The love for using weapon has grown gradually and even now the people of america are much armed than any of the country. Even a developed country like america is carrying more and deadly weapons than Yemen.

The Gun Culture is the center of debate for many decades. People are raising their voices over the great threat. There is still a great debate of Gun Control in american politics. Now its time to review the policies regarding weapons not only in america but also by other countries.

Not only controlling and monitoring of the weapon sale is enough to avoid such kind of happenings but also we must change the policies towards other. We have to raise voices over the major violations. Counselling our child and helping them in changing behavior and also keeping an eye over them may cause in avoiding these incidents.

If they found a place for their event then it was difficult to send out invitations one by one to every individual invited. Founding the exact location of the event was another major problem for the people invited. Communication between the host and the guests was a major problem that is improved by Social Media.
