Our Society Is Sick
The shooting in Boulder, Colorado, left 10 people dead, including a store manager and a police officer. The shooting suspect, 21-year-old Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, is accused of opening fire Monday afternoon at the King Scoopers store in Boulder killing people ranging in age from 20 to 65.
The motive of the killer isn’t immediately known, but police believe he was the only perpetrator.
In the last week alone the United States has seen at least seven shootings in which at least four people were injured or killed.
President Biden said he was devastated by the killing of the 10 people and urged action on gun control. Congress has tried to address these problems before. The House passed two gun bills on March 11th, less than two weeks ago. The bills would expand background checks on all commercial gun sales.
This is very sad in our country that with easy access to guns there will be mass shootings. These shootings will cost lives in red states or blue states, cities or suburbs.
This tragedy comes back to the fundamental issue of education and economic conditions, especially in the difficult time of this pandemic. Many people are out of a job and many people are still suffering.
We need to take immediate action as a national emergency issue from community to Congress to find ways to prevent these mass shootings as soon as possible.
