American teenagers’ attraction for weapons

In America,  the FBI coined for them a special term : “school shooter”. They  are those guys who, one day, in class, in front of their classmates and teachers with weapons in hand, in a few minutes overturn  their lives and those of the others. Every year there are hundreds of cases of violence in American schools.

This time the crime took place in Kentucky, in the car park of a college, where the Dalton Stidham, a 20-year-old business school student opened fire against a counselor. The victims are a 50-year-old man and a  20-year-old girl , while a teenage girl was injured. At the time of the shooting, in the college, there were about 30 students. The dynamics are not yet clear, but the police, who managed to find the murder weapon, a semi-automatic gun, thinks it deals with personal reasons, not linked to the university.

In Virginia, to buy a gun, you just need a clean criminal record; in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Wyoming and Alaska gun dealers are nearly a thousand by each State. Every year, hundreds of children die from bullets fired accidentally and so the U.S. President, Barack Obama, plans to introduce a series of bills to regulate the sale and the use of firearms, in the hope that American people can walk the streets without fearing for their lives.
