Mass Shooting in California – The New York Times

A gunman shot dead 10 people and wounded at least 10 others Saturday at a dance studio in Monterey Park, Calif., a city of about 60,000 east of Los Angeles. He opened fire as many people in the city, mostly Asians, were celebrating the Chinese New Year.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said many of the victims were in their 50s and 60s, though he did not identify them.

The gunman, whom authorities identified as 72-year-old Tran Huu Can, is believed to have later attended a discotheque in the neighboring city of Alhambra. But he fled, according to authorities. Officers later found him in a parked truck after he allegedly shot himself.

Luna said the gunman used “a semi-automatic assault pistol with a magazine” which is probably not legal in California. His motives are still under investigation.

“Gun violence needs to end,” said Luna. “There is too much.”

This type of mass shooting has become catastrophically common in America; horror that is rare in any other developed country is typical here. However, the cause is no mystery. America has a huge stock of guns, making it easier for someone to carry out a deadly shooting.

It’s a bulletin point did it before: Around the world, there are people who argue, fight for relationships, have mental health problems or have racist views. But in America, it’s easier for those people to get a gun and shoot someone.

The data provides this explanation. The United States is a clear exception in terms of both civilian gun ownership and gun deaths among the world’s developed nations, as this chart by my colleague Ashley Wu shows:

If anything, the chart uses data from 2017 and 2018, highlighting the US problem. The rate of gun homicides in the US has increased in recent years, according to the Small Arms Survey.

The data shows a clear trend: Where there are more guns, there are more gun deaths. Studies show this is true at the state and national level, and for homicides, suicides, mass shootings, and mass shootings. police shooting. Tighten regulations on weapons associated with fewer gun deaths.

But efforts to reduce access to firearms have largely stalled in the United States, unable to overcome the Supreme Court’s Second Amendment interpretation, Contradictory public opinion and a tightly divided federal government.

As a result, the United States continues to suffer more mass shootings and gun deaths than any other country. Monterey Park, Calif., is simply the latest tragedy.
