Our Shocking Ignorance about Guns & Prisons
(Please leave your comments here and not on YouTube.)
This gun thing is making me mad. What is wrong with us that Japan has no school shootings and that we ignore the gun regulations they employ? HELLO OUT THERE. I’m talking to us. My side. We are ignoring what would fix this problem. Show everyone this video and the whole thing is solved. How come I never knew anything about Japan’s success until I stumbled on this video? This is insane.
I have the same sort of feelings about our prison system. Norway has one that works. Their recidivism rate is 20% and ours is 76.6%. Why aren’t we having any conversations about their radically different way of treating prisoners? Michael Moore even did a segment about this in his recent documentary, and it’s more insanity that it’s still unknown.
It’s urgent that humanity become a caring species. We are in it together. Gun regulations and prison reforms can be the forerunners of revamping everything to run on caring instead of on the greed and vengeance that we are run by now. We have the information about what works. It is incontrovertible. Let’s hear from you. How can everyone get wised up?
