In the aftermath of yet another mass shooting in the United States – this time at a high school in Florida – people from all corners have understandably begun to ask the most important question: “why?” It’s difficult to argue with the fact that the US is leading the world in terms of both the frequency and the severity of these events, but this is also something that demands the question “why are these things happening in the first place?”
In truth, it’s a seemingly simple quest that does NOT have an easy answer. Is it too easy for someone with severe mental issues to get their hands on a deadly firearm? Probably – which any reasonable person would attest to. On the other hand, will suddenly banning all guns or introducing blanket legislation that makes legal gun ownership impossible solve the problem? No – which, again, any reasonable person would be willing to admit.
But FOX News host Greg Gutfeld recently took a look at another angle for this question, the role of the media itself.
Does the media firestorm that these types of events tend to create often act as an appealing incentive for the next person to carry out an attack? It would be hard to argue against the fact that this plays at least some role in these events all too often.
For Gutfeld’s complete and compelling take on this particular topic, be sure to check out the entire segment below.
