Palm Bay Shooting Raises Issues of Gun Ownership

A shooting at a campus in Eastern Florida has led society to question its motives regarding gun control. Even though the whole scenario got carried out in self-defense, it pointed the finger at human aggression and the ready availability of lethal weapons. 

The two seemed to have a chicken-and-egg relationship. And when the twin factors were brought together it was like a lit match in a firecracker factory. Things simply spiraled out of control. Two men approached a student and began beating him up with a pool cue. The student went back to his car and took out a gun. He shot one of the men. Later on, all three gave the self-defense plea before the law.   

The perpetrator of the gunshot wounds was badly hurt by the pool cue. He ended up in a hospital. The man who was fired on by a gun is miraculously alive too. A few weeks back the law laid down a stipulation that students were not allowed to carry guns or rifles while on campus. But with this occurrence of senseless violence it seems that stricter rules and regulations are in the works. 

The United States has been on the receiving end as far as school shootings are concerned. The Columbine Shooting which happened quite some time back is a perfect example of the tensions and passive-aggressive tendencies that are boiling beneath the civilized surface.
