  • According to GunPolicy.org, 75 percent of the world's 875 million guns are civilian controlled. Globally, millions are wounded through the use of guns. Assault by firearm resulted in 180,000 deaths in 2013 up from 128,000 deaths in 1990. There was an additionally 47,000 unintentional firearm related deaths in 2013. Levels of gun related violence vary greatly among geographical regions, countries, and even subnationally. The United States has the highest rate of gun related deaths per capita among developed countries, though it also has the highest rate of gun ownership and the highest rate of officers. Mother Jones has found that, in the United States, "gun death rates tend to be higher in states with higher rates of gun ownership." It has also found that "[g]un death rates are generally lower in states with restrictions such as assault-weapons bans or safe-storage requirements." Gun control is a very controversial topic in the United States of America today. Gun control is defined as “Laws or policies that regulate within a jurisdiction the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians”. (The Simple Truth About Gun Control). Often, the Second Amendment is referenced by those both in favor and against gun control because while guns have played an integral role in America's history, they have also caused much destruction. Due to recent mass shootings in the United States in schools, movie theaters, night clubs, etc. this issue has come to the forefront of many political and everyday debates. According to the United Nations, Deaths from small firearms exceed that of all other weapons combined, and more die each year from gun related violence than did in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. The global death toll from use of guns may number as high as 1,000 dead each day. (en)
  • 槍械暴力字面上指使用槍械威脅、施以暴力或造成傷害。「槍械暴力」一詞也泛用於槍枝政策辯論的背景以用來描述槍枝濫用所造成的傷害。槍械暴力可大致定義為利用火器進行暴力及犯罪的事實;該定義可或不可包括歸類為自衛、執法行動或安全合法使用火器作為運動、打獵及打靶等的舉動。槍械暴力包括兩種蓄意犯罪:兇殺(儘管並非所有兇殺案都自動被視為犯罪)和以致命武器攻擊及來自火器的不當使用造成的非蓄意傷害或死亡,這種情況在未成年人居多。定義上深一層的混亂往往是在槍械「暴力」上整個統計將涉及自我蓄意造成的槍傷數據(包括自殺及企圖自殺)故意包括在內所造成的。 「槍械暴力」一詞曾被評為有傳達政策的傾向,因為該詞將罪犯在暴力攻擊中扮演的角色模糊化,反而強調他選擇哪種工具;照這種用法,若在討論汽機車撞人兇殺案時,也可使用「汽機車暴力」一詞,故是不合理的。對比之下,「槍械犯罪」一語一直為槍械管制與擁槍權政策主張人士兩者長年下來沿用,不過強調不同面相:前者強調透過頒布並堅持合理的法令來達成降低槍械暴力的目標,而後者則透過從重量刑或者其他方法支持掃除罪犯的需求。 槍械暴力在整個世界的水平差別很大,在南非和哥倫比亞發生率非常高,而泰國、瓜地馬拉及許多其他發展中國家發生率則屬高。新加坡、智利、新西蘭和其他許多國家槍支暴力水平低。美國在已開發國家之中有著最高的發生率,這得歸因於美國相較其他已開發國家較為鬆散的槍械管制法規之故。 (zh)
