Do you feel safe?

Gun violence and violent crimes have become a very sensitive topic for the American society.

Lawmakers are in a decades long stalemate regarding gun laws and policies, people’s anti gun and pro gun opinions are becoming more polarized by the day. With over 700 mass shootings in the US in 2022 alone it’s becoming clear that we can’t rely on the government or the police to protect us.


But what can be done? And can anything be done at all?

The writer, psychologist and sociologist Franz Wertvollen recorded a brilliant video on this topic.

It takes a good part of uncertainty and stress away, as it ties gun violence together with larger scale social problems — xenophobia, rising mental health issues, overall discontent of people with their everyday lives and future perspectives. The absence of emotional education at schools or workplaces, which is by far more important in this issue than academic education or even gun safety training.

And that’s a refreshing approach. A bigger, more wholesome picture on the issues that have been lingering in the air and causing conflicts. Get ready to get your views expanded on this video.
