Despite the polices tireless efforts to crack down on drug and fire arms, juveniles desire for and interest in drugs and fire arms are still high. In addition, since there are not strict regulations regarding violence on TV and gunshot violence in computer game software in Japan, the overwhelming majority of families unconsciously let their children watch murder scenes on the TV or computer games. As a means to stop this trend, we are lobbying politicians and other official figures for the development of laws while delivering educational lectures nationwide.
Our activities are made possible through your donations. We ask for contributions from many people to conduct research and surveys together with an American gun control group to assess the actual situation regarding overseas gun shooting range aimed at Japanese national and the situation of Japanese nationals smuggling of fire arms. The disclosure of these findings by experts in the field is essential for eradication of crimes involving fire arms. We also promote staff training for social workers who can conduct the educational activities with us.
