Do you know that in the United States, 9 children die due to gun violence every day?
Do you know that 75 adult are killed by crimes using firearms all over the U.S. every day?
That means that a person dies from gun violence every 17 minutes in America.
It is not that guns kill people but that people kill people using fire arms.
Without exception, among us there are families who have lost a loved one through gun violence. However, if people cannot get guns easily, such crime will never happen. We know more than anyone else about the importance of ending the obsession with fire arms.
In Japan, which boasts of being a nation banning fire arms, in this decade 10,000 fire arms have been detected and nearly 300 people have been killed by fire arms, half of them were general citizens involved gun violence. while Japan boast to the world of fire arms ban nation.
In recent years, the number of shooting incidents and gun revelations has decreased. But this is only because gangsters have gone into hidings to avoid capture and risk still exists.
On the other hand, crimes committed by young people are increasingly atrocious and the number of violent incidents involving elementary, junior high and high school students has risen sharply.
We have appealed for amendments to be made to the regulations on air guns, and the Swords and Firearms Control Law. We have urged the general public to refrain from joining overseas gun shooting ranges. We have insisted on the importance of educating children who have an unhealthy interest in fire arms and easily resort to violence. STOP GUN CARAVAN is an organization which provides social support activities to eradicate drugs, fire arms, and crimes of violence such as those referred to hereinafter by cooperating with the National Police Agency, prefectural police, and overseas NGO.
