KCNA on Gun-related Crimes and Future of US
Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, there happened in Florida State a horrible gun-related crime at a time when the U.S. is at a loss what measures should be taken to bring gun-related crimes under control.

A three-year child killed himself by firing a pistol he took from a bag of his uncle.

The child was immediately taken to a hospital by his parents but he breathed his last.

The child's death seems to foretell a tragic fate of the U.S., a hub of violence culture such as gun-related crimes.

According to information released by the U.S. magazine Foreign Policy, gun-related violence leaves more than 30,000 people dead and over 200,000 wounded in the U.S. every year.

This means that more than one person falls victim to this violence every two minutes.

The U.S. administration claims to have taken steps to prevent it but their prospect remains gloomy.

On January 16, the U.S. president made public a proposal for gun control the keynote of which is to ban the use of assault weapons and make an inquiry into all buyers of guns, etc.

However, this proposal has, in fact, been put on the verge of becoming null and void due to the U.S. Gun Association which rakes up a huge amount of money through gun production and sale. It put pressure upon senators from ruling and opposition parties in the run-up to the 2014 mid-term election, showing off purses.

In the final analysis, the proposal failed to reach U.S. Congress on April 17.

The bottom line of gun-related crimes rife in the U.S. is the law of the jungle and extreme misanthropy, the almighty dollar principle and individualism.

Hundreds of millions of guns possessed by Americans are charged with misanthropy. Gun report sounded in every crime is reminiscent of a shout "I can live only when I kill you" often heard from among Americans.

The U.S.-style "freedom" and "democracy" reduced human beings to brutes and produced Article 2 of the revived Constitution which recognized the right to possession of guns, giving spurs to the sale of guns and horrible gun-related crimes.

It is a matter of time that the whole of U.S. society will turn into a scene of gunfight.

Owing to the corrupt ideology and culture prevalent throughout the society, U.S.-style capitalism is bound to meet self-destruction. This is the future of the U.S.
