Stop the Killing: How to End the Mass Shooting Crisis by Katherine Schweit addresses the thorny issue of guns and gun violence. The author has had a noteworthy career, from being in the media to obtaining a law degree and serving as a special agent with the FBI. When the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred, she was chosen as a member of the team to help find a solution. Their report spanning fourteen years of incidents indicated an increase in shootings from an average of 6.4 to around 16.4 annually, yet no one seemed to take note of the escalating problem. When there is a shooting, it is followed by mass anger and numerous calls to support the victims, but generally, it ends there. What is the responsibility of the government and citizens in addressing this issue? This work examines the various issues such as pathways to violence, who, and why.
Stop the Killing by Katherine Schweit contains a wealth of information. The author acknowledges that this is a multifaceted issue that needs to be addressed from many different perspectives. For this reason, this book stood out from most of the others I have read. I found it to be thought-provoking on a variety of levels, such as the role of leadership, the mass media, and the Internet in maintaining a healthy balance in society. I also loved the way that the author provided comprehensive statistics and copious references, indicating that the book is well-researched and can be used as a guide to finding other resources on this subject. The readers will also appreciate the easy-to-understand language used, which makes it accessible to all types of readers. I cannot wait to read more from this author.
