Civil Justice for Victims of Gun Violence

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 32,000 people are killed by guns each year in the United States. This alarming number of deaths has been on the rise and is often the central focus of one of the nation’s most controversial topics: gun control.

The Hot Topic of Gun Control  

Civil Justice for Victims of Gun Violence

The nation is divided as to whether we need more gun control or whether owning a gun is an individual’s right without the need for government interference. Gun rights advocates stand strong in arguing that owning a gun is an individual’s Second Amendment Constitutional right and there is no need for government regulation. These groups argue that individuals need to be armed in order to protect themselves.

On the other side is the group that believes that the government needs to control who can own a gun. They argue that mainstream America does not need to own a gun to protect itself. They further argue that owning a gun actually leads to more harm than good.

The Statistics

The death statistics regarding the use of guns does not take sides. A simple Google search can reveal between 20 to 30 shootings each day in the United States. This alarming number does not only involve gun violence at the hands of gangs. It involves avoidable deadly shootings in movie theatres because patrons were texting during the movies, or suicides, or even accidental deaths because children were playing with loaded guns that happened to be lying around.

Regardless of which side you support, one thing remains clear. Most people who die from guns would still be alive today if fewer Americans owned a gun. The suicidal person would be more hesitant to end his life if it was harder to kill himself. The momentary flush of anger would pass for the person who killed the movie patron for texting. And the innocent child would not have killed another if there wasn’t a gun in the house.

The bottom line is that guns make killing too easy.

Amy L.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
