美国再发枪击案,奥巴马对枪械暴力喊“够了”
来源:21英语网    日期: 2015-12-04

  当地时间12月2日中午11时左右,美国南加州地区圣贝纳迪诺县发生枪击案。据新华网报道,一男一女两名嫌犯已经死亡,另有一名嫌犯被扣押。枪击事件共造成14人死亡,17人受伤。
 
  警方表示,已死亡的两名嫌犯,各自持有长枪和手枪。几小时后,警方发现了他们逃离现场时驾驶的深色SUV汽车并与之交火,两名嫌犯被击毙。

  美国近年来不断发生枪击案件,这一现象也引起了美国总统奥巴马的强烈关注。在得知南加州枪击案发生后,奥巴马第n次呼吁加强对于枪支的管控。
 
  据中新网报道,奥巴马在接受美国媒体采访时表示,“美国能够采取一些措施,即使无法完全阻止每一起枪击案,也能有效减少枪击案发生的频率。美国应通过立法实施更严格的控枪,比如根据目前法律,被运输安全管理局规定禁止乘坐飞机的公民却可以合法买到枪支,国会两党议员应采取行动堵上枪支管理漏洞,美国能够让本国人民变得“更安全”。”
 
  Two suspects, a male and a female, were dead and one possible suspect in custody after the deadly shooting that has killed at least 14 people and injured 17 others in San Bernardino City of Southern California on Wednesday (Dec 2).
 
  San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan told a press conference that police found a suspected explosive device in the Inland Regional Center building where the shooting happened at around 11:00 am local time. Police are still searching the building.
 
  The two killed suspects were one male and one female. Both of them had rifles and handguns. Their dark SUV which they drove to flee was found several hours later in the afternoon by police and after a while of chasing they stopped and exchanged gunfire with police at a residential area several miles away from the shooting scene. Both were killed during the gunfire.
 
  U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday renewed his call for stricter gun control.
 
  "What we do know is that there are steps we can take to make Americans safer and that we should come together on a bipartisan basis at every level of government to make these (mass shooting incidents) rare as opposed to normal," said Obama in an interview with the U.S. TV network CBS News.
 
  "We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events, 'cause it doesn't happen with the same frequency in other countries,'" he said, echoing the remarks he had already used on several occasions this year after mass shooting incidents.
 
  马上学:《华盛顿邮报》2012年曾报道,在过去50年全球发生的25起枪击大案中,有15起发生在美国,在大多数案件中,凶手都合法拥有枪支。《洛杉矶时报》今年8月援引的一项调查数据显示,美国一百个人拥有枪支88.8支,境内枪支总数量为2.7亿。在美国,民众要求禁枪的呼声从未断绝。
 
  2012年美国纽顿市校园枪击案发生以后,奥巴马明确表示要实行枪支管控(gun control)。由于公民拥有枪支的权利受到美国宪法第二条修正案(Second Amendment)的保护,奥巴马的决定在美国国内引起了很大争议。所以,奥巴马曾在2013年国情咨文中避免使用gun control等敏感字眼,换之以“购枪者背景审核(background checks)、禁售攻击性枪支与大容量弹夹(get weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets)”等具体措施来呼吁实行更严格的控枪政策。
