Gun violence

"2020 set a record with almost 20,000 people in America dying from gun violence; an additional 24,000 people killed themselves using a gun. And 2021 has already seen a wave of mass shootings. Eight people were killed and five more wounded at a mass shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis Thursday, at least the seventh mass shooting in the past month." - BuzzFeed

NRA controlled Republicans block gun safety laws

"The NRA successfully killed the 2013 bill by arguing background checks were ineffective in stopping crime and an infringement on Second Amendment rights. Those views are by now dogma in most of the Republican Party. Most Republicans in Congress frame any gun control measures — even modest and broadly popular changes such as expanding existing background check laws to gun show sales — as undermining the Second Amendment. Despite the wave of recent mass shootings, Senate Republicans are showing no signs of budging from their opposition to new gun control laws." - BuzzFeed

Need for common sense gun safety laws

“It is a national embarrassment, what’s going on,” President Biden said in a news conference on Friday, as he repeated his support for a ban on assault weapons. “And it’s not only these mass shootings that are occurring. Every single day, every single day, there’s a mass shooting in the United States if you count all those who are killed out on the streets of our cities and our rural areas. It’s a national embarrassment and must come to an end.” - NYT
