We should all know by now that gun violence in America is more prominent then ever. According to nonprofit Gun Violence Archive,  there have been 154 mass shootings in the US so far this year. We are only  177 days into the year, which means the US has basically had only 23 days that hasnt had a shooting, which is not even a month. A mass shooting is not technically defined but Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting a shooting that has shot/and or killed four or more people at the same general time and location but In 2013, a federal mandate lowered that threshold to three deaths. The Gun Violence Archive shows that 7,000 or more people died from gun-related violence so far this year and more than 13,300 others were injured. So far their has been no major changes in gun control. Do you think gun laws should change?
