Memorial Day weekend marked by more than a dozen mass shootings in the U.S.

Amid calls for gun control after last week’s massacre at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school, shots rang out across the country over the Memorial Day weekend, with more than a dozen mass shootings in the span of 72 hours.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, which tracks shootings in the United States, there were at least 14 “mass shootings” in the country over the weekend, from early Saturday to late Monday.

At least nine people were killed in the shootings, with more than 60 injured, according to the organization’s data.

  1. If there were perceptive or futuristic Lawmakers when weapons / gun first were marketed, just maybe Gun Laws would be beneficial now, however current gun laws now will only help some.

    Too many legal and illegal guns are already in the streets and they can be bought or stolen to sell to commit crimes, in addition you do not need background checks and lets not forget the Black Market for guns.

    Mass killing is almost like Racism, its perpetual.

    Stopping mass killing now institutions and entities will have to become arm prison camps and you cannot guarantee them.
