The US makes up less than 5% of the world’s population but has 31% of the world’s mass shooters.

Though mass shootings comprise a small amount of the country’s overall gun violence, they have become a target for politicians and interest groups who seek to prevent the multiple deaths of people often targeted at random.

Most recently gunmen targeted the Garlic Food Festival in Northern California on Sunday evening July 28 2019, killing 4 people including a 6 year old kid. Mass shootings originated over 20 years ago on April 20, 1999 in Columbine Colorado when a couple of Caucasian kids murdered innocent students at their High School. Since 1999 America roughly sees one mass shooting per day. In Las Vegas in October 2017, a wealthy caucasian gunman killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more. In June 2016, a gunman in Orlando, Florida, killed 49 people and wounded dozens more at a nightclub. There is only one way to stop people from being shot and murdered with GUNS. See below.
