And now, for some stats

Yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, an 18-year-old with an assault rifle he purchased legally fought his way through armed police to enter an elementary school and massacre 19 young children and two teachers. It had only been 10 days since another 18-year-old with an assault rifle killed 10 people in a grocery store in Buffalo. 

It was the 213th mass shooting in the United States this year.

It was the 27th school shooting in the United States this year.

It was the 554th school shooting since the Columbine massacre in 1999.

Guns are now the leading cause of childhood deaths in America, topping car accidents.

  1. This is insane. As Steve Kerr said "we can't get numb to this."
