There have already been 93 mass shootings this year in the United States. And, this is far from the first incident affecting children. One of the worst recent mass shootings in American history is the now infamous Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in the Northeastern United States.
Guns flow more freely in the United States than, in some areas, clean water. In other words, these shootings don’t just fall out of thin air. Cause and effect is basic logic for a reason, since effects really do have causes.
And it literally goes to the level of a small child to ignore that and say these mass shootings somehow have nothing to do with guns. Really? If the guns weren’t available, the shootings wouldn’t take place.
