Gun Control (cont.)
Current estimates indicate that between 35% and 42% of households in the country have at least one gun, that’s about 393 million firearms in the hands of American citizens. As of March 22, 2021, there have been 108 mass shootings in the U.S., which is higher than it was during the same time period in 2018, 2019, and 2020. This sad statistic means the country has seen more than one such shooting a day on average.
Gun control has always and will always be a hot button issue with the American legislature and public alike. While gun rights advocacy groups like the NRA and Second Amendment people claim to just want to protect themselves or overthrow some tyrannical government, most law abiding citizens just don’t want to see another mass shooting.
