The following shooting incidents, as listed below, occurred all across the United States, this year.

So far, this year of the incidents that have been reported and appear in the media there have been over forty people killed and one hundred wounded in gun related crimes across the United States.

I understand that the US constitution gives their citizens the right to bare arms, but I would assume that when the founding fathers establish the constitution, they could not imagine that right would eventually turn into an epidemic of violence across the US.

They say that ‘guns don’t kill people, people do’, but if you have easy access to these weapons there’s every likelihood that you are going to use them.
