Gun Violence This Week
There were 14 separate mass shooting incidents in the US in the last week, where 15 people were killed and 50 were injured. I am documenting all mass shooting incidents for the week every Sunday, so please take a moment to review them and remember to keep up the fight for sensible gun reform.
