The United States is witnessing another year of record gun violence, raising domestic and international scrutiny of its comparatively loose gun laws and placing pressure on lawmakers to enact meaningful reforms.
Gun Violence represents a challenge to everyday life in the United States. Between 2008 and 2017, 342439 people were killed by a gunshot, meaning that 1 person was shot dead every 15 minutes across the U. S. Gun violence represents a multifaceted problem requiring a nuanced approach focusing on prevention.
