  1. It’s such a shame that our country has the power to minimize the devastation of gun violence but has done very little after thousands of massacres. Our so-called developed nation resembles a war zone with our astronomical level of gun violence compared to other developed countries. We prioritize our individual “rights” and privileges over the lives of others. Hopefully, our collective grief will provoke our nation to enact common-sense gun law reform finally.

  2. Someone please tell me what gun laws, regulations, permits will keep the bad guys and the criminals from getting guns? And remember, bad guys and criminals don’t give a s*** about gun laws permits or regulations!
    Please don’t say ban guns! You know that will never happen!
    By the way, why don’t we ban cell phones for kids under the age of 21.. Over 1600 kids under 21 we’re killed while texting and driving!
    Answer… It’s not the gun or the cell phone! It’s the person using them!!!

  3. The comment by Krista Idowu is logical, exceptional, excellent! When will more concerned people start to see the tragic reality of gun homicides, suicides, and accidents??? Pro-gun politicians, activists, and lobbyists are co-murderes in each death caused by a gun, a rifle, or another weapon! Expose these gun-thirsty folks; don’t allow their corrupt ideas and thirst for violence brainwash you!

    In 2021, there were approx. 45,000 shooting-related deaths in USA. That’s a warzone!!!
    There were about 65 gun suicides per day; that added up to 23,725 casualties:(!!!
