Several high-profile shootings that have taken place over the last few weeks in New York, Texas, and Oklahoma have led to over half of Americans chanting in support of making gun violence laws more strict. Gun violence has been on the rise across the United States in the past few years, a trend fueled by multiple factors, from the economic and social disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to the unrest during the 2020 elections, as well as a surge in gun sales. More than 17,000 people have died or been injured due to gun violence in the country so far this year, during which America has seen at least 110 mass shootings.
