Mass Shooting Across the US
Mass shootings in the US are not new for US citizens, but the violence can leave a huge trauma for the people around it and in that very situation. These shootings can happen anywhere, whether in cities or rural areas.
This past weekend alone, there have been reports of shootings in Chicago where there were at least 60 shots; 4 were shot in Idaho, an ambush that killed a state trooper in Pennsylvania, and in Missouri where 12 were shot and one of them died.
There are many reasons why these things happen. It can be a dispute among adolescents where instead of fist fighting, they would use firearms, the prevalence of gun use in the US, or lack of authorities.
