Mass shootings have plagued the United States during the Independence Day extended weekend, leaving a devastating toll of 18 people dead and over 100 injured, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
The shootings spanned across 13 states and the District of Columbia, further highlighting the urgent need for gun safety measures in the country.
In one particularly alarming incident in Baltimore, the largest city near the US capital, two individuals lost their lives and approximately 30 others were injured in a mass shooting on Sunday. The tragic event prompted the Biden administration to call on Congress to take immediate action in enhancing national gun safety legislation.
The series of mass shootings during this celebratory holiday has reignited debates surrounding the pervasive issue of gun violence in the United States. Advocates for stricter gun control argue that comprehensive measures are necessary to address this ongoing crisis and prevent further loss of life.
As investigations into these tragic incidents continue, communities and lawmakers are grappling with the aftermath and striving to find effective solutions to curb gun violence and ensure the safety and well-being of all Americans.
