Gun violence is rampant in the US. As of today there has been 129 mass shootings in 2023.

Today 28 year old Audrey Hale entered Covenant Christian school in Nashville, TN armed with 2 AR-style weapons and opened fire killing three children & three adults.

It is believed that the weapons were purchased legally.

The Washington Post — Today, the AR-15 is the best-selling rifle in the United States, industry figures indicate. About 1 in 20 U.S. adults — or roughly 16 million people — own at least one AR-15, according to polling data from The Washington Post and Ipsos.

It also has become a stark symbol of the nation’s gun violence epidemic. Ten of the 17 deadliest U.S. mass shootings since 2012 have involved AR-15s.
