It’s been seven years since Sandy Hook and almost three years since MSD, yet still there have been no major new laws passed on gun control. In 2019, 399 mass shootings were reported nationwide with 14 from Florida. With all the gun violence over the past years, why hasn’t the government declared a public health emergency? Stricter laws (such as, requiring universal background checks, closing the gun show loopholes nationwide banning the manufacturing, sale and possession of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines) must be passed. We as a nation need to do better or more lives will be lost.
