Recently, we've seen a major increase in active shooter incidents in the USA, with the FBI reporting a 50% increase in cases this year. There have already been more than 250 mass shootings this year in the United States, according to the Gun Violence Archive. Thirty-eight have taken place since a rampage at an elementary school in Uvalde, Tex., left 19 children and two teachers dead on May 24. Just this past weekend, mass shootings in multiple cities killed 11 and wounded more than 60. Mass shootings, where four or more people — not including the shooter — are injured or killed, have averaged more than one per day so far this year. Not a single week in 2022 has passed without at least four mass shootings.
This is a complex issue affecting our entire society, and there's ongoing debate about the best approaches. Leaders, law enforcement and the community need to work together to develop a solution that addresses the core issues behind active shootings.
