Since the Parkland shooting massacre five years ago, there have been 2,740 mass shootings in the US
On this edition of Your Call, we discuss the ongoing epidemic of gun violence in the United States. It’s been five years since 17 students and teachers were shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were injured and an untold number were left traumatized.
Little has changed since then.
Last night, the United States experienced its 67th mass shooting this year. Three students were shot and killed and five students critically wounded at Michigan State University. The 43-year-old gunman shot and killed himself, according to authorities. They still have no idea why he opened fire at two campus locations.
