US has 150 shootings so far in 2021
According to figures from the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), there have been 150 shootings in the United States so far in 2021, while there have been 45 mass shootings since last March.
During all of 2020, there were a total of 610 such incidents in the country, compared to 417 in 2019. The recent attacks in recent weeks have put the debate on gun possession in the United States back on the table, and they have prompted the president, Joe Biden, to propose a series of reforms, including a more comprehensive background review.
However, Biden’s proposals face an almost impenetrable barrier in the Senate, where Democrats hold a large majority, so they would need to convince at least 10 Republicans to give the green light to these reforms.
