The wave of shootings in the United States in recent months has prompted Republicans in Congress and Donald Trump’s administration to consider measures to toughen gun ownership for individuals.
On August 3, 22 people were killed and more than 20 wounded when a man opened fire on the crowd at a supermarket in El Paso , Texas. The next day, an armed individual killed nine people and wounded 27 others in Dayton, Ohio.
Between 2009 and 2017, at least 173 shootings occurred in the United States, according to calculations by the Everytown for Gun Safety Association.
