Streets Of The United States Battle Field

INTERNATIONAL: Some 36,000 Americans or more die by firearms every year, or about 100 a day. The United States leads high-income countries in gun violence, accounting for 9% of all firearm homicides globally even with 4% of the world's population, while also possessing more civilian-owned guns - 393 million - than any comparable nation.

Tuesday's carnage began with the 18-year-old suspect, identified as Salvador Ramos, shooting his own grandmother, who survived, authorities said. He fled that scene and crashed his car near the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. There he launched a bloody rampage that ended when he was killed, apparently shot by police.

A day after a gunman killed at least 19 school children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school. Some Americans are starting to stand up and voice their opinion about gun laws. Stand up against the gun lobbyists.

 House Majority Leader, Sen. Chuck Schumer accused his Republican colleagues of caring "more about the NRA (National Rifle Association) than they do about families who grieve victims of gun violence."

“It’s sad the world that we live in, we need to reform that. Guns shouldn’t be as easily accessible, like it’s easier to get a gun than baby formula right now,” said Warriors' Damion Lee. Warriors star point guard Steph Curry echoed his coach Steve Kerr’s emotional pre-game news conference where he called for stricter gun control, before adding that he could not imagine the pain and grief felt by the families affected.

'I don't want 18-year-olds to have guns' - New York Governor Kathy Hochul.

 “How does an 18-year-old purchase an AR-15 in the state of New York, state of Texas? That person is not old enough to buy a legal drink. I want to work with the legislature to change that. I want it to be 21….I don't want 18-year-olds to have guns. At least, at least not in the state of New York.”

David Hogg, a survivor of the 2018 Parkland, Florida, high school shooting and a gun-control activist, believes the cycle of legislative inaction may finally end following deadly massacre at a Texas elementary school.

"It just has to be different," he said in an interview outside the White House on Wednesday 25th May"I want anything. We've gotta save lives now."

In another social media post, Steven Garcia paid tribute to his late daughter: "Our Ellie was a doll and was the happiest ever… I was gonna DJ for her at her party like she wanted me too!"

Messages of support and condolences poured in on Garcia's page. "Not only was she my little cousin, she was also my daughter's age," Eli B. Ruiz wrote.

"Remember the day of my dad's funeral Steven Garcia gave me a big tight hug, I will be doing the same for him."
