Mass Shootings In The United States During 2015
There must be a better way forward
Today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day, and if you search the hashtag #wearorange on Twitter and Instagram you’ll find photo after photo of people sporting the color orange to raise awareness about defeating gun violence. Celebrities like Amy Schumer and Julianne Moore have vocal about promoting this day of apparel-based activism, and with number of gun-related deaths surpassing 5,000 this year, the call for change could not be more urgent.
The video above tracks the mass shootings that took place in the United States during 2015. With more than 300 incidents on record in just one year, you start to wonder how many it will take before we are willing to make the changes necessary to curtail gun violence here at home.
