The President Joe Biden of America has described gun violence in his country as an “epidemic.”
The President’s position is coming on the heels of the daily killings that is assuming an alarming rate.
The killing spree has forced President Biden to lower the American flag at the White House, military posts, public buildings and embassies around the world.
Reports have it that America is soaked in blood once again and that only yesterday, April 15 night, a gunman opened fire at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, killing at least 8 people and injuring several others before taking his own life.
Reports said that in the past one month alone, there have been at least 45 mass shootings in the United States, meaning shootings with at least 4 victims.
Since the beginning of this year, at least 11,000 people have been shot dead in the United States, Attorney General Merrick Garland said recently. Every single day here, at least 120 or 150 people are gunned down.
Meanwhile, Republican senators are not ready for a legislation on gun control or universal background checks.
It is estimated that by tomorrow, April 17, more than 120 more Americans would have been killed, massacred in “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” That’s how bad it is.
