Gun control has become an unavoidable topic in America. According to the Gun Violence Archive, more than 15,000 people were fatally shot last year. Of those, 344 were killed in mass shootings — including 58 people who died in the deadliest shooting, which occurred in Las Vegas. New York, for example, requires background checks for all firearm purchasers, and all ammunition sales must be recorded and reported. The state also banned assault weapons and gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said the United States should look at limiting firearm access for violent people rather than arming synagogues, churches or mosques.
