On Friday, the US Supreme Court rules that Americans have the right to carry firearms in public, in a landmark decision that will prevent states from imposing restrictions on the carrying of this type of gun.
The majority judge’s ruling, which comes at a time when the country is experiencing s shocking increase in firearm crimes, overturns a New York law requiring people to prove they need self-defense to obtain a firearm license.
A report recently revealed that the United States witnessed 246 mass shootings in 2022.
The report from the “Gun Violence Archive”, a nonprofit that tracks shootings in the US, said that is the same number of mass shootings in 2021 until June 5.
