Three mass shootings in California in four days kill 10 people

The three incidents in four days killed 12 people in total including two gunmen. 10 people were injured in the incidents as well. The incidents left a huge number of students, families, and communities terrorized. Gabrielle Giffords, a former congresswoman, said on Monday, “The failure to protect our communities, families, and children is a waking nightmare that needs to end.” She added that the immediate actions were needed to be taken for saving the generations of Americans.

Giffords is a shooting survivor and a gun violence advocate. She added that we could not accept that level of gun violence. Kasey Zahner, “There’s a moment where you just feel hopeless.” It is a brutal personal loss of the families. California has some of the strongest gun laws as compared to other American states. These gun violence incidents have made the Californians terrorized.
