The Uvalde massacre of 19 innocent children and two adults barricaded in one classroom by an 18-year-old armed with an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle he legally bought isn’t a Texas tragedy; it’s an American tragedy. The stats are appalling. The Uvalde shooting is the 27th school shooting this year alone – one every five days. The U.S. tops the list of school shootings globally. And the U.S. counts three times more mass shootings than the top 17 developed nations combined. This isn’t about the Second Amendment; it’s about the common-sense balance of the constitutional right to bear arms against regulating the use of firearms capable of mass destruction.
