Uvalde Shooting Victims Were in Same 4th Grade Classroom: Police

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Uvalde Shooting Victims Were in Same 4th Grade Classroom: Police” – below is their description.

The mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, is putting the spotlight on the US being the most heavily armed civilian population by far in the world. A recent spurt of firearms purchases has likely increased that lead.

US gun owners possess 393.3 million weapons, according to a 2018 report by the Small Arms Survey, a Geneva-based organization, which is higher than the country’s population now of about 330 million. India, which has almost 1.4 billion people, had the second most civilian-owned firearms with 71.1 million.
