Will the Texas mass shooting of schoolchildren rekindle calls for tighter gun control? | 7.30

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Will the Texas mass shooting of schoolchildren rekindle calls for tighter gun control? | 7.30” – below is their description.

Parents around the world are in both shock and mourning after watching another elementary school shooting playout in the Uvalde, Texas – resulting in the deaths of 19 innocent children and two adults. It echoes similarities to the Sandy Hook massacre almost a decade ago, with little progress on gun reform since.

Nick Bryant is a former BBC correspondent in Washington, and he speaks to Leigh Sales about the renewed calls for gun control in the US.
