Jorge Ramos on why it’s important to talk about guns in the United States

The ability to own firearms in the US is a right guaranteed by the second amendment. The issue lies, not in having a gun, but rather, in how those guns are used and regulated. The numbers show there have been over 1,000 mass shootings in the country since a gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children, in Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012. (Jun 2017).
