A mass shooting is any incident involving 4 or more injured. With over 200 mass shootings in the United States this year politicians are working on better ways to protect citizens and ways to prevent these incidents from happening. Representative of the 13th District, Congressman Rodney Davis, says that Illinois as a state has some of the strongest background check laws.
Congressman Davis says that the new bill that the Democrats wanted to pass wouldn’t have prevented the recent mass shootings.
Davis says that he thinks mass shootings have increased in the United States due to a devaluation of human life.
Congressman Rodney Davis was on the congressional baseball team that was shot at in June of 2017 that resulted in 1 death and 6 injured.
