Salvador R.* (18) armed stormed into an elementary school in the US state of Texas on Tuesday and shot around. At least 19 school children and two teachers die.

In the meantime, the discussion about stricter gun laws has become loud again. More children and young people die from gunshot wounds in the United States than from car accidents. According to official data from the health authority CDC from 2020, a total of 4368 children and adolescents up to the age of 19 died from firearms. This compares to 4,036 motor vehicle-related deaths – the leading cause of death in this age group to date.
