Investigators search for evidences outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Wednesday, May 25, 2022. Desperation turned to heart-wrenching sorrow for families of grade schoolers killed after an 18-year-old gunman barricaded himself in their Texas classroom and began shooting, killing several fourth-graders and their teachers.

An elementary school in Uvalde, Texas is the latest site of a mass shooting in the U. S. claiming the lives of 19 children and two adults. This comes two weeks after a racially motivated shooter in Buffalo, New York took the lives of 10 people at a supermarket. With mass shootings on the rise, why are more states relaxing their gun laws?

We’ll look at the history of gun deregulation in the U.S.
