The shootings causing many victims remain a recurring scourge in the United States, in schools, supermarkets or in the workplace in particular.

In 2018, a massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida, when a former student fired an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, killing 17 people and injuring about 15 others on Valentine's Day, had sent shock waves through the country and revived protests calling for tighter controls on firearms sales.
