The focus this week understandably remains on gun violence, after simultaneous shootings took place on Wednesday in three American cities, less than two weeks after the Uvalde shooting. The “home of the brave” is taking on a whole new meaning when more and more people have seen their hometowns or a minority group targeted. People are nervous about going to movie theaters or sending their kids to school and the headlines bear that fear out. “How to Calm Anxiety or Fear” after mass shootings listicles are popping up everywhere.

For all the parenting books that attempt to quell parents' fears about the health and happiness of their children, death by gun violence is the leading killer of young people in the United States, surpassing motor vehicle accidents since 2020. Meanwhile, Canada has proposed sweeping gun legislation in light of recent events here in the U.S.
