In the early hours of Sunday, at least nine people were killed and 16 wounded in a shooting spree in Dayton, Ohio.
The bloody incident came just hours after another mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, killed at least 20 people and wounded 26 others. So far this year, mass shootings have claimed more than 520 lives and injured at least 2,000 people in the US, according to the Gun Violence Archive. Meanwhile, the bloody shootings have drawn a barrage of criticism against the National Rifle Association (the NRA).
