The death tolls change, the locations change, but public mass shootings remain a constant in the U.S. According to the Gun Violence Archive, there have been 12,504 gun deaths in the country this year alone, and even though mass shootings only account for a tiny fraction of this number (307 or 2.5%), these incidents have left the whole country terrified of their wild unpredictability. The victims of these shootings were innocent people who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. This has led many activists to question U.S gun laws, saying that 89 firearms per 100 residents isn't normal. Moreover, a cross-section study found that of all the 50 states, the six states with the strictest gun laws had lower suicide rates. Another paper also pointed out that children living in states with stricter gun laws were safer. The list of scientific studies backing-up gun control are numerous, but some people still vehemently disagree with this evidence and argue that guns don't kill people, people do. They also add that such measures would violate their 2nd amendment rights. A review of published studies on gun control released in October 2003 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was unable to determine any statistically significant effects that would result from such laws, either. It's clear this ongoing debate among Americans isn't slowing down anytime soon, just take a look at Twitter. However, within the many, many tweets that discuss this subject matter, there are some that lack reason and logic. Luckily, people instantly call them out. And, to our delight, sometimes they use sarcasm and humor to do so. This time, check out a compilation of some of the best clapbacks to pro-gun activists, and share your own opinion on the matter in the comments.

I once had a rather funny discussion with an american that didn't believe "assault rifles" existed as a separate class. Never mind that the first one literally translates from german as "assault rifle". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StG_44
