The United States has seen a series of gun attacks in recent weeks: at a FedEx delivery service site in Indianapolis, an office building in California, a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, and at several spas in Atlanta.
U.S. President Joe Biden last month called gun violence in the United States an epidemic and an international disgrace.
More than 43,000 gun deaths were recorded in the United States last year, including suicides, according to figures from the Gun Violence Archive, a gun violence research organization.
