We heard a lot of debate about gun control in the US
Following yesterday’s mass shooting at a primary school in the US state of Texas which left 19 students and two teachers dead, there has been a lot of debate about America’s gun situation.

Here’s what you need to know:

American states are pretty divided on gun control, even though mass shootings are on the rise
Gun control measures are unlikely to reach the US Congress, and have become increasingly scarce in most US states
Aside from several Democrat-controlled states, most haven’t taken any action on gun control in recent years, or have actually expanded gun rights.

Texas has some of the most gun-friendly laws in the US and has been the site of some of the deadliest shootings in the country over the past five years.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has repeatedly talked about mental health struggles among young people and said tougher gun laws in places such as New York and California are ineffective.

Democrat Beto O’Rourke, who is running against Mr Abbott, interrupted his news conference today, calling the tragedy “predictable”. Pointing his finger at Mr Abbott, he said: “This is on you until you choose to do something different. This will continue to happen.”
