US mass shootings on the rise

Late last month, an 18-year-old man opened fire at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, killing 19 students and two teachers. 

The massacre in Uvalde and a mass shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York that left 10 people dead, have prompted new efforts in US Congress to enact stricter federal gun control laws.

This is a developing story.
