As he spewed racist, anti-semitic slurs, a gunman shot and killed 11 people peacefully practicing their religion in a Pittsburgh Synagogue on October 27, 2018. This is the deadliest attack ever on jews in the United States. The gunman, Robert Bowers, targeted Jews online, and as he was receiving medical care, told a SWAT officer that he wanted all jews to die.
The United States often preaches unity and mourning after a tragic event like this. People on the right will ask for more armed guards, and those on the left will ask for stricter gun control. With no compromise or legislative action, these deadly attacks only continue to occur, with the number of mass shootings in the United States in 2018 already surpassing 300.
