12 people were killed by a gunman who opened fire in a city building. At least four other victims were hospitalized. This is the deadliest mass shooting in the US since November. When will it stop? It can not keep happening here.

America’s most recent deadly mass shooting happened inside a municipal center in Virginia Beach this time, and various vigils and mass memorials are being held this weekend.

After a longtime public utility employee shot his co-workers Friday, killing 12 people and wounding a few others. The heavily armed shooter died in an exchange of gunfire with four officers who rushed into the building.

His name has not yet been released because officials do not want to give publicity to the shooter person's name, so he will be referred to as the suspect because our focus now is the dignity and respect to the victims and to their families.

But when will Congress do something substantially significant concerning gun control? Contact your elected representatives now.

The shooting at a municipal building in Virginia Beach, Va., on Friday, was the first of 2019 in the U.S. that led to the deaths of more than 10 people. This is the fifth consecutive year a shooter has killed at least 10 people in a single incident.
