Too Much Bloodshed

Every year in the U.S., an average of more than 100,000 people are shot, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Additionally, one person is killed by a firearm every 17 minutes, 87 people are killed during an average day, and 609 are killed every week. While the gun violence and firearms debate continues, BET.com takes a look at some of the major gun violence headlines of 2013.Dominique Zonyéé
