Fusion's Jorge Ramos on what he learned covering the 2016 race

These are the stats on gun violence in the U.S. you need to know about

A recent study showed that the more guns available per capita in a country, the more likely mass shootings are to take place in that country. Fusion’s Daniel Rivero said there’s no coincidence that the U.S. has had the most mass shootings than any other country; it also has more guns—about 200 million more, to be precise—available to its citizens.

This summer alone the U.S. has seen around 100 mass shooting, Rivero says. Whether it was during church services, a movie theater, or a military recruitment center, guns were involved.

In this edition of Real Talk, Rivero discusses why it’s important to recognize the connection and the reasons behind these tragic events.
