Dopo la sparatoria al Highland Park, nello Stato americano di Illinois, la Giornata dell’Indipendenza si è trasformata, da allegria in caos. I cittadini in lutto hanno commemorato le vittime con candele e cartelli contro la violenza nel luogo della tragedia.

Un caso di violenza armata che purtroppo non è isolato, e che dimostra i limiti della legge statunitense sul controllo delle armi nel proteggere la popolazione.
