The eleven-year-old, who once featured in an anti-gun violence video, has died after being shot by the very thing she had once campaigned against.

Because, just 4 years ago, the youngster became the face of the movement to end all gun violence in this country.

Now, as you will all be aware, gun violence is a real issue here in the States.

With the easy accessibility of firearms and the ludicrously slack restrictions, pretty much anyone can get their hands on a gun these days.

And why is that? Well, some people fee “the right to bear arms” is more important than the right to live safely in their community.

The Mass Shooting Tracker is a crowd-sourced database of U.S. mass shootings, with the website defining a “mass shooting” as a single outburst of violence in which 4 or more people are shot.

It’s time for our government to wake up.

Because the number of mass shootings across the U.S. in 2019 outpaced the number of days in the year, according to a gun violence research group.

On average, 100 people in America are killed by guns every day, while a further 100,000 people are shot every year.  

But, thankfully, these people are becoming a minority.

Across the last few years, thousands upon thousands of people have taken to the streets to protest violence and death caused by firearms.

And this brings us back to the story of Anisa Scott.

The video, which was produced by Rafael Charles Ragland, the father of Anisa’s younger sister, focused on the harsh realities of our gun laws, and the consequences these laws hold for the children of Chicago, where Anisa was from.

Where she pleads: “God, can you make it better?”

But, little did she know that her own life would eventually be cut short by these senseless weapons.

Last week, Anisa was fatally shot in the head after being caught in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting in her new home of Wisconsin.

When nineteen-year-old, Perion Carreon and sixteen-year-old, Andre Brown approached and opened fire.

But, devastatingly, Anisa was the one who was shot.

They found Anisa, still sat up and strapped into her seat, with a wound to the head.

But, sadly, the youngster could not be saved.

As well as attempted first-degree intentional homicide, for allegedly targeting the driver of the vehicle Anisa was in at the time.

Sharing a photo of Anisa on Twitter, she wrote: “Anisa Scott, my baby was 11 & was shot on August 11th. Tomorrow she will be unplugged from life support at 11:11 am. Everything hurts. I can’t wrap my head around why this could ever happen to such a sweet, innocent soul. I love you forever. #JusticeforAnisa #EndGunViolence.”

Madison Mayor, Satya Rhodes-Conway, was quick to address the devastating death. “We mourn the tragic loss of Anisa Scott, and work together to stem gun violence,” she said. “This has to stop. I addressed the work the City is doing to address this on multiple fronts recently.”

He wrote: “Anisa I want you to know people know and are saying your name everywhere. Rest up sweetheart and please ask God to lead me in the right hands and direct my path… Thank you for being a part of my life I will always love you, my junior director. I promise I will write something for you.”

And a unity march to celebrate Anisa’s life has been organized for the days leading up to it.
