Four children and three adults have been found dead from gunshot wounds in Perth, Australia Friday morning. The police department is not actively looking for a shooter, as it may possibly have been a murder-suicide, although not confirmed. According to officials, this is Australia’s worst mass shooting in over 20 years since 1996. The previous mass shooting in Australia was in 1996 when 35 people were killed in Port Arthur, Tasmania. Since then, Australia has significantly strengthened its gun laws.
