After yesterday's shooting at a high school in Florida, a new video has brought home the true reality of America's gun problem.

The video is just the latest to be uploaded to Daily Gun Deaths, a Twitter account which posts fresh footage each day to show the latest nationwide death toll from gun violence.

The video shows that, following the Valentine's Day shooting in Parkland, 1,793 people have been killed due to guns in America this year alone.

The incident is the 18th school shooting to have taken place in America this year, meaning on average there is one every 60 hours.
