    UNDATED (KTHV) - Jonesboro, Columbine, and Newtown are just a few of the shootings we'll likely remember for life. Since 1992, there have been 385 shootings in America.

    Some consisted of children getting caught in gang crossfire, some were personal vendettas, others were the results of suicide, and the motives will forever be unknown in others.

    It's shootings like those that have several Arkansas lawmakers looking for changes in gun laws.

    Arkansas' 89th General Assembly will convene Monday. During this session, gun control is expected to be a highly-debated topic. Proposals include letting Arkansans carry guns in holsters and allowing teachers and professors to carry a weapon in schools. Some Arkansas legislators are considering allowing more people to carry guns legally.
