Mass Shootings in the US
Mass shootings include a variety of gun casualties. There is no widely accepted definition and exact inclusion criteria are contested. One meaning is the act of public gun violence—when a gunman is killed at least four people except gang shootings, family violence or criminal attacks funded by a group. One analysis found that between 1966 and 2012 almost one-third of the world’s public mass shootings happened in the US (90 out of 292 events). The Washington Post reported 163 mass shootings during 1967 and June 2019, using a general pattern.
Some reports show that there were more mass shootings by the United States than any other country. Hunters usually die either subsequently by suicide, or by cops or bystanders are either detained or shot. However, between 2000 and 2016 mass firefights represented less than 0.2% of all mass shootings in the U.S.
