After Sandy Hook, we said never again. And then we let
mass shootings happen.
So far in 2019, 96 people have been killed and 202 wounded in 63 mass shootings.
Mass shooting data comes from the Gun Violence Archive, which defines mass shootings as events in which four or more people, excluding the shooter, were shot but not necessarily killed at the same general time and location. GVA’s definition differs from other definitions of mass shootings, which may require that four or more people are killed or exclude certain shootings, such as gang-related and domestic events.
