fatalities in mass

fatalities in mass shootings. This percentage would have been even higher if the recent shootings had been included in the database. Assault weapons were used in eight of the ten shooting with the highest fatalities and their popularity with mass shooters has been increasing over time. Types of Locations – Because of the horrific nature of shootings at schools and places worship, they dominate our consciousness and the media’s coverage. However, school shootings make up less than 10% of the mass shooting incidents and fatalities. Those at places of worship and colleges are about 6% each. Shootings at retail locations, restaurants and bars make the largest portion, accounting for a third of all incidents and fatalities. At just over 20%, employment settings are the second most common location where mass shootings occur. As I suspect you are beginning to see, there is a maddening variability in mass shootings. There are far fewer common elements than I was expecting. This variability makes these events difficult to understand and, as a result, harder to fashion policies that would reduce their incidence. Next time, I will look at some of the common characteristics of the shooters themselves, which I think will help begin to bring into focus something about the type of individual that commits these heinous acts. 2023 CHEVROLET TAHOE PPVs ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH OUR BAILMENT POOL!
