I am so confused right now, it seems every time that I turn on the TV or get on Twitter there is information about a shooting somewhere in America. I figured it was time to break this down, so the information that is out there would be in a clear way. I will include links to the sites that I go to for the information when possible.
First off: From the 1st of January 2016 to the time the article was written on June 12th, 2016 there had been 164 days in the year and 133 Mass Shootings. (http://www.vox.com/a/mass-shootings-calendar-june-2016 ) Now what the article considers mass shooting is where a single event where more than 4 people were shot. (Not everyone at the attacks has passed on.) Another site that I found let me put in my own search information: so I put in the last week, July 1st 2016 to July 7th 2016, more than 4 victims and got scared real fast. There had been 5 in the time frame that I put in. (http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/ ) And at the top of the information section that I got had this disclaimer ‘ SEARCH RESULTS
Thanks for your interest in our statistics! Unfortunately, we must limit result sets for the general public. If you would like more information or the full result set, please send an email with your name, organization, project and needs to firstname.lastname@example.org. ‘ which means there is more information out there that we don’t have.
Second off: Some people are going to say that I am an anti – weapons person and that isn’t it. I am a person who feels that people need to find other ways to deal with their anger or whatever the problems are. There are other ways to deal with their temper or what is bothering them.
Third off: If a country like Australia can cause their gun related mass shootings to go to ZERO what is so different with the US? The article that I found was from CNN on June 23, 2016. (http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/23/health/australia-gun-law-reform-study/ )
