There have been more mass shootings in the U.S., than days in 2019!

The number of mass shootings across the U.S. so far in 2019 has outpaced the number of days this year. This puts 2019 on pace to be the first year since 2016 with an average of more than one mass shooting a day. As of Sunday, which was the 216th day of the year, there have been 251 mass shootings in the U.S. The Gun Violence Archive defines a mass shooting as any incident in which at least four people were shot, excluding the shooter.

The toll of 251 mass shootings include five high-profile rampages in the past eight days, in which more than 100 people were shot:

  • A shooting in a historic district of Dayton, Ohio, with 9 people killed and 27 injured.
  • A shooting at Walmart in El Paso, Texas, with 20 people killed and 26 wounded. It was the deadliest shooting of the year.
  • A shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in the San Francisco Bay Area, with three people killed and 15 injured.
  • A shooting at a Brooklyn block party, with one person killed and 11 injured.
  • A shooting at a Walmart in Southaven, Mississippi, with two people killed and two injured.

Sick of mass shootings? Get up and actually do something about it. You haven't even begun to fight.
