There's a Mass Shooting Almost Every Day in the US

There's a Mass Shooting Almost Every Day in the US”

The mass shooting that killed 58 people and injured some 500 others here on Sunday is the deadliest such attack in modern United States history.

The killings, which occurred in Las Vegas, claimed almost 60 lives and wounded more than 500, when a gunman opened fire on a crowd at a country music concert from a 32-floor hotel room. Jason Aldean was on stage as Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nevada, rained gunfire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the Strip.

To give you an idea of just how many guns are floating around the nation with the most mass shootings, take a look at this.

Losers, loners and lunatics are all behind the mass shootings bringing America to its knees, and they're nearly all men, so why not just stop granting firearms licences to male persons, Candace Sutton asks.

In the numb days following a mass shooting, experts pick over the motives and minds of the males who are often not around to be questioned or forensically examined. Notably, three of the top four on the list were committed in the past five years, and the majority took place at soft targets, including restaurants, schools, and churches. Mateen has pleaded not guilty.

"Even the Sandy Hook massacre of school children did not move them to action", he said, referring to the 2012 mass shooting in which a deranged gunman opened fire in an elementary school, killing dozens of people, including children. That is unfortunate because there is a vast middle ground to be found in reducing gun violence while also protecting the legitimate rights of gun owners.

On April 16, 2007 Virginia Tech senior Seung-Hui Cho, 23, open fired on campus. Identified as Adam Lanza, the gunman shot dead his mother before arriving at the school. He killed 32 people and injured another 23 people. Ten of Hennard's victims were killed by single shots to the head. He killed a total of 28 people and injured 2 others. He committed suicide before being arrested. An hour after the shootings, a police sharpshooter killed Huberty, reported the San Diego Tribune. "Hunting for humans", according to the New York Daily News. Gun control advocates also believe that military assault-style weapons - which are attainable for many USA citizens - should be either banned or face stricter regulations.

Forty nine people were killed and 50 were wounded at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Many say Las Vegas police & SWAT team saved many lives in this active shooter situation.

A lone gunman killed his wife and mother before opening fire from the University of Texas Tower, killing 14 people and wounding 31. Maleen killed 49 innocent people and injured 53 others.

On the day of the attack, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents later confirmed, the couple had researched ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi online.

If that seems like splitting hairs or dismissing history, Fox offers another line of thinking for why we tend to think of mass shootings in a modern sense: Our own experiences and, perhaps, our own fear.

Patrick Henry Sherrill, 44, was a part-time postman who returned to his office a day after receiving a "poor performance" review. Authorities later determined Sherrill was angry that he might lose his job.
