We're gonna need a new definition of "mass shooting." Too many of these are happening in non-gun-free zones lately. It make the pro-gun guys, like Bruce Krafft look bad for insisting that ONLY Loughner did his thing in a non-gun-free zone.
Fact #7: There have been 61 mass shootings in the U.S. since 1982. The killer used a legally obtained weapon in 49 of them.
And 60 of those 61 mass murders have occurred in supposedly “gun-free” zones.
Mother Jones put together a nice display from which we can glean several facts. Number one, they do not only happen at gun-free zones, and two, the shooters usually are lawful gun owners, and three, no armed good guys were able to stop them even if they were present.
