This study shows the mass shooting deaths by state…..By state. Not by city where the data would be more useful, and where we all know what the story would be….large Urban areas rather than small towns….
It also hints but does not say what the demographics are….the race/ethnicity/poverty level of the shooters OR the victims…..But it does point out that there were no mass shootings in either Hawaii or Alaska….You can draw your own conclusions.
It is interesting that, although they try to correlate gun laws to shootings, there seems to be an inverse effect….the tighter the gun restrictions the (marginally) more shootings…but not enough to make any real conclusions. What they DON’T do in this study is look at any of the other factors. Race (and percentage of that race in the surrounding area), economic level, education level or ethnicity. These are all greater factors than gun laws.
Kinda hiding the truth, really.
It isn’t like there aren’t mass shooting at least weekly on the south side of Chicago, in primarily black and poor neighborhoods, usually related to a bar or a party or other gathering…..or the most dangerous place at 2:30 Am, “jus’ stannin onna cornah, minin’ my own bidnes’…” And there are nearly zero in a tiny downstate town like DeLand or Ogden or Taylorville. But lump all the towns in a state together to hide the real truth.
