    Mass shootings toll exceeds 900 in past seven years

    More than 900 people died in mass shootings during the past seven years, and a majority of them were killed by people they knew, according to a USA TODAY analysis of gun-related slayings.

    The 934 deaths account for less than 1% of all gun-related homicides, and nearly half involve a suspect slaying his or her family members, the detailed examination shows. USA TODAY combed through FBI records and news accounts to identify 146 mass shootings since 2006 that matched the FBI definition of mass shooting, where four or more people were killed.

    A separate analysis of 56 mass shootings since 2009 provided to USA TODAY by a group of mayors promoting gun control reaches similar conclusions. More than half – 57% – of cases examined by Mayors Against Illegal Guns involved domestic violence. The group, co-founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is made up of more than 850 U.S. mayors

    I will give the article a thumbs up for saying that most gun crime is with pistols. It's not a bad article even if I don't agree with some of it.

    The way the media and anti-2nd amendment tards act you would think these mass shootings would be in the millions.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    See my signature line...
    Since your study specifically picked SEVEN Years, multiple the number of violent crimes, rapes, murders avoided by 7 and the number of home invaders driven off also by 7.
    What doesn't the media EVER report that? Why don't you give a damn? 7,000,000 violent assaults against people avoided and 3,500,000 home invaders driven off due to private gun ownership.

    If they would be honest and address the actual causes of the majority of gun crime (minority's in bad area's) I would actually support it. They are however to busy blaming guns that look scary and are responsible for the least amount of gun crime by far.

    I can't really say that I am surprised.They have to resort to lies and fear mongering to push their anti-2nd amendment agenda.All while pretending you are the one who is fear mongering for not trusting anti-2nd amendment politicians.

    Any mass shooting is tragic.

    Any shooting period is tragic, mass or not. It seems the more gun regulation crowed does not want to address the pistol/gang aspect. Which is 90% of our gun woes.

    Any death of an innocent person is tragic. The weapon used is irrelevant. It doesn't matter if that innocent person was shot,stabbed,ran over,beaten to death with a baseball bat,drowned or what ever.

    Well that does it. Expect congress to start writing laws banning multiple residence. One citizen per domicile. It's the only way to be sure.

    Well...not if it's gang-on-gang shooting, as long as they leave the decent citizens alone.
