Most mass shootings are drive-byes? I would like to see a source on that one.

The most accepted definition of a mass shooting, then, is as a single incident in which four or more people are shot or killed.

...“We’ve become inured to the day-to-day gun violence you see happening in urban communities,” Thomas adds. “A lot of Americans are not necessarily thinking about it.” Mass shootings happen all the time in the United States—particularly within poor Black inner-city communities.

A new analysis of 358 mass shootings in America in 2015 found that three-quarters of the victims whose race could be identified were black.

Roughly a third of the incidents with known circumstances were drive-by shootings or were identified by law enforcement as gang-related. Another third were sparked by arguments, often among people who were drunk or high.

Sorry, looks like it’s one-third were gang-related. Another third are spontaneous arguments. But the kind that make the news and that we think about when we use the term “mass shooting”, that of a lone gunman deliberately and indiscriminately mowing down a bunch of strangers, makes up only a fraction of mass shooting incidents in the U.S.

I don’t think this is correct. I can’t recall any of the mass shootings in recent years being drive-by shootings. They’re in malls, schools, places of work, homes, that kind of thing.

I know, nobody died in this school shooting from Rigby, Idaho. The scary part is that the shooter is a female in grade 6! She shot and injured three students. https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world...out&li=AAggNb9
