#America_Bleeding - How Many Mass Shootings Have There Been This Year?

Dec 4, 2015

Almost every American state has seen mass casualties from public shootings this year … and 2015 isn’t even over yet. 

According to the latest crime compilations, those massacres have so far killed about 460 people and injured over 1300 more.

Wednesday’s terror attack at a California community center is considered the deadliest since the mass murder of first-graders and their teachers at Sandy Hook by Adam Lanza in 2012.

The San Bernardino slayings are unique in the history of such bloody events, however, in that a woman allegedly took part in that assault -- mass shooters are typically males, acting alone.

The same day Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire on a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center, a Georgia gunman also shot down four people; killing one and wounding three others.

This week’s bloodshed then brings the total number of America’s public shootings for 2015 up to 355 already. Or slightly more than one a day.

Keep in mind, though, that only such gun-related incidents which involve four or more victims are actually tallied in mass shooting statistics.

Many similar acts of violence are simultaneously occurring throughout the U.S., but, due to their lower body-counts, are falling off the radar.
