US Counts Three Dozen Mass Shootings in First Month of Year

Mass Shootings

Less than one month into 2023, the United States has totaled 36 mass shootings, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
There have been over 44,000 fatalities due to 647 mass shootings in the US in 2022, the Archive reported, adding that the vast majority of shootings this year have occurred in the South, in states like Texas, Florida and Louisiana.

As people across the country beg for gun reform — families of gun violence victims have been calling on officials to tighten gun control legislation — mass shootings keep occurring at a frenetic pace.

In 2022, the Gun Violence Archive counted 647 mass shootings. Of those shootings, 21 involved five or more fatalities. The group recorded 690 mass shootings in 2021, with 28 involving four or more fatalities.
