Everytown For Gun Safety conducted a comprehensive analysis of every mass shooting between January 2009 and July 2014 that was identiﬁable through FBI data and media reports. This report describes the
110 MASS SHOOTINGS — ALMOST TWO PER MONTH — THAT OCCURRED IN 36 STATES
in the nearly six-year period. Each description includes the location of the shooting, number of people killed and/or injured, and information on the shooter, gun(s), ammunition, and gun purchase, where available.The FBI deﬁnes “mass shooting” as any incident where at least four people were murdered with a gun. Everytown For Gun Safety reviewed mass shootings in the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports from 2009-2012, the most recent data available, and searched the media for further details about these incidents as well as for mass shootings that occurred in 2013–2014. This survey includes every shooting we identiﬁed in which at least four people were murdered with a gun. And the ﬁndings reveal a diﬀerent portrait of mass shootings in America than conventional wisdom might suggest.
