‘The total number of fatalities from mass shootings since some point in the 1980s is roughly the same as…’
…the total number of homicides in Chicago this year (500).
On the other hand, most of the victims in Chicago are minorities. Most have criminal records. Indeed, a large fraction of the Chicago victims are drug dealers who might well have been the shooters themselves if only they’d shown more initiative (or better marksmanship).
