How come mass shootings are getting deadlier?

For instance. The deadliest mass shooting in the 1960s killed 17 people

Deadliest mass shooting in 1970s: killed 13

Deadliest in the 1980s: 22

Deadliest in the 1990s: 24

Deadliest in the 2000s: 33

Deadliest in the 2010s: 59

Will a guy kill 100+ people in the 2020s?

      The fish in a barrel "Gun Free Zones" along with prescription drugs like SSRI/NSRI's are to blame.

    Use of rapid fire assault weapons and more severe brain

    damage from more powerful psych drugs which over 60% of mass shooters have been under the influence of during their rampages

    because liberals have too many gun free zones. we all should learn to use a gun and how to defend ourselves. A gun free zone is a unsafe zone. Guns saves life's.

    And? Your statistics are too small to begin with. You survey samples of at least 500 dead bodies per to make your claim.

    You claim because the numbers increased from 1-10 it has significance but it doesn't. It's still just random acts of body bagging where an individual has more of a chance of getting hit by an army tank on the freeway as dying from any small scale 'mass shootin'.

    You are simply not in touch with reality.

    Children are much ruder now than ever before in human history. And they quickly reach the age of Dylan Roof and have no sort of manners or respect instilled in them, not even in a church. These violent movies and video games make it far worse. People like to blame the munitions and arms manufacturers;however, the guns do not shoot themselves.

      But I do agree that movies and video games give kids bad influence

    Thanks to the press making a big thing about numbers, each time someones tries to do it they try to go for the record. We need to press to stop reporting names and other than 1-2 days of coverage, shut up about it and stop giving these people the fame they seek.

    More and more gun free zones making for ' sitting ducks ' unable to defend themselves .
