A potentially handy reference:
Mass Shooting Tracker
Cited lists of known mass shootings

BUT - such lists are not complete ... :>(

"Because of political pressure, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention research into gun violence has been frozen for nineteen years, and because of a law pushed by the gun lobby, the ATF can’t release gun-trace data to anyone but law enforcement. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is legally obliged to destroy all approved gun-purchaser records within 24 hours."

Portions of humankind are violent by nature; giving them access to any weapons just increases the chances of them being used by those with a thug / military / aggressive / violent tendency.

Shared everywhere to spread awareness.

We have gun laws, bans on assault weapons since the thirties and back ground checks. The honest citizens here are not the problem. Terrorists, criminals and unstable people all will find a way to get weapons. We can have 500 more laws and it won't do any good. Laws are only for the honest citizens who obey the laws, the terrorists, criminals and mentally ill or people filled with hate will continue to kill.
