U.S. sees at least 11 mass shootings over Memorial Day weekend – The Washington Post

After a shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Tex., that claimed the lives of 19 children and two teachers last week, many politicians, public figures and gun-control advocates said the U.S. government should ensure mass shootings could not happen again.

But mass shootings have already happened again — and again. At least 14 mass shootings have taken place across the United States since Tuesday, from California to Arizona to Tennessee.

This Memorial Day weekend alone — spanning Saturday, Sunday and the federal holiday on Monday — there have been at least 11 mass shootings.

At least seven people have been killed and 49 injured in the mass shootings over the holiday weekend, according to GVA and local news sources. Since the Uvalde shooting last Tuesday, at least 10 people have been killed and 61 injured in mass shootings.

Brian Stelter, chief media correspondent and news anchor at CNN, interrupted a broadcast Sunday about the response to the mass shooting in Uvalde to tell viewers about another — in Tennessee.

“Mass killings like Buffalo and Uvalde become national news, but many mass shootings do not. They just end up being local stories,” Stelter said, in a clip that has been viewed over 334,000 times on Twitter.

  1. Are there any efforts made to find out what is the reason behind/cause of these people flipping out? There must be something basically wrong with the societies they live in. Racism “only” accounts for part of them.

    1. No one has any good theories or how to spot them. The very young ones have very low self-image and may well be suicidal – they can be famous for a minute before being killed by police. Even the racially motived ones seem to suffer from mental collapse/explosion of some sort. But not predictable whether they will just kill themselves or others and themselves in same act. What is known is that if they have less access to semi-automatic rifles and handguns, there are fewer mass killings 1994-2004 ban on public sale of attack rifles worked. When that was allowed to end, the mass shootings increased. Since that time tons of money from National Rifle Association and Putin money passed through NRA has been given to politician’s campaigns to support sales of guns.

  2. And thank you for explaining the situation to me in detail.
    It seems like the weapons are just the means, but the cause lies in their family/society background.

    1. Other types of suicide come from similar sources. But a gun is much “easier” to use for killing self and/or others.
