January 25, 2023 - A menos de un mes del inicio de 2023, los tiroteos masivos han reclamado más de 70 vidas en Estados Unidos – un país con más armas que personas
There have already been 40 mass shootings in 2023 in the United States, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
A mass shooting is deemed to have occurred if a minimum of four people have been shot, either wounded or killed, not including the shooter who may also have been killed or injured in the incident.
U.S. mass shootings have been on the rise since the Gun Violence Archive began records in 2014, a year which saw 273 incidents. In 2021 there were 690 mass shootings – a rise of more than 250%. The following year there were 647 mass shootings.
2023 could become the worst year so far. Less than a month into the year, U.S. mass shootings have already killed 73 people and injured 165 others – more incidents than any other January on record.
