Tragedy strikes: Navy Yard and other mass shootings in 2013
Since the mass shootings in Newtown, Conn., left 28 people dead — many of them children — gun control has been a hot-button topic in the news. This week's mass shooting at a naval base in Washington, D.C., has captured the media's attention and again raises the question about gun violence.
In the nine months of 2013, there have been at least 16 mass shootings — four or more people killed, as defined by the FBI, though killing sprees covering several days and those directly related to drug and gang violence are often overlooked — using firearms in the United States. A total of 83 people have died from these firearm related massacres.
This list recount 16 such shootings. An infographic showing locations of the massacres can be seen at the Huffington Post.
