Mass Shootings Continue Around USA, Miami FL, San Jose CA, Boulder CO, Atlanta GA Where Next, Can You Protect Yourself? The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, do you have yours? There has been a surge in people buying a gun for the first time, with the pandemic, civil unrest and mass shootings cited as factors contributing to the spike. Meanwhile, the number of people shot in Jacksonville has dropped compared to last year. “People are beginning to understand that no one other than themselves will take responsibility for their safety,” said Eric Friday, general counsel for Florida Carry. Friday said it’s all out of fear. “Well, the first thing is important to know is get training,” Friday said. “We have a severe shortage of ammunition. You can save yourself a lot of ammunition by getting good training and learning how to properly use that firearm.” The FBI says one week in March had more than a million total firearm background checks. This as a wave of mass shootings were reported across the country. On Sunday morning in South Florida, 22 people were shot, two of them killed.

NYT Writes: A Partial List of Mass Shootings in the United States in 2021. The shootings never stopped during the coronavirus pandemic, they just became less public, researchers say. The Gun Violence Archive, which defines a mass shooting as one with four or more people injured or killed, not including the perpetrator, counted more than 600 such shootings in 2020, compared with 417 in 2019. That carnage has continued into 2021, with at least 232 mass shootings as of May 26. Including Wednesday’s shooting in San Jose, Calif, the archive, a nonprofit organization, has counted 15 mass murders, which it defines as four or more people killed, in 2021.
