So far this year, there have been at least 355 mass shooting incidents. There have been 336 days.
That’s according to the Mass Shooting Tracker. The project tracks incidents in which four or more people are shot — but not necessarily killed — in a spree or setting.
The data is compiled by the subreddit GunsAreCool, which tracks gun violence in America.
