Reality Check: Gun Violence In The US

Have You Read Chicago's Gun Trace Report

A total of 530 people have died in mass shootings in 2017.

Organizers and members of groups like Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence found it upsetting to learn incidents, such as the one in Texas, could be the result of system failure or human negligence. So, if all countries have mental health problems, why are we different?

The Gun Violence Archive lists itself as a not-for-profit organization that documents gun violence and gun crime nationally.

"We have to improve our background check system to stop violent criminals from obtaining firearms". The profile that's discovered is nearly always one of a socially isolated male whose background involves domestic violence.

18 years ago, 13 people were killed in school shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado, and it provoked weeks if not months of coverage on the origins of gun violence.

The mass shootings that attract most attention are those that happen in public places, ending the lives of apparently random victims.

None of these attacks directly stemmed from domestic violence, but each shooter had an alleged history of violence toward women. However, the fact that these mass shooters were never convicted of domestic abuse meant that they could legally purchase firearms.

Under a 1996 federal law called the Lautenberg Amendment, anyone convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence should be barred from gun ownership. In the case of the October 31 vehicle attack in lower Manhattan that happened to take place near a school, an event that wasn't a mass shooting at all was initially described as one. But the abuser must have been able to plead their case at a hearing, and the gun ban is limited to orders protecting abusers' intimate partners, and their own or their partners' children. In California, for instance, temporary or emergency restraining orders, issued without a hearing, are enough to prohibit gun ownership.
