Mass Killings in the USA
Another Inconvenient Chart

Look at the history of mass shootings in the USA.

Notice anything odd?

Between the years 1934 and 1965 -- over 30 consecutive years--there was precisely one mass shooting in the entire country, and that was a military incident directed against German POWs.

The 1965 incident was a single sniper attack killing three people.
The 1966 event was the infamous
University of Texas massacre
in Austin, caused by a deranged sniper with a brain tumor.
1968?  A police action killing three. 
Then all the way to 1972 with the
Fountain Valley (USVI) massacre,
a "kill all de white people" action where blacks slaughtered eight whites.
1974? Another sniper, killing three.

The 1934 incident was a bizarre small-town political dispute killing five:

The Kelayres massacre
The Kansas City massacre, a gangland killing of three cops and one fugitive.
Before that?  The infamous 1929
Saint Valentine's Day Massacre.

Before that? Not so much, apparently.

What's the point here?  It's that before the late 1960s, and largely before the mid-1970s,
mass killings were virtually unheard of in the United States.

And yes, this accounting is for gun killings, but the vast majority of mass killings in the USA are accomplished by firearms.  (The second-most common cause is smoke inhalation from deliberately-set fires.)

But look what we have today:

Since 2006, there have been more than 200 mass killings in the United States.

"Well-known images from Newtown, Aurora and Virginia Tech capture the nation’s attention, but similar bloody scenes happen with alarming frequency and much less scrutiny.

USA TODAY examined FBI data -- which defines a mass killing as four or more victims -- as well as local police records and media reports to understand mass killings in America. They happen far more often than the government reports, and the circumstances of those killings -- the people who commit them, the weapons they use and the forces that motivate them -- are far more predictable than many might think."


Read the details at the link above.  An astonishing number of the mass killings are of white people, by black killers.  The second-largest number of killings is of black people by other black people.  Then, killings by immigrants, usually illegal.
Not quite what the mass media normally tells us.


Note that there were isolated but somewhat spectacular spree killings: Howard Unruh in the "Walk of Death" in 1949; and teenage killers Charles Raymond Starkweather, 19 and Caril Ann Fugate, 14 over a period of eight days in Jan. 1958 (their story inspired the movie “Badlands” starring Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen and the song “Nebraska” by Bruce Springsteen.)

In 1900, Louisiana Black Separatist Robert Charles shot 27 white people, killing seven, including four policemen. Many more were killed in the riots which followed, and which were a major impetus for racial segregation in the decades which followed.

And in 1927, the worst-ever school massacre in Bath Township, Mich. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2012/12/17/worst-school-massacre-was-bombing-in-1927/
