Half of the deadliest mass shootings in American history have occurred in the past six years
Laura Conaway REPORTS:
If you consider the deadliest mass shootings in American history — at this point, shootings with 12 or more fatalities — you’ll find the first one happens in 1949. A deranged lone gunman’s “Walk of Death” in Camden, New Jersey, claimed the lives of 13 people.
The next one happened in 1966, when a lone gunman climbed the bell tower at the University of Texas and began shooting. He killed 16 people. The first half of the list of these horrible shootings…took place over half a century. The second half took place over just six years, from 2007 until yesterday [Monday].
