In 2015, there were more days with a mass shooting than days without a mass shooting.

In 2015, there were more days with a mass shooting than days without a mass shooting.
December 2 marked the deadliest day of the year with the shooting in San Bernardino, California, that killed 14 and injured 17. There was also a second reported mass shooting on December 2 in Savannah, Georgia, that killed one and injured three.
Not a single month in 2015 was free from a mass shooting. Overall, 457 died from 353 mass shootings in 2015. June witnessed the greatest number of mass shootings of any given month, and June 13 saw the greatest number of mass shootings — six in all. And the year is not yet over.
Compared with 2014 fatalities, the 457 deaths in 2015 mark a 19.3 percent increase from the 383 in 2014. Additionally, there were 17 more mass shootings in 2015 than in 2014. But it's hard to identify a definitive trend when it comes to the frequency and deadliness of mass shootings, as 2013 remains deadlier than both 2014 and 2015 with 502 reported fatalities from 363 mass shootings.
These numbers come from Mass Shooting Tracker, a crowdsourced database that has tracked mass shootings since 2013. The database defines a mass shooting as an event in which four or more people were shot (not necessarily killed), and, as with any crowdsourced database, it’s likely missing data or has incomplete records. I used the database to create this calendar of all known mass shootings that have occurred in 2015.
