According to a report from Breitbart, a report by The Hill posted on Thanksgiving Day has misleading data about the number of mass shootings that have occurred in the United States in 2022.

From The Hill, nonprofit Gun Violence Archive (GVA) information noted the U.S. had experienced 609 incidents in 2022, qualifying as mass shootings. Four or more people were involved in each shooting, not including the attacker. According to the GVA, the U.S. is on track to be at the 675 incident mark by the end of 2022. The stats for 2021 were 690 across the country, 610 in 2020, and 417 in 2019.

Researchers from GVA said, “The country is three mass shootings away from 2022, being the second-highest yearly total since we began tracking data.” Only two more shootings would put the country at 675 incidents by post-time on Thursday.

The GVA also reported the U.S. had reached violent death by gun at 39,816 so far in 2022. That breaks down to around 21,500 deaths by suicide and over 18,000 deaths attributed to homicides.

GVA researchers also reported, “GVA had never logged a month of 60+ mass shootings before 2020. It happened five times in 2020, six times in 2021, and now six times again this year.” Researchers also noted an average of 1.68 mass shootings occurred each day in 2022.

Breitbart points out that the GVA includes multiple reasons in their calculations of mass shootings, such as gang violence, double and triple homicides, drive-by shootings, murder-suicide, and firearm occurrences that do not have fatalities.

Breitbart also reports that according to the Rand Corporation, the standard set number used to determine mass shootings by the FBI’s 1980s definition of a mass murderer is someone who “kills four or more people in a single incident (not including himself).” This definition means that a “mass shooting” involves a single incident by a single gunman resulting in the death of four or more people.

The 2013 definition was altered slightly by the U.S. Congress when it defined a mass killing as a single incident resulting in the death of three or more people.

Regardless of which definition is used, “four or more deaths” or “three or more people dead,” Breitbart notes either definition does not agree with the claim of 600+ expected “mass shootings” in 2022 reported by GVA.
