2020 is a bad year to hold up as normal, the country was in lockdown. Go with 2019. But this time, do your own research, instead of grabbing a meme at Racists R Us.

I wonder why?

And AGAIN, you chose a meme that only picks some of the shooters.  (I edited my post to you after I decided to research your meme for facts).

You chose 98 people out of 417.

And what did so many of them have in common, I wonder?

Followed by blaming Obama, then a picture of Kamala Harris.

If ONLY I could find a pattern here...

Frankly, I do not believe your 417 figure accurately captures the number of mass shooting (four or more killed). Sorry, but we did not average more than one a day in 2019 or any other year.

Here's one for you . . .

It's not "my" figure.

There were more mass shootings than days in 2019

There were more mass shootings across the U.S. in 2019 than there were days in the year, according to a gun violence research group. 2019 had the highest number of mass shootings in any year since the research group started keeping track. 

By the end of 2019, there were 417 mass shootings in the U.S., according to data from the nonprofit Gun Violence Archive (GVA), which tracks every mass shooting in the country. Thirty-one of those shootings were mass murders. 

GVA defines a mass shooting as any incident in which at least four people are shot, excluding the shooter. The group also tracks mass murders as defined by the FBI — incidents in which at least four people are killed. The FBI does not have a formal definition of a mass shooting.

Wikipedia has more, at 434, but it includes the Stanford University criteria of 3 people getting shot as a mass shooting.
