Explain what you mean, here.

I have attempted to locate that information, but I was unable to find it. I don't believe we have statistics on that.

About 1 to 2%.

Yes, we have a mass shooting epidemic. On Christmas Eve, a guy in New York called 911 to report a fire in his home, then shot several firemen as they stormed into his house.

When the NRA via Wayne LaPierre was speaking a few days ago on "everything but guns is to blame for shootings" speech, a guy was walking the highway in Pennsylvania and shooting at cars as they drove by.

Slate has a running total of all mass shooting victims since Newtown. 160 people have died, as of me posting right now.

Click through. Enjoy. And tell me this isn't an epidemic we have on our hands.
