Mass killings in America are becoming more frequent, and many even go unreported.

There have been more than 200 mass killings in the U.S. since 2006, according to FBI data and police reports. The data indicates that many of the mass killings aren’t classified as such if they do not meet particular government qualifications with a certain amount of victims. As a result of under reporting and error, FBI data is only 57 percent accurate — meaning there are far more mass killings happening around the U.S.

In America alone, mass killings happen every two weeks.
