Serhat TUNAR -TDO- In the United States, 41 mass killings took place in 2019, according to research by Northeastern University. More than 210 people died in these massacres, the highest figure on record in this area since the 1970s. 33 of these mass killings were carried out with handguns and automatic rifles.
The study highlighted that in most cases of mass death, the killer knew the victims and was the result of a domestic dispute. He also said there were plenty of attacks on colleagues by drug gangs and people who had disagreements at work.
More than three or four deaths at the same time are considered massacres, the study said. According to this, while the mass killings in Texas, Dayton and Virginia Beach were known to the public for being in public areas, in most cases mass killings were not adequately covered in the media and therefore remained in the background.
