James Alan Fox: Umpqua shooting - a tragedy, not a trend
At USAtoday.com, James Alan Fox discusses mass shootings and concludes:
"According to a careful analysis of data on mass shootings (using the widely accepted definition of at least four killed), the Congressional Research Service found that there are, on average, just over 20 incidents annually. More important, the increase in cases, if there was one at all, is negligible. Indeed, the only genuine increase is in hype and hysteria."
