...Expect up to 4 more mass shootings this year, Northwestern expert says

Were on a straight, upward trajectory, said Lori Post, who is working on a study of massacres in the U.S.

Americans still reeling from mass shootings in Texas and Ohio can expect more carnage this year, according to research by Northwestern University.

The country will likely see between two and four more mass shooting events before the end of the year if current trends continue and no action is taken to combat the problem, said Lori Post, a sociologist and epidemiologist who studies mass shootings at the universitys Feinberg School of Medicine.

Were on a straight, upward trajectory, Post said in an interview late last week.

Last year, the country experienced eight mass shooting events the most in a single year since 1982 when Posts dataset begins. Post said she uses the FBIs original definition of a mass shooting as a single event in which four or more people are killed in a public place.

The country has recorded six events already with nearly five months left, according to Posts accounting.

That was the sad thing about my study. Were putting together a database ... and I had to leave room for more massacres, she said.

Post said her study is not complete, but she decided to release some of the data trends shes discovered in light of this months mass shootings....

No comment on what "action" will slow the trend?  Was there any research into the role of psych meds, leftist manifestos, etc?

So the wizard predicts "up to 4" more mass shootings this year.  That's a spread of zero through four.   Sheer genius!  She'll likely be right!

Real genius there. There are more than 4 weekends left in Chicago so surely there will be more than 4 mass shootings.
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Vote Leftocrat.  Early and Often.   That will solve the problem.
