Mass Casualty Shootings in 2023 (YTD)
For those unimpressed by mass shootings unless they involve 4 or more fatalities, here are the stats for mass casualty events so far this year.

Like mass shootings with 4 or more victims including injuries, fewer mass murders are committed with assault rifles than other firearms, but their death counts are higher. Click the datawrapper link to see the interactive version of these maps.
