That graph is including the most recent one. At the navy yard shooting which is one of the most gun restricted areas.
Not knowing the other details of this graph I can only speculate.

But im sure most of this happens in gun free areas. Just like Sandyhook and newtown

Plus I noticed  D.C is at the top of the list. Place with the most gun control.

I don't live a big city or anything, but even if someone were to walk into Walmart by Ferris State here and start shooting, they would be dropped pretty quick.  Seems like everyone around my area carries or has one in the car.  Chicago or D.C. on the other hand...

We will always ignore the real problem, but that's nothing new. We've swept it under the rug for this long, let's just keep sweeping, eh? It's what we're best at.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Suzanna Gratia Hupp explains meaning of 2nd Amendment!

Quote

Hupp and her parents were having lunch at the Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen in 1991 when the Luby's massacre commenced. The gunman shot 50 people and killed 23, including both of Hupp's parents. Hupp later expressed regret about deciding to remove her gun from her purse and lock it in her car lest she risk possibly running afoul of the state's concealed weapons laws; during the shootings, she reached for her weapon but then remembered that it was "a hundred feet away in my car."[4] Her father, Al Gratia, tried to rush the gunman and was shot in the chest. Hupp escaped through a broken window and believed that her mother, Ursula Gratia, was behind her. Actually however, her mother went to her mortally-wounded husband's aid and was then shot in the head.
As a survivor of the Luby's massacre, Hupp testified across the country in support of concealed-handgun laws. She said that if there had been a second chance to prevent the slaughter, she would have violated the Texas law and carried the handgun inside her purse into the restaurant.[5] She testified across the country in support of concealed handgun laws, and was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1996.[6] The concealed-weapons bill was signed by then-Governor George W. Bush.[7]

Im curious what do you think the real problem is?


I always look at is as people will kill people no matter what you do

Most violence happens in poverty areas, when you have nonething to loose you do stuff like that. So I would count that as the main problem.

The real problem is that people with a obvious brain damage get to keep and or buy guns or have easy access to them because a relative/friend does nothing to safeguard his armory against theft.

Nice find....you will always have those that like to be balanced on the fence...never contributing...never really disputing anything...they feel their power by being the opposing voice....let it go...it's a good find.  They need to find a side and stick to it....if you are a democrap,....just be a farging democrap...e repug...just do it....this back and forth...i can always oppose you is starting to get old....ok...that's a lie...the I can always oppose is retarded and needs to find a life and a direction....it is worthless as it now presents itself....

I am a fan of personal liberty, freedom and responsibility....these clowns will never take a stand...might hurt their likes....which they apparently live for

I think this post is absolutely wrong.  You don't have to pick a side and stick to it.  I don't let democrats or republicans tell me how to think, I am quite capable making my own decisions on issues.  Also, posting on an internet forum is not "taking a stand".

Picking a side and sticking to it is exactly why our government is such a mess.

Somebody WAS armed, thus all the shooting parts.

True. But you must also consider that there is a huge difference in homicide rates between similar nations. Saying 'people are gonna kill, whatcha gonna do?' ignores that fact that Americans kill each other in much higher numbers than other similar countries. Gun control debates are a smokescreen to this issue. Guns are already everywhere in American society so you've got the situation where the only way for decent people to be able to ensure their own safety is to be armed themselves.

We could have a debate about how the US got into that situation in the first place. But that wouldn't be helpful either. The question is: what can you do about it? Accepting the status quo seem to be a cop out.
