A law signed in 2013 signed by Congress, The Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act of 2012, defines “mass killing” as one resulting in at least three victims, including the perpetrator. A broader definition by the Gun Violence Archive is that “four or more shot or killed, not including the shooter”. This definition is often used by the press and non-profit organizations, with the perpetrator of mass murder referred to as the active shooter.

The United States has more mass shootings than any other nation in the world. The most recent one occurred on February 14, 2018 at Mary Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed and fourteen more were taken to hospitals.
