US Firearms Mass-Murders 2021


1 min read

The Atlanta shootings were the first public US mass-murder attack in almost  a year


The United States was given much needed reprieve from public shooting attacks last year owing to the Coronavirus pandemic leading to public gatherings being banned and stay-at-home orders being put into place. Domestic mass-murders however still remained. Nonetheless, incidents of firearm mass-murders were still down significantly on the previous year.

2021 however looks to be a mixed bag. With mass-vaccinations taking place across the country and with businesses and venues beginning to reopen this could lead to far more opportunities to carry out a public assault. However, given that 2020 was such a quiet year in comparison and given that public mass-murders are statistically very rare there is still optimism within the country that mass-murders will continue to decline.
