The Everytown figure of 18 school shootings this year is actually quite conservative compared to the Grio site's claim of more than 50 mass shootings so far this year!

Even the virulently anti-gun Mother Jones can only come up with three mass shootings this year:

The Mother Jones spreadsheet is actually quite comprehensive and contains a lot of good information. FWIW, according to their criteria, there have been only 99 mass shootings in this country since 1982.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
