Here Are The 5 Deadliest Mass Shootings In Modern U.S History

It might feel like we wake up to a new mass shooting every day. And in a way, we do.

According to massshootingtracker.org, there have been 377 mass shootings in 2017. We’ve only had 309 days so far.

On Sunday, Devin Patrick Kelley killed 26 people at a First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.

The shooting was the fifth deadliest shooting in modern history. Even more telling is the fact that all of the deadliest shootings in modern history have all occurred within the past five years. As the president, congressmen and senators send the same “thoughts and prayers” tweets in the wake of each shooting, there has been little, if any, comprehensive change to gun control laws. And the GOP continues to ignore gun violence for their own interest, calling for more guns and attributing this clear domestic terrorism as a “mental health issue.”

Take a look at the five deadliest shootings in modern U.S. history.
