16 mass shootings have taken place in 2012 already, resulting in the deaths of least 88 people dead and untold numbers wounded and psychologically scarred for life. In the vast majority of shooting sprees that took place between 1982 to 2012, the killers obtained their guns legally. And an average of 10,000 people die ever year from gun-related violence in the US.
