Always remember, a lot of the major media is in the tank for the gun bigots and hoplophobes,

to the point of putting out crap like this.
Anyway, you have to be really dumb/distracted when you cannot get the math right even when you get to move the goalposts and come up with your own definitions.

I don't buy the numbers they're pushing, but the blog you link to is full of it.

His own blog post displays the FBI definition of mass shooting as "Four or more shot and/or killed in a single event..." [emphasis added].

Then claims that the Mercury News story can't be right because not enough people were reported to have DIED to equal 340 incidents.

That's the same kind of bait and switch nonsense that the gun banners use to fit the numbers to their predetermined conclusions.

They don't all have to have died to have been victims under the FBI definition...only shot during the incident. In which case their numbers work perfectly fine.

The story may be wrong in other ways, the numbers may be completely made up or they may be including unrelated shootings into the same incidents to pad the numbers, I don't know, but the offense the blog post you linked to accuses them of is flat wrong.
