According to the F.B.I., 70% of all active shooter episodes occur in one of two places: Businesses or schools.
Three of the worst active shooter incidents in modern American history have occurred in the last 20 months.
Two happened at businesses (the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida and the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada) and one happened at a school (Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida).
The mass shooting at Douglas High School surpassed that of Columbine which occurred in 1999 in terms of deaths and injuries to students, faculty and staff.
