Static Visualization

Gun ownership is very complicated in America, especially since mass shootings continue to rise. Researchers have discovered that media coverage of mass shootings has led to fame-seeking rampage shooters.

This static visualization combines the Mother Jones – Mass Shootings Database, 1982-2019 with a paper published in American Behavioral Scientist, Sep 2017. A timeline and arch diagram were combined to connect the mass shootings to the attackers. No Notoriety was implemented, so the attacker’s names are not displayed.
