Americans were exposed to the terror of mass gun violence again on Wednesday, this time at a social services center in San Bernardino, California. The initial reports revealed a distressingly familiar pattern: A heavily armed active shooter or shooters, at least 14 people dead and more injured, harrowing images of law enforcement and first responders rushing to get the area under control, and stunned people — some of them wounded and bleeding — streaming out of the facility.

It seems like we’ve seen this time and time again. But mass shootings occur even more frequently than many people realize, because most of them don’t make the national news.

Over on Reddit, the Guns Are Cool community has compiled a list of every U.S. mass shooting this year. According to their count, Wednesday’s burst of violence was the 355th this year

Gunshots set the tempo for one of the most draining rhythms of American life.

Mass shootings, which have been about as consistent as the rise of the sun this year, are a constant source of tragedy and anxiety across the country. Again and again, the United States reacts to mass shootings with a ritualized bout of mourning as critics of the country’s gun policies slide into a well-worn cycle of horror, sadness and anger.

One established feature of this cycle is a chart that circulates across the Internet showing how exceptional the U.S. is in the developed world for the frequency of its gun deaths.

If We Treated Other Public Health Issues The Way The Pro-Gun Crowd Treats Shootings

Because saying, “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people,” isn’t good enough.

President Barack Obama’s address to the nation on Thursday, hours after a gunman rampaged through a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, was the 15th time he has delivered remarks about a mass shooting during his presidency. Noting that the previous 14 killing sprees had failed to stir Congress to tighten gun laws, he took a more aggressive tone this time.

“This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America,” said Obama. “We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.”

The president went on to compare the nation’s response to gun violence with how we react to other kinds of tragedies.

Nine people were shot to death by a white man at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night — rocking a nation already grappling with institutional racism and race-related violence.

The gunman entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church during a weekly Bible study meeting and opened fire around 9 p.m. Eight people were found dead at the scene, police said. Two others were transported to a hospital, where one later died.

The suspect, named as 21-year-old Dylann Roof, was captured Thursday morning in Shelby, North Carolina, according to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. According to Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen, Roof was arrested during a traffic stop.

A New $1 Million Prize Competition Aims To Fight Gun Violence With Tech

Mass shootings have become unfortunately common in American life, so a few Silicon Valley investors are launching a $1 million competition to see if technology can reduce firearm violence. With the help of early Facebook investor Ron Conway, the Smart Tech Foundation is soliciting ideas on everything from biometric locks to crime-predicting algorithms.

“We looked at this and said there’s been a systemic failure in the level of innovation and capitalization in this area,” Smart Tech director and serial entrepreneur Jim Pitkow told Fast Company. He announced the program at Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored conference in San Francisco yesterday.

This isn’t the first time Silicon Valley (and Conway) have incentivized their tech brethren to stop gun violence. Three months after Adam Lanza killed 20 children at Sandy Hook elementary, Conway’s Sandy Hook Promise launched a program to expedite investment in violence-reducing technologies.

For example, ShotSpotter outfits local law enforcement with an alert systems that can triangulate violence based on the audio-signal of a gunshot (the technology still has some bugs to get worked out).

When 13 people died in a shooting rampage at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., on Monday, the story made front page news. Many of the mass shootings that have happened since the massacre of elementary school students and teachers in Newtown, Conn., last December didn’t.

Jim Fallon’s TED Talk Explores The Brains Of Psychopathic Killers (VIDEO)

Maj. Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 in a 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas. In the almost four years since that event, 16 more mass shootings have occurred in the United States, with fatalities ranging from four to 28, according to data compiled by Mother Jones.

Each such event inevitably begets the question: What motivates killers? What can turn a person to such an act of violence? A 2009 TED talk by neuroscientist Jim Fallon may hold one of the keys to the enduring mystery of human violence.

Fallon explains that after examining the brains of around 70 psychopathic killers, certain common traits became evident — every single brain showed signs of damage. Fallon was even able to pinpoint a specific area where murderers had experienced trauma: the orbital cortex. Furthermore, he found that the age at which the damage occurred was also a sign of whether someone would become a killer or not.
