YOU THINK YOU KNOW: USA SHOOTING CASES?

Weird as it may seen to have a quiz like this, we need to put things into perspective before it is misconstrued.

The first day of October, 2017, the United States received its bloodiest shooting case in its modern history till date,  as at the time of this writing more than 59 persons have been confirmed to have died from that incident while another 527 persons are receiving treatments in various health facilities in Las Vegas where the incident took place. It was a 3day country music festival (who would have thought that in all the possible genre of music, this will be the one to invoke such casualties if we’re to do comparative study on all music genre) than turned outright bloody when a shooter got into position on a 32nd floor of a building and rained down bullets on country music lovers who had travelled far and near to enjoy themselves with their loved ones. More on this news and its latest update click here. 

In line with recent shootings in the United States, I decided to do a research on mass shooting cases in recent decades in USA. It interests me to know how many persons within or outside this forum have done such or know some of these cases.

So in its totality, this is to also raise awareness, to make people read a little more history on certain, if not every, areas of society of countries like the United States.

    • I am sorry to hear that some were very difficult, because it means, it took the fun part out of the quiz, but it is good that way because the incidences the quiz talked is a serious menace.
      But all the same, you did well.
