The Colorado attack is the 7th mass shooting in 7 days in the US

The mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday took place less than a week after eight people were killed in a series of attacks on spas in Atlanta.

The two incidents are likely to spur discussion about gun control legislation in the United States, where firearm deaths are tragically common.
They are also among at least seven mass shootings in the past week across the United Statesincluding three incidents on Saturday alone.
      CNN defines a mass shooting as: a shooting incident which results in four or more casualties (dead or wounded) excluding the shooter(S).

          Ten people, including a Boulder police officer, were killed in a shooting at the King Soopers supermarket, secondo la polizia.
            It’s unclear how this number of mass shootings compares to an average week in the US.
            Though some official gun violence data is available, the US federal government does not have a centralized system or database to track firearm incidents and mass shootings nationwide. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which tracks some gun violence data, quasi 40,000 people were killed in incidents involving firearms in 2019
