    One thought on “Rampage Nation: Securing America from Mass Shootings”

    1. Mass shootings. An extremely polarizing topic that often has no single definitions used by any person or group discussing them. No single definition, very little hard data compiled together, and people on both sides of the debate who are unwilling to listen to any argument but their own. It's no wonder that very little honest and open conversation has been done. In "Rampage Nation", Louis Klarevas seeks to have that open and honest conversation, using data he painstakingly collected. Central to [...]

    2. Data driven and deeply analytical, this work by Dr. Louis Klarevas is the most thorough I have found on the cause of mass shootings. His narratives of the events of Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, Aurora, and the Washington Naval Yard are intensely dramatic and horrifying in their detail. His "Trinity of Violence" makes for a compelling case for the reasons mass shootings occur and how to prepare for their response and ultimately bring about a reduction in their numbers. His chapter on Prescription: [...]

    3. Rampage Nation dives into the copious amount of data out there about gun shootings to draw some horrifying conclusions about mass shootings in the United States today. Klarevas brings home the discussion about how even the definition of what constitutes a mass shooting is up to debate and that definition skews the numbers all over the place in this contentious debate.I did feel that sometimes the author did get a bit too much "in the weeds" in some parts so to speak where there was so much data [...]

    4. Reading this book was excruciating. I don't think the details are gratuitous, but if you read them and feel nothing I'd take that as a very worrying sign. Complete review to come.Full review:Fair warning: the beginning of this book is extremely difficult to read. I mean, gut-churningly, nausea-inducing hard to read. Klarevas launches his thesis about what can be done to mitigate gun violence in the U.S. by providing a very detailed accounting of the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, and it is a [...]

    5. Rampage Nation: Securing America from Mass Shootings by Louis Klarevas covers the recent history of mass shootings (excluding Orlando) from a data set assembled by the author. The author points out the problems in trying to discuss mass shootings is the lack of clear definitions and he gives his making the data set reproducible. (in fact I was able to reproduce his data set almost to the number with the exception of mass shootings that occurred after the data he likely assembled his). The book p [...]
