The Connections: Mass Shootings, Domestic Violence, And Violence Against Women

A full 57% of mass shootings in the last 5 years were of a man targeting his wife, girlfriend, or family. And its not just mass shootings. This is the truth that women know, and men avoid. Shootings regulary involve abusers, men rejected by women who merely assume agency over themselves, and just about every situation where toxic masculinity and misogyny meet the availability of a weapon. Men should be checking other men on their behavior, and doing everything we can to stop the violence, support women and girls, and punish violent men so they can no longer do harm.
