Active shooter events, especially in the United States, have become an increasingly common problem over the last decade. In an FBI report on active shooter cases from 2000-2018, we see that 2017 was the worst reported year, with nearly a second in 2018. An average of 6.4 active shooter incidents occurred every year over the first seven years of FBI study. In the last seven years of the study the average has risen to 16.4 annually.

Both schools and workplaces are at risk, with approximately 60 per cent of all mass shootings at workplaces. There were 236 shootings in the classroom and 296 lives lost in AmericanK-12 schools and larger educational institutions since Columbine (1999). 2018 is the second highest record year for active shooter events–27 Active shooter shootings in 16 countries resulted in 213 deaths (excluding shooters).
