The Washington Post recorded 163 mass shootings in the United States between 1967 and June 2019. Mass shootings are incidents that involve multiple victims of firearm-related violence. Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are commonplace in mass shootings and make these more lethal. This webinar will discuss the history of assault rifles, it will cover the intricacies of these weapons, and why they have become the “weapon of choice” for most acts of violence.
