Unfortunately the UCC incident isn't the first campus shooting that has taken place this year — in fact, it's the 294th mass shooting that has gone on in the U.S. in 2015, a number that is just slightly over the number of days we've had in the year. The infographics below help tell the story of gun violence in America — and it's a horrible one to behold.
This infographic is sourced from stats on homicide, suicide and unintentional firearm fatalities in the United States when compared to other countries.
CNN breaks down domestic deaths from terrorism and compares those rates to deaths from firearms in the U.S. from 2004 to 2013.
This graphic plots out statistics from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which collects data from the United States and elsewhere. In this case, this infographic shows deaths from assault, no matter what weapons were used.
Healy further breaks down deaths from assault in the U.S., and plots them out from region to region within the country.
Did you think that school shootings are few and far between? This infographic from The Huffington Post shows that there have been 45 school shootings so far this year.
This map (which is interactive on its source page) shows the rate of deaths per 100,000 population due to firearms state by state. The darker blue a state is, the higher the rate is. These stats come from 2013.
This is another infographic that unfortunately will likely need updating on a regular, daily basis.
