The vox article says that 115 people have been killed by a gun so far in 2019.
Just as something to compare that number to.
37k people died in 2017 by car accidents in the United states.
That breaks down to just over 100 deaths per day.

based on one group’s definition of mass shooting.
Since the Sandy Hook shooting, there have been more than 2,000 mass shootings in which four or more people, excluding the shooter, were shot but not necessarily killed. Nearly 2,300 people have been killed and almost 8,400 have been wounded.
Apparently by their definition if an accidental discharge caused fragmentations that hit 4 people it would be counted as a mass shooting .
