In terms of the number of civilians hit, I mean.

Sure, the death toll was just under 60, but over 400 folks were directly hit by bullets from the same shooter (with an extra 400 or more indirectly injured in the ensuing chaos).

No shooting in The States has seen this many folks hit by one and the same shooter in a single shooting.

Hence, the 2017 Vegas Shooting is the worst in the history of the modern United States.

Lets all hope that by the year 2319 we will still be saying it was the worst in American history. Its rather unpleasant for me to be trying to rate death of anyone greater than another, I suppose if you knew or were related to someone that was involved in one of these many incidents then that would be the worst regardless of total casulaties.

From sheer numbers that the perp attacked in this case it would look like the most destructive to human life, it has far higher numbers of injuries than any previous massacre

It is also the incident I find most likely to be the result of a remote ooerator via Magneto thermal stimulation.

Perhaps you should add "so far" to the end of your title.

The title is very self-explanatory. It's even got a goddamn question mark after it.

I know it was two years in the past, but reviewing the events of that shooting reinforces the shock felt. In 21st century America, a deadly shooting of this magnitude where several hundreds were injured DIRECTLY by bullets from THE SAME shooter. Crazy. Just imagine for a second that there was another shooter or two more or even three more with the same cache of weapons that the property developer had.

As i suspected...just a dumb thread with zero point to be made.

Canadians are like the speed limit in Montana.....everyone knows they are there....but nobody pays attention to them.

don't talk about vegas, he acted alone, motives unclear, he didn't choose his victims based on age/sex/ethnicity though that much we know!

nothing to see here, but let us know if you want to talk about christchurch.

The silence about this one tells me his ideology is likely problematic to the current narrative.

id say the bombing/buring of black wallstreet was the worst en.wikipedia.org...

The Tulsa Race Riot (or the Greenwood Massacre) of 1921[8][9][10][11] took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma.[1] It has been called "the single worst incident of racial violence in American history."[12] The attack, carried out on the ground and by air, destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the district — at that time the wealthiest black community in the United States, known as "Black Wall Street". More than 800 people were admitted to hospitals and more than 6,000 black residents were arrested and detained, many for several days.[13] The Oklahoma Bureau of Vital Statistics officially recorded 36 dead, but the American Red Cross declined to provide an estimate. When a state commission re-examined events in 2001, its report estimated that 100–300 African Americans were killed in the rioting. The riot began over Memorial Day weekend after 19-year-old Dick Rowland, a black shoeshiner, was accused of assaulting Sarah Page, the 17-year-old white elevator operator of the nearby Drexel Building. He was taken into custody. A subsequent gathering of angry local whites outside the courthouse where Rowland was being held, and the spread of rumors he had been lynched, alarmed the local black population, some of whom arrived at the courthouse armed. Shots were fired and twelve people were killed; ten black and two white.[citation needed] As news of these deaths spread throughout the city, mob violence exploded. Thousands of whites rampaged through the black neighborhood that night and the next day, killing men and women, burning and looting stores and homes. About 10,000 black people were left homeless, and property damage amounted to more than $1.5 million in real estate and $750,000 in personal property ($32 million in 2019).
but that was done with legit fire bombing from the air. in modern times i think its las vegas (roughly as many wounded as the sarin gas attacks in japan)


if were counting government attacks on civilians then id say it was bonus army en.wikipedia.org... 1017 injured in the two days but only a few deaths
