July 2012 Shooting Report: 121 dead, 387 wounded, in 508 shootings

July was another banner month for shootings with 508 compared to June’s 361, a 40.7% increase.  Those wounded also skyrocketed with 387 in July versus 233 in June, again a whopping increase of 66%.  The only bright spot was that gun deaths dropped by 7; July was 121, June 128.  And this, although a total of 12 were killed by James Holmes in the Aurora, Colorado massacre.  If the latter, along with this monthly report doesn’t encourage more gun control, what will?

There were 105 shooting incidents in July, the same as June.  Chicago leads the way with a total of 22 incidents, Arizona next with 10.  Other hot spots included Baltimore, Detroit, New Orleans, New York and St. Louis.  It is notable that there was only one shooting incident in Los Angeles, the second largest city in the U.S.  Phoenix, Arizona is the sixth largest city and it had 7 incidents.  If Congress and the American public can’t see a problem here, we are in terrible trouble.

Following is the July report but first, a reminder that these figures are based on news coverage of shootings across the country and do not reflect the grand totals which are more fully reported by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) which you can see here.  The Nasty Jack Monthly Shooting Report is meant to show the wide array of shootings nationwide that occur on almost a daily basis.

  1. Keep up the great work, Jack. I'm in awe of your researching. I can't keep up with just the kid shootings (for the Kid Shootings blog), much less ALL shootings.
