Summary Frustrated by reactionary policy conversations that never seemed to convert into meaningful action, Peterson and Densley built The Violence Project, the first comprehensive database of mass shooters. Their goal was to establish the root causes of mass shootings and figure out how to stop them by examining hundreds of data points in the life histories of more than 170 mass shooters-- from their childhood and adolescence to their mental health and motives. They have gained a comprehensive firsthand understanding of the real stories behind them, rather than the sensationalized media narratives that too often prevail. Here Peterson and Densley share their data-driven solutions for exactly what we must do, at the individual level, in our communities, and as a country, to put an end to these tragedies that have defined our modern era.
