I agree on the Mother Jones bias. However, a problem with this issue is that only one side seems to even bother doing serious data collection, presumably because the other side already knows that the data is not going to support their position.

I'd rather use something like CDC data or ATF data, but the Republican party made sure that those agencies can't even properly research gun violence. (Dickey Amendment, Tiahrt Amendment)

Hell, the ATF is not even allowed to keep searchable electronic gun ownership records! "Tracing a gun" often means someone at ATFs National Tracing Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia has to walk to a physical cardboard box somewhere and find the right piece of paper. (This is for Out-of-Business Records. Otherwise the request is forwarded to the gun dealer who sold the weapon.)

The CDC published a study of Firearm Violence in 2015. But that study did only look at regular violent crimes (using only data from Delaware). It did not look at mass shootings and did not contain any data sets relevant to mass shootings.

(But conservatives often claim that this study found no link between fatalities from mass shootings and gun legislation. Which technically is kind of true because the study did not investigate that question at all! It's like saying the moon is made from cheese because the Stanford Prison Experiment did not produce evidence to the contrary.)

Links to other data sets would be very welcome. I'd be happy to compare data sets and/or rerun the same analysis with other data sets.
