I noticed no posts on here regarding the incident, and not nearly as much media coverage as other mass shootings.

Weird.

this is actually making your point for you perfectly

In other words, its taking a Congressional Research Office/FBI phrase “mass shootings,” which is defined as “multiple, firearm, homicide incidents, involving 4 or more victims at one or more locations close to one another” and using it to argue that Congress should “ban assault weapons and large capacity magazines” when the 611 mass shootings referenced in the tweet are largely handgun-related.

Its an apple to an orange. The typical high-profile fantasy-style, often random victim, unconnected location, AR/Body armor event (eg Boulder, Sandy Hook, Santa Monica, El Paso) is only a subset of the “mass shootings” statistic.
