(KMOX) — St. Louis is among the hundreds of cities mentioned on TIME magazine's latest cover that lists the locations of 253 mass shootings in the United States since January. 

According to TIME, the data was gathered by the Gun Violence Archive, which defines a mass shooting as "four or more shot and/or killed in a single event [incident>, at the same general time and location not including the shooter."

"We do have a choice as a society. Not a perfect choice. Or a guaranteed solution. But doing nothing in the face of repeated mass murder in our society is indefensible," a statement from TIME reads. "More than 250 mass shootings in the first 220 days of 2019 alone, it’s hard to believe that this doesn’t go without saying.  

"Enough."
