In their investigation, Mother Jones reporters did not go back to check the local laws in place at the time of each shooting.

"In the last 20 years, except for the congresswoman (Gabby) Giffords shooting, all of these mass murders have been in places where guns have been forbidden," Hoell told his colleagues in the House.

On the whole, Lott's colleagues both in the media and academia don't dispute his findings.

In 2000, he published a report along with William M. Landes of the University of Chicago Law School, which analyzed mass killings from 1977 99. The study, "Multiple Victim Public Shootings," determined that each incident in that period took place in a "gun free zone."

Examining the last 20 years of mass shootings through the lens of 'gun free' zones

More than a month after the shooting in Newtown, Conn., President Barack Obama returned the nation's focus to gun control Wednesday, presenting plans to tighten the country's firearms laws. But in New Hampshire, lawmakers have been addressing the matter since they returned to session earlier this year.

"Provided the weapon is not concealed, anyone can carry without restriction," he wrote.

For instance, the Hartford Distributors plant in Manchester, Conn., the site of a 2010 shooting incident in which nine people were killed, did have a gun ban in place at the time, company officials told The Telegraph.

We set out to check all of them, but the majority of our queries were not returned, making it difficult to come to a conclusion.

"I suspect that most places that mass public shootings could logically occur are 'gun free zones' either determined by the government (schools) or by private businesses and institutions," David Hemenway, director of the Injury Control Research Center at Harvard University, wrote in an email.

Of the 48, six, including last month's Newtown shooting, took place at schools, and therefore fall under the federal Gun Free School Zones Act of 1990, which prohibits guns in or around school campuses.

But they do debate Lott's conclusions, and Hoell's point that a location's "gun free" status actually attracts shooters.

Once again, Lott's findings show that each mass shooting, except the Giffords incident, took place in "gun free zones."

But the International House of Pancakes restaurant in Carson City, Nevada, where five people died in 2011, had no such ban in place, according to city Sheriff Ken Furlong. That meant the business deferred to the state's firearms laws, which allow licensed individuals to carry a concealed weapon and anyone to carry openly, Furlong wrote in an email to The Telegraph.

Sandy Hook Elementary School, like all other schools across the country, is a federally declared "gun free zone." But to declare that all of the mass murders in the past 20 years were also in gun free zones is a different story.

We attempted to analyze this claim for PolitiFact, determining where it rates on the Truth O Meter. But this question proved too far reaching to summarize definitively. So we decided to publish our findings without a ruling.

"Schools might be a likely target because that is where a mass of people congregate and those people involve a lot of troubled adolescents who may harbor bad feelings toward the people there who bullied them, were unfair to them, etc," added Daniel Webster, director of Center for Gun Policy and Research at Johns Hopkins University. "The shooters in these instances didn't say, 'Hey, I'll find a gun free zone where I can shoot a lot of people.' No, they went to a place for reasons wholly unrelated to gun free zones."

The study, titled "A Guide to Mass Shootings in America," determined there have been at least 62 public shooting incidents since 1982 in which four people or more were killed. Of those, 48 fall into the 20 year time period identified by Hoell.

In addition, three of the incidents took place at universities Oikos University, Virginia Tech University and Northern Illinois University which prohibited firearms, while three occurred at churches or houses of worship, which had gun bans at the time.

"Killers go where victims can't defend themselves," Lott wrote last week in an email to The Telegraph, using this year's Aurora movie theater shooting as an example. "Out of seven theaters showing the Batman movie premiere within 20 minutes of the suspect's apartment, only one banned permitted concealed handguns. The suspect didn't go to the closest nor the largest, but to the one that banned self defense. Time after time, the story is the same."

On Jan. 3, the first day of the 2013 session, the Legislature took up a proposal to renew a long standing ban on firearms in the state House of Representatives. Hoell, of Dunbarton, who argued the move could leave legislators vulnerable to violence.

The rest of the shooting incidents are harder to track, however. Movie theaters, shopping malls, coffee shops and other privately owned businesses, the location of the vast majority of the public shootings, are not subject to federal gun laws, relying instead on state or Lv Vivienne local concealed carry laws or company regulations to regulate firearms.

"There is no evidence, to our knowledge, of any mass shooter specifically selecting his location based on its likelihood of being 'gun free,'" Mary Vriniotis, a research specialist for the Harvard school, wrote in an email.
