I see the confusion, I think it's because the report is in 'military time'. So 1982 and December 2023 would be ...

Let's see, 1982, minus 1200.... 7:82 pm, rounding out as 8:22pm and 2023, minus 1200, would be 8:23 pm.

So, in one minute, on a December day, there were 149 mass shootings, which sounds about right. Well, not 'right', exactly, but close to what we're told every time a car backfires.

Hope that helps...
