(Toronto) -- The cost of mass shooting insurance is going up.

A new Reuters analysis says the cost of buying insurance to protect against mass shootings has spiked over ten percent this year. A mass shooting is defined as an incident involving the shooting of four or more people other than the assailant.

So far, there have been over 290 mass shootings in the U.S. this year.

Demand for mass shooting insurance has risen since the deadly attack in Uvalde, Texas, which was the worst school shooting in the U.S. in nearly a decade.
