A MOTHER of three, a veteran police officer, a trusted store employee, a young rabbinical student. Mindy Ferencz, 33, Joseph Seals, 40, Douglas Miguel Rodriguez, 49, Moshe Deutsch, 24, were the victims of the Jersey City Kosher Supermarket shooting, an hours-long chain of gun violence on Dec. 10, 2019. The day was a grim coda to a particularly ghastly year of mass public shootings. According to The Post’s database, there were 13 mass shootings in 2019, with 90 people killed and another 112 injured. Among those killed: shoppers at a Walmart in Texas; public servants at work in Virginia Beach, bar patrons in a historic entertainment district in Ohio.

There were fewer mass shootings in 2020 — five, according to The Post’s tally — but that was almost certainly due to the pandemic, which kept people in their houses and out of the workplaces, schools and other public spaces that have become hunting grounds for those with the twisted intent of killing innocents. Now, as the pandemic is easing and some normalcy is returning, the pace of mass shootings has picked up. Just four months into 2021, there has already been more of such carnage than in all of last year. Among the locations: an office building in California; spas in Georgia; a supermarket in Colorado; a popular commercial area in Chicago. The latest tragedy came Thursday night, when a gunman stormed into a FedEx warehouse in Indianapolis and within mere minutes killed eight people and injured at least seven others. “This is another heartbreaking day,” Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) said on Twitter.

It, of course, doesn’t have to be this way. If the country confronted the epidemic of gun violence with resolve and common sense, lives could — and would — be saved. No single law will prevent all gun deaths, but there are common-sense measures that would help. Like universal background checks. Like a ban on assault weapons. Like child access prevention laws. President Biden and the congressional Democratic leadership understand that, but so far they haven’t been able to overcome Republican opposition to enact meaningful reforms.

Six years ago, we published the names of some of the victims of mass shootings. It was, tragically, only a sampling — far from comprehensive. Since then, the roster of needlessly lost lives has only grown.

Now added to the list are the victims in Indianapolis, whom authorities identified as: Matthew R. Alexander, 32; Samaria Blackwell, 19; Amarjeet Johal, 66; Jasvinder Kaur, 50; Jaswinder Singh, 68; Amarjit Sekhon, 48; Karli Smith, 19; and John Weisert, 74.
