Fame, Media and Mass Shootings — 1 Comment

  1. It’s nice to read an article that attempts to address the underlying root cause of mass shootings rather than simply blaming the abundance of firearms or a specific type of firearm. The fact that the shooters are progressively getting younger is a disturbing trend. They also tend to telegraph intent via social media. But more troublesome is the fact that they study previous mass shootings. Spending more time planning makes a much stronger case for the higher body count than the type of firearm involved.

    I debate with gun grabbers on social media all the time, and frequently point to the Virginia Tech shooting as evidence that the type of firearm used and magazine capacity are not significant factors in increasing the body count during a cattle pen shooting.

    Keep up the great work!
