We've had a pretty quiet year with an absence of mass shootings.
DNC is currently working on gun laws in the legislature.
Is it coincidence that 2 mass shootings occurred in the space of one week? In all honesty the timing to me is highly suspect.
What are your thoughts on the possibility these shootings are not random.
Conspiracy theories are often a way to cope with the cognitive dissonance caused by fake news.
What we know about extreme violence is that it is statistically related to low IQ and high testosterone levels. Random mass shooters don't seem to follow that pattern. They are however almost exclusively male. That does not mean that mass murderers are exclusively male but female killers seem to prefer poising instead of overt violence. What mass murderers seem to have in common is some sort of alienation from the social structures they find themselves in. That can be caused by mental illness, political orientation, religious beliefs, childhood trauma, but most likely a combination of factors. A look at the least of recent mass murderers does not show the pattern we would expect if the media was reporting honestly. As a percent of the population white males are about proportionately represented with the somewhat notable exception of black males. With the exception of the Dallas police shootings.
Black males are disportionately represented however in murder statistics. "African Americans are highly overrepresented in murders and gun assaults" [en.wikipedia.org] . That calls into question the theory that certain groups are more likely to commit mass murder due to ideological orientation that devalues certain lives. The worst cases of mass murder in recent decades have in fact happened in Africa because of tribal conflicts or ethnocentrism. Why would that pattern not transfer to Western mass murders making black Westerners as likely as other ethnicities to commit mass murder? It doesn't seem likely it can be accounted for by weak ethnic identity. It also doesn't seem linked to susceptibility to conspiracy theories or mental illness.
Mass murderers seem to be a special type of "spiteful mutant" the "beautiful ones" a kind of narcissism and nihilism associated with sexual dysfunction. They are often childless or estranged individuals. Their mental processes recursive and self grooming. As traditional social structures continue to break down it seems likely that there will be an increase in these events. In a way the cure is the cause.
Dr. Suess? Pepe LePew? Foghorn Leghorn? Damn them all!
Actually, since Columbine, Colorado has been the turn to State for demonstrating the necessity for gun control. We'll find it is just another psycho that authorities allowed to go off his meds.
the more I think about the less I see conspiracy but instead the natural consequence of treating one of the largest demographics (avg middle age/class white dude) in America like they are worthless evil beings whose voice not only does not matter, but should be silenced by force if necessary. unfortunately when you take away their voice, or the ability to change their circumstance by force long enough humans will lash out in any way they can like a cornered rat just before its end... BLM riots are a recent example of this. I fear that media rhetoric, cancel culture and authoritarian policies will only bring more of this until we either get new leadership or we are all full commies.
our leaders instead of looking at the natural consequence of their policies will double down and try to ban guns, then knifes, then household materials, and of course free will or thought. its a bad road
I would not be surprised if orchestrated by the so called DNC! To me it seems these criminals are working hard to remove the 2nd amendment as quickly as possible and by any means possible!
Seems sad that the Americans constitution is in jeopardy now by this administration, so much easier to bring in socialism with unarmed citizens! Now that is a fact not gossip!
