    Where this happened doesn't make a difference. I am still very disturbed by the outbreak of these acts. There has to be an underlying cause. Sure we are on an instant 24hr new cycle and a camera is now in every pocket but this is a recent phenomenon. This didn't happen with this regularity 40-50 years ago. After WWII, Korea or even Viet Nam with all the young men coming back from battle with PTSD/Shell Shock did we experience anything like this. So why now?

    It also appears to me that the vast majority of these perpetrators are under the age of 30! Was it all the Ritalin? Has our Culture changed that much?

    Once again I will state my belief that the Next One is already out there, living and walking amongst us everyday un-noticed. It's just a matter of when and where.
    I am a Veteran, I am a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather.
    I was labeled a Deplorable, now I'm a Nationalist rather than a Globalist! As a USA Veteran I will proudly wear that to protect our Nation!
    When they can figure out how to legislate Morality and Conscience I will consider talking more gun laws.

    They are keeping a lid on the investigation, this is from 11 hours ago and it says nothing that was already said:

    3/4 of persons diagnosed with schizophrenia are between the ages of 16 and 25. Drug usage can be a marker or exacerbate the symptoms and I am pretty sure that social media and violent video games don't help in this regard either.

    Schizophrenia.com, paranoid schizophrenia - Schizophrenia info; overview of the disease

    Worldwide the number of cases are estimated to be 1%...once again the USA exceeds the norm with 1.2%. That's 3.2 million Americans with the disease. It's probably safe to wonder why we don't have more incidents like these.

    Mass murders go back a long ways. The first one I remember as a kid, but by far not the first one happened at the University of Texas in the Bell Tower, or from on top of it on August 1, 1966 and for a period of 96 minutes, the former Marine killed 16 and injured 31 others. His Autopsy showed a brain tumor. True, the frequency increased in the ensuing years, and for the last 30 or more years, these shootings seem to come in threes, and many of these disgruntled people have scrap books of news stories regarding them and joined the infamous cult.

    On a good weekend in Chitcago, 10 people die and 40 more are wounded, but no big deal is made about it. I wonder what the numbers for baltimore are. Perhaps in earlier times, serial killers who strung out their carreer grew into mass killers. They want to achieve mortality by making as many others miserable and terrified and grief stricken as possible. Also, a big factor is no longer having state and federally funded asylums, which is another big reason for people living on the streets, that and local govt.

    Bingo! I think you have to figure in the drugs too, the prescribed drugs. When I was a kid, you could only get anti-depressants on the street 'coz no doctor would prescribe 'em. If it was determined that you needed something like that, you were in some kind of institution or hospital before you got any. Even the alleged non-psychotic drugs a lot of people are prescribed still have psychological, mood altering side effects. Physicians are passing the stuff out like candy anymore. I don't know how many here recall the Ritalin craze of the late '80s, early '90s but the schools used any excuse they could to put kids on that stuff. I'd wouldn't doubt that some of these shooters and beheaders are products of that drug.

    Local news here said his gun was legally purchased shortly before. They also had a guy (who was there) going on about hearing "automatic weapons fire." He said "When you hear that quick 'pop-pop-pop' you know its automatic weapons fire." So, the moral of the story is that it's SUPER quick and easy to buy automatic weapons.

    The news is all about selling you the story. Today you hear about car crashes clear on the other side of the country. Even if mass shootings are on the rise murder and violent crime rates are on the decline. Have been for decades. Metal detectors and all, I wouldn't have gone to that festival. It seems foolish to me to be in a place someone might target and not be allowed to have my pistol on me.

    It happened in the 1960s. JFK had a sister who had a lot of problems. He wanted to federalize the loony bins. So they started telling the states that the fed would take them over, but then it never happened. That is why a lot of the homeless people you see are nuttier than squirrel poop. My mom use to work for the county mental health. If the cops thought someone was nuts they would call her and she would decide what to do with them. She said in all her years there were only a handful of people who were naturally crazy. She said that most people who had lost it were that way because of drugs.

    We the People have stopped holding kids responsible for their actions.

    We have allowed our schools and media to teach us that individuality and self-sufficiency are secondary to group think and village ideals.

    We have allowed our doctors to drug our kids instead of using discipline and the teaching of good morals to shape them.

    We have allowed our Faith to be watered down and attacked by those that abhor the values inherent in having Faith.

    We have allowed the value of life to be diminished by allowing the legal killing of unborn infants in the womb.

    We have allowed deviancy and immorality to become normalized through television, music and video games.

    We have allowed our schools to teach our kids to suffer from bullying instead of fighting back.

    We, we have allowed this by not standing up for what is right and allowing those that wish to subvert our country to have far too much power over us.

    We the People have the ability to correct all of this, but do we have the spine?
