    Rampage Shootings

    They Threaten, Seethe and Unhinge, Then Kill in Quantity

    They are not drunk or high on drugs. They are not racists or Satanists, or addicted to violent video games, movies or music.

    Most are white men, but a surprising number are women, Asians and blacks. Many have college degrees, but most are unemployed. Many are military veterans.

    They give lots of warning and even tell people explicitly what they plan to do. They carry semiautomatic weapons they have obtained easily and, in most cases, legally.

    They do not try to get away. In the end, half turn their guns on themselves or are shot dead by others. They not only want to kill, they also want to die...

    Not sure I understand the point of the post.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    With all due respect to the OP, I wouldn't put a New York Times on the bottom of a lab rat's cage, for fear of insulting...the RAT!

    Seems to me they are only stopped by those willing to committ violence on the publics behalf. The issue is there are very few of those to go around.
    Equality does not exist in the real world - it is a fiction to help the self esteem of those people who consistently fail to succeed.

    Yeah, that's funny alright.... read the article....

    You will find a pretty good piece.

    In it you might find:
    Yet, the increased availability of high-powered weapons may not explain everything. Some kinds of multiple murder have declined or remained static.
    Or perhaps:
    But a closer look shows that these cases may have more to do with society's lack of knowledge of mental health issues, rather than a lack of security. In case after case, family members, teachers and mental health professionals missed or dismissed signs of deterioration.
    How about:
    But among the 102 killers in the Times database, not one got away. Eighty-nine never even left the scene of the crime.
    There's a tremendous amount of meat in the article, and I appreciate the link to it. And very little mention of banning guns or limiting magazines... if any...

    Information.

    People on the board are speculating all over the place about "How could a person be so sick, evil, deranged, etc.?" There are ideas and possible answers in the study that give you things to think about to try to come up with solutions to this countries' mass psychosis besides just banning all guns.

    Maybe it's too long for some people to read and understand.

    They left the bodies there all this time? Phewy!

    Only people who care about the oncoming battle over carry rights and want to contribute meaningful arguments to protect those rights.
