These these are not even happening between months at a time. Its now weeks at a time.

This was happening during (or just before) RING the NRA's ridiculous press conference today.

Keep blaming hurricanes though, NRA.

When mass murders happen people care, when just 1 or 2 people die, it's not that big of a deal that happens every day in America.

I hear this all the time, and I don't think it's that simple. Some people are suicidal and angry at the world for their suffering.

Media coverage is probably a minor influence in them wanting to exact revenge.

People often joke, "if I'm going out, I'm taking a whole lot of motherf*ckers with me". Nas has rapped, "Could use a gun, but **** bein the wanted man.. but if I hit rock bottom, I'ma be the Son of Sam".

Of course these are just jokes and fantastical lyrics, but it does hint at some impulse that lies within some people.

True. It's just that people want to kill other people.

And there was a threat of shooting at my school today. Cops were there and we couldn't stay in the campus after school. Good thing the shooting didn't occur or I'd be posting from the afterlife.

This is not newsworthy. There's a shooting in my city almost every other week. Hell, a police officer in my city got shot "today".

They are looking for help and we need to be aware enough to recognize that fact.
