Exclamation Why I don't believe modern shootings are happening organically

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass..._United_States
12/20 happened in the past 10 years.

After the bell tower in 1966; the next shooting of 10 or more was in 1984.

Stats don't lie.

The likelihood of the modern shootings happen at such a ocurrence is a statistical anomaly.

1 Las Vegas shooting 2017 59 (including the perpetrator) Semi-automatic rifles
2 Orlando nightclub shooting 2016 50 (including the perpetrator) Semi-automatic rifle
3 Virginia Tech shooting 2007 33 (including the perpetrator) Handguns
4 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting 2012 28 (including the perpetrator) Semi-automatic rifle and bolt action rifle
5 Sutherland Springs church shooting 2017 27 (including the perpetrator) Semi-automatic rifle
6 Luby's shooting 1991 24 (including the perpetrator) Handguns
7 San Ysidro McDonald's massacre 1984 22 (including the perpetrator) Multiple weapons
8 University of Texas tower shooting 1966 18 (including the perpetrator) Multiple weapons
9 San Bernardino attack 2015 16 (including both perpetrators) Semi-automatic rifles
10 Edmond post office shooting 1986 15 (including the perpetrator) Handguns
Columbine High School massacre 1999 15 (including both perpetrators) Multiple weapons
12 Binghamton shootings 2009 14 (including the perpetrator) Handguns

Clearly you have yet to make the connection between social media, always being plugged in, the truly never ending 24/7 news cycle... AND A MASSIVE SPIKE IN MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS.

You havenít made the connection yet, but you will.

It's the TV violence and the video games. I remember a school shooting happened around my community in the late 90s because of that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIQt9Jdp94Q&t=

'70s - '90s was the age of the serial killer - the majority of iconic killers (Gacy, Bundy, The Nightstalker, Son of Sam, Dahmer, Green River Killer, etc) come from that era. They're still around obviously, but they don't get anywhere near the publicity mass shooters do.

if I had to argue my case against one of these being a conspiracy...

which one do you think I'd go with?

only one of them needs to be exposed for them to all be questionable.

So which one do you think I'd pick if I had to take one of these cases before a judge, jury, and executioner?

Republicans want to know if the gun survived the shootings.

I was saying is if we didn't have deep ops, False flags, etc the numbers would be closer to pre-2000 levels.
You have to make your point simple for some cro-magnons here to grasp.

The 1991 Luby shooting happened the day before a controversial crime and gun bill was passed in Congress. That certainly could have been a false flag.

no matter what the reason for a mass shooting...religion, conspiracy to pass a law, political, etc, etc

no matter what the shooter is 'crazy'.

if you shoot up a group of humans for ANY reason, your head is fcked up.

How are the kill totals so huge now? Are Ssri medications turning these ordinary citizens into John Rambo all of a sudden?

I still don't think it's that kind of a conspiracy. I feel like there's some way that media culture can make certain people snap.

It sounds pretty ridic, but I think it makes sense. Repetitive violent imagery, words/sounds as suggestions, etc... and some people are just wired a bit off. Media has become more pervasive. People are getting more angry and hateful.

It's not that whole "well everyone has Twitter now so we see it more" IMO, it's really happening. We are going crazy as a country, why? Nothing really changed, it's just how its presented and how often it's presented to us.

You can tell even on this message board. Some people post about bball and they might joke or troll, but then they post about politics and they are like a different person. It's like MK Ultra.

Be safe, lads. We're all in this together.

Military style rifles in massively crowded areas...anyone could do it


You think these are all Rambos that just happen to be on depression meds?
