Copycat effect is a real thing

These shootings have been getting more coverage, including politicians on both sides looking for an angle

Bulletproof bookbags are even a thing now

There’s also evidence we’re seeing an uptick in mass shootings, so between all these factors i do think we’re setting the stage for an increase in these types of events

I don’t think emo is the term you’re looking for, as that term is usually applied to those who are in touch with their emotions, as opposed to those who are repressed and/or mentally unstable

and outside of that, your scenario is just odd. were you rebuffed at a Halloween party? it’s just so specific.

I was being flippant obviously...

I'm just thinking of situations that are school related where a mass shooter would choose to find masses

There's probably lots of other school-related shootings where there's only 1 or 2 victims that I guess we're not supposed to care about

I guess if that's something you live in fear of and need to think about a lot, then that's just your prerogative. not trying to hate.

Quote :
"Authorities identified the shooter as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old Marine veteran. He used a Glock 21 – a brand of .45-caliber handgun – with an extended magazine, police said. His motive and death are under investigation.
...
In April, Dean said his department was called to Long's home due to a domestic dispute, where he was "somewhat irate and acting irrationally." A mental health crisis team concluded that Long didn't need to be taken into custody at the time.
"


Concerns me a lil because the police had a multi hour standoff here in Raleigh with a trump supporter (the only house in the neighborhood with a trump sign) a few weeks ago for a “domestic dispute”, they had to use some kind of explosive to breach his house.

These crazies could be anywhere.

Active shooter at a highschool in Topsail this morning, no reports of deaths or injuries yet.

Now reporting it could have been equipment malfunction that sounded like gunfire

Incel means involuntarily celibate. Just because he had a gf in the past doesn't mean he's not involuntarily celibate now. Nor does it even mean that he wasn't involuntarily celibate when he had the gf.

And the kid was supposedly an Alex Jones and Milo fan.

This was in and out of the news

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2019/03/13/teenage-gunmen-kill-brazil-school-shooting/

Quote :
"Mass shootings are rare in Brazil, but they are growing more common. In December, a man fatally shot four people outside a cathedral in Sao Paulo before killing himself. In October 2017, a student in the central city of Goiana shot six classmates at his middle school, two of them fatally.

The shooting comes as Brazilians are calling for looser gun laws to arm themselves amid a deadly crime wave. Brazil’s new right-wing president, Jair Bolsonaro, signed a decree earlier this year making it easier for the average citizen to own a gun."

former student, dropped out earlier in the semester, diagnosed as autistic at age 3, sounds more like a "school shooting" than some type of racial/religious act.

i'm not even sure how people defend loose gun laws at this point.

This kind of shooting hasn't occurred for a very long time at a southern school since 07@VT I think. 2 dead, 2 in ICU still.

I'm not sure if you're kidding or not. Or maybe you some specific definition for 'this kind of shooting' or 'south'. but there have been several shootings below the mason-dixon line, so definitely including North Carolina and Georgia, but also Florida and Maryland, which some people don't describe as the south.

Maybe you're thinking of a particular death count? Maybe greater than 3 or 4 and an extremely restrictive definition of south, would make your point valid.
But even when a gunman comes in and randomly shoots and injures people,, rather than kills, I still consider that a problem worthy of greater gun control.

Shooting on school campus doesn't happen often imo, especially in the South where it's considered as a peaceful and safe region. And this one occurred right at the heart of the UNCC campus, where Hillary had her rally in 2016. So it's really hurting.

Again, still inaccurate, unless you are specifically restricting to college campuses and have an odd definition of the south. There was literally a school shooting in Georgia like a week or two ago, with a ton of injuries.

There was the large one with lots of deaths in Texas (argue if you want whether it is the south but it's definitely gun country). There was also Parkland, which was only a few years back. I mean really, without going far back at all, I can't see justification for your statement. There is so much to the contrary that I'm starting to think I'm missing an obvious joke you're making. If so, I'm sorry.
