Possibly to make people ask stupid questions.

If you stir up hate, you get hate - on BOTH sides.

Well, the El Paso shooter also said we would need UBI and universal healthcare. He's also anti-corporations, worried about damage to the environment, and watched the Democratic debates.

I think cherry-picking anything mass shooters say to support someone's political cause is just disgusting. I remember MSNBC posting a Trump quote from the Christchurch shooter, but blatantly ignored parts that were against Trump. At the time, I thought it was disgusting. Maybe they figured no one would read the manifesto for themselves.

It's one thing just stating beliefs held by these mass shooters in an unbiased way, but something else to cherry pick quotes to support an agenda.

That doesn't really answer the question. You do it for a reason. What is it?

Seriously, if there was a solution to this things would be done.
Here's an idea...when someone buys guns and ammo to pull these shootings off...allow the families of the victims to sue the manufacturers and the stores that sell them. Maybe that would get these companies to stop producing so many guns.

Another idea...follow the successful policy put in by Australia after the Port Arthur mass shooting...guess what...no mass shootings since...murder rate down...suicide rate down. I still don't know why we can't follow their common sense approach.

I don't see these shootings as left or right -- just American.



And that's the saddest ever.

The disturbing trend are mass murderers walking out w/o injury.

Not wanting to die was a deterrent against such evil people. With a "I can kill as many as I want, and just put my hands up at the end" = a terrific deterrent against such evil people gone.
