There have most definitely been in increase is mass shootings. The latest in El Paso appears to be a white supremacy laced hate crime. Not sure about Dayton.

There are theories abound as to the reasons why. Guns, mental illness, sick and sadistic individuals, Trumps rhetoric. I certainly know I have no answers, and do believe it's a mix of various reasons. History ties wars to religion, so religious factors can always be a potential. Political decisions by government which affect groups of people, for which other groups act against. Mentally ill individuals can act without real reason. Totally sane people can act with a defined and thought out purpose, El Paso appearing to be something along this lines.

The gun control debate will rage again. Gun control laws in the U.S. will be in focus. One thing I believe is despite if you are for or against laws to increase background checks or trying to get rid of assault weapons, that Congress seems to be too chicken sh*t to actaully grow a set and do something, anything. Still all talk and no action of any kind. Same goes for increasing funds towards the mental health profession for studies etc.

What do you think is at the root cause (highest % reason) for the increase in mass killings not related to war?

The need for attention using an agenda as an excuse and topped off by a mental disorder.

The biggest reason was taking God out of society.

And the extreme Immorality that has been allowed to enter our country, breaking down the decent, moral fiber we once had.

Now, don't expect me to "dance" back and forth with replies.

This will be my only post.

A crazed sense society needs to be punished and/or the fame and desire to be heard and remembered
