Actually not. Mass shooting are down since the 90s. Media saturation is up. That said, there are a lot of solutions being proposed and the test to apply is would they have prevented this or similar incidents. with 280 million guns out there more gun control sure won't. Prevention through better mental health care won't, because there are thousands of people with similar profiles to the shooter who don't shoot people. In fact there is no way to keep these kinds of incidents from happening. Clearbranch's idea, however, while not preventing incidents, has the benefit of potentially limiting the damage. The unnoticed story this week is about the guy at a showing of the Hobbit who pulled out a gun and before he could kill people was drilled by a an off-duty sheriff's deputy who was there. And you can hardly find a mention of it in the mass media. Obama fulminates against gus yet under his administration federal gun prosecutions are down 40% from the Bush Administration.We are being played, folks.
