20. an elephant in the room

many of these folks were people that were either middle class or working class who lost a job.

As far as video games go, if that was a factor, Japan and Korea would be bloodbaths,

what it is that you have a bunch of working to middle class Americans feeling powerless, in some cases, shit upon, and in many cases, their ego bruised, so they seek a power trip just to show they are not weak.

and while I normally hate to play race cards, there is an elephant in the room, why is it that so many of these shootings happen to be in the suburbs, by people who come from the suburbs? Yes, that is mean, but I still remember how, ever since McVeigh, so many people that predict the shooter is brown or black turn out wrong, just like they did in Columbine, just like in every other mass shooting where the perp is another guy who just happens to read Glenn Beck as a coincidence.
