Response to BuelahWitch (Reply #17)

Tue Jan 15, 2013, 05:54 AM

20. Yes, I had to place my reply somewhere...I was trying to address both the previous 2 threads.

The wiki site together with the Mother Jones story (which is exclusively after 1982) present a more complete history of mass shootings... they are reported more often in recent years.

One of the problems with armchair analysis of the trends around the mass shootings is that there are multiple confounding factors which are moving in the same direction ...

SSRIs can't be a problem until SSRI's hit the market and once they did, their use expanded and more and more types were produced. And that trajetory moves in the same general direction as the increase in mass shootings.

During that same time...

Semiautomatic firearms that used high capacity magazines became increasingly available and increasingly popular among people who had money to buy them...and that moves in the same general directions as the increase in mass shootings.
