Why does the MSM always assume a shooter is a man?

Because 99% of violent gun assaults ARE committed by males! Women and children are usually the victims. What a lovely Valentine's Day surprise.

Gee, I guess this is what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the 2nd Amend 250 years ago.

1. Like you said. Historically it always is a man.

There might be an exception or two, but the only one I can think of off hand would be Bonnie and Clyde.

2. Watching the coverage

right now, it does look like a white male is in custody. Whether he is the shooter or not, I don't know.

I have heard psychologists say that because of different conditioning, men are more likely vent their rage outwardly whereas women do so inwardly. As a woman, I sense there's some truth to that.

3. Best definition of depression I ever heard was

Depression is anger turned inward. Angry women are more likely to do that then angry men who tend to act out.
