Why do people become killers?  There are only three reasons.

[Mr. Wallace is correct in the three motives he cites but he errs when he calls them the “only” motives.  He misses at least three others;  ReligionMental Illness , and  Demonic Possession .]

Leftist, Anti-Christian Culture — Not Guns — Is At The Root Of Most Mass Shootings

Why ‘Gun Control’ Will Never Prevent, Or Likely Even Reduce, Mass Killings

Mass killings are very rare, accounting for only 0.2 percent of homicides every year and approximately 1 percent of homicide victims.
Only 12 percent of mass killings are mass public shootings. Most mass killings are familicides (murders of family members or intimate partners) and felony-related killings (such as robberies gone awry or gang-related ‘turf battles’).
Although there has been a slight increase in the frequency of mass public shootings over the past few years, the rates are still similar to what the United States experienced in the 1980s and early 1990s.
Over 90 percent of public mass shootings take place in ‘gun-free zones’ where civilians are not permitted to carry firearms.
A complete ban on “assault weapons” will save very few lives: Six out of every 10 mass public shootings are carried out by handguns alone, while only one in 10 is committed with a rifle alone.
The average age of mass public shooters is 34, which means that increasing the minimum age for purchasing firearms would not target the main perpetrators of mass public shootings.
Few mass public shooters have used “high-capacity magazines,” and there is no evidence that the lethality of their attacks would have been affected by delays of two to four seconds to switch magazines. In fact, some of the largest mass shootings in U.S. history were carried out with “low-capacity” weapons:
The Virginia Tech shooter killed 32 and injured 17 with two handguns, one of which had a 10-round magazine and the other a 15-round magazine. He simply brought 19 extra magazines.
Twenty-three people were killed and another 20 injured in a Killeen, Texas, cafeteria by a man with two 9mm handguns, capable of maximums of 15-round and 17-round magazines, respectively.
A mentally disturbed man armed with two handguns and a shotgun shot and killed 21 people in a San Ysidro McDonald’s and injured another 19. The handguns utilized 13-round and 20-round magazines, and the shotgun had a five-round capacity.
60 percent of mass public shooters had been diagnosed with a mental disorder or had demonstrated signs of serious mental illness prior to the attack.
A large body of research shows a statistical link between mass public killings and serious untreated psychiatric illness.
The United States does not have an extraordinary problem with mass public shootings compared to other developed countries.
After adjusting for population differences, many other developed countries have worse problems with mass public shootings than the United States has.
There were 27 percent more casualties per capita from mass public shootings in the European Union than in the U.S. from 2009 to 2015.
Mass killers often find ways to kill even without firearms [see examples in article].
In other countries, bombings, mass stabbings, and car attacks frequently kill more people than even the deadliest mass shootings in the United States [see examples in article].

Mass shooting survivor argues against new gun control plan

GunControl

———————

Raising the minimum age to purchase firearms wouldn’t have [prevented] 29 of the 30 worst mass-shootings in U.S. history…  Chicago, a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation… saw 762 gun deaths and experienced 4,331 shootings in 2016 alone…  France [which — like Chicago– also bans so-called ‘assault’ rifles and most hand guns endured] 532 casualties from mass-shootings in 2015 alone.  As a comparison, America — with five times France’s population — experienced only 527 casualties from mass-shootings over an eight-year period from 2009 to 2016.

Even the federal government defines and counts mass shootings in inconsistent and murky ways.

https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2018/02/another-school-shootingbut-whos-counting/553412/

[The point?  Data on these incidents are inconsistently measured and reported.  Therefore the data are often unreliable.  Policy-making from such inconsistent data is therefore  just as inconsistent and unreliable.]

New Gun Policies Won’t Stop Mass Shootings, but People Can
The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler (hardly an NRA apologist) famously fact-checked Marco Rubio’s assertion that new gun laws wouldn’t have prevented any recent mass shootings and declared it true…  Looking at the deadliest mass shootings since Columbine, we see that the warning signs were there, time and again.  People could  have made a difference.

[But they didn’t, either because they thought laws and law enforcement would protect them or — as was certainly the case in Parkland, FL, the members of law enforcers were blatantly derelict in their sworn duties to protect and defend the innocent].

… the [‘Joker’] shooter at the theater in Aurora, Colo., had other theaters between his home and his ultimate target that he could have chosen.  Yet, the one he picked was the one that publicly proclaimed itself gun-free… in other school shooting incidents, such as at a high school in Pearl, Miss., the shooter’s spree was cut short by the presence of an armed citizen able to shoot back… and it was the guard’s presence [at Columbine High School in 1999] and the resistance he and others offered that kept the carnage less than it might have been [there].

Crime study: Handguns, not ‘assault rifles,’ used in most mass shootings

http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/crime-study-no-rise-in-mass-shootings-despite-media-hype/article/2542118

Banning Weapons of Mass Murder:

Contrary to [liberal] belief, [many so-called ‘assault weapons’ are] legal outside the United States.  Canadians, for example, can purchase a Tavor or similar rifle with a basic firearms license. New Zealanders can purchase a ‘featureless’ AR-15 with a basic firearms license; they can also purchase one with a pistol grip and flash-suppressor if they are willing to go through the paperwork.  Further, feature tests do not make much sense as policy.  There is no reason to believe that pistol grips, forward grips, telescoping stocks, or barrel shrouds increase the lethality of a firearm.

and…

Democrats want to ban ‘assault’ weapons. Such a ban was tried before and rejected because it did not work.  Congress passed the Federal Assault Weapons Ban in 1994.        It was so ineffective that Congress did not renew it in 2004.
