"Most people forget mass shootings within a month."
They keep happening and happening. People just consume this shock and get BORED with so many mass shootings. They act as if this is entertainment.

It's too common, everything has already been said. Just wait for the next one, and say the same things and move on. It's this circle of modern culture.

Again why Columbine is always relevant having been the first of its kind so after it happened it was the talk for years. Until the next one since Columbine was the reference.

Yeah, the whole "guy shoots a bunch a people then kills himself" thing has become so common people new ones don't get the attention they used to; Who here outside this forums knows of Jiverly Wong? The mass shooters that are remembered today have a gimmick; take 2 school shooters, Brenda Spencer and James Wilson. Both had the same number of victims, 2 dead and 9 wounded. Both attacked elementary schools and both attacked before school shootings were common. Both were taken in alive. Brenda, although no Eric Harris in terms of influence, has had some pop culture influence; she inspired the song I don't like mondays by the boomtown rats, she's had a documentary made on her and her story is retold on sites like reddit. James Wilson, on the other hand, is basically unknown. The Wikipedia page is very short, with only 2 paragraphs on him. The extent of his influence is a couple of newspaper stories and an analysis from Peter Langman. Why? The answer is simple; Brenda had a gimmick; she was a girl for one thing, relatively unseen as mass shooters. She also committed a sniper attack, relatively unique for school shooters Her big gimmick though, is her quote "I don't like Mondays". Freaking perfect; a quote like that is going to be retold and retold for tucking ever. James on the other hand didn't have a gimmick. The attack itself wasn't particularly interesting, je simply went throughout the school shooting. James himself wasn't very interesting either; he was abused and very mentally ill, but nothing particularly interesting or unique. And so Brenda "I don't like Mondays" Spencer achieves a small level of fame, and James Wilson is forgotten forever. so it goes.

Mass shootings in general are becoming more and more of an occurrence in the United States, so much so that when they happen they become less emotionally profound for a lot of people, because in the back of everyone's mind we expect there to be another one. Mass shootings have become an inevitable part of modern life as a consequence of industrialization, the creation of mass culture, and mass communication. New mass shootings only get considerable attention if they occur at uncommon locations or have an unusually high/record breaking amount of deaths. Gimmicks such as the specific type of weapon are always another way for a mass shooter to get everyone's attention. These shootings will only continue to get more and more deadly until the root cause of these shootings are addressed.

Oprah's message:

We came to understand how and why it had happened because you had these kids, boys, who had felt ostracized and put out and not validated by the rest of their school community and their peers.

It was horrific terrifying but I understood it, I understood it, and I also understood that it would happen again and again and again.

A walking red flag buys himself a Glock and AR-15 and shoots a bunch of kids. The parents say "It couldn't happen here!" The police say "This is something that happens all too often." Social media slaves post the same "Our thoughts and prayers are with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]" garbage. The media says "It's video games! It's drugs! It's bullying!" A major politician gets on stage and cries. Schools add even more draconian policies. Rinse and repeat.

The reason why nothing gets done is because social media is all about virtue signalling. Who cares about ACTUALLY being sad when you can just project it? Whenever an actual change that will prevent mass shootings is put out there (Gun control, mental health...) the same social media slaves will just bitch about "politicizing the tragedy" or some other excuse.

Spree shootings don't seem to be a thing anymore, it is now plowing people down in a car.

Mass shootings are still going to be more and more common, although I have noticed a trend of mass killings using other means such as vehicles running over people and even explosives in the case of terrorism. I am willing to bet that mass killings in the western world using vehicles and even explosives will become as common as mass shootings before the 2020s are over, and I am talking in the context of even non terrorist affiliated individuals who committed said acts.

Now the only way a mass shooter has a chance to be remembered is if they do it in a country with strict gun laws.

If a mass shooter wants to be remembered all they need's a gimmick; all the heavy hitters have got one.
