I've noticed that the most well known shooters have a "gimmick"; Something interesting about them that can be said in a single sentence. The severity of the attacks is a very important factor (as seen with many of the people on this list), but a good gimmick can make up for a low kill count (see Brenda Spencer).

Charles Whitman: Sniper. Brain tumor. Killed mother/wife.
Brenda Spencer: "I Don't Like Mondays". Girl. Sniper.
Eric/Dylan: I don't even need to explain this one.
Seung Hui Cho: First major college shooting since Whitman.
James Holmes: Attacked movie theater.
Adam Lanza: Elementary school.
Elliot Rodger: Misogynist at a time when that was a hot button issue..

With the decreasing publicity of recent shootings, as well as the increasing prevalence/publicity of terror attacks, what do you think the next big killer will do? What will their gimmick be? Will there even be a next big killer?

A lot of people identify with Elliot Rodger, and some people on YouTube who talk about identifying with Elliot Rodger also show signs of being suicidal/homicidal (see Kleine Deville and Alexander Layko) so I think the next big shooter's gimmick will be the same as Elliot Rodger's.

Apart from the ISIS terrorist who don't do a "bad job" at carrying out their attacks and keeping them a secret during the planning time I think the next attack may be even something against this whole thing of religious nonsense. Maybe sometime someone walks into a mosque and shots prayers and gets a decent kill count , to be honest was there even ever a bigger attack at a religious building? Apart from the 2007 new life shootings although Matthew Murray could have done much more damage if he wouldn't have been shot by police
