So again, the question should be, why are there so many dangerous lunatics running loose to began with? Or if they are relatively normal, then why are they snapping?

The real question is there really " many dangerous lunatics running loose"? With a population of 310 million what is considered the norm? We have this large group of people and when just one of them freaks out it is nationwide coverage.

There are also 500k to million murders every year, WOW! Seems like a wow until you see that it is out of 7 billion people.

So what if 1 in a million freaked out every year that would mean 310 mass killings every year...even 1 in 10 million would still be 31 per year, but it is a lot smaller.

Below is the past 21 years of mass gun killings and as far as I know guns were around the whole time and as readily available. It does seem that there is an up tick over the last few years, so is it really guns or something else? Do we work on the impossible task of keeping guns out of their hands or do we figure out the other factors and eliminate those? Also in 2012/2013 how many were motivated by a copy cat scenario?
