Without knowing all the particulars of this case today. Other school shootings have been the result of kids snapping as a result of bullying. The
shootings are a statement of rage and anger, not some nebulous nefarious plot to conquer the world.
Speaking from the standpoint of a victim of bullying, before I learned to defend myself, I understand only too well the anger and rage that needs and
wants a target to vent at. Only too well do I understand. Everyone around you is guilty of attacking you, no one is innocent.
In investigating this, I would suggest that we try to explain what triggers some to go on the rampage, and others, like myself, don't.
A plot to trigger gun control legislation? I suppose so, but it'll be the same crowd that always screams for it, not some nebulous group bent on
global domination. This'll be additional fuel on that fire.
My thought process on this issue isn't always of the clearest, most of these incindents are perpetrated by very troubled individuals.
