FSA: Do you believe there is a profile of a school shooter? Are there predictable patterns?
Joseph Lieberman: Yes and no. By that I mean the profile is morphing.
In the nineties, your typical school shooter had an above-average intelligence, small build, white, middle to upper-middle class student who had been bullied. Now it’s changing.
This century there has been an increase in the number of non-white school shooters, such as Seung-Hui Cho, the Virginia Tech shooter. Before him there was Kimveer Gill, for example, in Montreal who was from Indian heritage. On Sept. 13th, 2006, he shot 20 students, killing one young woman at Montreal’s Dawson College, using a 9-mm semi-automatic rifle, a .45-caliber pistol and a 12-caliber gun that can pump four bullets with each squeeze of the trigger. Kimveer was obsessed about using firearms to make up for his shortcomings, writing, “I love guns… I really do. The great equalizer.”

thisguyrighthere, you have a gun as your avatar and you don't know anything about guns or ammo? You really are trying to fool people with that avatar.
You wrote: "Suddenly a run of the mill pump shotgun has become a 12 caliber (12 inch diameter cannon?) tube launching 4 simultaneous projectiles. I think 000 buck is 6 pellets."
A 12 caliber gun is basically a BB gun, not a gun with a 12 inch diameter bore like a cannon.
000 buck is the size of the pellets, not the amount of pellets.
