I would not even consider this a mass shooting.
Also while shootings that are mass or even murder/suicide are becoming a more seen/known about occurrence, I think the real issue here is the why.
As I said there was a recent event very much like this not far south of St. Louis just last week. I think this shows what is starting to happen in the
Midwest. This is an area that often sees the effects of the economy last if at all when there are problems. In the last two years we are seeing houses
being foreclosed on when other areas of the U.S. were seeing it years before this. I am almost certain that money/debt was the reason for the shooting
that took place here. I also believe it has something to do with this shooting as well. Of course this is speculation, I will not deny that. However,
looking at what information we have it seems logical to start looking in that direction.
Of course not long ago St. Louis was considered the most dangerous city in the U.S. However, in recent years there have been a steady increase of CCW
permits issued. The classes are often filled very quickly.
All that being said and back to my original point, I think the real issue here is we are seeing the Midwest seeing what other parts of the country
have been seeing for years. The country as a whole is becoming more unstable as the jobs fall away and the economy goes deeper and deeper. Add to all
of that the growing unrest about government overstepping their bounds and the public looks to be on the verge of a boiling point.
I am starting to wonder if we will start seeing on a large scale what we are seeing in other places with rioting and protesting. Those in the top
might be smiling now, but I wonder if in the backs of their minds they are feeling that they are soon to be ripped from their posts.
