There isn’t just one cause. It’s a complex equation with numerous factors. To list a few....smart phones, social media, movies & tv, video games. Also as a society we’ve moved away from religion. Not saying I agree with religion, but i think it has had an effect on moral values.
I think you are right, but I think ADD and ADHD drugs they pump kids full of now adds to it as well

Many of the mass-shootings today are motivated by right-wing extremism. At the moment, Fox News and Trump are fear-mongering about migrants and brewing up hate for them in such a way that it is influencing mass shooters.
I’ll bet a mass shooter feels like there is a big issue that no one takes seriously, so they do something about it themselves.
The PizzaGate guy was so into that conspiracy that he took a gun to the pizza parlor in question.
When propaganda starts distorting reality, it can cause people to turn violent.

Do people really want to find the root cause or our they just taking advantage of a tragedy to push political agenda?
When did all the mass shootings start gaining in number?
Was it when women started entering the workforce and feminism kicked into high gear?
Was it when prayer was removed from schools?
Was it when participation trophies became normal?
Was it when spanking Jonny became taboo?
Was it when marriage became a joke?
Do people really and truly want to find the answer or is it just political?

Lack of human interaction due to convenience of the internet, which creates lack of compassion and empathy towards other human beings.
