"According to a study compiled by Mother Jones magazine, from 1982 to 2011
there was a mass shooting* every 172 days. From 2011 to 2014 there was one
every 64 days on average. As of Nov. 17 of 2017, there have been 13 such
shootings, meaning one every 24.7 days. The same study also shows a steady
increase since the 1980s....


"So, you have a volatile brew: Mass narcissism and repression of natural
empathy, increased loneliness and alienation, legitimization of taking of
human life, and a gun obsession. It’s inevitable that some will snap under
these conditions. In fact, as long as the social pressures continue and as
long as people continue to feel isolated and alienated, we can expect to
see a further increase in this sort of violence...."
