Chicago had a busy weekend too...
3 Killed, 19 Wounded In Weekend Shootings Across Chicago « CBS Chicago
These copycat shooters are just following the mass media's queue, because all they do is give 24 hour footage to the killers whenever stuff like this happens. News networks are directly responsible for this repeating over and over because they give too much air time to these incidents. The crazies who snap and shoot up Churches are learning that they can earn some level of legitimacy when they carry out their acts.
Here in Canada, if a mad man shoots down a bunch of people, the RCMP lock down the scene and we don't hear anything until they complete their investigation. Then again, mass shootings aren't that common here because we don't let crazy people have guns.
Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
