    Re: Who or What is most responsible for the mass shootings

    While I can see only two that don't apply, since the question said "Most", I have to go with the individual doing the shooting.

    Re: Who or What is most responsible for the mass shootings

    Looks like the guy was legitimately crazy and should have been in a padded room.

    In that case, I see these problem areas
    the shooter himself (obviously)
    the legal/mental health system for not sticking this guy in the funny farm
    society in general for not setting up and enforcing the correct procedures to identify and segregate people like this due to political bickering causing obvious needs such as this to be missed

    Re: Who or What is most responsible for the mass shootings

    I voted for "the shooters" but I am going to change it to "Gun free zones." Mass shootings take place where no one in that mass has a weapon other than the agressor. In fact, these shooters dont usually engage in an armed battle once the cavalry arrives, but take their own lives instead. Guns dont cause mass killings, they end them.

    Because you're thinking is mono dimensional.

    Chinese Alchemists invented gun powder, originally used in fireworks but expanded to firearms use.

    No gunpowder, no bullets, no guns, no shooters.

    Gunpowder was, according to prevailing academic consensus, discovered in the 9th century in China, attributed to Chinese alchemists searching for an elixir of immortality.[4] This discovery led to the invention of fireworks and the earliest gunpowder weapons in China. In the centuries following the Chinese discovery, gunpowder weapons began appearing in the Arab world, Europe, and India. The consensus is that this was spread from China, through the Middle East, and then into Europe.[5]
    Berthold the Black lived, allegedly, during the 14th century. You missed the window by only 500 years.

    The shooter(s). are responsible. Each of us is responsible for our actions. Doesn't matter if the person is sane or not. For even the insane makee decisions, though some of the decisions may not be rational based upon a sane persons values.
