    1. The murderer himself.

    2. Gun-free zones... almost all mass shootings happen in one.

    3. The murderers' family in many cases, for failing to realize their family member was a loose cannon about to go off and not taking action.

    4. The mental health and justice system for failing in early intervention of the dangerously mentally ill and habitual youthful offenders.

    I agree but that sort of runs contrary to your desire for more gun regulations that would not impact the shooters given in almost every case they were either facing the death penalty or killed themselves

    All the above because all of them cause issues.

    so it was a lack of mental health care that caused the shooters to snap? and given many were upper middle class people are you saying that their families could not afford private intervention? would a wealthy kid even be able to get public mental health care if RWR had not "dismantled our nation's healthcare system"
