    No, I would assume that has to do with demographics.

    [edit] I posted before seeing Muhummed's response (post 20). Thanks Muhummed, well put.

    10News - Mass, multiple murders rates constant despite overall decline in homicides12172012 - News Story

    Whites make up 78.1% of the population in the US but account for a mere 60% of mass murders. And blacks only account for 13.1% of the US population but a whopping 36% of mass murders.
    Catawba, I'm not sure if you asked that question genuinely seeking information, or if you were trying to show mocking sarcasm, but if it's the latter, you should be a little more thoughtful before you unleash it, and think about what you're saying/asking.

    You obviously didn't think too hard about this statement.

    It's because the vast majority of the population of people are white. And whites actually have a lower percentage.

    Thanks!
    Maybe women who are suicidal pathetic losers do not have this "If I'm going die I'm going to take as many people with me as possible and I want my 15 minutes of fame" mentality and therefore will just shoot themselves,lock themselves in garage with the car running, over dose on pills or some other drug, jump from a tall building,slit their wrists or some other means of suicide that doesn't involve taking others with them. Maybe women who are suicidal pathetic losers can't handle a firearm as well as their male counterparts. Maybe women who are suicidal pathetic losers are more likely to get help. Who knows why the handful of mass shootings in this country are mostly perpetrated by males.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Maybe we are looking at this wrong
    It is a fact that women live longer than men.
    Leave out the word MASS in the OP, and think about it.....and if what your wife cooks for you tastes funny, bear in mind that the weapon of choice for women is usually poison.

    Could it be that man and Women's brains are actually wired a little different?

    Women have no need for the penis substitutes that make mass murders easier to commit

    I do not know, a guess is silly and wasteful.

    Maybe there are more women mass murderers but they never get caught because they use other non-traditional means of killing people.

    Women are better at it and rarely get caught.

    I prefer angry sex to multiple killings as a form of stress relief.
