Yes - but it's very tiny
No - these kids are gonna snap regardless of the media hype

Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

I was gonna vote the snow option - but I don't mind snow.
I voted No. That they would do it anyway.
However, now that I think about it, they use media to promote gun control and put pressure on politicians to support gun control legislation, which disarms good people, thus making it easier for people like that. And harder for people to defend from that.
I think the media does play its part and also influences the next shooter to immediately think of what took place at the last shooting. How the Cops respond, people, the whole bit. If the school had safeguards. Did they search or are there metal detectors like they have in some Chicago schools. I think all this gives the next one up a generalized road map.....and that's not even with what they have thought up in their own head.
