1. Was there an immediate narrative produced by the corporate broadcasting media?
Immediate talking point driven reporting that is near universal in each narrative is almost always false or has much error involved in the presented facts. This was the case with the Giffords shooting in Arizona where it was declared that this was a right wing nut when in fact it was opposite. This same false narrative took place right after the Boston Marathon when almost before the dust cleared the broadcast media was saying it was “homegrown right wing terror.” It takes days and even weeks for a good reporter to get all the facts in truly organic shootings. Yet, often in some of the most horrific shootings, the narrative is down pat by news anchor within the hour as they will declare without hesitation that this was a lone wolf shooter fueled by some racial, governmental or psychopathic tendencies. This narrative should always be challenged as much error most likely embedded within the report including the likelihood of other participants and politically motivated bias is at the heart of the news creation.
2. Why was there no immediate opposition from a concealed weapons carrier?
The debate so often is one sided and goes quickly in the direction of weapon restrictions instead of more weapons being present. In almost every single mass shooting instance, the shooter could have been neutralized quickly by an everyday citizen carrying a weapon.
Although concealed carry might not stop the first few casualties, often it ends the shooting beyond the first few casualties allowing medical access and police assistance much quicker to those who have already been shot. Teachers, mall workers, church goers and on base soldiers should all have the right to defend themselves from the terror that is a mass shooter. When a shooting happens at the schools, the outcry should never be disarm, but instead to arms. There is no real reason a responsible teacher should not be allowed a self defense concealed handgun on their person at all times. Again, arming, not disarming should be the debate as almost one hundred percent of the time the mass shooting happens in a location in which personal concealed handguns are restricted.
3. Did the shooter have any connection to the government?
So often, the shooter is meeting with a psychiatrist who is part of DARPA or works for or has parents who work for the military or the postal service or is in the naval yard or is a psychiatrist at the army base has just returned from or is still in a war zone or serving in the military or has worked with the CIA or whose mom is a teacher. They often have parents who are government employees or employees themselves and although there is no immediate correlation as to why this is that comes to mind, it is still a pattern worth noting and leads to an interesting question as to why the connection to the government might be there including the fact that it is hard to be fired from state employment whereas a civilian job would have fired them long before they “went postal.”
4. What medications was the shooter prescribed or taking?
Psychotropic drugs can cause an absolute detachment from reality. This detachment combined with other detached reality mimickers such as TV, Movies, and video games can cause an extremely distorted behavior that leads to the perpetrator acting out in violent and unpredictable ways leading to the sad and tragic situations of others being harmed and killed.
Psychotropic drugs should be prescribed with all caution and to those who really do need them, especially those in their youth, should have extra controls on their lives including extended guardianship as the drugs can cause extreme violence.
This question or fact is usually skipped over by the corporate broadcasting media as they are heavily sponsored and funded by the same companies who produced the product causing the unattached behavior originally.
5. Did the shooter play an excessive amount of video games?
This question goes hand in hand with the psychotropic drugs yet it is key to understanding why those on the drugs need excess monitoring. Because this loose correlation exists with mass shooters, prescribing physicians should be taught to inquire into gaming habits before putting their volatile patient on drugs. Not to attack video games, but if the shooter often played an excess amount of video games, this could bring up a public health issue worth looking into closer.
