A bar in California, 12 dead.  Well shit.


In one of the safest cities in the United States, so they said.


Exactly.

The FBI ranked it the 4th safest city with more than 100,000 people in the entire country.

And it's also very white, and very wealthy.

But the shooting was clearly caused by the black gang bangers in Obama's Chicago.

Okay, the safest city in the US is not devoid of crime.  People still drink and drive, there's probably at least 1 psycho who want attention, and are running out of ideas how to get it.

"The Safest City In America" isn't a guarantee, it's a hedged bet.  Shit happens, everywhere.  I don't see any schools being shot up in Compton.  Spree shooters are statistical outliers, they defy the odds, most people don't bring a semi-automatic to school for attention.  Columbine isn't ghetto, it's a suburb.

Of course.

But I think you missed my point...

Nope, just made another point.  We can both have them...

There's Nothing More American Than Survivors of One Mass Shooting Being Caught in Another

Quote
Speaking with CBS News, Nicholas Champion estimated that there had been “probably 50 or 60 others” who, like him, were survivors of the Las Vegas massacre in attendance at the Borderline bar on Wednesday during the shooting.

Don Lemon of CNN got in hot water when he said something on the order that white males are the terrorists we have to fear most. Looking back on the past couple of years involving mass shootings, he may just be right.

Domestically.  There are international threats as well, but those can generally be handled overseas.  Domestic Terrorists tend to be white males (With some outliers) and have very distinctive warning signs to look for.  Also, if you class Serial Killers (Look at contemporary reports of let's say Zodiac, and BTK's "Reign of Terror") that expands the profile quite a bit.

However, though Profiling is basically our Only tool for stopping them before their suicide runs, it's not Racial Profiling.  This is very important:  The Male Part is much more significant, while the majority are White males, that's statistically and psychologically consistent, because of the Socioeconoomic Position.  If you look at the Spree Shooters, they're bye and large Legal Gun Owners. Most of those are White Males.

Other types of Domestic Terrorists may use other types of weapons.  For contrast, Richard Ramirez "The Night Stalker" used knives, guns, and a bunch of blunt tools.  However, his weapon of choice was Rape.  He raped women to terrorize California.  So did a lot of others (Most of them white.)  Charles Manson's preferred weapons were impressionable hippies, because he had access to, and control over them.  (I think we can all agree that Manson was a Domestic Terrorist.)

At the time, they were called Sexually Motivated Serial Killers (By the FBI BAU)  We don't really have those any more.  Now, we have more Spree Shooters, and they attack with remarkable consistency.  Because of the Media Coverage, not only are they literally Triggered by the violence, but also by the Attention.  That's their motive, if they wanted money, they'd rob banks instead.

The most attention, and Fear can be gotten at a school.  If they don't have a more specific symbolic target in mind.  (Churches, and other houses of Worship like Synagogues, and Mosques are becoming more popular.)  

If you take away their guns, they'll just use pipe bombs, and molotovs.  They don't have to shoot, that's just symbolic.  Just like they don't have to shoot Schools.  If we put in enough security there, they'll just switch targets.

The sad part now is that Thousand Oaks is mandatorily being evacuated because of the fires. Terrible that people lost their loved ones to a nut job and now they may not be able to bury them for a while.
