As mass shootings have increased across the nation, people are starting to look below the surface for some of the driving factors. The data is revealing some important details.
In a new report featuring the July 4 shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, mental health issues and drugs are standing out as key concerns. The Highland Park shooter was covered in tattoos on his face, ranted on social media about violence and other odd issues and had been encountered by law enforcement before.
The factors the left continues to push are race and guns. But the data does fit. Mass shootings are almost exclusively propagated by young males, but they are at the hands of people from all colors and backgrounds.
In addition, it could be argued that 50 years ago more young men had guns in their home and easier access to them, but it has only been in recent years that mass shootings have become more common. It’s not the access to guns. It’s the people using them.
If mental health and drugs are key issues, then maybe more attention should go to these areas instead of race and gun control. That’s the argument made in the video. Check it out now for more about the motivations behind recent mass shootings.
