Copy cat crimes have always been a problem.
I think constant media coverage inspires the nuts.
Just a couple of days after the Sandy Hook shootings a legal analyst of FOX (Black guy, former cop but I can’t remember his name) he said pretty much the same. Too much attention will inspire others who want to be famous.

...In the upstate New York town of Hudson Falls, police in body armor carried unloaded weapons and negotiated with an acting hostage-taker Monday during a drill at an elementary school, including younger students, in what had been a middle- and high-school exercise before December's shooting of 20 first-graders and six adults in Newtown, Conn.

Champaign, Illinois County Sheriff: The problem isnt guns or magazines, its the mentally ill
January 31, 2013
Champaign County Sheriff Dan Walsh.
EXCLUSIVE TO GUNS SAVE LIFE.com (for now)
Champaign County Sheriff Dan Walsh has weighed in on the hysterical call by Democratic Party leaders to ban guns, limit magazine capacities and impose all sorts of other restrictions both in Springfield and in Washington, D.C.
While he doesnt come out and say hes not going to enforce further gun bans, he does cover a number of points that are just common sense around here:
Right to carry will deter crime.
Americas favorite rifle, the AR-15, isnt criminally misused around here.
Magazine capacity isnt an issue.
Cops here, including him, support law-abiding citizens right to carry and possess firearms of all sorts.
The real problem for his department is mental health issues.
Sheriff Walsh probably isnt going to earn himself any free donuts for the department from Governor Quinns office, and certainly not from Senator Durbin or President Obama, but he calls it like he sees it.
I prefer to say to the MSM:
Stop shouting Fire! in crowded schools.
When other attacks happen, the Media acts shocked. innocent, and pure as wind driven snow.
