Three things drive these nut cases. First they want power and attention. They want it for as long as possible so they chose a place where there will be no one to shoot back for a while.

Second, they want fame. The press gives them that right away and for weeks afterwards.

Thirdly they want to be “understood”. The press, after a few days gives them that by trying to ‘find out what went wrong in this young life’.

This leads the next crazy to think it is a good way to go out.

The solution:

1) Ban gun free zones.
2) Ban naming the killer in the press.
3) Ban the press from trying to “understand” the whack job and instead only refer to him in derogatory terms. In other words, treat the shooter like he was a Republican running for office.

Sure, this will never happen; but if it did the copy cats would end and we’d go back to it being an almost unheard of situation.
