You are correct we are desensitized to this kind of horror I'm not feeling a lot.

Kinda like a bomb killing 2 people in Pakistan. Just another day.

They should probably redefine "mass shooting" to killing 10 or more to keep them newsworthy.

It seems that a lot of these mass or spree shooters have difficulty handling rejection by women or girls. In the days before the Uvalde shooting, the shooter was participating in gaming chats and threatening to rape girls who refused his advances. We need to do a better job of educating young men to understand that having a sexual partner is not an entitlement. Kids raised on a combination of porn, video games, Netflix and social media develop unrealistic expectations about intimate relationships, and lash out when they feel cheated out of the experiences they are led to believe they deserve.

"It seems that a lot of these mass or spree shooters have difficulty handling rejection by women or girls."
Beyond the mass shootings, almost all gun violence is done by men. And a lot of it is directed at women. Women are more likely to be killed by someone they know than a stranger.

"In the days before the Uvalde shooting, the shooter was participating in gaming chats and threatening to rape girls who refused his advances"
As usual, the girls called him out for that.
And as usual, the girls were ignored.

"We need to do a better job of educating young men to understand that having a sexual partner is not an entitlement."
Good luck competing with an Internet that tells them what they want to hear.

"Kids raised on a combination of porn, video games, Netflix and social media develop unrealistic expectations about intimate relationships"
Thanks, First Amendment!

"and lash out when they feel cheated out of the experiences they are led to believe they deserve."
Thanks, Second Amendment!

Anyway, I pretty much agree with your comments.

Our gun problem is almost entirely an Angry, Entitled Man With A Gun problem.

Originally only men got to vote, now the 2nd should only apply to women. No guns for men, unless the owner loans the gun to them.

Authorities allege Whitlatch was at Derringer's Public Parlor on Main Street on Oct. 23 when he twice put his hand down a woman's pants and attempted to penetrate her vagina. Surveillance video of the incident showed Whitlatch put his hand down the woman's pants once around 7:38 p.m. She stepped away, and he pulled her back, and he allegedly put his hand in her pants at about 7:44 p.m., according to court records.

He was obviously influenced by the demented orange pedo.

So why did he still have a gun on June 3?

Gun Culture has a pretty substantial Veen Diagram overlap with Rape Culture.
Here's an example from the story:
"gunman... had recently been charged with harassing one of the victims in what authorities described as a "domestic situation."

If he was a star, they'd let him do it.

A "star" shot a camerawoman in the face and he's still roaming free.

When will churches learn their parking lots should only have one door!

You know this wouldn't be happening if they let God back inside churches!

The Internet?

We have an entire political party built around an old rich fat guy who literally said guys are entitled to sex from women and should grab them by the -----.

And you're telling me its the fault of the internet?
