Sticker #092A Profile for Mass Shootings? How About White Suburban Male.
by Joe Biel Author
There's so much political resistance and debate around guns. While gun violence has been on tremendous decline for over 20 years, most of the public has the opposite perception. Debates rage about whether this should be mitigated through gun regulation and control, mental health services, or just continue to be ignored. But mass shootings remain a common variety of gun violence and there's one uncomfortable, yet shockingly consistent fact about the shooters. If bullying caused school shootings, you would see trans shooters, queer shooters, female shooters, POC shooters. Bullying does not cause school shootings; entitlement does. and white boys are the most entitled demographic by far. They have been promised wealth, power, and women-as-commodity in all forms of media since childhood. and when they don't receive it, they react the way mass media has taught them: with glorious violence.
