Commonalities in Mass Shooters
Mass shooters experience childhood
trauma and exposure to violence at a young age.
Mass shooters reach a noticeable crisis point,
becoming angry, despondent, and suicidal.
Mass shooters study other mass shooters to find
validation for their method and motive to kill.
Once mass shooters commit to their plan,
they need access to people, places, and firearms.
