With the 3rd Active Shooter incident in less than 45 days, you are probably wondering what is happening here? Why are we having so many active shooters?
There are not any easy answers, but one thing is certain, all the shooters in the Navy Yard Shooting, the Sparks Middle School shooting, and the LAX Shooter all suffered from psychological problems.
In the LAX shooting, the shooter ‘s parent had tried to contact the police because of a suicide text they had received, but it was already too late.
Police red tape being what it is – thorough, the urgency was lost and the incident was already in process before anything had been done.
BUT NOTE: The text was a HELP ME. And it was noticed, but not followed up in time.
All these shooters had major mental issues, that people had noticed, and
that people had remarked on, and that people had worried about.
We don’t know where all the guns in the incidents were purchased, or just picked up at home and taken to the scene.
BUT we know that most of the active shooters had mental issues, which means that the screenings must be approved, and more help available for these individuals, before they can kill or hurt others.
