Default Cowardly mass shooters

I think these mass shooters who want notoriety are a bunch of cowards. What kind of bravery does it take to come out armed to the teeth and shoot a bunch of unarmed people? A lot of the time when you look at the lists of victims a lot are women. Makes me think these cowards who do this are often losers with the ladies too. When people lived back in the days of duals this didn't happen. If you were itching to shoot someone you could have your chance, and they'd have a gun too. Seems fair to me. I say bring back dueling for those who are so trigger happy. Let them see what the other side of the gun is like. Some idiots in a car just shot guns near my unarmed mom and dad 2 nights ago when they were out by the road on their own property, just to be asses and scare them, so I'm a little riled up I suppose. I'm glad I wasn't there because I probably would have shot back. /rantover

They generally are cowards and usually carry out their acts where they are least likely to encounter armed resistance. Others are ready to die for some whack a doodle cause, but again choose to carry out their acts where they are least likely to meet meaningful resistance so as to get as high a body count as they can before some arrives to stop them.

​​​​Some are known to have carried out their acts in the hope of making themselves a household name. While the media whine about the public having a "Right to know" the names of these people I believe publicizing them helps to inspire copy cats. Rather than giving non stop coverage and plastering the names and pictures of the shooters all over everything, I would like to see limited coverage with no personal identifying information on the shooter. The could just say anyone wanting the shooters name can contact the public information officer of the lead law enforcement agency.

I'm with you on that, I hear there are websites devoted to idolizing the Columbine shooters etc. What a load of crap. If they're going to show nonstop coverage for anyone let it be the victims so that these notoriety seekers fail. Totally agree with what you said.

Not a mass shooting but shares some similarities.

The idiot that killed John Lennon stated he did it only to become famous. Thing is I can't for the life of me think of his name, and if I could I wouldn't even mention it.

Yep, bunch of pussies, dishonorable losers. What asshole wants to shoot up places like a school? I don't even know what they expect to gain from that? A bunch of broken families, sounds awesome. They could atleast be like rambo and go do some cool shit if they have a death wish.

They are losers that want to live in inphany this is the only way they are going to be recognized for somthing. “Well I don’t care about my life but want to be famous without any effort”. I’m conflicted though I beleve in free speach but the media prehaps should stop giving these people the spot light. Its like hey if I murder 12 people I could be on national news and have a Wikipedia page.

These people need to be highlighted as cowardly pussies and their family’s shamed as well. Really emphasize them as DBs in every way. And, if they didn’t killed during their bullshit, put them in the public stockade for a few years.

I know his name but it isn't worth saying. I remember reading this too, and I remember one newspaper (probably an underground newspaper) printing a headline that said "Some asshole just shot John Lennon" and in the story saying he just did it to get famous so this newspaper isn't printing his name. I thought that was great.

A mass shooting at the police station, that would at least be somewhat "fair" because everyone who they're shooting at has guns. I still don't think it is right, don't get me wrong. But seems way less pansy assed than a school full of women and children who are unarmed.

"Shooting" implies that only one person has a gun. "Gunfight" sounds much more like what a halfass noble human being would do. In a gunfight there should be other person(s) with guns.

It's all about tactical advantage,the aspiring murderer selects a victim pool that will be massed,of a known group that the murderer wants to target,an area not easily exited from and is unlikely to be able to defend themselves.Gun free zones are a first choice.The murderers are cowards in the same sense that a lion or a wolf will target the old,wounded or weak victim for a meal that offers the least risk.Pretty simple concept really.That's why all churches,mosques and temples should encourage and put in place armed defenders to protect their flocks.Same could be said for schools.Politics aside,common sense solutions are out their.They need to be put in place with no fanfare or need to publish details.Obviously "gun control" measures only affect the law abiding citizens,never the criminal,so that's out.

Some people say there is no such thing as bad publicity. If someone does something like this with their ultimate goal being that everyone knows their name, they don't care what you say about them as long as you say their name. Even calling them a coward rewards their behavior by you using their name. Putting them on any kind of public display makes them something to be spoken about.
I say give them absolutely nothing.
