5. The pattern I notice is...

that shooters most commonly have externally-induced rage toward some "other" whether it be race, nationality, sexual orientation, religion or social status and typically an untreated mental issue allows the fear to explode in violence. The people most vulnerable appear to be minorities, LGBT persons, non-Christians and immigrants and so their gathering places are most often attacked.

If we can somehow eliminate or substantially reduce those sources of fear mongering, improve unity in our communities and boot up improved mental health treatment, that could go a long way toward eliminating many of these events.
