2. I blame a lot of these shootings on most men idolizing the wild west.

It's the stories of the cowboys and Indians that kids play as children but never outgrow. Even I, as a kid, idolized Wyatt Earp, Hop Along Cassidy, Zorro, and The Lone Ranger & Tonto. I'm female, but I had a silver plated revolver with ivory (plastic) grips. Mention those things to grown men and the majority get that silly grin. The way they are able to be a little like those idols is by having their very own gun!

The shooter today was another story, but was enabled by the American love affair with the wild west and their guns.
