Where It’s Always High Noon . . . . 0

At Psychology Today Blogs, Scott Bonn takes issue with the notion mass shooters are “mentally unhinged individuals who simply ‘snap,'” pointing out that “the majority of mass public shooters are individuals who would not be classified as either clinically or legally insane . . . .” He thinks the problem is much larger, embedded in our very culture and mythos. An excerpt:

Other developed countries that we consider to be our peers simply do not have the problem with mass shooting incidents that we do. It is my contention that the very roots of our mass shooting epidemic may be found in our core cultural value of fierce individualism, a belief in vengeance, and the ethic that might makes right.

Methinks he may be onto something. Follow the link for his arguments.
