It's not guns or ARs, but mental health & social media

Interesting video, search YouTube for: sO5W9vk55w4
(we cannot post links here).

Watch from 12:40 to 19:10.

The point the author makes is that what has changed since the increase in "active shooter incidents" since 2010 is the widespread reach and use of social media that has exacerbated mental health problems.

He does point out that "correlation does not mean causation", but that "dose-response" is a better indicator for causation; then he shows how "active shooter incidents" increased as youngsters indulged in more and more social media.

Other than those news prominent "active shooter incidents", video shows that gun violence has not changed that much (even decreased) since the 70s, 80s.
Life is simply an inter-temporal problem of constrained optimization.

This may be a societal issue, but it's not really a "Law & Civil Rights" issue.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
