Why do mass shooters do it?

4 common traits have been found:

  1. Early childhood trauma and adverse childhood experience (ACEs)
  2. "an identifiable crisis point in the weeks or months leading up to the shooting"
  3. "[M]ost of the shooters had studied the actions of other shooters and sought validation for their motives... They [mass shootings] are socially contagious."
  4. "[T]he shooters all had the means to carry out their plans."
