Pick what you think contributes the most to the recent shootings/violence around the world.
Just about everything EXCEPT guns. Guns have been around for hundreds of years. This is a recent epidemic which interestingly enough took place AFTER the dems failed to ratify their pet UN small arms regulations bill. But thats another story. Parents now coddle their children , teaching non existent harmony at home , so when faced with real world bullies, kids now cant handle it and snap. The law fails to harshly punish violent offenders while burying minor ones. The school system pays no attn to those with problems or special needs often warehousing them in "retarded" classes. Smh. Its a dominoe effect caused by demographic and societal change. Generation Z is to blame.
[@613918,IAmJess] in the 80s there WERENT a bunch of mass shootings. This is POST 2000 shit. Thems the FACTS
[@582038,FelixLegion] Yeah, but it's not Gen Z peeps doing most of the shooting. And the Columbine thing was 1999. Gen Z's weren't even born.
[@613918,IAmJess] I never said totally non existing. But en masse never happened. Btw. Its never conservative repub kids shooting. Its largely leftist family children. 🤔

Well seeing as overpopulation is a myth.

There's no single contributing factor to the violence itself. or rather the violence is both too complicated and overly simple.

what we can do is circumvent the violence with laws. Humans will find a way to kill each other regardless. Guns just make it convenient. That doesn't mean we shouldn't do a better job of making things safe. Nor does that mean that ease at which these weapons are available is completely ok. There are options that we have.
media/mental health/culture
Maybe all the above in small ways and of course varying based on where you are and what your background is. There's not one thing you can point at. I think the big ones are mental health and upbringing.

Before the guns, education, religion and anything else, people fought each other. So the main reason is our human nature.

Too broad a question. Each region has a different reason.
[@10033,hippyjoe1955] in general or rather the best fit to answer the question
