Let's ban people from wearing all black. It screams massacre inflicter.
No, it's not. Being surrounded by "normal" society (aka classmates), who feel the need to torture people who are different is the massacre inflicter. You never hear about the high school football star doing this shit. It's always the outcast kid, because, for some reason, the "popular" kids tend to forget on a semi-annual basis about shit like Columbine going down.
There's a couple types of breed of these high school shooter types:
First, you got the kid who truely hates his classmates for one reason or another: He is bullied by the douchebag football star types, rejected by the females, or has had some sort of physical/mental abuse occur in his life. (Or just a combo of all 3). He does the damage. He usually is smarter in his planning. (Usually higher intellect). He doesn't run his mouth (The "quiet" type.) He is usually very specific in his choosing of targets.
Then you have the poser kids who play Counterstrike/Halo 3/etc with the gay ass username (usually bookended like this: xXXNoobletnameXXx), and they feel the need to "make others pay", because they think they are mistreated, but don't even have a clue how bad mistreatment is. They just think being violent is "the in thing" to do. These are the same douchebags that give Jack Thompson fuel for his "games cause violence" fire. No, it's the brain-washed, Walmart-shopping, "gotta have drama", "gotta be noisy", Soulja-boy listening, pieces of shit like this second example that cause the majority of the problems in society. (Like I've always said: "Ignorance breeds"). They usually run their mouths on online message boards about their plans, don't really have a plan, randomly shoot people,and usually puss out in the end.
