Florida has far more urban centres where people are grouped more closely together. Does CNN have any stats comparing Wyoming and Florida's average amount of guns per gun owner?

Not trying to make a point. Just adding some numbers to the mix that seem to contradict the "more guns = more mass shootings" narrative.
Do better. Do you have any numbers on what happens when you introduce devices that can exclusively be used to maim or kill into a society?

I think I get what you’re saying.
Exactly what I'm saying. Like, we have less abundance of guns than before yet more mass shootings. I'm not going to make a pro-gun stance out of it, just that it's obviously a deeper problem than just guns. Or pay attention to the old trend of mailmen shooting up their work places. Like, okay, get rid of guns, IDGAF, but let's talk about why they are doing it too.

It's possible, I think social media isolates us more than it connects us.

So it isn't just another school shooting, it's another right wing extremist shooting. 71% of extremist acts of terrorism in the US comes from right wing extremists. So why are we so afraid of Muslims?

What was the reason he did this?

BBC describes him as a depressed loner. Doesn't say anything about it being political or terrorism.

It is quite plainly terrorism just like every single civilian mass shooting.
