The talking heads, especially those with some connexion to law enforcement, are still busy scratching their heads, wondering what motivated Stephen Paddock to commit mass murder.
Perhaps the answer is too obvious for them: he wanted to kill as many people as possible. Beyond that lies the social culture of mass-murder, to which certain types of long-gun belong.
19th century Europe and America were constructed along the lines of committing mass-murder. The primary purposes of roads and railways were the movement of armies and their equipment. Likewise, the primary purpose of the Industrial Revolution, that swept the world, was the production of armaments. The big names of the Industrial Revolution reads like a who's who of purveyors of mass murder. Even the namesake of the so-called "Nobel Peace Prize", Alfred Nobel (1833-1896), was a war-monger responsible for many modern explosives and weapons. You can thank him for increasing the range of big guns from 100 to 1000 yards in the 19th century.
Those that study mass murder most often examine the most salient facts with the least comprehension. Despite the bristling mountains of armaments amassed preceding each major conflict, they tend to nit-pick as to "causes" that appear to have set things off. Such questions are disingenuous when the means are everywhere, ready to go.
