authorities in Louisiana say they were called to the scene of a 12-year-old’s birthday party on Saturday where six people were shot following an argument......

 

.......The gunfire comes amid a particularly violent yearfor shootings across the country, with CNN tallying at least 45 mass shootings ― incidents where four or more people, excluding the gunman, are wounded or killed by gunfire ― since March 16. That’s when eight people were killed by a gunman at three Atlanta-area spas.

It certainly feels like everyone is unleashing their pent up crazy from being locked in all last year after seeing some other shootings on the news

Social distancing also isn’t ideal for people that want to kill a lot of people.

Actually, I've noticed that the rush to just assume that it's a Muslim (Or a Trumper who hates minorities.  Or a militia member.  Or whatever profile.), sems to be less prevalent compared to a few years back.  People seem to be more willing to wait for facts before targeting a group.  

 

Well, people other than the shooters.

we also had four years of a president who fed on Chaos, whose only discernible skill was getting people worked up.... this sort of thing builds in waves, and has serious inertia.   The world is an angrier place than it was 5 years ago...and it is angrier by intent and design
