Who commits mass shootings?
CNN - 06/27/2015
Much more than race, gender appears to have a direct correlation on whether or not someone becomes a killer.
“Murder is a man’s crime,” said James Alan Fox, a criminologist at Northeastern University.
Fox, who disagrees with the criteria Mother Jones used to report on mass shootings, offered various explanations: Men are often more likely to own a gun, to be trained and comfortable around firearms. They often have poorer support systems, and are less likely than women to share their feelings.
Men are responsible for some 90% of all murders. In fact, the only two women included in the Mother Jones study were Jennifer San Marco and Cherie Lash Rhoades.
