Just like the title asks.  I had a friend ask me this. I didn't have much insight.
    My answer was that I don't they can be stopped. Simple fact is bad people are going to do bad things.

Change the morality of the culture. But it’s too late for that now.

We have abandoned God and any sense of eternity, along with the possibility of eternal punishment. To postmodern society, it doesn't matter what you do because we are just stardust randomly bouncing off each other in a chaotic universe with no ultimate meaning or consequences in life, and to the extent we acknowledge morality it's subjectively up to everyone to decide what is best for themselves. God promised that if we humble ourselves and pray and seek His face and repent, he would heal our land, but I just don’t see that happening because we’ve rejected Him and decided that society is better with hedonism, nihilism, and science-worship.

Decades of cultural subversion have eaten away at our society like cancer.  Even if you could reverse all that you'd still have the alphabet boys staging shootings to push for their fucking gun control.

About all you can do is encourage everyone to be armed to make the arrival time of the second gun as short as possible.

Yeah, I was going to say we need a more-or-less homogenous culture. Mass shootings are a symptom of cultural decadence and also a sign of the times, as I believe our addiction to technology plays a large part in why the way we think and relate to the world around us has changed so drastically and regressed.

The system is designed to take young boys and break them. Turning the majority of them into weak, depressed, broken, emotional reactive women with penises. Who occasionally shoot up the place in a fit of rage. Which plays fantastically into media and politicians screaming for more laws.

To change that would require a fundamental realignment of our value system as a nation. While putting pharmaceutical companies, single mothers, government drones, “edukators”, and other leeches in their place. Also breaking the back of public schools and allowing school choice.

There would be a civil war before that EVER comes close to happening.

Because the system is doing exactly what it is designed to do.

Comprehensive background checks. Virtually all of these shooters have a history of domestic violence. But often they weren't arrested. And if they were, the prosecutor offers a plea to a lesser charge that's not prohibited.

And on the plus side when background checks are ironclad, there is no reason to restrict what's for sale.

The real kicker is that, considering the amount of guns in private hands in this country, along with all the ammo, and the homebuilt firearms avenue that has flourished in incalculable ways the last 10 years, the potential energy for violence is FUCKING MASSIVE. All things considered one would think these events would happen multiple times every day (lone wolf active shooters that is). But they dont.

But yes, the question remains: why does our culture produce so many mass killers? If it isnt guns it will be something else.

Introduce a ban on people being closer than 50 yards from one another outdoors and 25 yards indoors.   Yeah...that should do it.



How about we start by addressing background checks where juvenile records are included?  Seems to me a lot of the perps had a storied history of run ins with the law and other issues.  Perhaps include some elements from that.

Bring bank mental institutions and increase funding for mental health issues.   Also, streamline the process for admitting a person, as well as treating them.  You'd have to address the due process portion of things as well so that it's expedited, but you would also have to addresses issues where so called Red Flags are in fact bogus, so that those fake Red Flag reporters are held just as liable.  Not sure how to do all that.

Stop the round the clock reporting on them, and/or change what is reported.  Seems the MSM likes to sensationalize them and that tends to encourage copy cats.

Bring back public executions for serious, heinous crimes.  Perhaps seeing some shitbirds strung up now and then would make one rethink their poor choices.   While you're at it, lop off a hand of a thief, the penis of a rapist, and perhaps some other things along those lines and you might slow things down a bit.

I'm sure there's a bunch of other stuff one could do, like I don't know...shoot back maybe, or perhaps torture any mass shooting pricks if caught alive, but there is no single one best answer.

In the end, freedom can be scary, perhaps its the price we pay.  Don't really know, it's a multi-faceted problem at this point in time.

Perhaps there is some merit in a once a year Purge type event.  No rules, no holds barred, just let society have a 24 hour period once a year to take out the trash I guess.   Maybe that all would work...hypothetically speaking of course.

If you can figure out how to solve the suicide problem, you can solve a significant portion of mass shootings. People are unhappy. They want other people to be unhappy too.

Furthermore, most "mass shootings" are either A) domestic violence, or B) drug, gang, or related to another type of organized crime.

According to a peer reviewed study found here, only 9.1% of the "random" mass shooting perpetrators had a history of domestic violence, even though ~68% of mass shootings were domestic violence regardless of history. There is a clear connection, but not one that background checks alone will solve.

First off People have to go after a shooter and stop them as soon as possible.
As soon as the shooter is known stop all mention of their name from coming out
If the shooter dies at the scene, then their body is taken and buried in a unmarked grave.
If a trial is needed when convicted the shooter disappears in the penal system to never be heard from again.  When they die buried in a unmarked grave.

By eliminating  their 15 minutes in the news there would be less copy cat shootings.

Screw the background checks criminals don't care about the law.    Remember The right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed.
Most of all carry always.   I know open carry is not favored here, but the more guns visible the less attractive a location is for a shooting.

Did you intend to ask about how to PREVENT or do you mean "stop", as your question asks?

There are two ways to stop a mass shooting.

1.  Shoot the motherfucker right between the eyes!

Unfortunately, these things ALWAYS happen where the people have been disarmed.

2.  Attack the bastard.

It is after all a "mass shooting" so, there are lots of people around.  ATTACK!

People like him offer nothing.

Not because it's gun control, but because they put their faith in thescience™, the right tweaking of the policy dial.
"That can fix everything!" they cry. Just the right policy, that's all. But you look at the results and most of their prescriptions coming into contact with human nature fucking suck. They seem to be plum out of ideas these days, and settle for muh harm reduction. They fuck things up and talk about best practices, STUDIES SAY.

Almost uniformly it's fake and gay. The lib mind is a small one, with high, barbed fences. It wasn't always that way, but now, I don't know how anyone doesn't laugh at the "experts say it resulted in a 2.3% reduction in social discord" or whatever headlines. Throw money and technology at it, that will fix it

Eta: the cherry on top, or the shill line at the end "no more gun control guize!"
