I'm very suspicious about all these shootings taking place. I wouldn't put it past this administration to be using some sort of mind control on the population to get people turned against guns.

There actually is a form of mind control that in my opinion is being used to cause stupid people to commit mass murder with a so-called assault weapon: it's called advertising.

The liberal press does not just report these stories of mass murder; they advertise them, very heavily. And the concept of copycat crimes is well known.
