RE: I don't think this is accurate. Many shootings happen because the lunatic in question...

between stats and anecdotes false dichotomies are created

to me, the goal is to reduce mass shootings

those are almost exclusively perpetrated with relatively high power long rifles with high capacity magazines

yes, of course there's many incidents where shooting rampages are carried out with whatever was at hand ... but the high body count ones always have the aforementioned in common

logically, that's where the focus should be regarding weapon access

Reagan was shot with a pistol, Lennon was killed with one

they have something in common ... one pistol, one victim

so there's a stat worth contemplating

edit: I agree with your skepticism based on the above! [and more]
