It doesn’t work that way. You’re just giving them a platform to inspire other idiots who also want to see their name in lights. Want to know the real reason school shooters are more of a thing in the USA then Germany? Because in Germany the press doesn’t publish the perpetrator’s name.

Yes. This is why in Germany shootings aren't a thing. No source, no other factors considered, no need to address the different laws in place, no explaining why other European countries have low numbers of shootings... nope, it's clearly just because of publishing the shooter's name. 🙄

I never said it's not a problem in America. But holding up some random reason with no evidence isn't helpful. You might as well say Germany has less shootings because of spätzle.

I think the comment you just replied to was agreeing with you, assuming your initial comment was sarcastic (but on reddit it's hard to know).

Yea, I was being highly sarcastic but I don't think the response was. I could be wrong - like you said, on reddit it's hard to know.
