It's part mental illness, partly environment. Basically people are more isolated now than ever before so they have less people to regulate their own behavior and so they become more extreme untill something happens. You are a product of your environment.

I don't have enough expertise to judge why the USA has such a high murder rate, i assume it's a bunch of factors. I'm sure environment plays a role, and ease of acquiring weapons that make killing relatively easy is also likely a part of it.
