Does this theory of yours also explain the behavior of the boy who
stopped the shooter? If your all encompassing theory explains both the
male shooter and the male hero who, after taking a bullet to the chest,
turned to disarm the shooter, what do you suppose differentiates the
former male from the latter?

And does your theory really rest on the requirement that all the school
shootings are perpetrated by males? If so, the case of Jillian Robbins
immediately discounts the entire theory.
