Mass Shootings Increase Need for Hearses

new jerseyWith the recent rash of mass shootings increasing the need for hearses across the United States, one cannot help but wonder if there is a pattern. Many columnists and bloggers are saying the economy is a common denominator in all of these incidents.

In Binghamton, New York, a 41-year-old man busted into the American Civic Association last week and killed 13 people before turning the gun on himself. In Pittsburgh, a man shot and wounded three police officers who were responding to a domestic disturbance call at the man’s house. The list of incidents could go on, but suffice it to say that 44 people have been killed in five separate incidents across the nation in the last month and researchers say the economic downturn could be the motivating factor.

In the case of the Binghamton shooter, the man had recently lost his job and he was angry about it. In Pittsburgh, friends of the shooter said he was upset about recently getting fired. Other perpetrators of mass shootings in the past few months were also recently unemployed and frustrated about their situations.

Whether there is a pattern in these shootings or not, we will be seeing a larger number of funeral cars in areas where they take place. If there are not any for the shooter, there will be some for the ones that the shooter kills.
