The 26/27 fatherless figure is factually wrong, even the originator of that statistic walked it back. Always leave it to Republicans to take a multi-factor cause and reduce it down to a single factor, based on wrong numbers but more importantly having inconclusive data.

As for recent mass-shooters, the set of individuals is so small that any purely statistical analysis is going to be meaningless. What can be meaningful is to look at the increase in male lives that feel like they're at a dead-end and are willing to burn the world down. You don't see that in a healthy society.
Anyhow, did anyone post this revealing little tell-all by his ex-"girlfriend"? (quotes due to unsurprising polyamory)
At first I wasn't sure of authenticity, but that article has now been highlighted by some mainstream news outlets. Anyhow, look at the kinds of lives young people think are acceptable now:
He was a perfect gentleman throughout our relationship. He never pushed me to do things I didn’t want to do. His biggest concern was that I was comfortable. Polyamory is confusing for everyone involved, but luckily he and my fiance at the time were both understanding and consenting.
What a joke.
