Really...here are some of the their very specific & definitive findings

Most attackers used firearms, and firearms were most often acquired from the home
Half of the attackers had interests in violent topics
Nearly every attacker experienced negative home life factors:
Most attackers were victims of bullying, which was often observed by others
Most attackers had a history of school disciplinary actions, and many had prior contact with law enforcement:
Most attackers used firearms, and firearms were most often acquired from the home

my very favoritest...
There is no profile of a student attacker, nor is there a profile for the type of school that has been targeted

what a waste of time, paper, the public’s attention...

Short version: most shooters have guns and motives.

That's some mighty fine sleuthin'. I feel much safer with the Secret Service on the job.
