Americans of Reddit- There has been 606 mass shootings in America this year, what can be done to address the rising epidemic of mass shootings?

Gun control could be a start but the problem runs so much deeper. We have an astronomically high amount of single parent homes which produces kids who (often, not always) are angry, misunderstood, unseen and desperate for a sense of identity and belonging. Plunk those kids in a culture that worships violence and self glorification- the music, the movies, social media - and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. There are many reasons people kill other people- whether motivated by hatred for others, hatred of self, depression, desperation, demonic activity… but I believe much could be solved if we lived in a culture that valued the nuclear family. I’m sure there’s much more to be considered and people are free to disagree, but that’s just my hot take.
