The news has reports of "activists" who claim that the shooter "had to" kill the six people in Nashville because...reality did not conform with her desires.
Because she "had to" kill them, and because she had no other options, she is blameless.
The flaw with this kind of thinking should be obvious. What if everybody held that moral viewpoint? Then it would be open-season, no bag-limit on everybody who made somebody uncomfortable.
Is that really what the not-norms want? Really? Did they think that through?
Weed and paranoia
One of my buddies from high school who I had lunch with Saturday, used to smoke a lot of weed.
He dried out. No drinking. No weed. No pills.
I asked him about the weed and he told me "It made me paranoid. REALLY paranoid. I could not function."
Noodling around the internet, paranoia is a documented side-effect of THC, one of the active ingredients of weed. It is also a side-effect of "bath salts", the synthetic cannabinoids found in "K-6", "Spice" and other JWH concoctions.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that the THC concentration in street weed has risen from 4% in 1995 to the 12% range in 2014 to +20% THC today.
Furthermore, weed has been decriminalized in many jurisdictions, even in states where it is still, nominally illegal. Prosecuting for simple MJ possession is seen as "racist".

More weed being smoked (10X?). Stronger weed (5X). Weed associated with paranoia. People going crazy and shooting up the place. Hmmm! Makes you wonder, doesn't it.
Paranoid Personality Disorder is considered a "delusional" disorder. The person with the disorder maintains strong beliefs (i.e. strong enough to act on) even when all evidence points to the contrary. Sometimes paranoia is warranted. That is, there IS evidence that you are a target. That is not PPD.
If mainstream media reports if traffic fatalities were not wearing seat-belts, if they report when alcohol was a factor, wouldn't it make sense to report if THC was found in the system of a mass-shooter?
Don't expect it to happen. The government sees legalizing weed as a great way to exercise their insider trading privileges. They also see it as a great way to generate more revenue through taxation. The machine wants legalized weed and they will not do anything that might throw some speed-bumps in the way of that goal.
