If we take away the chance an infamy, we take away the incentive.  The maniac who killed 27 people in Newtown, Connecticut is just the latest in the long line of pschos looking for infamous imortality through sheer horror.  If we take immortality away, maybe they will stop.

Stop making the maniacs who carry out shooting sprees famous

      because we will hear about them every day for 6 months, then it will stop then we hear about them for 6 more months on the day of the trial, anniversary etc... it just makes them famous, and gives guns a bad name, they are a tool nothing more. its just how its used and it has all been blown out of proportion for way too long

      the media turning maniacs into celebrities is downright wrong. We should idolize the heroes who saved lives, or gave up their own. I would say that all of the media attention is definitely an incentive to conduct a mass shooting. Keeping the murderer's name private would also be a blessing to the family.

      We need responsible media to stop making these sickos infamous! Ignore them. Publish stories about the victims and families.
