Critical pieces of the puzzle...
One-third of the attackers who terrorized schools, houses of worship or businesses nationwide last year had a history of serious domestic violence, two-thirds had mental health issues, and nearly all had made threatening or concerning communications that worried others before they struck.
Most attackers were male, ranging in age from 15 to 64. The domestic violence history often included serious violence. While 67% had mental health issues, only 44% had a diagnosis or known treatment for the issue.
As for motive, more than half of the attackers had a grievance against a spouse or family member, or a personal or workplace dispute. Also, 22% had no known motive. In nearly half the cases, the attacker apparently selected the target in advance.

They are ALWAYS light-years ahead of us in data-analysis and threat-assessment. That's their job, and the only way they can't protect the "assets" they are tasked to protect is to know the threats to those "assets".

Fortunately there IS a lot of information available to people who are concerned about securing and protecting vulnerable people and places. I have been collecting information about church security for several months, and have been feeding that information to the Deacons in my church, both of whom are Veterans. So far, I am the only person who is armed every time I am in church, but that is going to change in the near future once the Deacons get their CCW licenses.
