Yes, publishing the names of shooters inspires copycat murders because too many people want to gain some kind of fame, no matter how they are able to do so. If the names of shooters were hidden, no one would kill to gain attention. Only the victims should be discussed on the news.
Yes, I believe that publishing the names of shooters inspires copycat murders. Individuals may be inspired to commit similar, or "copycat," murders if they know their names will be published. The fame and attention that the shooter may receive could be a reason to commit the act in the first place.
Yes, we have been hearing much information about all kinds of crimes all around the world and that is just too much. No normal person is interested in the names nor details of those crimes. We are fed up with murders, suicides, terrorist attacks, mass killing and similar things where killing people is involved. We just want to scream out loud: ''No more grim talk!''
The act of publishing the names of shooters doesn't inspire copycat murders. It's not the person's identity that inspires others, but rather the act. Even if the name, photo, etc of the shooter was never released, there would still be a risk of copycats because it is the shooting that inspires them.
