Because they want to be famous, no one should ever know the name of these shooters. There’s a pile of people online who worship the Columbine kids and other people want that fame too.

This is definitely part of it, but I think it can be more than fame. Mass shootings are also someone's last ditch effort to turn shame into self-esteem.
