Yes, it is happening more

From a Harvard research study in 2014

These are hugely newsworthy events and we cannot expect them not to be covered, but it seems a reasonable conclusion that the idea of mass shootings has “gone viral” among the violently mentally unstable.  It might not help, to keep the shooter’s identity hidden, but it sure wouldn’t hurt.  And it really might help.  A lot of these people clearly seek infamy.  And, currently, they get it.
