Federal investigators on Thursday combed through the home of the 23-year-old they say was behind this month’s deadly Texas bombing spree, seeking clues about what motivated his attacks the day after he killed himself in a confrontation with police.

Most of the culprits of the worst mass shootings since the massacre at Columbine High School in 1999 have been white males. From Timothy McVeigh who detonated explosives outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to the Unabomber. 

Why are white men more likely to carry out mass shootings? Marty Griffin asks.  What are they reaching for? What are they missing in their lives? KDKA Radio's Marty Griffin asks his listeners for their thoughts.
