People often fire off hundreds of rounds every day in rural counties where people have acres of land. It's so common it couldn't usually be considered an indicator of impending violence unless there is some known history and recent tips to indicate otherwise.

If it's in an urban area, then that would obviously stand out. There are often laws against discharging a weapon in urban areas. I don't know if that applies in either county and haven't read up on the California shooter yet.

The Texas shooter had a dozen red flags that were missed, including the military failing to put his domestic violence conviction into the system used for firearms purchase background checks. He wasn't legally eligible to purchase the firearms he used in that shooting but they missed it. He'd committed enough military crimes before that to have been put away for 5-10 years at least. If you look at most of the terrorists and mass shooters in America, there is always always something in their history that was missed or wrongly deemed harmless. There aren't enough police to follow everyone around 24/7 and the politicians refuse to pay for enough prison cells to keep all the dangerous people in prison. We even have police chiefs who endless repeat liberal political mantras like "we can't arrest our way of this problem" as if that pardons their poor excuse for leadership and the complete absence of a coherent policing strategy.
