Have mass shootings ever affected how you live or think?

I have never once been afraid, while in a shopping mall, school or movie theater, that someone might come in with a gun and starting shooting people up. It registers as low as airplane-crash likelihood while flying. I do have plenty of fears or worries - some which people might consider paranoid - but becoming the victim of an El Paso or Dayton has never been one of them.

Do any Dopers here get worried when doing everyday tasks like shopping at Walmart?
