Taboo Club is probably not the place where Iowa farm boys hangout. I'll leave out the rest of my comment.

Cedar Rapids is a sizeable city, it's not a farm town. So let's leave the Iowa stereotypes out.

I'm wondering if it was some angry middle aged white women responsible? Or maybe it was....

The comment from the police, that there is no lingering danger is pure fallacy. Every day, in what ever town or city, there will be a mass shooting, this now normal life in the grand ol' US of A.

The US experienced the highest murder rates in 1933 (9.7 per 100,000 population) and 1980 (10.4 per 100,000). The 2021 murder rate was 6.9 per 100,000 population. The US has experienced worse crime rates in the past. I think people forget that fact.

Up until a few years ago, the US was safer than it's ever been, so what you're saying does make sense. That said, I wonder if mass shootings are included in the 'murder rate' or calculated differently. Have you given the accurate comparison with those numbers?

It makes no statistical difference whether the victims died singly or in a mass shooting. The measure is not the number of events, but the number of individual victims per 100,000 population.
