"Happy" (BEING sarcastic) these mass shooters/idiots/LOSERS are using firearms, it would have been so much worse if they would have put the $1000 in (IEDs) explosives. Like Afghanistan. Boston, Iraq, Paris, etc, the Boston bombers spent less than $100 into their devices. How much more carnage, death & injury could they have created if they would have placed ten or twelve "backpacks"  ($30 each) around these events. Although backpacks would set off alarms, what if the bombs were disguised as flower pots or some other decoration?

The simple answer is this: lazy effectiveness.  Firearms have a very shallow learning curve to deal with in regards to causing chaos and destruction.  Being proficient with a firearm is not required in these situations.  Point and boom enough and you'll probably hit something eventually.  The construction of explosives requires a higher degree of skill, patience, time, and effort.  In the hands of individuals who are not proficient... explosives have a tendency to not detonate - or detonate at the wrong time.  Boston Bomber is one of the more recent examples of 'success' in carrying out an attack with explosive devices.  Columbine - bombs either didn't detonate or were ineffective.  Antifa member(s) put bombs outside of Portland PD after the whole Landeros school situation.  The bombs didn't detonate.  You'll find a lot more examples of bombs being found at planned mass shooting events that just never went off, or did to no effect, than you will find successful implementation of explosive devices.  

 

Just an addition:  In a Civil War scenario I would fully expect IED's to become a major problem.  The people with the skills to make and effectively use these items aren't interested in terrorizing education facilities, shopping centers, and night clubs.

So true. Bombs wouldn't fit the narrative. It's interesting to me when something non gun related happens, the person is guilty

 When it is gun related, the gun is guilty. I find it appealing that otherwise well meaning people think the answer to violence is to make everyone unarmed. ?
