My prayers go out to the people involved and their families.

Unfortunately, the anti-gun folks have more to bolster their cause every time something like this happens.

It’s not lack of gun control that’s the problem, it’s the lack of morality.

Our local radio just reported that one is dead and the shooter shot himself.

Actually, impressed they identified the shooter death seperate from the victim. Lately it seems as if they lump them all together.

This story could have had a happy ending, if the shooter had just shot himself FIRST.

Man, I LOVED the 50’s. I lived in the country and I loved it. People were calmer, life, in general, was calmer. It wasn’t perfect but close to it as you can get on earth.

I have always been aware of the fact that during election cycles, the number of reported acts of gun violence goes up.
Remember the AWB was instigated by number of similar incidents. McDonalds, Luby's, Columbine, even the one in England contributed to the hysteria.
What the anti-gunners expected, and did not get after VT, and now UIC, was a backlash against 'gun free zones' instead of attempts for more control over guns.
Gun-control is a loser for the Democrats, and Hill and the big O know it. They both have to answer to gunowners for their stances.
That is a huge silent majority that has yet to speak in this campaign.

Another murder suicide. I hate to say it, but the odds are good that they will discover the shooter has been taking antidepressants and stopped.

God bless the families and victims.

It hasn’t been America for the last 5 years but people were a lot happier when they could spend on credit. The party is over and people are pissed off. I unfortunately expect to see a lot more of this kind of thing.

I know, why don’t we post signs at all public places that say “No shooting here”?

It should work because a person will read the sign and choose not to commit the crime, just as the drug pushers do at the school yard when they see the “Drug Free Zone” sign.

Liberalism/Socialism/Communism/Nazism works, we just gotta try harder and have the right people in charge.

Just a question, but re: what anti-gunners expected, did they really expect and not get backlash over gun-free zones? That’s how it reads.

Investigators said an off-duty Palm Springs female police officer was in the restaurant at the time of the shooting.

Was she armed and did she make any difference?

What the anti-gunners expected was a backlash against guns and gun-owners. They didn't expect the outcry from some students on being able to legally exercise their CCW permits and carry on campus.

I haven't seen any details yet on the Wendy's shooting, but look for the same BS coming from the Brady Campaign or the VPC.

Domestic dispute?

Unfortunately, it usually turns out to be that way. There aren't a lot of details, but it sounds like the shooter killed someone he knew, then killed himself. Why, oh why can't these goobers just kill themselves and end their pain, rather than take others out with them? Too often, they want to make sure someone else suffers along with them, usually the person they blame for their suffering.

Too bad it had to happen at one of Dave Thomas' restaurants.

He was a great American businessman and one of the most likable persons you could ever meet.

He was an orphan who pulled himself up by his own bootstraps and if he had ever run for office, he would have had my vote.

You are not alone,as the third world take over continues both south, west and north, others who want to leave can't get out because home prices down here have collapsed.

And..they continue to build in Dade County which exaccerbatres the situation.

Last night every car on my block was broken into and we live in a relatively safe neighborhood. It's not safe anywhere down here.
