azcentral.com is reporting the (dead-by suicide) shooter’s name as Jason “J.T.” Ready, “a former Marine who headed the the U.S. Border Guard, a militia-style group that routinely performed armed patrols in the southern Arizona desert”.
I was raised around guns, we always had guns in our house, of course, our Dad had drilled into us that we were not to touch or mess with any of the guns, this was in the “
Dirty Thirties”. We never took a gun out of the house, we didn’t even think of killing anyone/ I just wonder what has changed in the world that makes it so necessary to kill innocent people just to express our rage. Does not seem right to me.
From the rest of the azcentral.com story, it sounds like he killed his own family.
