It’s customary to notify next of kin before releasing the name to news organizations ... the police probably have to call someplace in Egypt or Saudi Arabia and the calls aren’t getting answered ....

Arabic and Muslim names are notoriously difficult to spell and pronounce. They are are probably learning how to do it right as to offend anyone..

Lebanese, I am sure it had nothign to do with religion...

The liberals will say that maybe he was just "gunning" for a "Section 8"

It is "pride month" you know...

I’m puzzled that the Los Angeles Police are handling this instead of the Santa Monica Police, or so it seems.

Santa Monica Municipal Code:

3.24.010 Firearms—Permit.
No person shall shoot or discharge within the City any gun, pistol or other firearm, or any air-gun or pistol, or spring-gun or pistol without having first obtained a written permit from the Chief of Police. (Prior code § 3500)

Did the shooter have a permit? /s

Great post...all other mass shootings by dings in other states are promptly stopped by citizens with guns before they can do any harm... Like Ft. Hood for instance...

You're on the case Tex!

... A man dressed in all black and carrying an AR-15 semi-automatic weapon left the home where neighbors said a Lebanese family lived, shot a woman in a black Infinity, and got into the passenger side of a purple Mazda and ordered the driver to head in the direction of the Santa Monica College campus.

The gunman, who witnesses said was dressed in “swat gear,” including a ballistic vest, and was carrying multiple rounds of ammunition, then got out of the car and began firing at passing vehicles, including a city bus and a police car...

Ft. Hood was a gun free zone, so your point is worthless. And would fit better on DU or DKos.

Is this information confirmed somewhere? There is so much of this anymore. I wondered if the shooter had shouted Allah Al Akbar or whatever they shout. One cannot help but go there anymore.

While most Lebanese are Muslim, some are Christian. If shooter were the latter, I suspect we would know it by now.

Someone on twitter who lives in the area told me that the gunman put a “political message” with graffiti on his house after he set it on fire, will be interesting to see what he wrote

When I was single I had a roommate who was Lebanese-American; as white as your average Euro-American, and Catholic. There used to be a lot of Lebanese Christians of all denominations.

Fort Hood might as well be another state. It's a military base, which means it has its own rules and regulations outside the jurisdiction of Texas gun laws.

Had Hasan gone on his jihad rampage outside the base, you can rest assured that some Texan would have shot him dead before he'd done much damage.

NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN it’s an “assault-style” rifle when the eye-witness I heard interviewed said it was a pistol.

Predictably, now we have the latest horrific incident which will unquestionably be fed into the array of on-the-table gun-confiscation schemes. 0bama rejoicing in the distraction away from his scandals as we speak. Oh, it’s gonna be a great weekend on the golf course.

You make my point. The Luby’s was also a “gun free zone”: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/14/famous-luby-massacre-survivor-to-senate-im-not-a-victim-of-guns-but-of-lawmakers-who-legislated-me-out-of-the-right-to-protect-myself-and-my-family/ So what exactly is your pathetic point?

Checked your posting history: You’re pretty solid. So maybe I am missing your point. Let me make mine:

Gun free zones = killing zones. Even in Texas. States with ridiculous gun “control” laws are gun free zones writ large.

OK, your turn.
