Media is just trying to trash Buddhists in an attempt to show that “they all do it” to give cover to Muslims being such hotheads and animals.
Exactly......Don't fall for it, people!

#6: Agree that the media, esp. the Wash. Post, are trying to blame Buddhism for one crazy man’s actions in an attempt to cover up his mental problems.
Why tell the truth when you can make up a “new truth”?
The key issue is not his “faith” which had nothing to do with this anyway, but the breakdown in acting on warnings that he was having severe mental problems (re having a gun, CCPermit, hallucinations, a security clearance, and just behaving very strangely).
Years ago the ACLU won a major court decision which forced states to release mental patients who had been incarcerated for care without giving there consent.
Now those patients are writers for the mainstream media.
“Dr. McCoy, we have a problem”.
Exactly! I, for one, am not going to play their game. A black American who experimented with Buddhism probably experimented with Islam too. I don't think a black or white American is representative of Buddism.
Another thing, black Americans are not the stereotypical American "mass murderer". We had the DC snipers but they were driven by a religious ideology AKA Islam.
Another non-white mass murderer in my lifetime was the Asian liberal who did the shooting at the college. His rant was all liberal agenda stuff.
I'm tilting toward this black guy having a mental illness rather than terrorism and there are already laws on the book against him having a gun. Somebody dropped the ball twice on this guy.
It's not the first time the ball has been dropped under the Obama administration. Nearly all the mass murders were unnecessary as their own restrictions should have prevented them from happening. Makes me wonder if somebody high up in the US government is turning a blind eye with the objective to turn American opinion against guns.
Clinton once said he would be willing to accept a certain number of murders if it would help with his anti-gun agenda.
This man's race does not fit the stereotype of a mass murderer. Personally I think race has no part in it but it's just odd that this happens to be the time for it to be the first one.
The US government is turning a blind eye like they did with fast and furious, the Mexican borders and who knows how many of these recent shooting under Obama.
