Some deranged nutbar can walk into a military base/installation or school and randomly and brutally murder dozens at will...

But shoot at a government court house and your dead within moments.

Interesting.

Oh boy! An 'assault type rifle'! Had to stick that in there. For all we know, it was an old Nylon 66 22lr.

What crap.

Had one of those as a teenager in the '60s. Great rifle!

They can’t...therefore, this is not news.

They made sure to mention what kind of gun he had, but no word on what type of gun(s) he was shot with.

Sigh.

If you are going to go hunting courthouses, be sure to bring enough gun. I'd say 25mm would be about the minimum effective caliber. But 75mm would give consistant 1-shot kills.

Not based on personal experience. Just sayin'.
