May God have mercy on all the victims.

Let me hazard a guess: the shooter is a former employee who is angry because management didn't realize what a special and unique flower he is, and so he murdering the non-useless people who dared to make him feel bad about his little self.

What the hell.

What ever happened to telling the supervisor to go f themselves, slamming the door and storming out.

Why do we have to bring guns into this stuff.

Yes, prayers.
Depending on the agenda of the media, I suppose we will hear about the shooter for a number of news cycles, or not.

KENNESAW, Ga. — A shooting was reported at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw at around 5:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce said the male suspect, who has not been identified, arrived at the facility at 1675 Airport Road and started shooting at people. The suspect ran after the shooting and has not yet been caught.

More than 50 emergency vehicles descended upon the scene.

There were multiple victims, all of whom were taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital; their names and conditions were not immediately released.

According to CNN, six people were shot. One of the victims is in surgery.

11Alive’s Paul Crawley reported from the scene that FedEx employees were being turned away as they tried to arrive at work. Those who were already at work were held in a warehouse on the property. The facility is on lockdown.

I hope they get the shooter ASAP, and that everyone recovers from their wounds.

Unsurprisingly enough Fedex is an employer who does not allow employees to be armed, and has been militant in opposing bills allowing employees to have firearms in their cars on company property.

How's that working out for Fedex management?

I had to go to the Dallas FedEx warehouse once. I arrived during a shift change and literally every single employee that went in was wearing a SEIU shirt.

Aren’t Kennesaw, GA residents “required” to own guns? I’ll be curious as to whether the shooter is a Kennesaw resident...and whether FedEx allows or disallows employees to carry while working.

If the injured employees had any sense, they’d sue FedEx for infringing on their constitutional rights. But I see in a later post that they’re SEIU.

I expect the MSM whom cares so deeply about the murders daily in Chicago and frequently asks the President about the carnage by criminals (/s), to ask Obama about today’s incident.

Because this is an airport location; it is clear it is a FEDEX Express location... FEDEX Express is NON- union. And so are the Ground and Home Delivery division.

Problem will be worse because last week, Gov, Nathan Deal signed a bill that the BHO-voters in this state called the “guns everywhere” bill.
Now every criminal incident involving a firearm will be dumped in Deals lap, with a push toward punishing the law abiding.
Its always “punish the law abiding” when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.

Columbia law Review Article about Fedex and guns at work. Quote from the article:

Employers like FedEx and Volkswagen have fought the laws, arguing that, as employers, they have the right to maintain a safe and gun-free workplace.

Really safe for the demented killers, but for the regular employees, not so much.

Profound statement. I fully came to understand exactly that, this morning when I read the ugly tweets coming from liberals regarding the devastation from tornadoes in the Southern States.

Of course the “law-abiding” criminals always register their guns and obey all gun laws and the non-criminals are the real criminals. (in the upside down world of the anti-second amendment)
