What is the Daily Kos or DU avatar of the shooter?
Another multiple shooting brought to you by insane gun-free zones where only victims are disarmed.
We'll find out after we get to hear the stories of their life-long dealings with mental health problems.
Another gun-free-zone failure....
Update at 5:08 p.m.: The Associated Press is reporting one of the victims has died at Harborview Medical Center.
The lockdown at SPU has ended.
An ASSAULT handgun at that, capable of firing 2,000 rounds per second.
At Seattle Pacific University, we seek to ground everything we do on the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ. Such a claim is both personal, a commitment by each member of our community, and institutional, a corporate aspiration that has guided this institution from its founding.
Even while we celebrate the rich diversity of the Church throughout the world, we anchor our faith on the person of Jesus Christ, the authority of Holy Scripture, and the tradition of the Christian Church throughout history.
Oh Lawdy not a full auto assault pistol.
Countdown to ban all gusn.
If only they had some sort of sign or policy not allowing guns on campus, this would have never happened. /s
Count down to ban all guns.
This is weird but we just got back from the gun range about 5:00PM. Nobody got shot or killed.
My son goes there and is okay, but in shock (freshman).
Final papers due tomorrow and finals next week - good luck with that now. So sad that one of the victims has died, hopefully the other critical person can make it through. Prayers up for them. TV said it was a shotgun, but there will be a press conference shortly with more details.
My son goes there and called to let me know he was okay. I was at the police station renewing my concealed carry permit!
As I noted above, it is billed as a Christian school. Any feedback on the actual school culture?
Another multiple shooting in a liberal city and liberal state.
Notice how these liberal mecca’s are now becoming the hot killing zones for the whacked out crazed murderous lunatics among them.
Are they still saying two shooters? Seems odd.
