The Left always blames the NRA after these incidents. Strangely, history’s assassins and mass murderers are usually Leftists and not NRA members. Go figure.

So he knew to go to a “gun free zone” to commit his carnage.

Endless hours of reporting give plenty of “research” material. Personally I think these stories shouldn’t get more than a passing mention in national news when they’re really just local stories.

‘He wasn’t a student at the school, and investigators are trying to determine why he targeted Seattle Pacific, a private Christian college, some 12 miles from his home.’

It was a Christian school and it was a gun-free zone.

‘He was involuntary committed for evaluation after he said he “had a rage inside him” and “has had previous suicidal thoughts,” the report says.’

Muzzie? Leftist?

Heard earlier on the radio news that he bought the shotgun legally years before his mental issues

LOL! I thought it looked like a circa 1970s catcher’s chest protector.

Looks like vitamin D deficiency and resulting insomnia.

Was he prescribed ambien?

That's where the line becomes really difficult, you don't want people losing their guns and rights because at some point they were depressed. But someone who was 5150'd twice because he said he wanted to hurt himself and others?

That is a suicide smock that they wear in prisons. Must be wanting to check out of life.

So he had a shotgun. Now, what did he USE in the massacre?

He shouldn't have had access to any firearm.

But if he used a gun or rifle, well that would be ILLEGAL!

Thank goodness that insane people cannot access firearms.

Oh, wait...

The laws against killing people MUST have stopped him!

Oh, wait...

Maybe if there was some law against owning a firearm, that would have prevented this tragedy.

Oh, wait...
