Active shooter, people hurt, people killed. —as usual.

Obviously the fault of law abiding gun owners in their own homes doing nothing wrong, thus confiscate “all those guns” because “somebody has to do something.”/s

There is a law on the books (and in the Holy Bible) against murder. Why would the maniacal losers who shoot multiple people obey a NEW law against guns ?

Because the goal is not to disarm the badguys. The goal is to disarm law abiding patriots who would defend freedom

Yup...and Antifa will get more violent, and “clever”.. blame things on the proud boys or Trump. It’s really sad our country has come to this. If “news anchors” and celebrities openly call for the economy to fail, do you really think they aren’t cheering this sort of thing in their heart, while pompously spouting false outrage? “Every time a gun kills a liberal gets his thrills”

he’s dead, Jim.

The suspect that was shooting at the Cinergy Theatre was shot by the cops. Good.

I hope this ends right with the police killing the shooter, not taking him into custody


Why ?

Agreed. Maybe we could get an “accelerated justice for murders” law. Everything could be sped up. Trial starts in two weeks. Not enough time? Tough. Take the default judgment. Limit appeals to one go. Entire process must be done in six months, period.

Dragging this out where the shooter spends years on death row while appeal after appeal is heard is ridiculous. Thousands and thousands of dollars wasted on prison room and board.

This sounds suspiciously like an amateur “Day Of Rage” shooting, which has been long feared by counter terrorism experts.

Because that’s better for everybody. Keep police officers safe. Justice is meted out right there. He doesn’t get a chance to stand in court and give his excuses, And other idiots get an object lesson.

“A Mail Van?”

He wanted to be in a gun free zone.

That’s because it’s normal and places like that. In the nice parts of America it’s fairly unusual.

“Where are armed citizens to defend themselves?”

Texas has come a long way since the Texas Tower shooter.

I know I don’t get out enough, but why do I never get an active shooter loose in my area?

Tyrants are cranking up their false flags. When out and about, be as aware as possible of your surroundings. Anticipate where the threat may come from and have a plan of action.
