Everyone seems to forget that all the Texas laws are made right here in the Big Blue Heart of Red State Texas.

Don't even get me started on the idiocy of a FEDERAL ban on it's employees carrying personal arms.

What should have happened in this instance is this idiot walking into the room, ordering everyone out and gun point, and getting ventilated by 3-4 armed employees...

Cuts down on recidivism and court costs as well.

Furthermore...we also need to know what his childhood issues are, and if he has been under the care of a psychiatrist, what is his marital status, is his mortgage payment late...

Make sure to line up his parents, siblings, any other distant relatives, college roommates, professors, previous coworkers. I am sure we can get to the “bottom” of this in 30 minutes.

Modern age is amazing, and scary. We want everything tidy within a 2 hour movie format.

From the press conf-

-an employee of NASA is a witness to seeing the man with a gun- 2-3 shots were “heard”.
-No one knows if all NASA employees of #44 are accounted for..no one knows if anyone is injured.
- No one knows if the gunman is dead or alive, they are still attempting to set up communication with him...

Sounds like there might not be a gunman at all. It's all in your heads, go home, nothing more to see here. Move along folks.

Do you have a link for that photo? Is that the Perp?

If not, that probably should not be posted.

Media asking HPD spksprsn why bomb squad is there - he said he can’t answer that because it’s tactical.

That’s all for now.

Is the president always notified if there’s an “incident” on federal property?

I don’t understand why he was notified?

KPRC 2 says they can confirm identity of Perp.

They think officer did know, but just doesn’t want to broadcast the Perp’s name yet.

You are correct, NASA-JSC rents the property for $1.00 per year from Rice University. If NASA JSC leaves, everything built on the property belongs to Rice.

Sounds like Geraldo has this case solved already
Doesn’t think the shooter will be asking for a million dollar ransom

Why am I watching the news?

"Sucks to think that Texas actually has some pretty restrictive CCW laws compared to Vermont, Alaska, and even South Dakota."

Yea, but even though it's 'do this, do this, do this, do this', it's not reprehensibly bad, according to relatives; and Texas is very generous with its reciprocity.

One thing I learned out of that movie, if a guy comes into your fast food place with a duffle bag and wants breakfast at 11:00 am, you better give it to him.

I’m thinking he might be dead, too. They have made many different attempts to communicate with him and have failed.
