Exactly. They never go to shoot up a police station or a gun club.

Wasn't it a black man that eventually let him out? He thought God was black

I have to disagree. It received a reasonable amount of media coverage. What we did not get is coverage on the shooter. A few media outlets mentioned his name, without any picture. In fact, I don't recall seeing any footage of the shooter. I don't know if that is because media now has the policy to not provide any attention/details on the shooter, or, if in this specific case, the shooter's race had anything to do with it (i.e he was black). Who knows?

This massacre is a fine example why every citizen should had the ability to carry a firearm.
:facepalm:

Opposes pride parade because it's not family friendly,... but supports people carrying a gun on the office/streets :facepalm:

I doubt my kids need to see naked men walking with other naked men on leashes on Toronto streets . That is why my kids will never go to the parade while underage .

People are already carrying guns . They are called criminals . I have no issue with law abiding people carrying guns to protect themselves .

Can you imagine, that would be the joke of the day, a crazy gunman targeting a gun-free zone to do his thing and killing everybody there, then ironically the guys that have to go there and stop him would be gun-toting cops LOL

Yeah typical response from you. So the shooter was not identified because he was black right. I saw the report later on and they ID the shooter. But hey who knows right.

Wtf is wrong with people. The shooter was named "Dewayne". If that didn't give away his ethnicity I don't know what did.

I was wondering why they weren't hammering away and then the pieces fell into place. Minority plus a handgun and it went by the wayside. I think each case has it's own merits and to say broadly say all mass shootings are the same is intellectually dishonest.

However whoever said if steer clear of crime and gangs/drug areas, the odds are heavily in your favor. The crime hot spots spoil the overall statistics so it's not an accurate portrayal.

What will stop this? Probably nothing as guns and violence are so ingrained into their society.
I'm sure there are some forums that have topics devoted to nothing but mass murders in the US.
I saw the headlines too but never bothered to read any further. What's the point, we've seen it all before too many times.
What a sad country the US has become.
The Americans are at it again? Like it doesn’t happen here? Funnily enough the first thought that came to me was the dandorth Greek then shooting and as I type this the youngenvan attack also comes bubbling up. This world is getting scarier by the day.

I have a tub of Haagen Diaz in my fridge that I’ve been contemplating on eating. Man I might not make it til tomorrow or the weekend I might as well enjoy it while I can.

Stressed out over a couple of shootings close to home? It's a good thing you weren't alive 75 years ago.
