    That is a disgusting comment. Those I know, and BTW, and I know many in both the Jewish and Islamic Communities in Houston, are pretty torn up over this. But don't let what I am telling you blind your hatred.

    And, by the way, I know you probably think you know exactly how you'd react in this situation, but you don't. Oftentimes, people don't have enough time to think about such noble topics as "will I let my fellow citizens die." It's fight or flight, that's it.
    All these people got shot for no reason.

    That doesn't indicate how long he planned this. Purchasing guns isn't a criminal act, nor does it prove intent to committ a criminal act.

    Your answers aren't working either. "SHOOT HIM!" would get a lot of people killed and the death toll might have been much higher had people without gas masks and bulletproof vests been shooting at the other guy.

    Neither side works when they use their argument as the answer to every single scenario and it's frankly embarrassing to watch both sides of the issue act like they have the foolproof answer to situations like this. Without fail, people come out after these events and say, "it must be the gun laws" without the slightest ****ing clue on the details of the situation. Without fail, people come out after these events and say, "it must be the fact that nobody shot this dude" without the slightest ****ing clue on the details of the situation.

    How about both sides just shut the **** up?

    Not for everybody. Maybe almost everybody thought only of themselves, but you wait--you will be hearing about a few who tried to help others.

    Which has absolutely nothing to do with what I said. Surprise. Why do I even bother responding to your posts?

    It's nice to sit outside looking in and say "I'd be that hero. I'd have protected them" but, until you are in the situation, it's a simple hypothetical and your brain could react completely differently.
