    Re: Lone Star College Shooting Leaves 3 Injured, 'Person of Interest' in Custody

    Guns are not allowed on college campus in Texas, according to the news story I read.


    Very little is known at this time; almost nothing in fact. A staff member of some kind was wounded, and someone identified as a student. Allegedly another shooter escaped and has not yet been caught; it is not known if he is a student.

    Considering how the media tends to get details and even basic facts flat wrong in early reporting, I think attempting to characterize this incident, or score political points of either sort with it, would be unwise at this time. We simply don't know what really happened yet.

    Wanna bet one of these guys has a history of mental problems?

    Yup. Crimes committed with firearms by people without any criminal or mental health histories are quite low. The last rash of mass shootings have virtually all been done by those with mental illness.

    What is disturbing about this is that several of the GOP who are calling for mental health safeguards for firearms were the same GOP who voted mental health safeguards for firearms down before.

    Maybe.

    Frankly, I've seen most disputes start between people that are otherwise just fine mentally. If I had to guess I'd say that it is more likely that one or both had a history of violence.

    Your'e deeply confused. You must be refering to Obama surrounding himself like a tin pot dictator with children so he can demagogue and politicize an issue.

    Unless I missed your criticism of him.

    nah, most likely your'e just a hypocrite like the rest of your ilk.

    This isn't a mass shooting.

    I'll put my money on a criminal history; probably street gang involvement.
