    Your hyperbole aside, the ex-marine who did the shooting was not a criminal prior to this. He had PTSD, which imo, probably faciliated his "snap" away from reality.

    You must look at the big picture. Life is not nearly as neat and ordered as you might like it to be.

    Surely an example of the old biblical line: Live by the sword, die by the sword.

    Plagiarizing Ron Paul's twitter account is just as disgusting, and insulting to our troops as reading it the second time around...

    Tragic event, but the man had PTSD. The two men killed knew he had PTSD. What can they throw at him?

    This could have easily been prevented.

    Yeah, I'm still sticking with my initial impression that this is one of the worst ideas imaginable. I would be willing to grant some leeway if the guy was a mental healthcare professional, but ...

    Yeah, if the guy had some type of episode, you can hardly fault him for what happened, especially when others knowing put in in such an explosive situation

    With all due respect to Ron Paul and to the original source of the platitude, I don't even have a Twitter account. Don't read it.

    With that said, is this the tactic now? Gun rights under fire so every single gun incident makes national news to drive the agenda to ban guns? Think about it people, the MSM is trying to shape opinion rather than reporting the news objectively.
    He's the most lethal sniper in American history and has a best selling book. Of course it's national news.
