    NY Post is reporting a Saudi national is in custody, but I haven't seen that anywhere else.

    Cordite is rarely used today. Cordite was the first smokeless gun powder that was manufactured in the late 1800's. Unlike black powder which is an explosive, cordite and today's smokeless powders are propellants. Both today's smokeless powders and cordite smell almost the same but they do smell different.

    You have to be a grumpy old geaser to recognise the smell of cordite compared to today's gun powders. You can still find old ammunition around that used cordite. Has to be pretty old and have a corrosive primer for it to still be able to be used in a firearm.

    Blitzer is saying over hundred injured and that there is No Suspect in Custody.....Police state they have no suspects anywhere like the NY Post reported.

    Old, maybe, but not grumpy, and certainly not a geaser.

    Reports are going to be all over the place right now. I don't think we'll get accuracy for a few days minimum, this is a terrible thing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Going to be a while for information to occur. I am going to shut the news off for a bit. They won't have any new relevant information for the next 12-24 hours unless something ELSE occurs.

    That happened with Columbine, right? Fertilizer bombs that didn't go off or exploded at the wrong time?

    NBCNews reported that on its official Twitter feed as well.

    This may become a push for true mental health reform...if anything can good can come out of this.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
