    While we're at it, we can make murder illegal, too. Oh, wait...

    Meanwhile, whoever claimed that the killer in this case was a muslim extremist was dead wrong -- the guy was a Texan, with a concealed weapons permit, which is a lot worse.
    Are you saying that since he's black, that explains everything?

    All we know is that they have nothing to do with guns.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Anyone remember when their first thought upon hearing of such an instance would have concerned a worker "going postal"?
    That was my first thought without the Postal referrence

It reminds me of a thread on DP a few weeks back asking the question "would you watch a good-news channel" - based on today's coverage of this event, I'd have to conclude this is the type of coverage we as a society seem to crave. I wonder if it's possible that if we didn't "glorify" these events fewer people would commit such crimes.
    I would add to this that after days of news coverage we all will know the shooters name and not much else.

    I wish the news outlets would refer to him as the shooter and not inflict his name on us over and over again so we can't get it out of our heads.

    The victims should be important, not what the shooter had for breakfast this morning.

    This nonsense from you of all people? You have served in the Navy.... and for you to bring this type of crap into this particular thread is just disgraceful.
