    I think you need to know his politics. I don't. His actions are a symptom of mental illness and not the other way around. When you can post your bona fides to make a clinical diagnosis, let me know.

    Would white supremacist, be a more acceptable descriptor? He got the gun for his birthday. Great choice, mum or dad.

    Yes. This young man is mentally ill. Cold comfort to those who are grieving and who are going to have to come to grips with the incomprehensible, I know.

    Your dumb as dirt SPLC statistic conveniently began their look back just after the 9/11 attacks ands you know full well why those lying a-holes did it.

That means he did the killing with a handgun and unless he reloaded it was most likely a 9mm or a 40 cal. as the both have higher capacity clips than the 45. They must have all been head shots. Gruesome stuff.
    Thanks for the technical information and visual detail. Are gun clingers now going to critique the weapon and shooting technique?
