    What a dumb ass. Leaving off poor target selection, what piss poor execution and failure to meet his own objectives. Only idiots use guns for something like this. They are low lethality weapons and a waste on group targets.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    He is reported to have been busted for drugs in April and reported to have gotten a gun from his dad for his birthday in April. What's up with that? It would be interesting to know which came first. If dad bought his son a gun after his drug bust I'd like to know what the hell dad was thinking.

    Sandy Hook was in the news....then a couple months later Congress was voting on gun control laws. Thankfully none of that crap passed.

    There are stories out there trying to piece together a profile of the shooter. Some of the kids he went to school with said he was a pill popper. He had pending charges for possession of prescription drugs in February and trespassing in April of this year. On his Facebook page his friends were both black and white.

    It isn't just the fact he chose black folks as his victims. He also chose people of faith congregated at church of worship to carry out his heinous crime. A place where there wouldn't likely be anyone around to physically stop him.

    So while everyone tries to figure out this 21 year old man's reasons for what he did and who is to blame, (the drugs, the parents, the internet,) it is important to remember sometimes there are those among us who are just evil.

    Wanting to curb violence and actually curbing violence are not the same thing. Gun control has NEVER EVER EVER TIMES A BILLION curbed violence.

    Perhaps I should call it an Insanity Agenda? Gun control certainly fits the dictionary definition.



    Curbing violence isnt the agenda anyway.....curbing civilian firearm ownership is. Hence why Bozo made executive action to stop WWII M1 Garand rifles from being shipped back to the states. When is the last time you hear someone getting shot by one of those?

As I grew older, I figured out a way to balance it all and they toned down but it's not always that easy to notice. The kid may have been in his room playing video games or reading and they just thought he was the intellectual type or the geeky kid. So they might be a little clueless but sometimes it's just that people get the wrong idea.
    I am not so worried about the alone time, but the fact that parents need to know their kids well enough to know what is actually going on with their kids.

    I completely agree with this.

    I read Helter Skelter years ago, and realized that some folks are just really, really evil.

    This is exactly why I carry a gun every day, but I also pray fervently that I will never have to use it.

    And, yes, I do carry at church every week.

    Someone in another section posted a link to a Daily Beast piece opining that the GOP contributed to this guy's maniacal act. Everyone is quick to rush to judgment here. And the reality is, nobody knows yet. I watch a lot of true crime shows, and you are exactly right - there are people who are born evil. At 21 years old he didn't even have enough time to spin too much in his head about who he hated. 6 years ago he was the same age as my youngest son who today worries about acne and girls more than anything else.

    I think there were probably a lot of things that were inside this very sick individual, and he may very well have chosen this church for the reason you said - nobody theoretically would be able to defend himself or herself.

    It's typical in this country lately for the conspiracy theorists to run amok right out of the gate. He may have had a bad reaction to drugs. It wouldn't be the first time. He may have had a tumor the size of Arkansas in his brain. It will take time to find out what was in his mind, if ever at all.

    I read HS too, and had nightmares for days. Those people epitomized evil. Toss in psychedelic drugs, and look what you ended up with.
