    At least 3 dead, 5 wounded in St. Louis shooting

    At least 3 dead, 5 wounded in St. Louis shooting

    ST. LOUIS (AP) - An employee armed with an assault rifle and a handgun walked into a manufacturing plant Thursday morning and opened fire, killing at least three people and wounding five others, authorities said.

    Several hours later, police were still inside Swiss-based ABB Group's plant, going room to room in a search for both the gunman and additional victims, police Capt. Sam Dotson said. Authorities had not confirmed whether the shooter was among the eight.

    I'll bet anything you want to bet that the shooter did -not- have an assault rifle.

    Best wishes for all involved.

    ... because assault rifles are impossible to get or ineffective for killing people?

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    No... because it was probably an 'assault weapon' and the reporter doesn't know (or care that) there is a difference.

    (Never mind that assault rifles are not impossible, or even difficult, to get)

    1. It's a shame things like this happen; my sympathies to the victims and families.

    2. No bet on the news ID'ing the weapons correctly. I have seen actual news stories where some reporter said "the suspect was in possession of a bolt-action assault rifle" or "a semi-automatic revolver."

    Sadly typical.

    Hardly the point being made.

    I don't believe anyone has argued that point.

    Remember Obama wanted Shotguns classified as assault weapons.
