    I don't know if anyone agrees with me, but I think this thread pointed out those who were able to keep calm. I noticed a few banned members from this thread. I had a lot of points, half of which expired so I have some breathing room now, but I noticed that some people, who don't have issues in the normal forum, got temp suspended from this thread. Yet people like me, and a few others, who are hot in the regular forum area kept cool and non-political about this tragedy.

    I think it says a lot about our members. There are still those who are trying to politicize this. Saying "We need to find out what made him tick." Well, maybe we do, but his political beliefs are irrelevant. It's not a political belief that makes someone do this. I wouldn't care if he yelled out, "I'm a tea partier!" before he shot up the place. That's still crock and people know that. People can hate another party, person, whatever, and not put a bullet through their skull.

    I think we need to accept this as a one-time tragedy, and move on. This guy was a raving lunatic, his youtube channel proved it. Try him according to the laws of our nation, and if he is found guilty, sentence him appropriately. And that's where this should end.

    Shocking and so sad. My heart goes out to the families of all who perished. My God, a 9 year old child won't be going to school on Monday

    I've worked in a military trauma station and an emergency room. Kudos to the surgeon's, doctors, and nurses who undoubtedly saved the lives of many critically injured victims.

    Good post. And I agree. This issue has separated those who can be reasonable from those who are not.

    You want to know what made him tick? Conscience dreaming and grammar. Good luck making political hay out of that.
    I am sure there is a market for it.

    this is just terrible.

    much admiration to the two bystanders who tackled the shooter and prevented further deaths/injuries.

    Those looking for a REASON for the shooting are not acting unreasonably, nor is it unreasonable to reject the militant language that has seeped into the political landscape and has intensified in recent years.

    I would offer that it is the lack of concern over the reason for the shooting that better reflects the attitudes associated with an unreasonable person and that not caring about the intensification of militant rhetoric does not indicate reason, but simply the avoidance of making a value judgement.

    Seems to me a reasonable person would say "enough is enough" in regards to the militant rhetoric rather than chastising those who reject it.

    No.

    It's not a stretch to come to the opinion that this person is deranged. However, from what I understand, the police are looking for at least another suspect/accomplice. So a deranged guy shooting a congress woman is possibly not the whole story, and it's very plausible that there is more than meets the eye.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
