    As for this thread, I am very disappointed at how it has deteriorated...

    This is a tragedy. My adult students here have wanted to talk about it, with some making comparisons to our own political shootings in 2004 and 2010. This has shocked many of my students, but when I inform them that the political rhetoric is every bit as poisonous and divisive (if not more so) than here in Taiwan, they then have some understanding. Sadly, it has been a topic of conversation here all day.

    My prayers are with the families of all of the victims (dead and wounded), especially the nine-year-old little girl as well as to all children who lost parents. No parent wants to see this happen to their child and no child should grow up without a father or mother...

    Sadly, there have been a lot of scummy comments in this thread. Perhaps this is just a symptom of the poisonous divisiveness in the body politic today...

    With the reported condition of the killer, it looks to me like a mass murderer with political delusion. Assasination attempts are not as usually as messy as this.

    For all he knew he killed the politican with a bullet to the head, but he was reloading a 2nd clip?? Why? I think he was troubled man determined to take as many people down with him, if he hadn't been stopped I'm betting he would have turned the gun on himself.

    Not convinced on your "suicide at the end" forecast, but tend to agree on the other points.

    He emptied a 31 shot clip (which i didn't know existed) and was in process of reloading. At least according to current news releases. Also reported is that he was systematically moving down the line shooting individuals in sequence.

    Indications suggest this guy just had a goal of coldly racking up a massive body count.

    Precisely, hasn't got the hallmarks of a political killing at all. More of a mass murder spree like Columbine. I think he would have turned on the gun himself if the cops has surrounded him, he probably didn't count on civilians tackling him though.

    Is this what libertarianism is all about?

    That would be incorrect. There are a lot of things in life that are not illegal, but not moral or good or wise. Being legal only means you can do, not that you should.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
