Fifteen dead. A real tragedy, esp. for a small school.

@neologist,
Apparently the shooter tweeted his intent a day or so before.
Sorry, I can't find it yet.

Radio I am listening to has callers remembering past shootings. It must be devastating to those folks having to relive past tragedies.

And now new members in this terrible club.

Such a tragedy. It´s like a war of some sort. Is it racial again this time?

@OregonFlyBy,
Don't know.
20 year old shooter reportedly told prospective victims to.stand up and state their religion.
He's now shot dead by cops.

@OregonFlyBy,
Initial reports are saying he was asking people their religion and then shooting people who admitted to being Christians.

@Baldimo,
Did you just pull that out of your butt? I haven't heard any such thing.

@Baldimo,
Really? I guess the reports from different news media are very different.

Given the description we've received of the situation, it would have been difficult for him to do that.

<shrug>

It's all guessing right now.

@glitterbag,
One person said that to a single newspaper. It has been repeated by other media quoting that one source.

Reports here quote one person as saying he asked people what religion they were but nobody has said that he was targeting people of any specific religion.

@boomerang,
... and former neigbours of the shoote say that he liked target shooting, was often seen riding a red beach cruiser bike and wearing military-style, green pants with black boots ...

There will be a lot more speculations.

@glitterbag,
Of course he did. People like Baldy, with their pathetic need for guns, are responsible for what happened. He has blood on his hands so he's trying to muddy the waters.

@izzythepush,
I will never understand this relentless need for guns. If it's a hobby I don't see why the gun enthusiasts couldn't join gun clubs and hold all their weapons at the club, safe and secure. If it's self defence, it's self defeating. I would not want to live in a society where any idiot can buy a gun, it's crazy. Where I live the police are not armed, in fact there probably isn't a gun within my locality. You should try it crazy America.

But you cant can you because the crazies are running the show over there.

@eurocelticyankee,
Agreed, it's a completely alien culture. How can anyone claim to be free when they're too scared to walk the streets without arming themselves first?

@Baldimo,
Yes, you were absolutely right Baldimo. He was after Christians...

@McGentrix,
RW fools are out in force trying to assign LW motives to the shooter that have not yet been shown to be accurate. I wonder if you saw that too.

In that both use limp wrists, yes.

I read this AM that the pistols the shooter had were from the "Too Fast, Too Furious" gun debacle. Ok, not really, but what a debacle that would be, huh?

@McGentrix,
Says the big girl's blouse hiding behind his gun. Take your gun away from you and there's nothing left, just a little frightened half man.
