I think the same thing every time there is one of these killings. If they are so miserable, take themselves out but leave the innocent people to live out their lives as intended.

Nice thought, but many would continue to kill until faced with good guys with guns. Then they do what most cowards do, and commit suicide.

Not that it would be ok to kill anyone, but when I hear about some loon who wants to kill his boss, then goes to work and shoots poor Mary the receptionist, and a bunch of other people, yet never get the boss before they commit suicide, I just go

I wonder why at least one of the eight did not turn the incident into a gun fight?

Not everyone carries a gun, and even if they do, not everything goes as well as it does in the movies. The speed of a firearm ensures you only have a split second, if that, to react to a situation most people can't imagine happening to them.

Because in these inner cities, only the criminals have guns....whereas in in the real America (like in rural Missouri), this would never happen because everyone is armed.

Oh wait...

Because that's what they do.
Well, if this plays out like 99% of all the other shootings, the person will be a Muslim, or a left-winger.

It goes without saying whatever we find out, this person will still obviously be another crazy person. Sane people don't do this crap.
