No. Just a crazy person with a gun.
And other crazy people with guns, want to deny reality and call the whole thing a hoax and a conspiracy theory.
Reality can sometimes not go the way that you want, but it's not healthy to make up alternate worlds and conspiracies that don't exist. It is best to accept the truth, learn from it and move on.


There is no deep state, the Government does not go around starting mass shootings.
Its just that we have crazy people.

Sometimes the crazy people get guns. Sometimes they do the unthinkable with those guns.
Donald Trump and the Republicans that he picks are all in charge right now.They have the Presidency, the Majority of the Senate and they have the numbers on the Supreme Court now.
You have all the power.

Who would pick a black male, former military, current engineer, clean record, uses a hand gun. A good conspiracy theory have at least some truth mixed in to hang the BS on.


I am going to have to leave this forum if this is the best we can do.

You all are using way too much logic and critical thinking skills.
Next, they will start accusing you of being part of the deep state conspiracy.

It's truly hard to believe that so many Americans think that everyday things are other then what they appear.

"Going Postal" started a LONG time ago. Every day many millions of people at work find their anger rising....some quit, some learn meditation, some take medications, some learn other coping mechanisms...and some decide they have to "get back" at all the people who are part of the hierarchy.

In the USA it's very easy to buy and own a gun in order to "get back" in a way that "shows them" who is boss.

I had a tennis partner that the Post Office actually let go with full pension and benefits because their profiles showed he was a likely candidate for going postal. And it was true. The guy would descend into long rants about how Bill Clinton was responsible for his bum shoulder and for his poor parentage (strict dad). He was obsessive-compulsive among many other things.

MILLIONS of such people exist.

Whether a gun owner or not, millions of people can SNAP at any time. Ask any cop about spousal abuse...or bar fights.

Sounds more like it is you that is wrongheaded about this.....certainly you cannot be suggesting that 99.999999999% of people can't possibly snap? Heck, 4 to 5% of the population are sociopaths. Millions are classified with other serious mental illnesses. This is in addition to plain old anger and drunkeness and drugs and all the other things.

The reason for no coverages is that one particular large Elephant demands every second of the news cycle - and mass shootings simply aren't rare any longer. Simple.

Trying to explain away our 10X or more incidence of mass shootings as some conspiracy....is just strange. Just look at the math....stats....it's normal now.

Gun killings (murder) are 64% of US Killings, 4.5% of UK.

Somehow THIS is a conspiracy, but the Nader guy just arrested for child porn that met with Bannon and Kushner on a high level......who has a LONG record of other arrests and indictments for same....and who knows what else.

That is just "business as usual". Nothing to see here. Those are "good people" who help our admin and the Trump campaign.

Lots of shady stuff goes on in this world. Most of it isn't in the news. When you look close at just about anything you can see boogeymen. Sometimes it is very real, other times it's just a bunch of unrelated events cobbled together.

Militarism, on its own, did not start World War I however created an environment where war could occur. Militarism, on its own, does not explain, as a member above stated, where:

Militarism in the US, & the glorification of the, as you put it, "warrior caste" is part of the equation here & elsewhere.

As an aside & possibly of interest to some, from the December 1881 issue of The Atlantic:

Caste in American Society

"American society is an anomaly which must puzzle all those who do not believe in it..."

Do a search here on CD from the forums, LOTS and LOTS of threads where people are calling for complete bans or MUCH tougher gun restrictions, as a result of a mass shooting. its also no coincidence, there are usually 'gun turn in or buyback' events held not long after a mass shooting.
