As of now news isn't reporting suspected killer.
Knew if I came here I'd find the information.

So let's just do nothing. That's working out well.

All the usual suspects here going on and on and on about gun free zones are simply changing the subject because they don't want to actually deal with the problem. Because in their minds, gun free zones are the problem, not too many guns that too easily fall into the hands of mentally ill mass murders. (And we are not even allowed to try to keep them out of the hands of the mentally ill because that wouldn't be fair. How messed up is that?)

Nope, too many guns can't possibly be the problem. It's all those gun free zones that are going around the country perpetrating the mass murder. I guess if we ban gun free zones, all the massacres will stop.

More laws won't stop criminals from getting guns, bombs, gasoline, knives, nor any other tools to commit crime.

Blah, blah, blah, blah. Thought and prayers for yet more victims. The US has surrendered to criminals who easily access guns.

You are, in effect, surrendering, to criminals and lunatics.

Not too surprising that the murderer is an alt-right nutjob.

Yes for those who are willing to die themselves but take out as many as they can before.

Very, very few people die in mass shootings. Most mass shootings occur in gun free zones.
The majority of shootings are by black people in black neighborhoods. They already ignore the current laws. So you want law abiding people to have no means of protection from those people?
Last week not too far from here a couple druggies broke down a door and attacked a man in his home. He was able to get to his gun. He killed one of them and wounded the other one. He was able to protect his wife and kids. You would like to remove his ability to protect his family?

Still nothing...

Even though police are not releasing a description, there must have been tons of witnesses giving their story to the media and yet, we donít hear anything about race.

Iím betting it wasnít a white guy and this story quietly disappears from the news cycle by tomorrow afternoon.

Many are already on a suicide mission and really don't give a damn if they are shot but I see chaos from everyone shooting without using common sense.
