Do we know that THIS Walmart was a gun free zone? Considering this is Texas and I recall most Walmarts in TX I've visited sold guns, I would say probably not. With that many people in this Walmart, I'm sure there were a few concealed weapon holders.

No but if it were a black man that did it, the left would make excuses for it. If it were a drive by gang shooting the left would find a way to blame a gun shop in Indiana.

I detest white scum bags who do these shootings. If I were king I would have them hanged and their corpse fed to hungry Hyenas . What I wouldn't do is blame every gun owner in the country and seek to punish them for the misdeeds of the few.

The bolded is one of the reasons I don't understand why some hard right people have an almost diety like attitude towards him.

What is sad is that you are naive to think that conservatives aren't doing the same...

Both of which is sad...

Yes, of course, and their strict gun control has nothing to do with it. Even though them being a homogenous civilized society doesn't keep them safe from non-firearm mass attacks. They just had 35 people murdered in an arson attack last month. But that is what people do a homogenous civilized society. They burn people to death, but they would never shoot them. Because they are a homogenous civilized society.

You are just grasping at straws trying to come up with some other explanation, other then the obvious one, gun control.

The shooter posted this manifesto to 8chan, a far-right extremist group frequented by White Supremacists.

The shooter was not a brown Muslim man or an illegal Mexican, but a homegrown white man that hates minorities.


Sigh. While this may turn out to be his manifesto, I have to respond to this post.

It is NOT confirmed that it's his manifesto. It IS confirmed that police are investigating a manifesto that was allegedly posted to 8chan. "Tied to the shooter" because someone said it was his manifesto - that is still not confirmed.

In case you miss my point: You don't seem to understand the difference between "Police say this is the shooter's manifesto" and "Police are investigating a manifesto".

And no, 8chan is not "far right extremist group frequented by White Supremacists". Just because some dbag on Twitter says that doesn't make it true. 8chan is simply where old school 4channers went after that stupid fake "Q" got middle aged moms to visit 4chan, and then bleat about how it should be moderated. Idiots.

When it's time to forcibly remove (confiscate) the 300 million guns in this country you should volunteer to assist.

Most people still wouldn’t bother carrying, but a few would. And the shooter would’t know which ones in the crowd, they were.

Some of the shooters would likely change their minds and not do it in the first place.

And how many lives would be saved as a result, without a shot being fired?
This happened in TX where lots and lots of people carry.
Wasn’t a deterrent at all.

Only one of those nations had the guts to do something about the problem, and do it immediately. America is full of wussy politicians greased with gun lobby money.
only one of those nations has a second amendment.
