It would appear, at this point, his motive was to ruin his parents' lives.

Dayton LE clarified that shooterís sister is among the fatalities and will not confirm where her body was found.

Obviously this is a developing story.

He could have done so with a simple murder- suicide.

Instead, he chose to take as many as possible with them.

Noticed the majority of the victims were black.
Was the sister's BF black? Can't seem to find that detail.

Rarely is the best possible solution resides at either end of the debate... it is a gray middle ground. Sensible people know this... sensible is probably a foreign word to many here on CD which isn't a reflection of reality.

More than likely the first sentence in your post are coming from those that like debate one far end of the spectrum and the later is from those with experience and sensibility. I wouldn't assume they are all from the same camp.
I do not want to ban all firearms. But rather than argue that with you, lets address the issue that I raised. If we are to allow people to carry firearms wherever and whenever they want, that does increase the risk of harm to non armed people due to accidental discharge of a firearm if nothing else. So there's always been an implicit promise that the good guys would protect the unarmed. But now we are finding out that the advocates of open carry everywhere are saying "oh no..we only do this to protect our own family". Well, if that's the case then I see no benefit in allowing them to carry their guns everywhere they want.

That has NOTHING to do with your post, this is not about a gray middle ground or banning guns or arming everyone. It's about how useless this whole NRA meme of "good guy with a gun is" when it's obvious in this thread that the good guy's only goal is to protect himself.

Any ideas why the President of the United States is still playing golf as hit resort right now and not on a plane back to the White House or to El Paso or Dayton?

I'm pretty sure that this is his sister's FB page https://www.facebook.com/megan.betts.6

And his mother's https://www.facebook.com/divachick1
