The shooter in Dayton was a Warren supporters, a socialist and a registered democrat. Sounds to me like the rhetoric of the democrats drove him to do what he did.


So how is any of the above a connection to Trump?

Now you know why this shooting has dropped out of the News Cycle. The leftists are loath to actually admit it's their hateful rhetoric that is spurring on this kind of violence, IF you simply apply their standards.

Perhaps using the heroine is a feature and not a bug.

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.
If a “good guy with a gun” stopped a mass shooting, would you change your position?

In EVERY instance of a mass shooting, the bad guy is stopped by his own suicide (generally hastened along by the presence of good guys with guns), he is captured by good guys with guns, or he is killed by good guys with guns.

Your disdain for those who choose to carry arms for protection is very strange, considering how they end every single one of these situations.

Perhaps when the bullets start flying, holding hands and singing kumbaya would provide a more expeditious end to the problem at hand.

Some have no opt out provision so there is no legal guidance for a business to disallow weapons, others make the signs and rules that must be followed so onerous that it's nearly impossible for the business to comply with all of the rules.

This explains it better than I can: https://repository.law.umich.edu/cgi...5&context=mjlr
There is no difference in the ability, only the mechanism by which it is accomplished. Businesses in every state absolutely have the right to disallow firearms in their businesses if they so choose.

looks like he got some assistance from his buddy.

Ethan Kollie, friend of Dayton shooter, helped killer buy body armor, weapons parts

Quote:
A drug buddy of Dayton shooter Connor Betts bought body armor and gun parts for the killer — including the 100-round magazine the gunman used in his deadly rampage, prosecutors claimed Monday.

Ethan Kollie, 24, purchased the armor, the “double drum” magazine and the upper assembly of an AR-15-style assault rifle for Betts — then kept them in his own apartment “in order to assist Betts in hiding the items from Betts’ parents,” federal prosecutors allege.
