I doubt we will hear coverage of this 24/7 for the next week.
His victims were also Hispanic.

His motive was robbery.

Why ban blackbelts? I'm wearing a blackbelt now as it's part of my daily business attire.

It is obvious what you are trying to do. If that same man had a gun, many more would be dead.
You don't have any proof of that. That's the same as you saying, "if my sister would have been born with a sack of testicles he'd a been the best lineman in history to have ever played the game of football".

He was in possession of a gun during the last killing. He stabbed the security guard to death in the 7-11 and took the gun that the armed security guard had. He cut it off the fallen security guard's belt, holster and all. When confronted by law enforcement shortly after, he dropped the gun and the knife as was taken into custody.

And, the only thing that stopped his killing and crime spree was being confronted by armed law enforcement.
