If the casualty reports are accurate, this was butchery.

Ryan, the first person to make a political point on this thread was Murph. It's pretty much par for the course here.

He targeted Walmart intentionally.

He said the store was at capacity as many customers were there to buy back-to-school supplies.

Texas law allows the open carry of semiautomatic rifles and does not require a background check, training or an age limit. Walmart also allows open carry.

So he didn't do anything illegal until he pulled the trigger.

Explicitly so yes.  However, implicitly, this entire thread is political based on whom posted it and his previous posts on the subject.

Well, at least he wore his ear protection.  :unsure:

 

Can we please stop calling the rantings of murderous nutjobs "manifestos"? It only serves to romanticize these bastards.

 

RIP for the victims and their families.

 

The only way to cut down on deaths is to somehow plant their asses as fast as possible. There's too much upside to giving the world the middle finger by going out in a blaze of glory and innocent blood to think this will end anytime soon. I'll be interested to hear how they captured him without shooting him to pieces.

The active shooter training video at Walmart includes the mock shooter stopping in the store to stick earpro in.

At this point you mention a shooting negatively and the fanatics consider it an affront to them.

Unless its a Muslim then they are a terrorist.

This kid was radicalized on the internet no differently than Islamic terrorists.

I wish the media would stop publicizing the names, faces and "manifestos" of these lunatics. Don't give them the fame and exposure they crave.

Agreed generally

Perceived social media pressure will cause corporations to change what they sell or how they sell it (ie, flags, shoes, etc), or platforms to censor people.  The problem is, then someone points out "well, if you're doing that, then what about this offensive thing?  What about that injustice?" and it becomes a quagmire and they lose any semblance of having consistent policies.

Countries are no different.  New Zealand should have said screw that guy, we've chosen a balance of liberty and security that caters to the vast majority of our populace -- the law abiding, and we aren't going to change our way of life,  bend, bow or break to the demands of a crazy handful of people because our society won't be your hostage.  We're not going to change who we are and sacrifice the rights of the vast majority of our populace, well beyond the point of diminishing returns,  in order to take an ineffective swing at the radical few who will never be completely eliminated and will always exist. You get nothing. You get nothing out of this.  But instead, they roll over and comply, and so why wouldn't other crazy nutjobs decide to follow suit?

Funny enough they did for one, and only one,  the gay black liberal that gunned down the news crew on live tv.

You have just described Soviet media practice regarding terror attacks.

Surprising that the manifesto gunman was taken alive, considering the firepower that was assembled in response, and their penchant for saving the last bullet for themselves.
