And yes......the shooter had ties to ANTIFA among other groups, like a posted above.

So that's that.

How so?

I still don't think you get it.

I said it is ridiculous to have gun restrictions to prevent gun violence. I didn't say we need to repeal laws against unwarranted violence.

You TRIED to use the rape analogy, and ended up furthering my point.

You said this.... In fact, no gun law would have stopped this, so we should just repeal them all.

The fact of the matter is that no law can stop anything, thus using your logic we should just repeal them all.

Crimo struggled with the issue of violence. Most suicides happen in April, and Crimo attempted suicide in April. That is, violence turned toward the inside. If the flipside of fascism is eye pain, then Crimo had decided to turn the violence he struggled with toward the outside. For 2022, mass shootings largely occurred linked to entertainment or celebration (night clubs, graduation parties). It seems that he wanted to inflict the eye pain, to introduce sad effects, while people were in happy celebration.

There is no ideological motive according to police.

Yep looks like another mentally deranged very young man.

As a teacher I have SO much to say about this. Not really difficult to see where this was going. I mean, years ago, really.

Death is death. Carnage and destruction are finality. This is pushed by what we have become. Social Justice was put onto the wrong track with diversity as its core when assimilation was the correct road.
What...?
The liberal disease, anthropomorphic promiscuity. Basement dwellers allowed free rein: Deleuze "Perhaps my speech is too free."

The time at recess was not interdicted, promoting more screenal space addiction and sloth, theatrics to entertain. Reinforcing the scopic drive, the perpetrator comes to wishing to see the pornography of the premeditated event coupled to the desire to entertain.

We don't think Crimo's 512 followers should be defined as "spiritual bonds." They were only part of the audience like parade goers were part of the audience. The spiritual bonds, if any, are likely not religious bonds either.

'In order that an affirmative will to destroy shall actually occur, three conditions must be fulfilled which are rarely found together: extensive atrophy of all releasing driving forces, complete or nearly complete lack of spiritual bonds, and finally, untrammeled activity, which in turn demands urges that are strong, but are almost bare of quality.'
(Klages, Science of Character, The System of Driving Forces [1910])
This is...nonsensical.
This is the kind of instance where the Red Flag laws might be able to help, but the same people screaming about how law enforcement didn't do anything ahead of time oppose them.

Anyone in favor of red flag laws is evil. Their only actual purpose is to legalize SWATing gun owners.

What are your thoughts on the role of social media creating incubators for this…a sort of organic radicalization? I find the existence of places like that disturbing. Parents would have a hard time monitoring it.

I'd have no problem with holding Social Media more accountable... but right now, they only really act if someone reports something. For instance, I got dinged by Facebook recently because someone didn't like a comment I made about the new casting on Dr. Who.

And the end of the day, the proximate cause was that this man was allowed to buy five guns even though he had two domestic violence complaints against him. Not that other people on Social Media fed into his crazy.

Well, how many times do we hear this now? And yet the freaks are free to roam about murdering people.



Police said the 22-year-old suspect was “known to law enforcement…” One question that will be asked in the days to come: Were they aware of the violent videos have been online for many months?



And this will be what Democrats can push on. "The shooter was known. That's why we need red flag laws so we can come and take guns away from people before they have a chance to hurt anyone. We need to able to remove firearms from anyone that might be a potential threat".

Once they get that foot in the door, well you can imagine it won't take them long before they push their way inside and are grabbing guns. Because I can see that being a goal before the next presidential race.

And so? It would have been nice if someone took this guy's guns, wouldn't it have?
