    Are YOU ALSO suggesting "current events" are more to blame for this than simply some nutjob going off the deep end and deciding to commmit a random act of violence?

    So much for Gun Free Zones. I saw this on the news this morning and then listened to them talk about it on the radio driving to the office. I'm just glad he was a poor shot and didn't hit anyone.

    That is not really my point or at least my main point.
    As far as the "nut job" and his mind set, he stated what got him going. I am sure it is more complex and he probably couldn't account for all the things that made him act this out.
    Now as far as current events. There are a lot out there that would easily attribute this sort of thing to anyone that is ..how can I be less political?
    That is not your even tempered, middle of the road moderate at the very least, clear thinking or maybe someone that is not your left leaning "I know better then you" liberal progressive.In other words if there could be a remote connection to those that support the 2A or a Tea Party sympathizer or a conservative citizen or especially conservative talk show host, the main (LAME) stream media would make that connection endlessly for the next 3 news cycles!
    I really don't think movies cause people to act out. I think they were already leaning in such a direction.
    So I'll just leave it to others to decide if current events lead to this.
    As for me I'll take the gunman's sentiments and just say, "sure looks that way!"
    ABSOLUTELY NOT more to blame! But may have contributed to his warped frustration.

    Lotsa things make people crazy. Just an excuse - and fodder for the misinformed to ply their opinions.

    I agree that most reasons are just that. EXCUSES> I hope you were not referring to me when you said misinformed. My point was not to analyze this twisted individual but to point out how everyone just sat there and left it up to..we'll call it fate. The other part was how in this case any reference to what the shooter posted will probably be totally overlooked given the possible parallels and conclusions that can be drawn.
    Of course this proves "that only the police should have guns" ( sister in law viewpoint).
    Again in real life this could not have happened. It is a "gun free zone"! Maybe WAS is a better term.

    Anyone that believes politics or the economy is to blame or even a primary factor in this unfortunate incident is not only misinfromd, but downright delusional. I'm not saying that about anyone in particular, but I sensed the twist coming on.

    That's the problem with letting things ** ANYTHING ** cloud your judgement. Get far enough off track and this type of stupid stuff happens.

    Really sad.

  8. As soon as I saw this i just thought this is going to hurt the Pro-gun cause. This man was convicted felon with a mental history, which means there is a problem with our justice system, not the gun. He is also in a "gun free zone" (a school) and banked on no one else having a gun there. At 3:40 you can even hear him say about the security officer, "he probably doesn't even have a gun."

    This is the full length video-

    There's a fine line between sane an insane, and the only people that have a paper that say their sane have been in a nut house. The Guard was not in the room someone had went to get him. Everyone was putting there fate in that Guard showing up in time to stop it. That lady probably saved there lives by slowing things down. It would have been a lot better if every one had a Gun.

    Exclamation I live in the area of this incident

    I feel that if there was no ban on firearms in public buildings, that man would not have gotten off a single shot.
    This is what happens when you restrict where law abiding people can carry. If that law enforcement officer had not been in the building, one or more of those board members would be dead.
    If the right to carry for legal self defense was not restricted in government buildings, one of those board members may have been carrying a weapon and could have saved themselves.
    Finally, if open carry was legal in Florida, and the right to carry in government buildings was legal, that man probably wouldn't have committed that crime at all.
    Gun free zones only hurt people who abide by the law.

    Question

    Look what he spray painted on the wall. It's the classic "V" symbol for a vendetta against someone. I think people are right, he wanted to die, but not in vain. He wanted to send a message- albeit a radical one- that he wasn't going to bend over for the liberal agenda anymore. I believe psychologically, he wanted to be the martyr that stirred the uprising. I'm guess his wife being fired had little to do with his actions.

    Of course, I don't sanction his behavior (he probably had mental issues and prior criminal convictions), but perhaps his motive is something we should all think about. If it weren't for "gun free zones" this incident probably would not have happened.
    Freedom isn't free.
