    Shhhhh! Don't bring this one up on the forums, it doesn't fit the profile this site likes to hate on.

    Actually Spree Killer would be a better term.

    Kind of knee jerk, right? Ever even consider that more guns or fewer guns may not even be relevant to this case?

    What I loved is how Obama came out and responded to the shootings. Essentially, he took two seconds talking about it, and then side tracked to the debt ceiling and Obamacare being defunded by the GOP.

    Classy guy that Obama. I was saddened to not hear him say that if he had a son, it might have looked like the shooter, however.

    While I certainly don't hold army personnel in high regard, I don't see why people on these forums would "hate" ex-marines?

    He's not an ex-Marine, and more evolved humans don't pass judgment nor succumb to preconceived notions about people based on their occupation.

    Yeah that's right this disturbed individual could have just as easily knifed or soggy banana'd 12 people to death on a Naval base, the gun was irrelevant.

    Really? You don't have any preconceived notions about say, a prostitute, physics professor, drug dealer or marketing manager?

    What IS relelevant in this mass shooting spree is the fact that this was essentially a "gun free zone" as with all the other shootings of this nature.

    When you dont let people arm themselves for protection this what you get.

    Waiting for the authorities to protect you gets you 12 dead before they can even do anything about it.

    let me see if i understand this correctly: are you whining that a psychopath doesn't get the same attention as a previous psychopath?

    Not moral judgments, no. And this is still the case even though you lumped in illegal activities as "occupations."

    Soldiers come from an wide range racial, economic, social, political ethnic and religious demographics. Not only that, within the US Army it's self is an extremely wide range of various occupations. We have Soldiers who are doctors, lawyers, pilots, network specialists, mechanics, electricians, etc.

    Lumping Soldiers together as one monolithic group displays your ignorance and petty small mindedness.
