    That's the world today. There must be a religious reason, and not just because the guy is an egocentric idiot.

    View A: Not Muslim? Not African-American? Nothing to see here!

    View B: White/male/Christian is "default setting" and everything else is "other" and needs to be pointed out.

    That is not the world today, that's America. Mass shootings in public places occur in America with a frequency and deadliness unknown in any other country not currently at war, with the possible exception of So. Africa. It is a peculiarly American phenomenon.

    Loose your job in pioneer-heroical every-man-for-himself make anti-socialist America great again, and people go into freefalll and do desperate things because there is no functioning safety net. Whereas, in 'socialist' Europe, if you loose your job, no one kills five people in a rage because there is a functioning safety net to get you back on your feet again.

    Of course it must. Nothing to do with gun nut culture - nothing at all to see there, move on safely, Citizen, it's not yours to question.

    The juicy irony here is that the London attacks occurred 2 days previous.
    And Trump mouthed off that no one was talking about gun control because the terrorists carried out their attack with rented vans and knives.

    And the very day after Trump opened his mouth, a fired employee walks into his former place of employment and pops 5 people.

    Irony ??

    This is so far beyond irony that words fail.

    Presumably Virginia will be imposing a travel ban on those from Illinois?

    How many "loose (sic) your job/spray the place with bullets" scenarios are you imagining have occurred in the US?

    He hasn't said he is "imagining" any number of such scenarios.

    How many imaginings do you have of posters imaging things?
