    and I'm glad the police were armed and able to deal with the situation. I'm glad it wasn't a wild west shoot out with a dozen hillbilly poorly trained concealed carry hero want-to-bes exchanging fire and confusing things for the police

    what really would have been great is if this nut job didn't have a semi automatic rifle.

    Why is the solution on the right "we just need more people with guns to protect us from nutjobs with guns" and never "how do we keep the nutjob from getting a gun?"

    They were already "illegal" in the area. Last I checked, criminals don't follow laws, otherwise they wouldn't be criminals.

    I tend to believe that without 24-hour news, most of what we call "mass shootings" would merely be on the local tube, and not become national stories. There can't be more shootings now than there were in the 70s and 80s, right?

    This morning's event is obviously an exception, because a Congressman was involved.

    I have to say that in this particular incident, while listening to Rand Paul's description of events, my thought was that it was fortunate this guy didn't have a scoped bolt action hunting rifle. 50 plus shots and only 4 casualties is very lucky. Paul described bullets hitting the dirt around people laying on the field with no place to hide. A dozen accurate shots could have easily tripled the casualties. That's not meant to be an argument here, just an observation of this incident.

    I know you're being sarcastic here, and I agree we shouldn't brush off a few dead bodies at the local warehouse when could be doing something. I'm just making the observation.

    Here's what The New York Times had to say:

    the shootings … quickly focused attention on the degree to which inflammatory language, threats and implicit instigations to violence have become a steady undercurrent in the nation’s political culture

    of course, that was from 2011....
