Well what do you know, another shooting in a "Gun Free Zone" in a city with severely restricted private gun ownership. Wow that's surprising.

Only government would do such a thing of that I'm convinced, yes there is an all out effort to usurp our Constitution at all cost, the truth will come out after the fact, but the controlled media already has hyped the story, milking it for all it is worth.

The media is feeding this type of behavior by making it front page news each and every time. People that have nothing to lose and are suicidal now say to themselves 'i'll show them all' and go out with a bang knowing if they shoot a dozen people and die that they will make the news in a big way. BAD IDEA but i guess it cannot be helped?
