I guess the fact that we have an "ongoing mass shootings thread" says all you need to know about the problem.

Police found an abandoned black SUV
This does not seem like a typical jihadi attack

Yeah they were saying at one point that hospitals were receiving victims from these shootings while locking themselves down.

I doubt anything will change either. It's been said before, but if Sandy Hook was not enough, what will be?

I still wonder why IRC, a social work agency that provides services to individuals with developmental disabilities was targeted. We are what, barely a week removed from the planned parenthood shooting?

I'm curious about that, too. I had NBC on earlier and people were trying to analyze that part of things, too-one theory was the possibility of a disgruntled employee sort of scenario...but if that were the case, those people usually do these sorts of shootings alone, they don't bring other shooters with them. But again, it was just one of the many speculative theories tossed around.

Heh.

I still say that eventually there will be some very noticeable pushback on this issue from the gun control side. I shudder to think of what the breaking point will be, but I do feel that some coalition of some sort has been quietly and slowly building since Sandy Hook, and eventually it'll become its own driving force. I certainly hope that'll be the case, anyway. But I just know that this insanity cannot last forever. Something has to give eventually.

Looks like they shot and killed at least one of the suspects, possibly live on TV via a news chopper feed.

Yeah, the SUV was obliterated with gunshots. Still, we don't know if this is related to the shooting at IRC.

According to the headline on Yahoo!'s front page, it says they have one person in custody.
