Looks like it was an errant tweet after somebody thought they heard gunshots. All calm in SD

I guess "well-regulated militia" is like just group of people having guns and want to kill everyone or something.

This was a massive BREAKING NEWS headline for a while on the CBC's website this afternoon.

The national taxpayer-funded public broadcaster did that as a result of an errant tweet.

Every station was piggybacking off each other for awhile. Milking it until it was confirmed otherwise.

So he passed background checks.
Doesn't appear to have a criminal record.

Described as quiet and nice guy, had a family.

And yet we'll do everything to NOT blame the gun.

I always get a sinking feeling when I see this thread bumped.

Bemusing to constantly see 'but he was a nice guy!' without fail after these tragedies.

It's amazing how often you hear that after any sort of crime.

Or it's just the opposite sometimes-if I recall rightly, didn't the Virginia Tech shooter once set a dorm room on fire, or set something of significance on fire, some number of months or years prior to the shooting? I dunno about anyone else, but that would've probably set off some MASSIVE red flags for me. Even if people don't specifically envision someone like that shooting up a school, chances are pretty good they're still going to pose a serious danger of some kind to the public.

Oh, of course not! Why on earth would anyone want to discuss guns in relation to the topic of gun violence? That's just crazy talk!

So is it true what I read in the paper this morning, that in the year 2016 there have already been 42 mass shootings in the US?


Clearly a lot of nice guys here. Everyone can pretend to be nice if it gets them what they want..

All he cares about is trolling.
