We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I don't think you can be considered sane and commit murder. But, that doesn't mean you can't understand the difference between 'right' and 'wrong'. Merely from the comments he's made, I think it can be deduced that even he understood that what he was about to do wasn't considered the norm.
Was there no security detail? Was there no armed citizens? How did this guy do what he did, and not get shot himself?
This happening makes it that much harder... a lifelong friend of mine is now of the opinion that all Glocks are bad... never mind that I carry one. The fact that I don't have a 30 round mag for it doesn't matter... all should be banned.
Lets call it what it is, a nut fell through the cracks, and got away with an something terrible. Could the parents have done a better job? Could the collage he was asked to leave have reported the incident to someone? Would that have helped? So meny possible actions could have been taken, but it's all after the fact. But situations like this reinforce why I carry. Every day, every place I can.
The guy was a nut. There was nothing that could have been done to prevent this kind of thing from happening short of creating a police state. The downside of Liberty is that bad guys sometimes do their bad stuff. In a free society, sometimes proaction is not possible and reaction is all we have.
