I'm not a news organization. I'm under no obligation to be objective. My gut told me something about what happened. The facts are backing that up. I'm sorry that the truth of what happened makes you uncomfortable.
As long as there can't be a conversation about sensible measures to stop it from happening again without the gun cultists getting in in their heads that 'dem libs gunna take mah precious guns,' this # is just going to keep happening.
....he "has a history of mental health issues, i.e., manic depression and/or bi-polar disorder."
And to clear up all the conservative v. liberal bickering on this thread: Read through his stuff. He was clearly a white supremacist, anti-abortion, Christian, conspiracy theorist.
Calvin Floyd, who hosted the “Rise & Shine” television show on NBC affiliate WLTZ, said Houser’s behavior was known to be erratic. “He was on from time to time because he was a very radical person with radical views,” Floyd told NBC News. “He was a Republican and then I would have someone with a real strong Democrat view on.”

Some of his nonsense definitely veers off the typical conservative beaten path, but a lot of it is the same rhetoric.
I'm not picking sides, and frankly my 1.5 year old acts more mature than some of the us v. them people on here. I was just hoping to clear up some misconceptions with...ya know...facts. He DEFINITELY hated Liberals.
But I too found it odd that he's aligning himself with the Middle East.
*shrug* Nuts in the butts.
Court documents from 2008 say family members of the theater shooter petitioned the probate court to have him involuntarily committed "because he was a danger to himself and others."
A judge issued the order, and John Houser was taken to a hospital in Columbus, Georgia.
While he was at the Carroll County Sheriff's Office awaiting transfer to the hospital, Houser said to his wife that once he got out of the hospital, "he would continue his erratic as well as threatening behavior" to try to stop his daughter's wedding, the filing said.
The wife and other family members of the Louisiana theater gunman asked for a temporary protective order in 2008 against the man.
Court documents seeking the order said John Houser, "exhibited extreme erratic behavior and has made ominous as well as disturbing statements."
The documents said even though he lived in Phenix City, Alabama, he had come to Carroll County, Georgia, where they lived and "perpetrated various acts of family violence."
Houser "has a history of mental health issues, i.e., manic depression and/or bi-polar disorder" the filing said.
The filing says Houser's wife, Kellie Maddox Houser, "has become so worried about the defendant's volatile mental state that she has removed all guns and/or weapons from their marital residence."
The protection order was at least temporarily granted.
She filed for divorce in March.
