Oregon school shooting: Shooter asks students their religion, report says
The shooter at Umpqua Community College on Thursday asked people to state their religion and then started firing, one student said.

If he is a terrorist, it makes Obama's speech look dumb.

Senate Bill 941, which expands background checks to include most private person-to-person and online gun sales, became law on Sunday, 90 days after Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed it. Due to a so-called “emergency clause,” opponents cannot refer it to voters.
Oregon gun-sale background checks law gets off to rough start

“Background checks are good for public safety,” she said. “Closing this loophole makes it harder for criminals to get guns.”
Oregon law previously required background checks for sales of guns by federally licensed dealers, such as retail stores, and at gun shows, but not for private sales between individuals.
The checks are intended to flag felons and individuals with a history of severe mental illness, among others, who are prohibited from buying a gun.

Neighbour you admitted several posts ago, you know very little about Pharmaceuticals, yet here you are talking as if an expert.
Which is it?
I repeat again I am knowledgeable on how they are designed, made and tested. I've been on one too, no killing sprees resuted. It was in the US when I lived there.
Federal authorities descended on Roseburg as social media rumors spread of a hate-based motive behind Thursday's mass shooting at Umpqua Community College.
Oregon's top federal prosecutor said he and other government officials have heard the same rumors that the public has about the shooter issuing "some sort of race-related manifesto" before the crime.
