Reports say police responded to his home back in March for shots fired.
He had a permit for the weapon.


Also reported he also has a criminal history, including assaulting his girlfriend in 2006.

He (the shooter) was reported to have been a volunteer for Sanders.

After Sanders folded he apparently jumped on the Hillary bandwagon, as all good Bernie people were told to do. He had Hillary support on his Facebook page.


There were two types of Sanders supporter.

Ones who genuinely believed in his message, and ones who voted for Hillary after he sold out.

This guy is the latter. Just your typical violent "progressive".

He seems to be suggesting that this is our fault as gun rights supporters for not supporting his views on banning firearms. Par for the course in these threads, unfortunately.

I condemn violence in all forms. Attempting to kill 1 person is wrong. Attempting to kill 24 million people by taking their health insurance is 24 million times as wrong.

Then you showed up and all of a sudden its all about you.


It's about defending others as well. The vast majority of us on the Left are not what you and others make us out to be.



You just jump in saying you are hard left but this is not who you are. Did anyone ask? Why did you feel it was necessary to do that? The only thing I can think of is that there was a fast moving thread that was not talking about you. But you took care of that, didn't you...


I don't care if anyone did or did not ask. I addressed the comments I wanted to and it's none of your damn business why.


And you conveniently leave out the descriptor "extreme" so you can make it about you.

Oooo, its none of my damn business... When you put it in a thread for all to see it became the business of everyone reading it. If it was about extremists then it wasn't about you. And everyone has been pretty good throughout this thread at stating precisely whom they were referring to. I believe someone even pointed that out to you a few times. Yet you still manage to miss it when there is an opportunity to turn the attention to you. If you insist this is about you, then you are identifying yourself as an extremist. If you insist this is not about you, then wtf is your problem?

Let's not forget about people like Kathy Griffin, Snoop Dogg and the media outlets that promote them for normalizing violence against elected officials.


So you forgot everything?
You aren't paying any attention at all??

Our LEGACY is the Revolution. We are borne of violence. This is our Heritage Konduit!

Did you know that Thomas Jefferson was supposedly at the Storming of the Bastille in France??

The The Governor of the Bastille, Bernard-René de Launay, surrendered to the mob. But what happened? They drug him, beat him to a bloody pulp, cut his head off and put it on a pike. They carried it around the streets to show it off. Other officers were lynched.

We celebrate this brutality. Yes, that's France but it's so intimately intertwined with our own bloody murderous revolution that it's worth mentioning as our own 'founding fathers' were part of it. The French even sent us the Statue of Liberty because we are so intimately connected politically. We defended them in the World Wars and they aided us multiple times in military matters as well. Our Constitutional documents are borne of the same blood and insane passions.

If you people could see how wrong and evil we all truly are, how unfair we are, how bias we really are....
than you'd realize that your enemy is just as a great as an American patriot as you are. They only wanted a better world just like you did. They saw in your side the evils that you saw in their side.

You are just looking in a mirror....

I read a piece a while back that stated many times when someone goes nuts and shoots up a place, they often have issues of violence at home.

I thought you were going to say, there are two types of Sanders supporters.

One who is a violent shooter

and

One who is just reloading.

No. That's the narrative that was created and you now believe. The vast majority of us on the Left and not much different than those on the Right. We are not radical, we are not violent.

But that does not stop people from believing we are. They fell for the propaganda narrative and now we have to spend our time telling them what they believe is BS.

I look on twitter at the normies, the biggest spotlights (celebs) are spending often every tweet of every day delegitimizing the POTUS and all right wing. every tweet, every moment.
People like Mark Hamill, Cher, Sarah Silverman, etc.

I know most leftists aren't violent terrorists. most simply have their ideological stances they believe in, but the complicit voices of the left not taking to task these mainstream voices that are pushing for insanity is damning nonetheless.

And its also one of the reasons there is a Trump presidency / right wing supermajority..the loud crazy leftists and the silent majority of the left who will ignore or perhaps even give a thumbs up to those crazys....basically it is like the islamic middle east.

If you consider yourself a old school liberal, you should spend time cleaning house. these neo-lib progressives are going to destroy whats left of the party

I'm done. I've said my peace about the issue and I'm not going to dwell on it any longer.

If people want to continue pushing these narratives about the Left, extreme or otherwise, it appears there is nothing I can do about it.

Apparently ignorance has a mind of it's own.

It's ALL wrong. ALL of it.

SADLY this plays "well" into POTUS's devious plans. A great EXCUSE to squash and SILENCE dissenters. It only BENEFITS Trump.

I'll be SICK if the man and his followers USE this tragedy as political capital.

Hello everybody

I just mentioned one thing, i just checked all the german news stations on TV, and everything is more important than that shooting. There are still specials about the burning(and not melting... xD) house in London, now there is live meeting("dialogue") of german unions and the economy(a fool the people show). Even the newsticker says not much about the shoooting, everything else is of more interest than a shot cowboy.

It seems that the world doesn´t care anymore what they do overseas, at least right now here in Germany.

As i say again and again, the majority of the rest of the world doesn´t care about cowboys killing each other anymore, doesn´t take all that America(???) First rubbish serious anymore, because it harms the former USA first and more than anybody else on earth.

Evidence:

Not even any breaking news or something like this, if a high ranking Divided States politician get´s shot nowadays!
The sane world is one step further, meanwhile we just think:
Let them destroy themselves over there, since and with Trump and his puppetmasters behind the curtains they are working really hard for it, they earn to succeed, would make the world a better place...

And again, i am not talking about the majority of sane but fooled former US citizens, i am talking about the ruling circles, the dictatotrship of the rich. Or the party that represents itself as two parties, the influence of "religion", the wild west mentally, that worldwide know megalomania, the world domination dremas and all that stuff.
Stuff the average and sane former US citizens have nothing to do with!

They've been saying stuff like this about tv, movies, music and even video games for years.
If there was truth in it we'd all be gobstopping crazy.
No, this is someone using their own free will not some Manchurian candidate victim of the nightly news.
Get real.

This kind of nonsense is precisely why some people think the media are to blame for what happened today. They have enough people brainwashed like this guy that some are bound to commit violence to "defend" themselves.
