I think it's more likely that people in positions of power are capitalizing on this to make it look like a bigger deal than it really is even though it's a really big deal
this is all speculation until more information comes out and it never may
everyone has totally forgotten about the immigration issue however and will probably never revisit it

guess at least one person in the news room was armed with a couple of handguns but guess didnt get a chance to engage the shooter or the cops got there so quickly they weren't needed.
Foster gathered about 16 employees and told them there was an active shooter. Some employees began taking off high heels preparing to flee the building, she said. “You see it on the news,” Foster said of people walking out of buildings after mass shootings, “and you think, ‘These poor people.’ You wonder how they feel. Now I know.” Foster said one employee pulled two handguns out of his desk drawer and held them for self defense in case the shooter came. Other employees hid. At one point, they refused to open a back door for someone claiming to be police. “How do we know you're the police?” one employee said through the door. After the police entered from a different direction, they began filing outside. Foster said she and her employees kept trying to hold hands to comfort each other, but were told by police to keep their hands in the air.
So.....they had access to an escape route...but remained anyway...
Just let that sink in for a minute...
Perhaps the one person with a couple of handguns wasn't feeling like Rambo on the day and perhaps was not all that competent with those handguns....
You may only see one possible outcome but there are many, comments like yours spawned sayings like armchair quarterback.

Turned out the obscured fingerprint story was BOGUS.
CNN needs to get better sources.
JUST IN: Reporter at The Republican resigns over false Twitter post linking President Trump to Maryland newspaper shooter
A reporter at The Republican resigned Friday after publishing a Twitter post that falsely indicated the suspect who is charged with killing five people at an Annapolis Maryland newspaper was wearing a President Trump-inspired "Make America Great Again" hat.
Conor Berry took full responsibility for the unauthorized tweet. "I am ashamed of my tweet, which taints the good work of fair-minded journalists everywhere," Berry wrote in his resignation notice.

Maybe someone believed trump when he called the media the true enemies of the US?
Maybe the paper wrote a fake news article about his business and it went under .
We will have to wait and see.
I just hope they get the guy alive so he can tell us.
Peddling hatred is not a means to a more civil society. In this both sides share the blame. The voices of the people who refuse to peddle hatred simply don't get heard.
