Wasn't AntiFa was planning on laying siege to El Paso in September? That was just a few days ago.

Make of it what you will.

Time will tell.


I highly doubt they'd target Walmart, a VERY liberal company.


Well the “resistance” leaders are on record hating “smelly Walmart shoppers”.


Truth. The cafe crusader progressives identify Walmart customers with the right, poor rural folk who need to shop there because we can't afford their expensive organic # at the local Fresh Market or whatever. Just because Walmart's leadership stopped selling "assault rifles" (a lot of good it did, eh?) doesn't mean Antifa doesn't hate Wal Mart shoppers.

There's still no evidence that this guy was Antifa though.

Perhaps it's time to start examining why so many young men are exploding? It isn't because they're young men, but there's something to do with society that's putting this pressure on them. Young men have always been young men.


It's cultural, look at our video games, TV, our heroes, easy access to more powerful firepower, violence is the sop, and an overall sense of helplessness causes postal reactions to stress. 3rd mass shooting in a week...

gentle intellectual types are looked upon as losers and pussies.

Prayers for the killed and wounded and their families.

You know what's really crazy though?

The guns have always been here. The mass shootings haven't.

So something changed, and it wasn't the guns. It was the people and the society around them.

It's the f# SSRIs they're pumping into everyone. They are known to trigger manic episodes in unstable folks, and doctors will prescribe them for literally anything.

Toothache? Here's an antidepressant to help with that.

The people of Walmart are the great unwashed, but a good portion of them are the same ones who will vote Democrat for the chickens in their pot too.

Authorities trying to determine if the shooter obtained the weapons legally 😎


Is this really the time for "cool" emojis?

No one ever said the progressive perception was reality.

I don't think that's all of it or even a part.

I think these are the kids who have never been tested, never been allowed to test their limits and actually snap. Most kids do that at a young age, when they're young enough they aren't going to really hurt anyone. They meet that side of themselves and recognize it so they can control it. They test each other, get hurt, but learn boundaries and respect that way.

But these are the participation age kids. They aren't allowed to play rough games - someone might get hurt. They aren't allowed to win and lose - someone might get hurt. They never test their limits and learn who they are, really are.

So eventually, some of them drop off the deep end and snap in a way that's catastrophic and they don't really understand what they're doing because they never learned all those lessons.

Yeah, culture can exacerbate it, but only because the weakness was in there to begin with.

It's looking like a cartel hit.

Isn't that your field?

Are you saying you are contributing to these problems?

You are very correct. This is a great explanation. It is sad that this is the outlet they choose.

While I agree with everything you just said, that is entirely a culture problem. Our culture used to be the thing olaru still thinks it is, and these mass shootings didn't happen as often then. Now it's what you described, and these kind of shootings are increasing.

Blood is still wet on the floor but some still want to make ideological/political points on ATS and already pointing fingers.

That says "multiple suspects" in custody, not "multiple shooters" in custody. Very important distinction.
