Just to follow up on an intensely CT theory that was proposed in an earlier unrelated thread...,
Do you suppose the local politician in the area is for or against gun control?
These shootings seem to happen wherever there is a public servant who has stated he or she was against gun-control. Or in a place where gun ownership is not regarded in a negative light.

This is what you get with your NRA gun laws and a lot of rabid KKK-influenced psychos on the streets.
Mind you, my country ain't any better. Two school shooting in a year! We are ahead of the USA with random gunman statistics!
But then again, they say that Finland is the most American country in Europe.

I live in the Bronx, and let me say, you guys are making too much of a big deal about here. I don't even think this should be on this site..
12 people were killed according to the news (it's all over here) and the gunman shot himself. He was a former worker at IBM and just got layed off. He was just some crazy fool. Seriously, it's sad to see how big of a deal the Topic Poster is making of this. Talk about paranoid.

Well Fox news was reporting that it was an assault riffle which would be your AR-15, SKS type weapons. High Powered rifles would be your hunting weapons such as a 30-06 (30 aught 6).

Is it me or is this happening more often and getting more coverage in the MSM? i smell a false flag operation to scare people into handing over a bigger chunk of their Second Amendment rights. I'm not downplaying what happened, it was an incredibly tragic event. I'm just saying there's more to this than there appears to be.
I am still certain that our 2nd amendment rights will come under fire soon due to this incident.
