admin edit: Since this is yet another tragedy in the U.S. that is still unfolding, I've moved this thread to "Breaking Alternative News" (from Off Topic News) even though it doesn't have the correct formatting or "sources". There were no sources available when the ATS Member "murch" posted it. The Main Stream Media hadn't reported on it yet.

Police said three bodies were found outside the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave. and four were inside the building. Among the deceased is the gunman.

This thread is about the tragic and fluid situation happening in Wisconsin, it is NOT about whether guns should be legal or illegal, it is not the place to discuss whether or not there is a conspiracy afoot to make guns illegal in the U.S. by way of "mass shootings".

Feel free to start a thread on any of those topics in the appropriate forum, but PLEASE DO NOT derail this thread with them.

Who would shoot up a bunch of Sikhs?
They are some of the nicest people I have ever met!

They are very peaceful, kind, and incredibly respectful of others.

Payers and peace for all involved!

Sorry for the victims but I have to ask if this is motivated by religion or perhaps another stage to justify the lobby for gun control?

Or is it just a copycat?

Unfortunately, we have to ask these questions these days because nothing seems to be what it looks like anymore.

Peace

Really? You wanna try taking their guns be my guest but you certainly won't be theirs. Gun control in the states is one of the most stupid ideas I've ever heard.

Is a bomb better than a gun? How about a knife? They all kill people mate.

I agree they are very good people. After 911 there were reports of violence against Sihks here in the US. Unfortunately some racist idiots can't tell the difference between a Sihk and a Muslim . In the US most people have no exposure to different religions.

True, but here in the UK, where not everyone has access to a gun from over the counter. People generally don't go on mass killing sprees. Every other day.

You see with a knife people generally stand some sort of chance. Hense the phrase "don't bring a knife to a gun show."
