A member of the temple council told local news that over the weekend a few men were walking around outside the temple “casing” it. He said those same men were back early this morning walking around, then a few hours later the shooting happened. Yesterday, the other Sikh temple in the Milwaukee area received a phone call from someone asking when the busiest time for the temple was. That definitely sounds like more than one person to many people in Milwaukee. And, the lone gunmen, lived in 2 homes on the same street. He moved from one house a few blocks away about 3 weeks ago, to the home currently being investigated for explosives. That is striking many people in my area as odd and has people asking questions.

The eye witnesses are all saying more than one shooter though. And this one was not in a dark movie theatre......
A gunman allegedly killed six people and wounded three others before being shot dead by a police officer at a Sikh temple outside of Milwaukee Sunday morning
The gunman allegedly shot one police officer who was helping a victim ten times. The officer survived the shooting.

Take away the guns already. If you can't use them for good, don't use them at all. I think It's time you gave up your guns. How many more need to die?
Simplistic view of a complex problem.
Here's your gun control The black market, fallacy of gun control
You might as well advocate removal of our free speech...
Those intent to do harm, will find a way no matter what laws are passed.
The real issue is mentall health, if anything it should draw attention to that problem, taking away guns won't stop crazy...
I know what you're saying, and you're right to a certain degree. But a gun is more powerful than a knife, and hense can do more damage and kill more people. Shouldn't we limit the damage these sick individuals commit, by taking a more powerful weapon away from them. Ok you can get it on the black market. But these individuals as we have seen, have bought these guns legally.
sources have told ABC News the shootings are the work of a "white supremacist" or "skinhead."
Authorities also were trying to trace a single, semiautomatic handgun recovered at the scene, sources told ABC News.

Background checks are required...for handguns. Shotguns? Rifles? Etc? Walk in with cash, walk out with a gun. Handguns are more highly controlled than any other firearm.

This shouldn't be about gun control right now.
We must think of the lives of the potential victims, including their families and friends.
Now is the time for police, doctors, and the community to do their jobs in help protecting the lives of innocent people.
