Typical day in Umerca. If they're not reporting 'your' reality (and in a positive light), kill the fuckers.

And here we go with everyone using it as a hammer to bash whomever they wanted to bash in the first place before the bodies are even cold and way before we have any facts. We don't even have the shooters name yet, much less know anything about him, but I have already seen it blamed on Trump and his well know hatred of journalists, Milo Yian...fuck it I can't spell it, you know who I mean...because he recently said he hoped for vigilantes to start gunning down journalists) and Maxine Waters because of her recent comments (that last one was Hannity, BTW).

Could have been inspired by any of those things. Could be Islamic terrorists (we haven't heard from them in a few months), could just be a standard issue workplace shooting, could be a schizophrenic off his meds, we don't know. Yet everyone is certain that it is Those Other Guys.

A butthurt jackass who was pissed about a story on him they did in 2012 for which he sued for libel and lost so it can't be blamed on Trump. And he used a shotgun, not the evil dreaded AR-15.

Doesn't fit the preferred media narrative, so this story will fade away fast.

I'm sure he was a responsible gun owner.

So ban guns?

Do you advocate banning other things when they are misused to cause the deaths of others?

Fwiw:
https://www.10tv.com/article/suspect-an ... rrod-ramos
The suspect in the deadly shooting at a Maryland newspaper building has been identified as 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos of Laurel, Maryland, law enforcement sources tell CBS News.

. . .

A Twitter account matching Ramos name with a location of Laurel, Maryland, includes years of tweets railing against Capital Gazette and includes details of a yearslong legal dispute with the company.

According to an unreported 2015 opinion filed in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, Ramos pleaded guilty to criminal harassment in July 2011. Five days later, an article about the case appeared in The Capital, one of Capital Gazette's publications. The story detailed accusations by a woman who said Ramos harassed her online and off for months, calling her employer and trying to get her fired. The woman eventually went to the police and Ramos pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of harassment in 2011.

The Twitter account that matches Ramos' name began tweeting about Capital Gazette several months after the conviction.

In July 2012, Ramos filed suit against Capital Gazette for defamation, according to the 2015 court filing. The complaint was just four paragraphs long, but Ramos filed a longer 22-page claim several months later.

In 2012, a judge dismissed the lawsuit on the basis that "there is absolutely not one piece of evidence, or an assertion by you that the statement [in the article] was false."

"I think people who are the subject of newspaper articles, whoever they may be, feel that there is a requirement that they be placed in the best light, or they have an opportunity to have the story reported to their satisfaction, or have the opportunity to have however much input they believe is appropriate," Judge Maureen M. Lamasney said when dismissing the case. "But that's simply not true. There is nothing in those complaints that prove that anything that was published about you is, in fact, false."

Ban or regulate, depending on circumstances. With rare exception regulate instead of ban. Guns are basically like cars and should be treated similarly.

Licensing, liability insurance, etc. EZ game.

You want to know the most ridiculous thing?

Now that we have a pretty good idea about his motive and that it wasn't particularly political, that won't stop anyone from blaming it on his politics. Or more accurately, finding some reason to affiliate him with whatever group they want to demonize and blaming it on that group's politics.

He does remind me a bit of Doris Dumbass.

Kind of ironic how his actions basically prove that the original article about him was spot-on.

I was going to mention Doris Dumbass and how not taking him seriously could lead to problems, but I a friend got busy watching Anax's tentacle hentai.

Therein lies the conflict between treating harassers and people who make specific threats as adults who mean what they say, without violating their civil rights. So people obtain concealed-carry permits, and I do not disagree with their right to do that.
