    It's bad when the family isn't surprised.

    Also, if any of those six people (or anyone else in the vicinity) were carrying a firearm, perhaps the death count wouldn't have been as bad.

    Or maybe if his family had let authorities know they saw this coming before rather than after the fact.

    Stories like this illustrate better than anything else why the citizen can't depend on police for protection. Cops aren't psychics. With the exception of patrols, they generally only go where they're called... after a crime has already happened or started. One citizen with a gun could've ended that shooting spree immediately, before anyone even got their phones out to call 911.

    My friend's office is near that coffee shop was and she was in lockdown for awhile. At least that asshole did the right thing and killed himself.

    Doing the right thing would have been to only kill himself and leave everyone else alone.

    I've been to Portland, Oregon a bunch of times, which is pretty close to Seattle. If he had lived in Portland instead, and done this a year ago, in a section of the city I was visiting, I could have been killed.

    I guess God was hungry and wanted some of his fave beefcake.

    I don't have the stats with me but i would put cafes toward the top of list of shooting locations along with churches, Qwik-e marts, liqour stores, gun stores, and work places.

    At every gun store I have ever been to, EVERY person working there (and often half the patrons) were packing - many times with multiple handguns on them, and rifles or shotguns concealed in easy reach behind the counter. Trying to rob a gun store during operating hours is generally suicidal.

    Yeah, sounded like something stupid i would do just for the rush of trying to pull it off. I tried stealing expensive collectible superman cards right in front of the owner and cop just for that reason, but the pedo owner caught me trying to stash them.

    Yeah, if I were that type of person I'd probably try robbing a bank before a gun store (if done while they were open). Like you said, it's probably one of the places where even the largest concentration of patrons are carrying, let alone the employees/owners. They're also very competent with those firearms.

    One gun store here had ~30 firearms stolen after hours about six years ago... luckily the morons tried to sell them all at once about four miles from the store, and the cops busted them in a sting.

    I"m too lazy to look up the CCW laws in that stupid state, but there might be less dead folks if some armed citizen was able to hinder this asshole's spree.


    That being said, what the fuck is wrong with people? I mean blacks killing blacks is expected, but this moron is give white guys with beards a bad name. Fuck him.

    Oddly enough, this is what I always figured BIV looked like. Stereotypical post-grunge Seattle douche.

    Everyone always talks about banning guns, but what about the real culprit? Fingers, stabbings and knife crimes are a much bigger problem in the UK than gun crimes in the US so if you ban guns in the US and take all guns off the street, you will start to see people using knives and other objects. I say we need to get rid of these fingers, they cause too many problems.
