Gabby Giffords shooter didn’t think so. Young libtard cracked because Giffords wasn’t liberal enough for him, the final straw was she didn’t vote for Pelosi as minority leader. that was what put him over the edge.

“My thought was similar: the number of recent shootings is suspicious. I even saw an article claiming a couple of shootings at gun shows (a first, for me.)”

It is all about what the MSM decides to cover. If they covered defensive shooting like they do mass shooters, and spiked mass shooter stories like they do defensive shooting, we would have a whole different dynamic.

That dynamic would not favor their statist agenda, so they do not do it.

It’s not the “gun culture” it’s the “Democrat culture”.

The Dems habitually accuse others of what they themselves are.

This college is relatively close to Guns Point Mall, correct?

REMOVING MEN FROM INFLUENCING A CHILD’S FORMATIVE YEARS HAS, HOWEVER, thanks to the man-hater lesbians who convinced females that men aren’t needed and that females ‘can do it all themselves’.

Good point. Married moms are a right wing voting block.

“...It’s two black males in a fight...”

Heh, thought so....more of Holder’s people.
There are too many of these incidents too close together and at once. Makes ya wonder how many are being perpetrated by the communists in DC.
They obviously needed one in TX because due to all the pro-gun stance this state has taken. They shouldn’t have used Holder’s people though....too stupid.

But it’s not a mass shooting. Instead of being on the urban streets this 1 was in a “public place”. That’s why they assumed it was another big massacre rather than the pointed hyper-sensitive dissing typical in Chicago et al.

This is Katrina represent gang related....


That is exactly what I thought when I first heard the news. We shall see, but when I heard there were two shooters going at each other, and the injured were caught in the crossfire, I thought of all of those displaced people who moved to Houston after Katrina.

It seems there have been a spate of public shootings lately that fit nicely with Obama’s agenda to keep the public stirred up.

Absolutely it is. The mainstay of 0dumb0 & demoRATs & partisan hack media...never let a crisis go by wasted or unanswered, without strident calls for more gubmint, more controls, more knee-jerk laws, incendiary accusations against white conservatives, etc.

Is it random copycat stuff or I wonder if Democrat sleeper cells are being activated?

The answers are Yes & Yes. Copycat killers hoping to catch their fleeting moment of notoriety.

And demoRAT deranged leftists & wackos, wanting to carry out killings against conservatives & patriots & evangelical Christians, pro-lifers, etc. Are deranged demoRATs, lefties & wackos willing to do this, even if it means sacrificing their own lives? Absolutely, without a doubt. Remember, liberalism is a mental, genetic disorder.

"I heard of it on the radio in Arizona an hour ago. They referred to it as another “school shooting”.

Hi, marktwain -The media is so stupid. It is not regarded YET as another "school shooting".

So far, the news around Houston is that two people were fighting and each drew guns on the other. A couple of innocent bystanders were hit and a man had a heart attack.

The media is so stupid and predictable. The rush to be first - let the truth follow, if at all.

"This is more "shark attack" journalism. A spike in the COVERAGE of such stories to make audiences think they are occurring with greater frequency."

"When I tell my kids what the country was like when I was a kid, they ask how come we can't live like that now. It's hard to explain to them the culture war that's going on in this country. "

Same here with my niece and nephews. I wish we could turn the clock back a lot of times so they could see what it was like. It wasn't perfect but was so much better "when we were young".

These kids are so innocent and see some much more violence and insanity than most of us until we were much older.

When my niece was little, I tried to explain to her how her grandmother would wash clothes and hang them on a clothes line.

She asked me why her grandmother didn't just put them in the dryer.

Times change.

Predictable, but not stupid.
I’m convinced that they’re attempting to create more of these via copycat using an onslaught of new and explosive, “School Shooting,” reports every day. Doing this, they believe, will turn the public’s eye to the point where they’re DEMANDING gun control.
But, you probably already know this.
Still, I’m calling sheriffs and elected folks as often as I can.

Perhaps I should also call the media.
Asking them why they’re creating more of these incidents...

This was not a random shooting.

“He said, ‘I don’t want to fight you, I’m not trying to go to jail,” said Eyyonna Fontenot, a student who witnessed the argument and shooting.

She said the gunman initially walked away, but then changed his mind when the other man said something else.

“Whatever ticked him off, whatever they said, [the gunman] got it out of his backpack and just started shooting,” she said.

Did she just say that the reason the Marines are posted at embassies is to protect classified information, not people?

Update: Two guys got into an argument. Obummer's son turned to walk away but had second thoughts so pulled his gun out and started shooting. He hit the other guy three times and a maintanance man. A woman was taken to the hospital for a heart attack or something. Butt, he also ended up shooting himself in the buttocks.

Even the Houston Comical’s article (which had SIX contributing writers and ran for 2 pages - front page and most of an interior page) had to admit that shootings were frequent occurrence in that area. What is Queen Shelia doing to reduce violent CRIME in her district? It isn’t the guns that are the problem. It’s the people who believe that using guns to settling “getting dissed” that are the problem.
