    It was 2 Handguns and ammo in his backpack, also his wandering focus during the attack lends credence to a drug induced psychotic state.. One of the girls that was lying near the front of the class then said that she was sorry for whatever happened to him and for whatever she had done wrong. The shooter then said that he bets she was and shot her. At that point he was just firing on people who were just lying there and stopped when he heard a woman outside and shot out the window by the door. That is when...

Jaques told Breitbart News that he believes officials of Douglas County would also not welcome the President using the tragedy to score political points for a gun control agenda. Any visit by President would be “a campaign stop for agenda to take away American citizen’s right to own firearms” said Jaques in an exclusive interview.

His mother was black. He doesn't seem to have even known his father. He identified with black TV killer Vester Lee Flanagan.

    The Oregon school shootings have a key common thread with other school shootings - the seeking out and murder of Christians. He made them identify themselves by religion and when he found a Christian, he said "you will meet God in a minute" and killed them. Two key elements in some of these shootings: Satanists shooting Christians and the use of a gun. Which leads Obama to denounce the guns and everyone ignores the hatred of Christians growing in this society of humanism which inspired this man of hate, to murder Christians.
