I am trying to wrap up my Hootenanny review by this evening, and TTAG is very much on the story so I will refer you to them for ongoing coverage. However, after watching the video that the WBDJ killer shot of himself walking to within 2 feet of his victims and standing there for an appreciable amount of time before opening fire it was abundantly clear to me that it mattered not that the killer chose to use a gun.
From 2 feet away he could have just as easily chosen any other tool to commit his despicable act. The victims were busy actually working, and I can’t really fault them for not being at “condition yellow” with respect to situational awareness.
In that state, they were completely helpless against a heart set on murder. No amount of “gun control” could have saved them.
NSFW video below the jump.
Sad. Shocking. Utterly pointless.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones of the victims.
Update: YouTube took down the video, which is not surprising. It is still up at LiveLeak though. I do not share it for voyeuristic reasons, rather because it is news, it is out there, and attempts to censor information abhor me (it is YouTube’s right as a private concern, I disagree philosophically with their choice)
