there is no reason the shooter should live if he is proven to have done this.this is not human act it murder.the tax pays have to boot the bill for this guy to stay in prison.if any thing the money they spend on him i think should go to the familys that had there people killed.

Man, good thing this guy didn't have a baseball bat or a knife or his bare hands--he could have killed a LOT of people! That helicopter wouldn't have stood a chance either!

Actually,

1) knives were used to kill over three thousand people at the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001,

and,

2) according to the FBI, in 2007; "32 percent of murders were committed without firearms of any sort--knives accounted for 12 percent, hands and feet six percent, and blunt objects four percent."
