This one sentence raises a black flag for me.

"He also had a history of mental issues"

Ok, then if he was having mental issues, one could them assume he was on medications of some form. If so, what were they and did they have brain chemistry altering effects?

Oh wait, nowhere in that article does that question even get raised.

So are the media here reporters, or, repeaters providing second hand information for "sources"?

Amazing. No one is even mentioning that the shooter is a Muslim. The meida sure are dishonest when a Muslim is the perp.
What''s up with that???

You make a very good point regarding the mental issues and the medications altering the brain. This is something that needs to be looked into. What are these drugs doing to the person`s overall mental status.

I would like to add. What websites did this guy frequent? Were these guns and ammo supplied to him by a group or foreign source? Just saying is this a possibility? Lot we don`t know here. It need more investigating. We may never get the truth because the authorities will probably not release all of it. He is dead, so trial, most of the family is dead, the mother was out of the country, so need for a lot of evidence. The government or state authorties can tell us whatever they want too.

Sounds like dead dad was the typical anti female Muslim male.

Guess they'll just continue this "mental illness" B.S.....seems like its the new "workplace violence" term.

What more has to happen in this Nation before we can all agree that these Muslim scumbags are our enemy
