Happy Holidays From Clackamas: When Can We Talk About Gun Proliferation?

Gee, I wish someone would let me know when it's OK to have a national conversation about the mass proliferation of guns in American society and the inevitable slide to lethal violence that creates. Because, you know, it's obvious that now is not the time:


The masked gunman who opened fire in a crowded Oregon shopping mall, killing two people and wounding a third before taking his own life, appeared to have acted in a blind rampage with no known motive, authorities said on Wednesday.

The Tuesday afternoon shooting frenzy at the Clackamas Town Center in the Portland suburb of Happy Valley triggered pandemonium inside the mall at the height of the busy holiday season, sending thousands of shoppers streaming out of the complex as authorities arrived on the scene.

We know precious little right now about the gunman or his motivations:


Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, was the masked man who stormed into Clackamas Town Center Tuesday afternoon, fatally shooting two people and wounding another before turning a gun on himself, police said.

Roberts does not appear to have a criminal history in Oregon, according to court records. He had two speeding tickets earlier this year.

Court records show that Roberts and a woman, Hannah Shoemake, were evicted last summer from their Happy Valley apartment.

Roberts' mother answered her door at her Portland home, but declined to comment to an Oregonian reporter. "I loved my son very much,"she said.

There isn't really a lot to say that hasn't already been said before. But it's worth noting the terror and chaos that these scenes inspire:

No, then we would hae even more shooting deaths.

Can you picture being in a bar downtown at last call with all the patrons armed?

GREAT idea allowing guns in schools by the way. I'm not sure how much more idiotic you can get.

Hey, here's a great idea, wingnuts! Let's hand out free assault rifles to anyone registered to vote! That would cut crime down, right?

Sigh.

But But But:

The mall in Oregon had signs up:

"No Weapons Allowed".

How could the shooter bring a weapon into the mall?

Was he a Obama Supporter?

If guns were illegal he never could have stolen the gun in the first place.

Where do you think most illegal weaponds come from? They are stolen from someone that legally owned them.

Sooooo, you're blaming a legal gun owner for the crime of a criminal?

I'm blaming the NRA and the Republican party for standing in the way of a constitutional amendment restricting the sale and posession of guns in the US.

What a big man blaming everyone else. Which democrat had tried to pass such an amendment? I must have missed Obamaís speech on taking away guns, but I did catch Bidenís 2008 speech on him never allowing his guns to be taken away.

'Assault rifle'? Assault rifles have almost never been used in crime. They are rare and extremely expensive. It is not a simple thing for a citizen to legally own them.

That claim of yours is a load of crap. Only 10% to 15% of guns used in crime are stolen from someone WHO legally owned them.

Save some of your blame for pro-RKBA democrats. Harry Reid is one reason there won't be restrictions to RKBA in the near future. He and the U.S. House will see to that.

The democrats have complete control in Minnesota. You should encourage the DFL to enact gun laws that emulate New York or Massachusetts.
