The National Guard?


You bet. Had the employee who was shot been able to shoot back things would be much different.

Bob Regan

Did he get away by clicking his heels together while saying "There's no place like home"


The tattoos are what is going to get him caught or when he updates his social media gloating about what he just did...

JF Conlon

Did he get the money or run off in his cute shoes without it?


Red shoes?


Great, now I'll have David Bowie's Let's Dance going through my head all day...

TRUMP supporter

It is so sad what drugs have done to this country.


Funny you should say that. The shooter looks like a trump supporter. I'd blame NRA more that drugs for this pos.


All of the recent shooters have been anti-NRA Trump haters. Jackass.


Good one! Where'd you hear that? Or are you just making things up to fight the reality-based news? You can't do that with guns. Reality always wins.


I get that these last 3 years we've seen a rise in right-wing extremism in the way of shootings, bombings, etc. however this guy was probably just looking to support a bad habit. hopefully he rots in prison for attempted manslaughter


If it's a white boy shooter, it's drugs or mental illness. Black or Hispanic? It's the race. LOL


As a white person, I can speak for whitey; we refer to a hispanic or black person as "gang bangers" in this context lol


Thank the aclu, judges and politicians that make the laws.


Thanks ACLU, Thanks Judges, Thanks Politicians for making attempted homicide illegal! YAAY!


Thank the ACLU, Judges, and politicians for allowing murderers to get 20 years and early release instead of execution. YAAAY!
