5. How many good guys with a gun intervened?

Sounds like the police were on top of this pretty quickly. But I want to know many good guys with guns helped. My guess? Zero.

10. You seem to be a gun enthusiast based upon my reading of your posts on that issue.

I hope that you are a responsible gun owner who practice gun handling safety and spend time at the range so that you hit what you are shooting at if trouble arises.

But too many people don't do like you. My and one of my brothers recently helped a gun owning relative move a few personal item boxes into storage. After we had wrestled the boxes around, we found out that the relative had "lost" a loaded gun and it was likely in something that we handover around. I have no damned confidence that any person the "loses" a loaded gun in person items has enough sense to make sure the safety is off and have a trigger lock on the gun. Too many people running around with guns are like my relative. I expect police officers to be trained professionals who properly handle and properly use guns, if they aren't they should lose their badges and have the issued guns taken away from them.

6. If the shooting began with road rage it is highly unlikely there was a political motive.

Road rage is road rage.

But if it WAS politically inspired chances are he was a Trump supporting bitter clinger.

The guy outshot a Texas Ranger that had done a traffic stop of him and then started his rampage.

The Insanity of letting any malcontent Nazi type buy any kind of weapon(s) he needs. How many deaths is too many?

I am no fan of my Governor here in Ohio, Dewine, but at least that little dweeb republican seems committed to keeping military grade weapons out of the hands of Crazy men.

Only in America, Damn that now misinterpreted 2nd Amendment.
