I presume this means that there's no waiting period.

39. The article says he bought the gun from a "Cherokee shop"

which sounds like a gun store to me. The article also mentions that the shop is cooperating with the investigation. If that's true, then he passed a background check.

The only instance if which he wouldn't have had to pass a background check is if he bought the gun from a friend, or from a rando he found somewhere.

40. It would have turned up the son of a youth pastor, super religious,

and an avid hunter, nothing else. Baptist church, straight arrow, tons of shame around doing anything that makes us human, but those aren't things that show up on background checks, along with treating women like shit. That latter is the strongest predictor that a guy will go off the rails completely.

If someone had bought him a Real Doll (look it up), this would likely not have happened. And sex robots can't get here soon enough, we're tired of being under threat from these guys.

@UrsulaPerano

Important to note that the idea that his motive could be related to a "sexual addiction" and the fact that many of his victims were Asian women aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.

AAPI women have historically faced sexualized stereotypes and sexual violence.

since childhood. From his actions and statements to police it seems
like he couldn't stand the guilt his religion gave him. Most don't go this
far and some resort to self-mutilation. Misogyny all the way back to
Eve and her apple.

14. That was my thought.

Looking at his booking photo it's pretty plain to see why any normal woman wouldn't want to get near him. But he has a "sex addiction", and it's the women's fault for providing a loser like him an outlet. Otherwise he'd be a normal, well adjusted, productive member of society, right? The "logic" some of these people employ blows my mind.

10. Methinks this is bull s**t

If he's a sex addict, why on earth would he gun down the very women he hires to service him?

"Sex addiction, by way of definition, is a compulsive need to perform sexual acts in order to achieve the kind of “fix” that a person with alcohol use disorder gets from a drink or someone with opiate use disorder gets from using opiates.

Sex addicts will seek out multiple sex partners, though this in itself is not necessarily a sign of a disorder. Some report sex addiction manifests as a compulsive need to masturbate, view pornography, or be in sexually stimulating situations.

A sex addict may significantly alter their life and activities in order to perform sexual acts multiple times a day and are reportedly unable to control their behavior, despite severe negative consequences." -- Healthline

None of the symptoms include gunning down asian massage parlor workers. Methinks it's like that whole type one diabetes, yeah, that's it, my blood sugar spiked and I turned into a racist.

Nope.

tend to have a love/hate relationship with the things they are addicted to.

The answer to your question (whether it is the truth or not we don't really know at this point) is given in the article:

Long, according to Baker, said the massage parlors represented a “temptation he wanted to eliminate.”

A man's sexual temptation is always the woman's fault.
Rather than process his sexual addiction as self-hatred, he hates the women he's attracted to.

Plus guns.

Maybe even a little mix of both. I lurked on an incel forum once and I couldn't believe the warped views of the world these guys have. It's not difficult to see how one of them "having a bad day" could lead to them lashing out in a violent way.

If the guy has a history of frequenting places like this, they'll find out and there might be some validity to his story. If he doesn't have a history of frequenting places like this they'll find that out too, and it's probably a hate crime. Either way, he's going to spend the rest of his life in jail. What pisses me off is that when these guys ruin their lives they always want to ruin a bunch of other lives.

I guess it's more like his self-hatred and frustration with himself lead to him lashing out at these people he murdered. Whatever his rationalizations happen to be are nonsense and irrelevant. These people died because he's a pathetic loser who couldn't cope with life.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/03/09/cindy-yang-spa-owner-runs-firm-sells-access-trump-maralago-report/3113441002/
Founder of Florida spa tied to Robert Kraft case offered access to Trump and family at Mar-a-Lago to Chinese clients
Doug Stanglin and Christal Hayes
USA TODAY
Mar. 9, 2019

Cindy (Li) Yang, a Florida entrepreneur who founded a chain of spas and massage parlors that included the one where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was arrested recently for allegedly soliciting prostitution, also runs a consulting business that has offered to sell Chinese clients access to President Donald Trump and his family at Mar-a-Lago, according to the company's website.

Yang, a donor to the Republican Party and Trump campaign, popped up this week in photos showing her at a Super Bowl viewing party at the Trump-owned Mar-a-Lago that included a selfie with the president, the Miami Herald reported.

According to Mother Jones, Yang's company — GY US Investments LLC — has a website, mostly in Chinese, that shows her and purported clients hobnobbing at the presidential retreat.

While Mother Jones' examination on the website includes critical detail about a New Year's Eve gala at Mar-a-Lago, a cached version of the website using the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine from August 2018, examined by USA TODAY, also confirms the key points of the magazine's story.

And was in a car chase that had to use a cop car maneuver to stop him. And he was NOT choked to death or shot in the back. Not as serious a crime as Skittles position or selling loose cigarettes. Did they stop for a “Churches” Chicken Samich on the way to jail. Will he get organic jail food and be released to his mamma while waiting trial? What if he was.........., oh never fucking mind.
