(CNN)One person was hospitalized with critical injuries after a shooting Saturday at the Westroads Mall in Omaha, Nebraska, according to police.

The suspects involved fled the scene and are at large, Omaha police public information officer Joseph Nickerson told CNN in an email.

The mall is being searched as a precaution and people are being asked to avoid the area, Nickerson said.

Agents from the Omaha field office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have responded to the mall after reports of an active shooter situation, according to a tweet from ATF's Kansas City field division.

3. Nebraska is now a "second amendment sanctuary state"...

Gov. Ricketts recently made this symbolic response to the perceived threat of Biden gun controls. “The good life”...what a thing to say and what an idiot.

“The proclamation is symbolic. It states that "Nebraska will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to regulate gun ownership and use in the Good Life" and sends a message that Nebraska will take any necessary steps to defend the right to keep and bear arms.”

4. Enough is enough

It's time to stop shopping at stores that sell guns and take them out of young people's sight.

8. +1

Being in one of those, and living to tell the tale, is becoming the new status symbol.

Unless, of course, you're Wayne LaPierre - and then it's still a yacht paid for by your idiots.

10. We have a whole generation of people who grew up with mass shootings

and would hopefully be less gun crazy than older generations. Change is going to come eventually, it's just taking so very long.

11. I hope you're right.

It's all becoming so normalized, that for some it's becoming the coping mechanism of choice for when they're having "a bad day."

"My boss fired me? I'm shooting up my old workplace."

"This (name a minority) got the best of me? I'm shooting up a (mosque/temple/black church/etc.)."

"My girlfriend left me? I'm shooting up the bar where she works." (this once happened just half a block from where I worked)

9. I can't keep track of all these shootings

damn there are way too many of these lone wolf isolated incidents that have no common denominator whatsoever, except guns.

12. Locking

Alerted on for not meeting the posting rules for the LBN forum, which include “important news of national interest”... sadly, a single person shot is so common that it isn’t important national headline news, per the consensus of forum hosts. Feel free to repost in the Nebraska group.
