A disgruntled employee opens fire on coworkers, police, in Aurora Illinois

A manufacturing employee, about to be laid off, shot and killed 5 people last Friday in Aurora, a small subdivision outside Chicago. He also shot and wounded several police officers who responded to the scene. One of the victims was a 21-year-old intern on his first day. The shooter had a previous felony and had possession of the gun illegally. He had worked at the factory for 15 years.

When do we stop blaming inanimate objects for the mental health of individuals? If someone ran people over with their car you don’t ban cars you ask why that person would make a decision like that. But change that car to a gun and the gun is to blame to the individual.

I am amazed this story has not been buried yet for not fitting the narrative.

Banning guns in America (which is where this is eventually going) should never be a political or a party-line issue! But the forces who want the guns out of American citizenry's hands, are NOT Republican or Democrat! They keep people at war with each other and slowly and innocuously, chisel away at our freedoms and Constitutional Rights! Wake up America! You're asleep and overly obese! Wake up!

If only you Americans handed out a gun to everyone as soon as they turned 18, that would solve these mass shootings... oh wait...

There is more to this story. This man worked for this company for 15 years. He must have been a trusted employee. So what changed? Was he being bullied and harassed at work? Someone at this workplace knows exactly what led up to the point when this man couldn't take it anymore. When he started shooting, did he just shoot randomly, or did he have specific targets in mind? Did he shoot everyone he wanted to? When a person decides to go "off message," that decision has already been made. For example, going into work, with a loaded gun doesn't just happen. What preceding circumstances and situations contributed to this tragedy? Maybe he was just a bad guy who went bezerk for no apparent reason, but I doubt it...... Those of you, that contributed to this incident know who you are. And I'm not referring to the person or persons who sold him the gun.

Another disgraceful example of law enforcement failing to enforce the current gun laws we have on the books.

Honestly this story really hits home for me. I live near by and I had to pick up my little brother from grade school, who was even closer. It really freaks me out how shootings happens and how random they are. Stay safe and sane people.

We are a country of people viewed as the lowest denominator. We are nothing better than the scum who prowl the streets at night. This is what they want you to believe. They will never stop gaslighting you.
