Kill everything- with your gun!


[nypost.com]
A man killed five people during a shooting rampage in Bakersfield, California before ultimately turning the weapon on himself once he was cornered by a deputy, a report said.

The rampage started when the suspect and his wife entered a trucking business near a gun shop at around 8 p.m. and opened fire on a man inside — killing him, according to The Bakersfield Californian.

The gunman then trained the weapon on his wife, fatally shooting her inside the business as well.

The husband then shot and killed a third victim, a man who confronted him at the scene, before fleeing and driving to a house nearby.

Once at the home, the suspect gunned down two men inside before hijacking a vehicle.

A woman and child were inside the vehicle at the time but managed to escape without injury.

As the gunman was driving away he was spotted by a deputy and suddenly pulled into a parking lot, where he shot himself in the chest and died.

Is this gun madness catching like measles? What is happening to us? Going as crazy as 45?

Does it disturb anyone else that these things barely even rate news coverage anymore because it's become so commonplace?

We don't even get thoughts and prayers anymore...and where was the President with guns ablazin' running at the gunman to protect everyone? Where were all of the "good guys with guns?" How come they didn't stop this?

Like 45's antics we are growing numb to these shootings. I had not heard of it till I read here on the FORUM. I have to echo your thoughts....what are we as a society becoming? Not only being shooters but ignoring the enormity of shootings.

Your quality of sarcasm can take a learned ear. I appreciate that. And so I'm trying on this one.

But overall I'm really not onboard with it here, OK?

Gunners gotta kill. It's their 2nd Amendment right.
