Had to be asked.
O v o and I bet they’re not going to ask.
Alright, can I just? Lemme just, hang on.
If anybody actually thinks this is some kind of conspiracy, or something, I’m gonna go ahead and tell those people to fuck off.
You’re gonna take this incredibly tragic, monstrous event, and make it about the government? Or some kind of higher power supplied him, or something? How dare you.
There are literally dozens of ways he could’ve gotten the money to buy those things, if he even bought some of them at all. Making this about anything other than the victims is foolish at best, and absolutely disgusting at worst. Fucking shameful.
That’s all I’m gonna say.
^ I couldn’t say it better myself.
Are you people seriously implying that it wasn’t his fault? Like oh, poor guy, someone make him do it, he was probably brainwashed, the government is behind this and we should blame Obama, etc etc etc.
I wonder if you all would ask the same questions if he wasn’t white.
Yes. It’s a valid question. That’s a lot of red flags that should have gone off if he didn’t have a dealer’s license. Apparently they didn’t. That’s a huge flaw in the system we keep being told exists to protect us from terrorists. Domestic terrorism is still terrorism & him being white is probably part of how he flew under the radar to commit this horrible crime. It doesn’t need to be a grand conspiracy to be troublesome to people who know how hard it is supposed to be to lay hands on an arsenal.
The local gun club rejected his application on the grounds that he made them uncomfortable. That this fact didn’t emerge until after he perpetrated a mass shooting is very scary.
I can’t buy too much allergy medicine in a given amount of time and I have to sign a registry when I do so, presumably so that if I’m cooking meth instead of dealing with allergies, they have a record of how much I’ve purchased. But this guy can buy $20,000 of weapons and ammo in three months and no one says boo? What?
So yes, let’s absolutely ask these questions, because no one did until it was too late.
Exactly. Preventing something like this from happening again includes addressing the mechanics that made it possible this time.
I do find these all valid questions. I mean the rules are different in Canada, but I mean still. All of the guns and ammo I could see him getting of they were stolen, but again red flags SHOULD HAVE come up. But the body armour and explosives he would have had to buy I imagine. Why any sane person truly needs body armour is beyond me. But this guy really should have been caught long before this happened. It is s terrible tragedy, and the victims families should not have to deal with conspiracy theorists saying ‘oh someone made him do it’ because that is utterly disgusting and rude.
He looked to me like he is a mentally unstable person, and killing in cold blood I could picture this man doing again. This shouldn’t just end with him getting a slap on the wrist. I hope it doesn’t…
