    I'm seeing at least 4 missed target rounds blowing out the door glass.
    I noticed that the first time I watched the video..... 4 rnds that fast, tells me someone is EXTREMELY quick on the trigger or multiple people engaged him at the same time... kudos to them either way...

    My retired teacher wife would so agree with you. She would have parent-teacher conferences with disruptive [Middle school age] students' parents and she would hear over and over from them "I can't do a thing with him".

    I wonder if his mom has second thoughts (I know she does) after seeing the video or having it described to her in detail...

    I always looked at persons describing their loved ones as ďa good boyĒ or ďheíd never do thatĒ.

    I have a cousin who was raised similarly privileged as I (two stably employee parents, private school, etc.) is now in State Prison for one count of attempted murder and one count of murder.

    Had any of you asked me did I think heíd likely do something like that I would have laughed out loud, called him and told him what I had been asked.

    Yep. Clear out of the blue. And I mean OUT.OF.THE.BLUE.

    It was surreal when I got the phone call. And I think for a MOTHER itís difficult (for some) to shake all of the memories when the now monster was but an infant.

    I hope NONE OF YOU have to get such a phone call about one you love deeply having done something monstrous. It was odd (and still is) thinking back how we grew up and all the things we did. Even as an adult there were NO clues. No drug use; Hell, he didnít own a firearm!

    Though it has been awhile I still look back into his life - or what I knew of it - trying to piece together WTF went wrong.

    I have a friend who is a psychiatrist and she says that people sometimes ďsnapĒ.

    I still donít buy that but it may be true.

    The dude in this video is not psychologically whole. Iíd like to know more about his life. His pants sagging is one clue; maybe not much but itís still a data point.

    Stay safe everyone.

And on several occasions, after being informed that "of course it's unloaded", a live round has popped out when the action was opened. One old fella even pointed his WWII 1911 straight up and pulled the trigger to show me it was empty - you can guess the results. Had a young guy, after several warnings about muzzle control, tell me: "You f'ing cops think you own this f'ing range" - I explained that the public owned the range but I run it and you are banned for life. He left VERY angry but didn't get crazy. I can't remember what it's called but there is a mental condition that causes someone to resent authority. Maybe this was the case here?

    Gosh damn. I firmly believe that all range officers should always be armed for just such occasions. Man, the older I get the more I wanna stay away from public ranges.

    Yep. Itís hard to accept family members, especially your own children are capable of serious wrong doing. I donít get upset when people make statements that their child ďcould never do thatĒ, Iím positive they truly believe that. When faced with the video evidence she apparently took those posts down, which is surprising. People grieve in many different ways, some of them can be bizarre. Iíve given my share of death notices and you really never know what to expect. What a horrible situation for all involved. Iíll be keeping the families, especially the children in my thoughts and prayers.

    Fair assessment!
    I believe itís possible that when the shooter exited the store after the first volley/exchange, everyone assumed he had flown and was still running. I believe at that point those good folks instinctively went into the next step and let their guard down for an instant and when the shooter returned walking through the store straight to the pathway behind the counter to shoot that they didnít immediately recognize the threat, at which point they may have actually lowered, cleared or otherwise released their weapons and begun to either call for help or assess the damage. First instinct when the bad guy reappears and your pants are down is to hunker down behind cover. Yeah, I know I wasnít there but I have a good imagination.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    In my younger days I dated two red heads. They were both crazy. One in a really good way and the other in a really, really, bad way.
