The suspect is a former detective with the Sheriff’s office, resigning last year after being charged with sexual assault of a child and family violence.

So he used to be a good guy with a gun and most likely bought his gun legally.

Things are pretty bad when you're in the middle of one mass shooting article and have to suddenly switch gears as the next one comes out.

I heard between 25% and 100% of good guy gun owners in Texas have stopped a bad guy. They don’t even need police there anymore, so many good guys with guns keeping the peace.

Sexually assaulting a child and comitting family violence makes him a good guy? wow.

That’s a very dishonest statement. But that’s how gun apologists tend to operate, misinformation and poor assumptions.

Texas wants to end all gun laws. Just a free for all.

This can’t be accurate with all the good guns with guns in Texas.

I think the 'good guy with a gun' theory does have some merit. It depends on how we define 'good' guy. I would say a good guy (or girl) is one with enough training and experience in live fire situations, for example combat or simulated, to neutralise the threat and hopefully secure the scene.

If someone carrying a weapon who doesn't have the confidence, experience or training finds themselves in such a situation, they're probably better off taking cover or running away.

Hardly.

It was so hard for the media that they had no choice but to report on it in full.

In US, 'have money can buy more guns', 'have guns can kill more people'.

Whither this once supposedly greatest nation on earth?

Signing pieces of paper? What do you mean?

1.5 per day during the Biden administration. gonna do something about that?

Hopefully, whether it's a far right or a centre right incumbent in the White House, the gun laws have to change.

Gundamentally.

The suspect is a former detective with the Sheriff’s office, resigning last year after being charged with sexual assault of a child and family violence.

So he used to be a good guy with a gun and most likely bought his gun legally.

And he murdered two Hispanic women and a Black man. Since when do any of those type of lives matter in the Whitebread Fake Cowboy State?

this one was hard for the media.

Hardly.

Am I going to do something about it? What actions do you think that I, someone who doesn't support Biden, should take (from Japan) to prevent mass shootings?

Why were you unconcerned with the 610 mass shootings that happened under Trump last year, incidentally? What were you doing about them?

I hope they catch this sick animal. The guy should be locked up forever and never see daylight again, but I doubt he’ll be taken alive which in this case is just as good.
