blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: That Was Insane Yesterday

That Was Insane Yesterday


And there were hardly any details available because it happened on Christmas Day when newsrooms were vacant. 

The twist today is that the shooter was, they say, dressed up as Santa. I'm wondering how much of that is shock value. 

Edit: Best I can tell, Channel 8 was the first to name names. Fox 4 obviously knew who the gunman was in time for the 5:00 pm broadcast (they showed his house), but didn't name him for some reason.

Holidays always a bad time for major violence. Stress seems to increase assault-murder-suicide-robbery stats.

If bill Clinton had outlawed guns these people would still be alive.

I feel confident president Obama will get the job done.

When Obammy outlaws guns, only the Mexican drug cartels will have guns supplied to them by Obammy.

11:37 Are you kidding me? Mexico outlawed guns, look whats going on there. If that guy had tried that in this County one of the victims may have made it to their small arsenal and it wouldn't have been a suicide.
If guns were outlawed only the bad guys would have them anyway!
You are dumb!

11:37 Drugs are outlawed, yet our government poisons us with food and the FDA.

I'm with you 11:37.
Haven't we had enough gun violence?
The common sense thing to do would be to get the guns out of all the rednecks hands.
These people would still be alive.

I wish I was smart enough to follow some of the posters here. Did I miss something? Were the folks that were killed mexican? How did Obama get involved in the situation? Were the guns from mexico? Did the Federal Govt issue the weapons used in this crime to santa claus. Where do you folks get this information from and how can you folks jump to such a conclusion with so little information? Seems to me, based on what I have heard on the news, a family memeber showed up at an apartment and killed 6 other family members and then killed himself. How can Obama, the mexicans, the gun store, or the businesses that sold the christmas presents be responsible for this?

9:29,
It's simple. IF GUNS WERE OUTLAWED THIS FAMILY WOULD BE LIVING. I'll slow down for you idiot conservatives. The family wouldn't be DEAD if the gunman didn't have a gun. Not hard to understand.
Rage and Barry agree with me.
Geez. If they would have just called 911 the police could have came and saved them. Get it now?

The Santa suit was probably borrowed from the Salvation Army bell ringers, so don't forget to blame them, too. If the killer really wanted to kill the rest of the family and didn't have a gun, he would have used a knife or baseball bat. He may have even drowned them. So let's not stop at outlawing guns! Lets also outlaw knives, baseball bats, water, and Santa suits. If they had called 911, the police may have been able to help them, unless they lived in Runaway Bay.

Hey 9:29 how would you like to live in country where only the bad people had access to guns? how would you defend yourself? How fast do you think 911 could get to you? Do you get it now? Guns don't kill people do.

9:53, Hey dipshit. They did call 911 and time did not stand still while the police were on their way.

People will always get a gun when they want one...law or no law. And, I don't agree an ex husband is a family member.

So now we know. The six people killed was a tragedy. It was an Iranian doing what they do. They will not accept divorce and the family should have known what he would do. Hell, an Iranian father killed his two daughters several years ago because they were dating American boys. Arabs are hetherns!
This makes me sick to my stomach!

Yes, let's outlaw guns. Because when you outlaw something and make it illegal to possess, it never appears again. It worked for marijuana, felons having firearms,etc. You never hear of any of that happening!

I crossed that line and nobody caught me...hehehehe.

Were Drugs or Alcohol involved?

To the folks who believe the police are there to stop/prevent violence--even the police will admit that their function 90%+ of the time is to investigate the incident AFTER it occurs, not prevent it.

Therefore--your personal protection/prevention? Your own RESPONSIBILITY! (A word that an increasing percentage of our population has no clue about.)

Grapevine also was the scene of one of Texas' worst mass-casualty accidents -- Flight 191 --

If someone breaks into my house I'll take my chance with my gun the one that broke in can call 911 and we will see who lives to tell the story of what happened. How long were the people dead before the cops (911) got there?

9:53 you aren't very bright are you.

Someone did call 911. It was too late.

....because NOBODY can get their hands on something once it's been outlawed. Hey, pass me that doob, wouldja?
