    In 2017 - Terrorists kill for a reason other than themselves.

    This mental nut job was a mass murderer. The F.B.I. definition of Terrorism specifies that the perpetrator must be pursuing a political objective.


    The term Terrorist is used very loosely, need to clarify to study it. One universal tenet is that it is pejorative.
    • it is politically inspired
    • it involves violence or the threat of violence
    • it aims to send a message rather than defeat an enemy
    • the act and the victim have symbolic significance
    • the act is carried out by “substate groups” rather than state actors
    • the victims of the violence are distinct from the audience for which the terrorist’s message is intended
    • and the act deliberately targets civilians.

    While I don't disagree, shooting folks from 300+ yards ain't exactly wanting to "see them die".

    Well there you go hoping that this can be looked at logically w/ presented facts...
    Good luck w/ that.

    In this day and age where everybody politicizes everything instantly w/ 126 characters at a time - it appears that they have no time nor do they care for logic or facts... It's all about promoting themselves... :doh

    When you use certain ammo, I think there is a question in that position. I'd suggest that shooting from 300 yards, elevated and protected from immediate response to your actions is a conflicting aspect. Using a pellet gun from that range I'd agree with you.

    And at night. Not to mention the amount of smoke in the room. He wasn't holding on people and pulling the trigger to see them fall. He was blindly spraying around a defined cattle pen. (Why people are willing to go into cattle pens still bewilders me and I felt that way long before modern terrorism)

    This guy is text book sociopath. The fact his father was a confirmed sociopath really doesn't make this a stretch.

    He wanted fame and aww. And our media and the liberals will give him exactly what he wanted because he gave them exactly what they wanted.

    Because most of us can't afford to have a musician/band come to our house and play a private show in our living room?
    Life is full of risks. Participating in an event with thousands of others is a very low one.

    I've never been to a concert that sounded better than the cassette/cd/recorded medium. Where I was more comfortable than in my home or that of a friend enjoying better spirits and food at much lower cost.
