20 people reportedly hurt in active shooting in Texas; suspect taken into custody
There is a precedent for a moving active shooter with Asshole Elliot Rodger in Isla Vista back in 2014. Or maybe this are two meth heads just losing their crap and going Mad Max on people.
We should be inundated with fake and erroneous info for the next 24-48. If no “Assault Rifle” was used or the doers are the wrong group, the story should die by then also.
And don’t forget, while we still keep playing the same dumb political games of not naming the shooters and excoriate them in the media but blaming the NRA and gun owners, the next shooter(s) is encouraged to continue prepping his attack.
Update: Shooter is dead. He hijacked a mail truck.
