Fox news said, this wacko had friends or family that had em' and he had access to the fire arms.
He didn't "have access" to guns thanks to friends & family, he legally purchased and owned the guns himself. Saying only he had "access" is a disingenuous way of avoiding the issue that this man had a history of mental illness, that the police were called to the family residence several times, and the parents were dismissive of his issues. If that sounds familiar it's because that exact description applies to the Parkland school shooter all over again.

So somebody with a history of mental illness and social issues, described by his own family as having "mental health issues", legally buys guns in Maryland apparently passing all of the checks & requirements, takes them with him to a football video game tournament in Florida, proceeds to kill two people & injuring a dozen others before killing himself as a reaction to losing a round of the football video game, and the conclusion is that it was games that were the cause?! :facepalm:

I got ya bro! I believe gun sales folk need to do back ground and mental illness checks on suspected purchasers at said stores. Somehow this punk slipped through the cracks, but im standing firm on the Doom game causing odd balls to act out their frustrations. Again, the columbine shootings were set up like the game doom. Most of those shootings are from punks that play those games. Hell the punk that shot up the movie theatre dressed up as psyco joker, was high on something and did the unspeakable. One other issue is most of these punks are on drugs, meth, and crack. There has got to be another way to keep this violence from happening? I noticed at Barns & Nobel in a nice strip mall there is heavy security, I chatted with an off duty police officer making extra income, told me that this store gets crowded with wild young punks who have no where to go, and who steal, vandalize and cause trouble. He said he never gets any rest, and parents drop off their kids here because they are cheap and lazy to have some one watch em! That maden football bldg., should have had a metal detector, like all bldgs. where said punks hang out.

This was played at the Jacksonville game bar, I need to know what other games were played there, I did see that it was the madden game tournament he was playing, and the spoiled brat did meet a foot ball hero, there, but I don't believe that they only play foot ball at that game bar. So the point im making is, where the teens play and gather, maybe some security is needed, and they need to be on camera, and a metal detector is needed. Lets be safe out there!
