Default I'm baffled

How does a shooter with a semi-auto rifle fire off over 50 rounds at a bunch of people on a baseball field and not kill anyone??? Thankfully they didn't but it does baffle me

I thought the same thing when I heard that on the news.

I'd say ..... Spray and pray vs point and shoot or aiming

Probably never learned how. Sounds like the guard detail were some studs though. I read one of the officials was using his belt as a tourniquet on a staffer.

Our country is in a sad state.

Just wondering why they have a baseball team.


Hope he is tried for a hate crime. Sounds like when he asked if they are Republican or Democrats, then at that point they were shot for being Republican.

Said he was pew pew pewing behind the backstop fence. Maybe he was hitting the fence. Glad those 2 guards were there or it would most likely be a much worse story. Freaking idiot. People are crazy.

How does one just walk into a park with a rifle (In city with toughest gun laws in Nation)and ask are these Republicans and begin shooting. Was he wearing a trench coat?? In a separate shooting today a UPS employee killed 2 and wounded one in a UPS warehouse in SF

A democratic sympathizer from a state with strict gun laws takes a weapon to another state with tough gun laws and shoots people. Watching different networks it's amazing to listen to the different narratives. Some networks you'd think are troubled they have to talk about this as opposed to the Russian collusion. MSNBC actually led with new info on the trump case. If this was a tea party member mainstream would show trump/shooter connection.

Exactly why I have become mostly ignorant when it comes to news events of late. I'm sick of being lied to, sick of not knowing if the story is even real, etc. I catch a few blips of some local stuff on FB, and that's about it. Haven't read a news paper in over 10 years.
Reporters are awful these days. I saw on FB last evening, a local news channel was on scene of a fatal wreck a few miles down the road from our house. She sounded like a complete idiot, and was filming the car, and family and friends standing around grieving. Absolutely no sense in that.

And I have seen them walk up to a grieving family and ask "so how are you feeling"?. I've wanted to walk over and punch them for being idiots
