Careful, dispassionate analysis will reveal that the rifles did it.

Borepatch correctly points out that the shooters’ races have not been mentioned, which means they’re not white. Don’t expect a discussion of confederate flags this time.

In context, I’m not betting on some guys named Mohammed. Maybe what this country needs is common-sense peaceful #BLM protest controls?

What? What? It’s for the children!

Either way, it’ll be the guns. You know, after the extensive analysis. Damned guns.

    I just finished blogging about this incident. Sad days in the (not so) United States of America. If you look at the video of the event it looks like the shooter may have had a little training. The media calling the shooter a “sniper” shows once again the collective knowledge of firearms use that the media has can be written in 12 point all caps on a finger nail.

    I know there are some who will want to tar and feather me but… The two black guys where were recently shot were not killed because of race or power mad cops, they were killed because the officers were idiots. Given what little I know about police training and budgets, with so much to be taught firearms training isn’t as high on the list as it should be. Watch the video of the copper who shoots Philando Castile and listen to the fear in his voice. Stop the video and look at the position of the trigger finger, it shouldn’t have been on the trigger. Do the same with the other video and look at the trigger finger. These were not the events of racism they were the result of fools with guns.

    Unfortunately, those two factors are not mutually exclusive. It’s entirely possible to be both a racist and a fool with a gun.

    It’s looking more and more like a lone nut armed with an SKS; some Army training (he’s a vet) accounts for the “sniper” stories:

    Huh. I wonder if we’ll ever hear about those others they arrested who were ‘not cooperating.’

    Also, pretty surprising numbers for a carpenter with an SKS who was only targeting cops.

    As someone reminded me on Facebook, Oswald only had a crappy Carcano.

    I’ve been carefully watching my killer-assault-rifle-of-mass-destruction ever since I bought it. So far, it hasn’t done a damn thing on its own. Strange. It must be defective.
