  • Mall Shooting In Nebraska

    Just read about this:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7129906.stm

    A gunman has opened fire in a shopping centre in the US state of Nebraska, killing eight people before fatally shooting himself, police say.

    A further five people were wounded - two critically - in the shooting at the Westroads Mall in Omaha.
    Yikes.

    Sounds like what we had happen here in Tacoma a few years back.
    If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

      Why couldn't the miserable sod have just offed himself instead of impacting so many families, and among the holidays no less?

      God bless those families! May He give them peace and comfort!

        Agreed. Terribly sad! Nothing to do but to offer up some prayers on their behalf.

          I am just sickened by self-absorbed idiots who want to take innocent lives in their insane quest for fame or revenge. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

            aparently , he was armed with a SKS fully auto rifle. WTF was he doing with a gun like that? Why didnt Bush extend the moritorium banning these types of guns from being sold, instead of just letting it expire...!!!

            God help those poor poor families, i will pray for them tonight.

              Yea, but "guns don't kill people; people kill people"
              or should that be "people with guns kill people"?

                  The SKS isn't full-auto capable unless you illegally modify it, Since he obviously didn't care about the laws, I seriously doubt a ban would have stopped him.

                  And according to this, He stole it:
                  The woman Hawkins was staying with said she thinks he stole the weapon from his stepfather.

                  Outside of Hawkins' mother's home, Omaha police and a crew from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were serving a search warrant in La Vista just before 10 p.m. It is believed the gun Hawkins used was stolen from the home. Agents searched trash cans and entered the split-level home through the basement. A K9 dog was also used.

                      Its a cheap and popular hunting/target shooting rifle, Those are perfectly legitimate uses for it.

                      If his stepdad didn't have the rifle, He could have gotten a gun any number of legal and illegal ways, Bought one from a drug dealer or gang member for example.

                      As to the dead, Yeah, Sucks that nine people where killed but there are 6 billion people on earth, More people are probably killed in automotive accidents every hour.

                              I hate how they show us pictures of the killer and tell us about their life. We get tons of info about them and speculation about why they acted the way they did.

                              I DON'T F**KING CARE

                              That's what the pathetic POS wants the media to do. They want people to know who they are. Some troubled douchebag later on might decide to do the same thing because of what he sees following these shootings.

                              I remember in Manhunter (original Red Dragon, starring Wiliam Petersen) they made up some stuff about the killer they were looking for. They said things like he might be a homosexual, impotent, and something about sex with his mother IIRC. Why not do something to discourage these scumbags instead of turning them into "heroes" for another killer to look up to?
