Yeah, the other way this shooting blows apart the "good guy with a gun" nonsense is the timeframe. 14 people shot in one minute before the cops could respond. Even with a good guy there, the bad guy always gets the first move.

and.. How do the Police determine who is a good guy with a gun from a bad guy with a gun?
With one or more active shooters the police might shoot first then try to work out who was what.

On the other hand, the bad guy has no trouble identifying the good guy with a gun, so he can shoot him first.

Preliminary coroner's report says the Gilroy shooter died of a self inflicted gun shot.

Information from the Gilroy PD Facebook page won't paste through.

I read a meme on Facebook about Gilroy that said the place was crawling with cops and they had control of the scene in 60 seconds ... and yet something like 18 people were shot. Is that true?

Same meme said it’s already out of the news cycle.

It’s horrifying how routine this has become in the United States. The last mass shooting in the UK was in June 2010—more than 9 years ago—when 12 people were killed. In the developed world, this is a uniquely American problem.

I am hearing 18 "casualties" with a semi-automatic weapon, some fatalities. Looks like it may have been contained to a Walmart next to the huge mall there.

This could be fog of war. I've seen stuff on the Twitter that two gunmen were changing clothes in the Walmart. UNVERIFIED.

At least 22 killed, including four children. Dozens injured and 3 suspects captured. Tragic day in El Paso.

The Walmart in Southaven, MS is still closed after a shooting there the other day.

In the article there is a photo of the shooters in the Walmart. They were wearing hearing protection. :roll:

The shooters are white. Lots of Thoughts and Prayers are coming.

Where were the good guys with guns who would have stopped the mayhem?

I think there was one shooter with two different camera angles. I can't tell if he's white or Hispanic. No doubt heavy.com will have all of the info on this guy within the next two hours. MSNBC is reporting he is 21 years old.

Police say one person in custody and a second person detained.

One police source claims 18 people were killed. A hospital reports it is treating 11 victims, most in critical condition.

There is a name circulating on Twitter and various internet sites. Someone posted a pic of a guy in the back of a police cruiser who looks similar to the pics in the article linked above. I'm not going to post any name here right now. The alleged person who is the alleged shooter seems to be white and a fan of you-know-who. But I can't verify any of this right now.
