The shooter in Indianapolis, Brandon Hole, turns out to be a white guy, and suicidal as well as homicidal. (Black mass shootings, of which there are many, have a lower death rate, because the shooters are trying to get away with murder.)
And speaking of getting away with murder, the custom of letting people judged insane get away with murder is one that needs to be abolished.
I tweeted this:
"Mental illness was blindingly clear in the cases of Seung-Hui Cho... and a dozen other mass shootings in the past few decades.— VDARE (@vdare) April 16, 2021
But in every instance, Democrats' response was: Let's ban high-capacity magazines! Let's limit private gun sales!"https://t.co/UW0vu7QtHK pic.twitter.com/RSHDZWZJe6
The second is the whole concept of "not guilty by reason of insanity" which means that maniacs who actually kill people can't be executed, or even sent to real prisons. (Gomez, below, is in a mental hospital. His victim is still dead.)https://t.co/ZGJk2HjgfH— VDARE (@vdare) April 16, 2021
Since this murder was committed with a rifle, I Tweeted
And if "gun control" is your solution to crimes like this this, remember it's already illegal for crazy people to have rifles...which are almost never used in crimes.
I linked to a post I made titled Rifle Murders Are So Rare, Florida Radiologist Had Only Ever Seen One Previous Case in which I noted an Atlantic article by Florida Radiologist Heather Sher, who had seen thousands of Florida gunshot wounds before the Parkland shooting, but had only seen one previous case of someone shot by a rifle.
