Motive: Was the Thousand Oaks Gunman a Gun Control Advocate?
We're not mentioning the Thousand Oaks gunman's name. Nor showing his mugshot. Also, no criticism of a hysterical and grieving mother who unfortunately had a reporter shove a camera in her face, and who Twitter decided to feature prominently. You can find all that elsewhere on social media.
I only want to know why this happened. While authorities haven't given a motive, the alleged gunman had an eyebrow-raising final Facebook post.
Authorities have identified a Facebook post believed to have been made by the shooter around the time of the attack, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the ongoing investigation.
In it, the writer says: "I hope people call me insane... (laughing emojis).. wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah.. I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers'.. or 'keep you in my thoughts'... every time... and wonder why these keep happening..."
When CNN read the post to a friend of [Shooter], who did not want to be publicly identified, the friend said, "That does not sound like [Shooter] to me at all. I don't know what was going through his head when he wrote this. It must have been terrible."
We'll soon find out if pushing gun control was, in fact, a motive. Or if it was PTSD. Or if the government failed like it did in Broward County (see Watch What the Broward School Board Does to Survivor Who Questions Them and Student Exposed Broward County School Waste. Now He’s Being Kicked Out.).
We'll also see what the Democrat-controlled House does in January. With a president who has shown some squishiness on guns.
What do you think will happen?
