Police and medics work the scene of a multiple shooting at Clackamas Town Ce...
PORTLAND, Ore. — The gunman who killed two people and himself in a shooting rampage at an Oregon mall was 22 years old and used a stolen rifle from someone he knew, authorities said Wednesday.

Jacob Tyler Roberts had armed himself with an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and had several fully loaded magazines when he arrived at a Portland mall on Tuesday, said Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts.

The sheriff said the rifle jammed during the 22-year-old's attack, but he managed to get it working again. He later shot himself. Authorities don't yet have a motive but don't believe he was targeting specific people. LINK:

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

The police should be the only ones with guns.

They can save you if something happens.

It only took "a minute and a half" for the first officer to get on scene.
That's pretty fast.

Two people dead.

Wait a minute...
But mall security was there, oh waitNinja

Gecko45 doesn't work in that mall.
Is it just me or has this story fallen off the front page since the stolen gun info came out? I don't watch news on TV so maybe my perspective is skewed a bit but it doesn't turn up on the mainstream news feeds that I do track.
The law? The law is a human institution...
QUICK! Pass a law against stealing guns! Pass a law about shooting a gun in public! Pass a law against shooting people! Pass a law about killing people!

Oh, wait...

And I guess the "no guns allowed" sign at the mall entrance was out for polishing that day, too...
