No, not Trump! Obama! Sandy Hook was back in 2012. Plus it appears the FBI does pretty much does its own thing to achieve political ends. It's a rogue agency.

The gun grabbers out in full force, as expected, calling for a government based solution, when the evidence indicates the government failed at several levels in this case. Check. The flawed logic of needing more intrusion by penalizing law abiding citizens escapes me.

The media, as usual, provides no depth on the root causes of the problem, but does use the event to promote ratings. They are actually part of the problem, as the shooters are often looking to "be somebody", and get their 15 minutes of fame.

One reporter mentioned many school shootings have the perp going online and "researching" what happened at Columbine. So, gotta believe law enforcement's path to search everyone's browser is on deck. Like the VAST MAJORITY of people who look at the Columbine event on the web are guilty of something, right?

It's pretty clear the kid is unbalanced. He'll be diagnosed with some form of mental illness, and I wouldn't be surprised if he had been treated with SSRIs, and had gone off them - if so, Big Pharma and the AMA will be scurrying to sweep that under the rug. Happens to be another root cause to many mass shootings.

Trump's got the right idea that mental health is an area to explore to prevent these kinds of things, but it's the third rail from a political perspective. The cure could very easily be far, far worse than the symptoms.

In other words, life can be risky. Unless you want draconian measures like you'd find in North Korea, there's a price to pay to live in a semi-free society.

Dan, how come Obama wasn't able to eliminate white supremacist hate groups?

Did he increase funding against these groups? He should have, right? He didn't make it a priority?

Why not?

Trump is an incompetent boob...Obama was/is a genius...the one real stable genius...a genius of the highest order...shouldn't he have been able to easily eliminate these white terrorists?

Serious questions, man.

It's hard to know if you're joking or being purposely obtuse, like you often are.

You're asking me why Obama didn't "eliminate" white supremacy in the US?

Jeez, I dunno. That's a very good question.

Well, you basically just stated that Trump's alleged lack of concern for white supremecists has led to this shooting...so I was just wondering how he compares to his predecessor, Obama, whom you hold in the highest regard.

I would have expected you to tell me Obama had WS on the brink of elimination, but Trump's "racist ways" have allowed them to return with a vengeance.

But we both know this isn't the case...WS has been around for countless centuries, no matter who the President was...

Your propaganda is no better or worse than the right's...yet you somehow always come off as so much more superior to them...that's what I find so comical year after year.

The FBI says that it investigated the threat that the shooter made on the internet, but was not able to identify the person after the threat was forwarded to them:

The FBI were warned 5 months ago about Cruz but were to busy investigating a duly elected President and his staff. Shameful
