Ali Aliwi Al-Issa, the suspect’s 34-year-old brother, told The Daily Beast that his brother was mentally ill, disturbed, and paranoid.

One livestream is here, for now:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikujTMetrUk
Looked like at least one officer had a suppressor on his rifle (not the shooter).

Link won't let me see anything but the headline.  Any good quotes from it?

Also, I can never play the stupid Fox News live video links, but they have a video "live" link to the senate right this minute "discussing" new gun legislation. I'd better  call the LGS about the MK116 on their wall. I was gonna get it anyway. Better beat the panic.

Early rumors after Georgia and Colorado...

Dems will push both the "background check" and AWB as priority legislation.  Some Reps may cave on either or both of these.
Dems are drafting language, either as a separate bill or an amendment to the background check bill, to create a federally mandated waiting period.  It will purport to give sufficient time for a complete background check.
Some of the usual suspects are throwing around ideas like "psychological evaluations" as a part of the background check, removing the grandfather clause in the AWB, gun registration, etc
No, I'm not mtnbkr.  ;)

The suspect “very anti-social” and paranoid, his brother told the news outlet, noting that he would often remark that he was “being chased, someone is behind him, someone is looking for him.”

“When he was having lunch with my sister in a restaurant, he said, ‘People are in the parking lot, they are looking for me.’ She went out, and there was no one. We didn’t know what was going on in his head,” Al-Issa said.

Other than the above, mostly just dem politicians calling for an end to guns.

That's rough.  Ten folks went to the grocery store on an idle Tuesday and ended up dead because of some nut job.  Sad.  =(

Politician responses are entirely routine and expected.

Right on cue ...

https://www.theblaze.com/news/democrats-boulder-massacre-gun-control-agenda

Quote
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), one of the staunchest gun control advocates in Congress, said America must use the Boulder atrocity to take its stand against gun violence.
...
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), meanwhile, promised that lawmakers would advance gun control measures in the wake of the Boulder massacre.
...
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), lamenting the latest mass tragedy, said gun reform is the only adequate response.
...
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said:

"For the second time in a week, our nation is being confronted by the epidemic of gun violence. Too many families in too many places are being forced to endure this unfathomable pain and anguish. Action is needed now to prevent this scourge from continuing to ravage our communities."

"We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics."
                            - Joe Biden

"But even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did."

The NYT is reporting that Mr. Issa was born in Syria in 1999 and has lived most of his life in the US.  His interests include wrestling and kickboxing and has studied computer engineering at a local university.

Has Schiff started an investigation into Russian involvement and started impeachment proceedings yet?

Whoops, wrong president on the latter.

I find it odd that we suddenly get 2 "white supremist"*/domestic terrorist mass shootings just as the democraps are pushing draconian gun control measures.
Not so long ago I was unwilling to accept the possibility that our political class possessed enough evil to be capable of mass murder to forward their agenda. These days not so much.

Had that been Ivanka Trump saying "probably a Muslim" during Trump's admin, we'd be looking at impeachment #3.

Actually saying it doesn't matter since the MSM knows 100% for certain what either one of the Trumps would have been thinking

And they pull this BS back out for good measure.

Journo and NBC/MSNBC political analyst knows ‘it’s easier to buy a gun than to register to vote’ in Georgia because ‘activists’ say so

I find it interesting that both the Atlanta and Boulder shooters were just 21 years old. I wonder if there is any significance to that.

I have no problem with people registering to vote on the day of election. Let's make it easy to verify a person's eligibility to vote the same as a instant gun background check and let them vote. Resident..check, Citizen... check, not prohibited from voting due to prior felon status (if applicable).... check.  Here you go sir/maam/it, have a nice vote.

Someone brought up the fact he's Syrian and what did Biden just do in Syria? Yes correlation does not equal causation but it needs to be looked into IMHO

I was listening to Crowder.  He said the statistics saying it is mostly white people doing mass shootings classify Middle Eastern people and North African Muslims as white, but they do not include gang shootings.  I never looked at those statistics very well.

Well lets see, four people were shot dead in Chicago last weekend... which isn't atypical.  Not too much in the national news about that.
