This is really quite incredible.
1. Secretary of State has nothing what-the-fuck-so-ever to do with the ATF.
2. First you scream Obama is going to take away your guns, and now you're mad that he didn't.

Target audience does not think. All they will hear is a/ it's not the GOP's fault and b/ it is Hillary's fault. Which they already believe about everything anyway, so it's all good.

Are mass shootings a white man's problem?

Quote
This graph plots the proportion of the 88 mass shooters in census-based racial groups against each group's proportion in the US population. The dotted line represents equality between the two proportions. Groups falling above or below the line have committed mass shootings above or below the rate expected given their representation in the population. Generally speaking, groups defined by race have committed these outrages at approximately the same rate, given their relative size.

Mass shooting are also a male problem.  Meaning it's men who go out and shoot a lot of people.

Change the definition of mass shootings to, say, 8.  What does it look like then?

Why is there no motive so far? It's like the original Halloween film, where the killer was just pure evil. Which shouldn't happen in real life, but here we are. What do you do about people who just kill randomly?

random violence is a thing.  fortunately it's rare.  unfortunately it still happens and there's not much you can do about it.

guapo says he was just a psychopath who did it for the thrill and/or to outdo other mass shooters.  his father was a bank robber and con artist who was profiled as a psychopath.  maybe that can be passed on to children?  ...  if this is right, then there's no sensible motive to decipher here.  he wasn't angry or bitter or whatever.  didn't have an ideological bent.  he just never saw people as more than noisy objects, and in his sick mind going out as the biggest mass shooter ever seemed like a cool thing to do.

he was planning on getting away with the shooting, wasn't he?  makes motive a lot more sinister

i think that would fit psychopath better, since they are self-interested

Actual footage of the entire shooting.

No doubt there were two different weapons firing.  You can hear them, and it ain't no echoes.

The second gun sounds strange, too. Like rapid cracks of a whip. And even more weird, the second gunman stops shooting when the camera person leaves.  Hmmm....

You know what else is weird? I can't see any muzzle flash on the 32nd floor. But the videos showing the second gunman around the 4th floor show it clear and bright. Odd.

I hear one shooter.

Those whipcrack sounds are rounds passing close, not the sound of firing. When a rifle is fired and you're downrange, the first sound you'll hear is the bullet passing (whip crack), then a moment later you hear the gunshot. If you're really quick witted, you can use the time gap to estimate range.
