Same here if I'm briefly flicking past but once you really think about it it can kinda hit you.

Same here. Shootings usually don't affect me in any way.

Fucking hell.

Will be interesting to see who it is and why they've done it. That page says it's unlikely anyone from outside of the facility would have gotten in, so I guess someone's just lost it and gone on a mad one.

The Navy Yard is a military base. You don't get anywhere even near that without a military ID and and a DoD sticker on your car when you go through the gate (a gate with armed guards)

So the chances of this being someone from the outside is pretty slim. Also adding the fact that he apparently had a rifle with him too... I'd be willing to bet this guys was military stationed on the base that stole the weapons from the armory.

And to clarify, the ONLY people allowed to have weapons on a military base are Military Police. That's it. Everything else is locked up in a vault in the bases armory.

It's just a shitty day all-round. First there were a few pedestrians that got shot in Time Square in New York City during a police chase......now this?

****ing hell. This has just become so commonplace that I just accept it now. Nothing will ever be done about, and I don't even know if anything can be done. It's becoming an inevitable part of society, but then again, senseless violence always has been a part of humanity.

No, they're stupid suburban kids who think they're above the rest of the population. People died. People got shot. And they're passing it off.

Don't make this thread a debate over the commonplace of shootings or about gun control. This thread needs to be about updates of the shootings and it's victims. Let's keep it there. Some of us are here because we might give a shit.

Well this is bad. Not trying to sound insensitive, but did this sort of thing always happen this regularly in the US? Serious question, given the recent shit that's gone on. I may unintentionally be unwormcanning.



You stop it. Seriously. See my above post.

i don't think they believe they're above the rest. in fact they probably feel constantly awkward ( <=> stupid suburban kid) that they can't empathize with this (n+1)th shooting. it's not their fault they're isolated from violence, poverty, etc (cause this extends beyond the particular topic of the thread). it speaks a lot about our culture really, which is why i think it's worthy. if you disagree that's too bad cause i gotta go to school

Fair enough actually. Post edited to reflect your point.

You lot bitching between yourselves should just fuck off


1559: ABC say they have two sources saying that the gunman is dead at the scene - he is reported to be a 50-year-old Navy employee - whose "employment status was recently changed". They have no confirmation of a second shooter.
#33
Well the other issue is, as they've said, that it's reported so often that to the outside viewer it just becomes "another shooting"

However it's always tragic once you actually pay it some thought.

Well one of them is from Manchester (no violence or poverty there) and another other outside Aberdeen, so they're not 'sub-urban'.

People using and shooting guns, not just guns.
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

That is terrible. I wonder if it was a vet who just couldn't deal with stuff anymore. A couple of my vet friends get really antsy or worse from fireworks.

Maybe this will start a conversation on taking care of our veterans' mental health. As ****ed as our politicians are, surely everyone can get behind that. We can't control random crazies but soldiers with mental problems should be given help after all they've done.

My post was a cutting commentary on media over-saturation and sensationalism leading to observer apathy. It was totally justified and relevant.

They're looking for two other gunmen now, one confirmed dead

One police officer shot in legs, being treated now. Two other women injured. "Multiple victims deceased"

That's my bet too. Like I said before, you can't even get close to a base without a military ID and proper security clearance. That pretty much rules out this being someone who wasn't military or a DoD contractor on base. Reminds me of the Fort Hood shooting.
