    I think the incidents are just more readily distributed to the public thanks to the internet.

    A lot like the apparent increase in environmental disasters such as tsunamis and earthquakes. They have always been occurring with similar frequency, itís just that 50 years ago the only news people received about then incidents was a half page write up in some news paper 3 months after it occurred.

    These stories do reaffirm my commitment to stay armed at ALL times though.

    Sad and tragic for the families and community, it rather dispels the "It could never happen here." mentality. I bet company policy prohibits this kind of stuff.

    Sad for the victims families. Silent prayer sent up wards.

    The thing about the "no guns at work" policy.

    The company would rather have something like this happen, than for one of their employees to use a firearm in SD, while on the clock,thus keeping them out of the so-called liability aspect of the whole matter.
    Personally, I think this makes them look more guilty/liable, both criminally, and civilly, for not keeping their place of business safe for its employees.

    I don't know if the lumber yard was posted "no guns", but if it was, I'd sue them in civil court for depriving me of my right to defend myself, and they not having armed security to perform that service. Might not go anywhere, but it would get the message across!

    There are a lot more of these multiple shootings lately.
    Why don't the dirtbags just plug themselves and save society a lot of time and money.

    I read about it online and it said he used a shotgun.

    However when our local news ran the story, there was a big ol' pic of a handgun in the background. IMO, that is deceptive and does not help support public opinion.

    +1 The answer to the liability issue is simple: make their no weapons policy a greater liability.

    WRT the shooting, the articles I have seen say that this was planned revenge against specific targets, though they don't say what the revenge was about. It wasn't a random or mass shooting.

    That is quite common since most so-called news media consider handguns the epitome of evil, I have even seen “news” stories where someone was killed with a knife and yet they had a picture of a handgun in the background.

    "Owens said it took 30 minutes from the time law enforcement received a 911 call about the shootings to when they found Davis' body. People in the community helped identified the shooter."

    Who cares how long it took to get to the BG! How about how long it took to get to the people who really needed the help? I am not cop bashing here but they can only do so much. Hard to stop a guy with a shotgun when there are only 2X4s laying around. Now if there might have been someone packing heat, it have been a different story.

    This was an Active Shooter, distinguishable from a Criminal Entrepreneur business activity, incident because he wanted to make a statement about the institution involved and specific individuals in it. If he was just a common Bad Guy, the shotgun would have been used to facilitate getting the money (or sexual gratification) and then leaving.

    Wow that really annoys me. I would call the station and complain if I saw that.

    I considered calling just seeing the handgun, but was afraid it would do more harm than good.
