Please don't prejudge soldiers coming home. Soldiers are no different than anyone else, honestly they are less likely to be involved in gun related crime than anyone else. Yes some do come home with mental issues and most of them seek help and most are fine. I am a veteran and have many many friends all over America. Alot of them have mental issues but they are not violent.

I seriously doubt anybody is pre judging any Vets,Some return home without too much emotional baggage,while others come home with a lot of guilt thinking about all their buddies that weren't so lucky.

With that I think we can rule out the solider thing....love triangle thing....or other things. This guy just sounds like a sick puppy thing. With the size of our population...we can just expect some of these. It is sad, but just another fact of life. Look at the sicko from Norway.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.

"All these" shootings? A far greater number happen in Chicago on an average day, yet we hear practically nothing of those.
I'm kind of getting tired of having to hear news reports of all these shootings.
Sensationalist news sells. Though, the daily Chicago deaths hardly merit a raised eyebrow anymore, let alone more than a snippet on the 4th page of the newspaper's metro section.
I'd really, really like to know why we're seeing so many of these all of a sudden.
It's also an election year, which may be a factor.
Statistically, I'll bet that when 2012 numbers come out it'll be little more than a blip, and likely show no trending.

Anything to support this assertion? Because I'm not buying it. How big of a brush are you holding?

Local paper says that a female co-worker regarded him as weird and giving threatening looks. You can buy semi-auto rifles in NJ with a firearm owners ID card, which requires a FBI check and mental health records check to get. Purchase of handguns requires local police chief approval and another background check. Apparently, this guy just never triggered any alarms. There are already calls for stricter "gun controls" in NJ. Other than having each applicant for a permit interviewed by a shrink (and most of the shrinks I've known are wackier than the average person), I don't know how these could be prevented. It's unrealistic to think that if any of the kids in the store or the manager had been armed, they could have prevented this. Maybe if they'd locked the doors while working overnight. We're going to see "2016" tonight. If I could carry in NJ (as I can in 37 other states), I would.
