    Unless the person is doing his deeds out in the wilds alone, and unless he's taking out every victim, then he's going to get seen and ultimately caught. No doubt about it. The fact he's doing it in traffic suggests it won't be long.

    Hopefully enough "near" witnesses can divulge sufficient details to narrow the field. It would be classic, if the perp happens to own a "dark Mustang with stripes" and continues to drive the thing. Can't be too many of those around.

    Tough situation, getting fired upon while out and about from an unknown direction. Hard to gain cover if the source of fire is unknown.

    Unfortunately at this time they really don't even have a good description of the vehicle. Listening to the news yesterday on the drive home from work they described the car as a Chevy Caviler or Ford Mustang. Those are two very different cars. They also think a semi-auto rifle is being used as opposed to a handgun. This will be interesting to follow and I am gald I don't travel along that highway or have any need to in the near future.

    Well since it appears that the guy is using a handgun I don't know where you're getting the AWB debate in there.
    This guy ain't a "Sniper" that's a catchy term the media throws around to sell papers,he's just another Idiot that is taking out his aggression on innocent people,the fact that he isn't very "stealthy" will get him caught pretty quick

    The sheriff made sure to say the shooter was not a sniper because the term sniper implies shooting skill - that made me chuckle at first, but then wondered if that is going to make him say "oh yeah, watch this..."

    The vehicle has been a Cavalier, a mustang, a dark colored sedan, a dark colored sports car, a mustang with stripes, and a "dark car with a stripe on the side" - so I'm not sure what exactly to keep an eye out for! Suspect was described in one report as a "clean shaven white male in his 30s" - which is pretty vague as well.

    This is happening practically right in my back yard, so I'm a bit concerned. Maybe I can get a roof mounted machine gun to return fire? ;)

    This is a little too close for comfort, I do hope they catch him soon. I'll be interested to find out who/what he is.

    Long guns of any type were used in .04% of violent crime prior to the last AWB.

    Antis will use any and all mass shootings, "successful" (to mean deadly or injurious), or not; to resurrect the AWB.

    It's a perception/feel good thing. Has little to do with facts, types of weapons used, or any other logical reasoning.
    It could be worse.

    That article certinally dosn't give much info. If it IS him I hope he's put away for many, many moons.
