I know everyone has heard about it, many times over. Shooter was 29 year old New York born citizen, with Afghan parents, Had a carry permit and security guard registration. A registered Democrat. Obvious background checks did no good, but that won't faze the anti-gun people.

Now we have to endure the media talking it to death 24/7 for at least a week, rehashing the same details a thousand times, with endless speculation. More uninformed diatribes against "assault rifles", "automatic" weapons, and exaggerated "clip" capacities. Won't matter that this was yet another Muslim follower acting out his beliefs. That culture will never mix with ours, but the liberals just can't see that.

The rifle is one aspect of the discussion some are having in an attempt to distract most people away from the more prime motives for this shooting. Others are focused upon the fundamental beliefs of the individual who caused the tragedy. The initial information is generally wrong in many ways but over time a clearer picture of the causal factors emerge. There will be those who will attempt to gain a political advantage of the situation, but that will only play large with their ideological bases and the others not of that mindset will see it for what it is - just a cheap attempt to gain supporters in a political season.
