A mass shooting, with the intention of killing multiple persons, is not a domestic dispute. It is not an armed robbery. It is not a stolen car. It is not a rape. It is not vandalism. It is not a kidnapping. And it is no place for an amateur marksman.
A mass shooting, with the intention of killing multiple persons, is a sudden and unexpected battle of war-like proportions, with all the symptoms and consequences of a battle in war, but without the pretense of it. There is simply the sudden and unexpected battle, the chaos, the children, women, and men, and the death and carnage in the wake.
