I remember when you went through that theater nightmare. Just heartbreaking. People just trying to go to the show....then their life is changed forever if they made it out

This stuff is starting to happen several times a week now.

I can relate -- the night of the San Bernadino shooting, when I was still living in New England, the owner of a unit I was trying to buy in a picture-perfect small town in So Cal texted me with live video captioned, "We're all over the network news -- look!"  Meaning "our" complex -- the police were swarming the condos across the street as that's where the shooters had lived!

Two weeks after I moved to my quaint small town here in FL, the Orlando shooting happened, less than an hour away.

Islamic terrorism, Leftist terrorism, it's everywhere now and likely to increase.  Think how many other nut jobs are teetering on the edge, all it takes is a tiny push from colluding media, hate-mongering politicians and celebrities, paid agitators.  The blood is on their hands.

Wow, soup! 😳

That story has been all over the news today. I just hope people don't politicize this event too much. This guy was plain looney tunes and he tried to mow down a bunch of people in cold blood. He died (Saturn) for his ideology (Sagittarius). And it sounds like he was armed to the teeth--this was CALCULATED.

Okay, so it was political. You're right. If a Trump supporter went out and tried to kill as many liberal politicians as he could, I'd definitely see it as a politically-driven crime. I'd think they filled their head with too much conservative talk radio!

It's not the kind of attention anyone wants for the town they live in.  Sorry Soup, this unwanted spotlight has befallen your little town, once again.

Mental illness is what caused this, in my opinion.  When someone takes an ideology, makes it an obsession and elevates it to the next level to kill people, it's mental illness.

The correlation of the anti-Trump political establishment, at every conceivable level by the MSM, social media, late night TV, art, music, the Tony Awards, etc., to UNDO Trump and anybody or thing standing in the way of achieving this agenda, is a collective mess affecting us all.  It's a war, I'm afraid.

I don't like his record and what his neighbor said about him. Sounds like he had anger problems, and he cracked.

This is very unfortunate. 🙁

Any of us here that knew him or knew of him are HIDING.....the media is still everywhere looking for any person willing to talk and surprisingly almost no one wants to say a word. You could see his facebook friends list start to go down by the minute (those of us that knew enough to immediately unfriend) because that thing was getting screen shots by the minute so any person could be interviewed. I watched as 12 of my Real Estate friends unfriended and blocked him FAST. The comments were horrifying and there were death threats and people screaming to hell and back. They are now attacking his wife and family. (and that is sad)

This is such a small town. I was born in St. Louis (this is a STL bedroom community) People live here, and drive into the city to work. I was raised here all my life....grade school through high school.

We like to brag because some really cool people came from this small town. Buddy Ebsen. (Jed Clampett) Lea Delaria (Orange is the New Black - Big Boo) I graduated from high school with her and knew her very well. (she is great...I mean just love that gal - she is a good good hearted gal and an amazing talent) Jimmy Conners - (tennis) grew up here. We have several people that went on to be newscasters..... we have some awesome judges, doctors...

BUT this is a freaking NIGHTMARE...and now there is a hashtag #Belleville....  like its where all lunatics originate from. I hate it.

If you've ever watched 'Gilmore Girls' this place is 'Stars Hollow' we have town meetings and there is some sort of parade or celebration on the town square (yes we have a town square haha) every other week. It's absolutely magical at Christmas and all the holidays really...... almost like a fairy land most of the time. 

As a child, then with my kids, and now with my grandbabies I am at the parade every year to watch Santa Claus come to town.

 Crime has increased over the years but this is Midwest small town living ..... and then this happens.

This election has torn the nation apart. Its ruined friendships and families. This was 10000000% political. He hated his Trump supporting neighbors....slashing their tires and was  constantly harassing them. He was a shit head....typical cantankerous asshole. And, a bully. But, no one expected him to go over the top and head out to try to kill Republican members of congress. I don't think anyone expected him to be a full on evil NUTBAG! A nice guy?  NO he was not. He was mean in the grocery store, mean to service people.....not a nice man at all.

We are horrified here. This batshit crazy nut does not represent us in any way. Its embarrassing. Now our town will be labeled and its not fair. But..... its true.

Something strange is in the water Yesterday.

4-old people were killed by a freight train last night , as they were returning home from an "Ice Cream Social". They live in Pana, but this happened near Nokomis. Both are small villages near my "neck of the woods".

We (American Legion post) was suppose to have an Ice Cream Social AFTER getting the casket flags folded and put back into storage. Since we didn't fly them yesterday (because of the thunderstorms) we also didn't have the ice cream social. We have rescheduled the Ice Cream Social sometime on the 4th July Weekend.

Anyway...... I just thought this was too close a coincidence.

It's just Pluto in Capricorn to me. Politics (Capricorn) and institutions (Capricorn) are bringing out people's shadows (Pluto).

I just read the killer had a hit list in his pocket, so this was a premeditated act.  The people on the list were the more conservative members of the Republican party, The Freedom Caucus.
