    It is reported on Fox News, but not on CNN. I did not find it on any other Main Stream News outlet. . . small but telling example how journalism is dead. . . the Fourth Estate no longer serves the Republic; today's journalists are nothing but shills for political movements (left and right). . . , when citizens can no longer rely on a free and independent (free from bias) press, our system of government breaks down. We become easy pickings for hustlers, scoundrels and demagogues.

    On Fox news, but I couldn't find it in search, had to go to US News.

    There's a chance the perps knew the victims, which leads one to wonder "What's the back story?"

    But, yeah... Nobody "needs" an AR-15, until they NEED one.

    Yup, curious about the potential backstory, but the AR style rifle has done a lot of good for defense of self and others. The other recent, very public example is the Texas church shooting, which the criminal shooter was stopped by a good guy with his own AR! There are lots of other examples.

    If that's true, only one of the perps knows the vics now.

    The AR15 has absolutely no legitimate purpose. Until it does.
