Three people in custody, not really a lone shooter wacko.

The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded. Charles-Louis de Secondat (1689-1755) Baron de Montesquieu

In America, freedom and justice have always come from the ballot box, the jury box, and when that fails, the cartridge box.

Yeah the media really jumps on these now...Even though it's a common day occurrence in St. Louis which had 1200 shootings from January - August 2012and is the 4th worst city in the US for number of deaths per 100,000 population. When the rest of the nation sees this newscast they think omg things have really gotten out of control and we need to do something about it. And we know what that something ends up being.

Not news

Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we shouldn’t be in such a hurry to surrender our Right to Bear Arms.
Without the Second Amendment we have no way to defend ourselves and our families.

The only shocking thing about this story is that it isn't gang related....

the shooter turned his semi-automatic handgun
Why does it have to be a semi-automatic handgun? I guess they're doing their best to make a handgun seem more scary now.

This will not make any major news due to it being a handgun. If the weapon wasn't identified then major news could have milked it until the weapon was "properly" identified.

Sounds like you guys aren't aware that the Obama marketing machine is not focusing on this any longer. Relax fellas, this +@it happens all of the time but the media is now focused on deflecting scandal stories.
