Let's see what the right wing media has to say about this.

I always wonder how many of those posts are legit, and how many are from Russian trolls...

I wish I could find the short story this all reminds me of. In it guns are everywhere and people have taken the idea that 'everyone gets shot once" Literally and thus put all their children in bullet proof vests for that inevitable day they will get shot, maybe a classmate, maybe a mailman, maybe another toddler. "Where's your vest" replaces "Don't forget your coat." Bigger/nicer vests have become part of coming of age celebrations. In it the protaganist ends up having a freak out and shooting herself in the vest protected chest in attempt to alleviate the fear of the day she will get shot.

Not a mass shooting, an FBI report on shooter behaviour:

Developing story:

LIVE COVERAGE: Multiple fatalities reported after shooting at Capital-Gazette newspaper in Annapolis

I'm so, so tired of living in a country where this thread has cause to get updated multiple times per week. The shooter's motive is currently unknown, but I can't help wondering whether the right-wing attacks on the press contributed (it is irresponsible not to speculate, after all).

I think this is the point where someone is supposed to post the Casablanca clip, but to be honest, I'm just not in the mood.

(To be fair, he seems to have had a vendetta against the paper since at least 2012 or so... but he didn't act on it in 2012. He acted on it today. And AFAIK it's not officially confirmed that the screenshotted Twitter account is the terrorist's, but if it's not, someone was playing a long game impersonating him - some of the tweets appear to be pretty old.)

Carl Hiaasen's brother is among the confirmed murder/terrorism victims, by the way.

My condolences to everyone who lost family members in today's attack.

ETA: on this thought, I'll try to get some sleep
