Breaking now for the last few hours.

http://www.kansas.com/news/local/crime/article62530532.html

Upwards of 7 deceased and 20 or more injured. Thoughts go out to all the families affected.

And here we go again...

Media heads are asking old women leading questions like, "Was it a machine gun?" So sick of this rhetoric...

    While not for sure it is rumored the shooter was a black male in his late 30's ... not a white guy. He is a convicted felon. Wonder what twists this might have if true?

    Local sheriff just had a news conference and it stands now at 4 dead including the shooter, 14 injured. Shooter was using a long gun in 223, I assume an ar. Local news has identified the shooter as 38 yr. old black male with multiple convictions in Florida for burglary and other things. He was employed at excel. It sounds like he was having trouble at work and had not been to work for a few days. Hesston town lawman went into the building alone and killed the shooter, Hesston is a small town.

    Later in nc the sheriff said it was 7.62. He showed a timeline, first shooting at 4.57 and the shooter arrived at the plant at 5.04, officer exchanging fire at 5.06, that's pretty fast. Shooter was reported down at 5.23. His facebook page shows him holding and later shooting an AK. It is hard to tell but it looks like auto but slam stock maybe?

    Hesston is just a few miles south of our old house in Kansas....If it can happen there, it can happen anywhere...

    Local news has identified the shooter as 38 yr. old black male .

    End of story then. There will not be a presidential outcry, there will be no outrage, just a black guy who was a "victim" of racial hatred at work.

    I found out today that he had been served a protection order from his girlfriend at 3.30 at the plant. He was a convicted felon and wasn't allowed to own a gun, well legally. Just a wacko that couldn't control his temper.

    This ended up as all incidents of this type need to end up...with the perpetrator being put in a bag. Don't worry about why they did it...just put them down and begin the healing process....as I've said before, you can't rationalize crazy or evil

    It appears the DA is seeking charges on some gal who gave him the guns...
