Which was what pray tell. This guy belonged to a facebook group called Terminate the Republican party, a little different than a few targets over political districts. Shame on the democrat party and their False narratives about trump and republicans, along with their accomplices in the media!

Sorry this guy was set off by months of hatred toward Trump, and republicans by a party and media, who can't admit they got it handed to them. You can't change that and shame on you for trying to change what this ws about.

I'll bet a lot of Republicans are going to change their minds about background checks, concealed carry and other laws from the wild west, now that they and possibly their financiers could find themselves targeted by a Democrat who watches too much Maddow and CNN!

On that point, one of the contributing factors leading to a liberal/left gunman going out to kill Republicans is the way MSM fails to talk about issues and makes it all about celebrities and personalities. If I was willing to numb my brain for 24 hours of watching CNN and MSNBC I might come to the conclusion that all I got to do is get rid of Trump, and peace and prosperity will be restored! Trump is too protected to access, so this guy went after an outdoor Republican event.

A local news channel in Virginia has published a timeline of the shooter's social media posts...most of them from the 2012 Election, where he appears to be a typical Obama loyalist and fan of Rachel Maddow. Belleville, IL Congressional gunman letters to the editor | Belleville News-Democrat
His condemnations of income inequality...one of the few issues he gets to, typify what I might find if I watched Maddow also: it's all Republicans fault, and all we have to do is elect Democrats and the problems will be solved.
This is the problem of personality politics, which doesn't understand that the Structure of political, government and economic systems determine who gets into office, and how much they will compromise their principles once elected. This guy showed none of any deeper awareness...otherwise he wouldn't have been dumb enough to think all you got to do is kill Republicans to solve the problem!
No i won't let the subject be changed, this is on democrat leaders, and the media, not guns.

some people said it - jerks

I said the same thing then I said now

the only person responsible is the lunatic with the gun - and perhaps the people who made it so easy for him to obtain the gun and conceal carry permit

Yes, a couple years ago there was a production which had an Obama-like character playing Julius Caesar.
During the 20th century and the first few years of the 21st century, every once in a while there has been a production of the play with a current political leader - not always the President, but often was - being used as the character of Julius Caesar. It brings the play 'current' to audiences who sometimes find the politics in the play hard to follow when it's about Caesar - but, can follow it more easily when it's populated with current political figures.
It has never been controversial until now.
Trumpelthinskin and the rest of the Trumpeteers can't stand anything other than public glorification of the king. So a fuss was raised.
It's really much ado about nothing - well, it's Julius Caesar, but you get my drift.
Take that to another thread it is not related.

He used a rifle. The conceal carry permit doesn't enter into this.

it's totally related ... it goes to show how the right wing loves to dish out dirt and nasty slurs and promote violence and enjoy embarrassment at the expense of others ... but are oh-so-quick to cry 'VICTIM' when it's returned on them.

the left wing has not retaliated in kind for so many decades the right have just got into the mind set that being vicious and nasty is their territory and not to be invaded.

surprise
Thanks from RNG and catus felis

This is on NO ONE except the guy who did the shooting.

Apparently BOTH sides want to place the blame somewhere other there where it belings.
