Well the thing is the video game they were playing was Madden 19.

It was a disgruntled gamer who lost in the tournament. Probably snapped and shot up the place before killing himself.

Humanity... the strongest species the world has ever seen, to the point that it can take over the planet like the greatest plague it will ever know... And yet the weakest species to exist as it can't even handle it's own damn feelings without shooting up game tournaments, schools, running people over, flying planes into buildings, etc.



The mutagen of the Turtles' world needs to be real, I want off this boat.

Good thing it wasn't a CoD tournament. So it will be hard to blame a sports game for this.

This Florida Man thing seems to be a meme.
The biggestmeme is the Sam Hyde meme, mainly because the MSM are full of idiots and will report anything troll sites such as 4Chan tell them. Also no, this only gives people in power plenty of ammo (no pun intended) to make this a "video games are deadly" issue.

Florida has a "concealed carry" law and a "stand your ground" law
The stand your ground law is extremely controversial and many people appose conceal carry as well. I don't believe florida has lax gun laws, but I know they do not have strict gun laws either.

You can have the strictest gun laws in the world, it wont change the fact that if someone really REALLY wants to get one and use it, they will. People cant grasp this, apparently.

That's OK.

Also, this particular shooting will not be a media frenzy. Killer used a handgun. Sounds like his social media has lots of leftist agitprop, Trump-hating stuff. David Hogg will stay clear of this. Too close to home.

Edit: Also noteworthy, Jacksonville Landing, where this shooting took place... it's a "Gun Free Zone." Both Orlando Pulse (6-12-176) and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (2-14-18 ) were "Gun Free Zone"s as well.

Except the off duty cop in the Orlando Pulse Shooting had a gun
