This 2nd turned out to be something different—a terrorist attack.

I was on the way into the base when it started. Prob 100+ emergency vehicles absolutely screaming into base.

Do you have any indication whatsoever that the Pearl Harbor shooting was an act of terrorism?

AFAIK the FBI has only said they start with a presumption that it's terrorism as they do with most active shooter investigations but had not yet identified a motive. i don't think they have identified a motive in the pearl harbor shooting either

The shooter posted a short manifesto online, I believe to Twitter, where he basically went right down the checklist of grievances and motivations common to radical Islamists, complete with a quote from ObL. There is some other more interpersonal stuff, but of note to me, that didn’t seem to influence where his attack was targeted—he went out of his way to choose a location with more people.

He also hosted a dinner the night before where he and his buddies watched mass shooting videos, and then a couple of his friends (from one report I saw, a couple of the same ones from the night before) filmed the attack.

I don’t really want to go further than that in a public forum. I am very, very closely, umm, adjacent to this investigation. I mean REALLY close. Read the news, though...I was adamant when we first learned it was a Saudi that we shouldn’t jump to the terrorism conclusion—but it’s clear now that’s what it was.

the news said the twitter account wasn't confirmed to be his

and non terrorism mass shooters probably also like mass shooting vids

And it's a pretty fine line for what constitutes "terrorism". It's using violence and intimidation, particularly against civilians, for "political" purposes, but it could be argued that most mass shooters are doing it for some reason that could be construed to be "political".

that probably didn't help...but that was >6 months ago, and it would not have been difficult for him to shoot the guy who called him that. In fact, he went out of his way to shoot up somewhere else.

I'm defining "terrorism" as primarily ideologically or politically motivated--and basically all indications we have are that's what this was.

(not because he watched mass shooting vids, for exactly the reason you stated).

Interesting they've grounded all saudis from flight training. I wonder if there's more info there or if it's just xenophobia.

Shooting determined to be terrorism, and motivated by jihadist ideology.

21 Saudis (out of the ~850 training in the US) sent home, with the reasons being anti-American material/internet activity, child porn, and possibly other "un-officerlike qualities." 12 of those were from Pensacola (all of the Saudis here), although apparently none of them were complicit in the attack. 15/21 had child porn found on their computers.

I was scheduled to be in the same room with the shooter that morning in the simulator building. He was supposed to be with one of my co-workers in another simulator.

^^^ the grounded them all until they could investigate and see what was going on, as it seemed very plausible, maybe even likely, based on what we knew early on, that other students were involved or at least aware.

I read it “didn’t meet federal thresholds for prosecution.” I read that some were recalled by the Saudis for unofficer-like qualities, not necessarily forced out by us—albeit with assurances that we could recall them for prosecution if further information was discovered.

Like drinking. So many die of drunk drivers, let's outlaw that. Dude I graduated with and his whole family got wiped out going to church at 7 am.

Outlaw bourbon and bars.

In 2019 there were 37000 motor vehicle deaths and 39000 firearm deaths. What do you think the ratio is of "hours in a car" to "hours handling firearms" is. Driving a vehicle is also necessary for adult life almost universally

Finally to close out this useless serious response to a dumb straw man, the implication is that making drunk driving illegal is useless bc people stil die from drunk drivers which is just dumb as hell

^ half are suicides, the remaining half of the half are gangs. The rest are angry family and boyfriends. Are those relatable to mass shootings?

That's from memory. I'm sure it's off but within an order of magnitude. At best hundreds of people die in mass shootings.

Half of driving deaths are drunk driving. Easily 15K. Ban alcohol or you hate humans. Drinking is not necessary, driving is.

I don't even understand what your dumb point is

Are you saying you think mass shootings should be legal? Or guns should be illegal? It seems like you're trying to make two separate points, one about the frequency of mass shootings and the other about, I don't know, the logic of outlawing guns maybe? but you haven't really made a full argument about either. If you are going to troll at least make an effort to be coherent.

Then this should also be coherent to you, because it's intentionally parroting your arguments:

We are so far from banning guns. It's a stupid argument. Background checks and closing loopholes is not equivalent to repealing the Second Amendment, Ted Cruz.
