    This isn't far from my work. Police and news helicopters have been floating around all day, with a substantial LE presence. Hope they get the guy!

    Get ready for Seattle to try to tighten gun laws. When I lived up there it was every few years. They treat criminals like they are "sick" and just "need help" while they try to restrict law abiding citizens right to defend themselves.

    Granted I live in Tacoma...shootings are more common here I think.

    Seeing how the community, media and politicians have been treating the Seattle police lately, I'm sure the police will be blamed for the outcome.

    I haven't read in a while on GT about how, if the victims had been armed, they wouldn't have been shot or be dead.

    I was a few blocks away from their search. Many cops and news around. Just saw on the news that the guy shot himself.

    I'm not an expert on your area but when I moved to WA, I was told Tacoma was the "Oakland, CA of WA" :dunno:

    They're blaming guns, law abiding people that own guns, and the NRA.

    Seriously, the city of Seattle is pushing for more gun control at the state level.

    Well, hopefully the guy does not make it out of the hospital. But some will say that life in prison forever and being a punk is worse than death.

    Seattle is a city where idiots, criminals, anarchist and other vermin are considered misunderstood.

    Several cops have been brought up on charges where upon they were caught doing a "Whoop Arse" upon someone who desperately needed it.

    After 20 years of living there the beauty of the city became a quagmire of liberal idiocy.
    We are long gone and I never want to return. JMO.

    It appears the shooter was seriously mentally ill, and had regretting more-aggressive over the course of a couple years.

    I also heard tonight that he's the cousin of my best friend in high school, and I apparently met him a couple times back then. I don't recall meeting him, though I do remember stories about the outta control cousin who got thrown out of the army for sharpening his entrenching tool.

    Doesn't really change anything, but it sure does bring the tragedy of his innocent victims closer.

    Yeah, I saw some of the coverage on the news and the assistant Chief came on and mentioned that. I wonder what will come of this law wise if anything.

    This wasn't a 'shootout'...this was a lunatic executing hipsters in a coffee shop.

    Had this been at a Whataburger in a small Texas town, it would have been a shootout...with a different outcome.
