    OK, so so far, nobody has determined if the shooter was just looking to shoot up any non-whites, the Sikhs specifically, or Muslims (but confused them with Sikhs), right?

    Any updates?

    This thread has gone weird. People doubting a skinhead could go into a house of worship and murder a bunch of strangers? Why the heck not? They base their worldview on HATE. It's easier to kill what you hate than it is to kill what you love. Just because you personally have never managed to hold onto a hate and grow it beyond your own survival instinct's ability to rein it in, doesn't mean no one else can do that. I find it far easier to believe a skinhead would kill a roomful of Sikhs than that a Sikh would kill a roomful of skinheads. Racist of me? Or am I a realist?

    Whether or not they came from the same source or not, the only term that is being put before the entire public is "squad rifle". People, that are not familiar/knowledgable with firearms, would not know the difference between a Daisy BB gun, a "squad rifle", an M4 or a 50cal. Barrett rifle. If the MSM was really honest:upeyes::rofl: and the "squad rifle" that took out Page(I totally agree that Page got exactly what he deserved when the police officer took him out) was really in deed an M4, why don't they call it an assault rifle just like they call it when they are trying to demonize gun owners and push for another AWB?

    The police used a rifle, so there should be no 9mm, 40 S&W, 45ACP etc discussions in caliber corner.

    They may not want to point out police use an "assault weapon", heaven forbid one of the evil things was used for good.:dunno:

    I will concede that this could be the case. But IMHO, I would think that if the police were going into a possibily residential area, that a .308 would be too much overkill to use. I would also think that the police officers would use a 5.56/.223 with frangible bullets to prevent further people from being injured/killed if there were further shootouts.
