Although the hostage taker probably is a former "good guy," so there's that.

I just came from a meeting with CalVet reps regarding grants for homelessness and therapy for vets outside the VA system. I hope the cops can just talk him out of it.

to give thoughts and prayers instead of real solutions. This is going to make the NRA nuts come up with a new excuse..if the person is over 21, has experience and "respect" for weapons of war, not affiliated with a specific hate group or religion, didn't watch video games or had a history of mental health issues than why did he do it? It is never the gun's fault, it is always the shooter's or even sometimes they even blame the victims. I will bet you $1,000,000 it was done by a man. More specifically, an American man.
