The gunman who opened fire at a Virginia Walmart has been identified as Andre Bing, a manager at the store, who killed six co-workers before taking his own life.

A Facebook Live video apparently made by a Walmart employee had been circulating online showing a co-worker that she calls “Andre.”

The young man is seen joking with the workers before he walks away when the woman points her camera at him. It was unclear when the footage was shot.

Chief of Chesapeake Police Mark Solesky said the gunman killed six co-workers before killing himself with a handgun

Apparently he gave NO indication of what he was about to do.

5. This happened a few miles from me

At the risk of sounding cynical here is what will happen staggered by a few days each:

comments that this does not happen here
united we stand
we are strong
brave responders
talk of gun control
now is not the time
a short while later a gun show will be nearby.

11. Gov Youngkin has already stated this is not the time to talk about gun reforms

we have to wait until the next mass shooting, and then the next one, and so on. So the right time to talk about gun reform will never come.

17. But it'll be all right.

Governor Youngkin says it's not time now to talk about gun control, so I'm sure he has a plan.

23. They never do.

They are super focused on themselves and their "mission/plan" getting accomplished first. Then they feel they can die since they were successful. Being both narcissistic and crazy is not a good combo, especially with all the guns available everywhere.

If I were considering moving to the US from another country the gun violence factor would be a big deterrent for me.

16. People Control, Not Gun Control

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/walmart-suspect-andre-bing-was-longtime-employee-was-little-rcna58574

He should not have been allowed to possess a gun....

This is my generic response to gun threads where people are shot and killed by the dumb or criminal possession of guns. For the record, I grew up in the South and on military bases. I was taught about firearms as a child, and I grew up hunting, was a member of the NRA, and I still own guns. In the 70’s, I dropped out of the NRA because they become more radical and less interested in safety and training. Some personal experiences where people I know were involved in shootings caused me to realize that anyone could obtain and posses a gun no matter how illogical it was for them to have a gun. Also, easy access to more powerful guns, guns in the hands of children, and guns that weren’t secured are out of control in our society. As such, here’s what I now think ought to be the requirements to possess a gun. I’m not debating the legal language, I just think it’s the reasonable way to stop the shootings. Notice, none of this restricts the type of guns sold. This is aimed at the people who shoot others, because it’s clear that they should never have had a gun.

1.) Anyone in possession of a gun (whether they own it or not) should have a regularly renewed license. If you want to call it a permit, certificate, or something else that's fine.
2.) To get a license, you should have a background check, and be examined by a professional for emotional and mental stability appropriate for gun possession. It might be appropriate to require that examination to be accompanied by references from family, friends, employers, etc. This check is not to subject you to a mental health diagnosis, just check on your superficial and apparent gun-worthyness.
3.) To get the license, you should be required to take a safety course and pass a test appropriate to the type of gun you want to use.
4.) To get a license, you should be over 21. Under 21, you could only use a gun under direct supervision of a licensed person and after obtaining a learner’s license. Your license might be restricted if you have children or criminals or other unsafe people living in your home. (If you want to argue 18 or 25 or some other age, fine. 21 makes sense to me.)
5.) If you possess a gun, you would have to carry a liability insurance policy specifically for gun ownership - and likely you would have to provide proof of appropriate storage, security, and whatever statistical reasons that emerge that would drive the costs and ability to get insurance.
6.) You could not purchase a gun or ammunition without a license, and purchases would have a waiting period.
7.) If you possess a gun without a license, you go to jail, the gun is impounded, and a judge will have to let you go (just like a DUI).
8.) No one should carry an unsecured gun (except in a locked case, unloaded) when outside of home. Guns should be secure when transporting to a shooting event without demonstrating a special need. Their license should indicate training and special carry circumstances beyond recreational shooting (security guard, etc.). If you are carrying your gun while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you lose your gun and license.
9.) If you buy, sell, give away, or inherit a gun, your license information should be recorded.
10.) If you accidentally discharge your gun, commit a crime, get referred by a mental health professional, are served a restraining order, etc., you should lose your license and guns until reinstated by a serious relicensing process.

Most of you know that a license is no big deal. Besides a driver’s license you need a license to fish, operate a boat, or many other activities. I realize these differ by state, but that is not a reason to let anyone without a bit of sense pack a semiautomatic weapon in public, on the roads, and in schools. I think we need to make it much harder for some people to have guns.

But then they'll bitch about people who "should have never had one"

20. Paranoid. Thought he was being spied on by the government.

Got a gun. Killed people.
According to Daily Mail, former co-workers described Bing as ‘weird’ and so paranoid “about being watched by the government that he taped over the camera on his phone.”

A man responded on her comment thread, “Bro killed a whole bunch of innocent kind people mhn. Wtf.” Draayia wrote on her own thread, “As much as we joked w Andre … boy was looney whole timeeee.”

Another person responded, “I just said the same thing to my husband. I knew one day he was gonna snap. I just didn’t know to what extent.” A man agreed: “But you got to remember I kept telling y’all that boy was crazy in the head.” Draayia responded, “everybody knew that tho … just ain’t think he would do sumn like this.”
