Early reports are saying that 4 are dead and 10 wounded. This would mark the first Twitch event to have something of this nature broadcast on it. The video doesn't show any violence on it but the shots can be heard going out and is fairly disturbing in nature. It's not recommended you watch if your easily disturbed.

The shooting happened literally minutes ago so most sources are probably fairly wrong:

Is it still too early to talk about gun control?

Haven't you heard? The answer is to turn everything into a prison yard. The reason shootings happen is because there isn't enough draconian aesthetics being utilized to #protectaregunz.

We don't even know if the shooter legally acquired the weapon(s) yet. If illegally acquired, then the shooter weaseled around gun control, period, and screaming either "more" or "less" gun control is nill. Even when legally acquired, gun control and otherwise aren't perfect and this shit could still happen. Neither flawlessly protect against the human element. I get that folks are angry (I am a bit, myself), but diving into politics and getting nasty is superfluous and only exacerbates the chaos.


The facts are still rolling in. It's going to be some time before the story is in order.

This is a normal part of our society now, every now and then somebody snaps and shoots some people ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

you know if the shut in/otaku demographic could just figure out how to breed we might actually outlast normal people that like to go out and *shudder* do stuff

Ugh, I'm literally going to USA in 6 days for a 3 week vacation. I hope the crazies will avoid the places I'm going to.

Odds are in your favor nothing happens. Just don't go do certain places in the inner cities and you should be fine.

since there aren't enough facts to roll around in, I would like to state this is what domestic terrorism looks like. it starts with forcing people to hide in fear and not want to go out and enjoy every day life, regardless of what that is, let alone to have fun. I hope they are able to find out more and bring this/these terrorists to justice. thus far my condolences to the family/friends and just because guns are being used, it's not the tool's fault, but the nut/s who are using them.

One of the attendees states that the guy who did the shooting was a player that had lost his game. Some fucking child, who couldn't handle losing at a video game and shoots the place up. Thank god this is America and every retard can get a gun. What's super disturbing about that video is you can actually see the laser sight on that young mans chest right before the video cuts out.

This is just sickening, and I guess we're ok with it because everyone and their mom will scream it's too soon to talk about gun control.

The argument that gun control isn't the problem because mass shootings tend to take place in places with "heavy" gun control is often interesting.

However the counter argument that the lack of enforcement of gun control nation wide causes these loopholes also seems to be valid.

And when people bring up Mexico and how you can easily buy an illegal gun from Mexico, what is often forgotten is that Mexico buys most of it's guns illegally from the U.S.
