Multiple people killed, more wounded.

Internet rumor currently says the shooter was Antifa.

Now the stuff starts to come in... 72 hour rule applies for bare minimum facts to be established.

So what's this "news" site?Looks tin foily on the face of it. Reporting the shooter is a 29 year old prior service Marine who converted to Islam who left a video manifesto on line.

Rumor has it the Texas DPS- Criminal Investigation branch is taking the lead. IIRC, that's the Texas Rangers.
EDIT: YEP, sure is.

Abbott should call Trump and ask him to keep the FBI in the background, as the FBI is likely compromised.

From what I have been reading (prior to this) all useful FBI training material that is even slightly negative on Islam has been purged from all official teaching events.

compromised is when they do it to us. Manifestly corrupt or worse is when we do it to ourselves.

And the blood dancing begins
Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal has called on Congress to act on gun control in the wake of the latest mass shooting.

FYI:

Per TPC 46.035 (b)(6) "A license holder commits an offense if the license holder intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries a handgun under the authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, regardless of whether the handgun is concealed or carried in a shoulder or belt holster, on or about the license holder's person...on the premises of a church, synagogue, or other established place of religious worship."

One report I saw indicated that the shooter had been dishonorably discharged from the Air Force.

If so, he was legally barred from possessing or purchasing a firearm. AFAIK.

If he did receive a DD, I wonder if someone bought the gun for him, or if NICS failed?
