PORTLAND, Ore. — A masked gunman wearing camouflage opened fire Tuesday in a busy Portland mall, leaving the gunman and two others dead and forcing the mall's Santa Claus and hundreds of Christmas shoppers and employees to flee or hide among store displays.

Austin Patty, 20, who works at Macy's, said he saw a man in a white mask carrying a rifle and wearing a bulletproof vest. He heard the gunman say, "I am the shooter," as if announcing himself. A series of rapid-fire shots in short succession followed as Christmas music played. Patty said he ducked to the ground and then ran.

Currently, he has only killed 2 people. There is a girl in the hospital fighting for her life. The shooter died of a self inflicted gunshot wound. It's sad that all of this happened so close to the holidays but I really saw it coming. I was at the mall last week thinking "damn, there are a lot of people here". It would almost make sense that someone would pick this time to do a mall shooting.

Forgive me if this was posted already... I am learning my way around the boards. I looked and didn't see anything!

Why is the world filled with such paranoid freaks? :cry:

τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

Because going to the mall during Christmas can get you shot.

I wouldn't worry too much about it Lilly...  If you think of all the millions of people that shop in malls/large stores every day at this time of the year, and of how rare it is for some whack job to go on a shooting spree... I would say your odds of coming out all right are pretty darned good ...

Now, if you're talking about traffic problems, parking problems, crowding and mall prices... That's a different story...

On black friday/cyber monday there are really some good deals. I dont really like crowded places anyway so I take advantage of online shopping on those days.

Yes, and I might be doing the same as Lilly because I really don't want to be in that moment at the mercy of some crazed gunman.

In what way were any of us supposed to see this coming? What way did you see it coming??

Of course the answer to this is for everyone to carry a gun when they go shopping. Isn't that what the Second Amendment is for???

Sounds like more suburban terrorism opportunity  for someone to have his 5 minutes of infamy.

The story goes that the descendants of both versions populate the Earth today with, inevitably, one version ruling the other…"

Aww, The second amendment has been taken away from the citizens and replaced with fear of the unknown and a color coded system thanks to the federal government.
My 2 cents,hehe

No, it's happening much more then that. We only hear about the nicer areas in which it happens.

Well maybe everyone else walks around carelessly unaware of the world around them? I don't. I went shopping around black friday and thought to myself that it is literally only a matter of time before there is another mass shooting. If what you thought I meant was that we should have all seen this coming at this specific mall, then you misunderstood. I was putting my money on another mall shooting in the Christmas season. You can call me psychic if ya wish. I call it common sense.

And it's really incredibly stupid, in my opinion, that everyone should carry a gun with them shopping.

It's a sign of the times...

As much as I'd like to believe things like this will begin occurring less and less, I have little faith that they will. I think we are still trending in the direction of society succumbing to more and more violence.
