Yet we still haven't learned his hometown, his rank, his military occupational specialty, his length of service, his previous disciplinary problems if any, etc.

Most people that perpetrate mass shootings, military and civilian, are mentally "off."

Detecting them and preventing such tragedies is worthy of a high priority, but don't expect very much by way of results.

Not very news worthy news.   Ft Hood is in an area all by itself, not much around except the base.
You've got Killeen, Copperas Cove, and Harker Heights.  A majority of which are military families (either active duty or retired)

It's like saying they bought their car from the same dealership.

I like the way you think.  :laugh:

You noticed that the gun shop's role in preventing an attack is attached on as an after-thought? Well below the 100 word limit.

I really wonder who actually publicized it.

The prevention note was sort of like "by the way"...

It was also sneaky. The vast majority of people who click on a news story simply will not scroll down. It's a well known phenomenon in internet publishing, and why most articles on the various sites you enjoy are limited to a couple hundred words, tops. Many just read the lede and move on. It is a frighteningly good way of setting the tone of a discussion.

This smells hard of the gun control lot letting it out.

Have seen articles that had nothing to do with the actual headline.  And you're right, many don't even bother reading anything but that, maybe the first paragraph.  The funny thing is they then consider themselves "informed".

It should be remembered, the private information your give your gun store is not so private.
