Umpqua Community College Shooting: The School Shooting Epidemic Continues

Yesterday another college campus was under siege from a school shooter. As of the most recent reports, nine people were killed and others were injured. According to a news report, all the firearms the shooter had were obtained legally.

I wonder what motivated the shooter's grievance against Christians, as it appears that he was targeting these specific students. I also whether he had ever had any contact with the mental health system. Had a threat management team ever had a previous reason to meet with him?

My prayers go out to everyone affected in this tragedy. Let's hope that we figure out how to better keep our campuses safe.
