Funny how the partisan rhetoric in America is always following this rule:

If a bomber/shooter belongs to our party, he is a crazy individual, a lone lunatic.

If a bomber/shooter belongs to the opposition party, he is part of a disturbing mass mindset that threatens our society and which we must combat!

And now we have a live shooting with multiple casualties (including police officers) at a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-46002549
Footage broadcast on US news channels showed a police Swat team and ambulances arriving at the scene.

The gunman was a reportedly a heavy-set white male with a beard.

At least four people have been killed in Saturday morning's shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, according to a city official.

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/27/us/pittsburgh-synagogue-active-shooter/index.html

The shooter surrendered to Pittsburgh police and was being transported to Mercy Hospital, said Curt Conrad, chief of staff for City Councilman Corey O'Connor.

Another law enforcement official told CNN at least 12 people have been shot.

I know some people who fit the profile. Should I call the FBI?

Trump reckons the Synagogue should have had armed guards on the doors.

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/27/politics/trump-jba-death-penalty-pittsburgh/index.html

It was actually a small Saturday morning baby-naming service that was taking place according to various reports.

https://news.sky.com/story/live-multiple-casualties-in-us-synagogue-shooting-11537354

Eight people are reported dead, and a 46 y/o white male named as Robert Bowers has been taken into custody. Witnesses say he was armed with an AR-15, and was shouting anti-semitic slogans during the attack.

Only way to find out how inaccurate that assessment is: Count/classify the targets; count/classify the perpetrators; graph and compare.

BTW - I don't know about you, but I find the proliferation of violent lunatics, even lonely ones who haven't replicated their DNA, more than a little disturbing.

I've looked at DOJ figures, and most of these attacks are coming from right wing loonies. And the right wing always responds that the attacker was a crazed individual, nothing to do with them. The spike in such acts of violence since Jan. 2017 is pretty steep. They are crawling out from under their rocks and feeling empowered by the Trump administration.

Well, sure! We saw that coming in the campaign rallies - which have continued throughout this administration. (After all, that's what he really likes, not so much the job.)
Even aside from that, any totally uninformed observer would naturally suppose that the people who advocate for gun control would be less prone to violence than who militate against gun control.
