Dude, CS is almost 500,000 in population by itself and 755,000 for the Metro area.

Hell, Amarillo has a gay club and it's at 200k/300k for comparison.

Js1, yet again witnessing the gay community seemingly (we'll see how the story unfolds) being the targets of hate and violence, cracks a joke about hypocritical evangelicals. And Newdoc is more concerned about the latter's feelings. Ok, then.

Bro do you even #bothsides?

Alleged perp: Anderson Lee Aldrich. 

First time seeing a name leaked. 
Bloomberg reports just that its a 22-year old, with a long rifle. Police grabbed witness surveillance footage and no further info given out.

What a nightmare.  It just never fucking ends.

And anyone who is breathlessly analyzing “grooming,” “gender replacement theories,” or transgender athletes in sports is feeding this hate. 

Also: Yes, all but the smallest, most rural conservative communities have at least one bar where people who are aware, know what’s up.  I know, because as a snobby liberal coastal elite, when my wife and I are in fly over country, it’s where we go to have a drink and not have to put up with a bunch of narrow minded bullshit.

Why don't you just flyover it?

So, waiting to see whether this latest mass murder was targeted killing of a sexual minorities or if it was “only” a personal quarrel or something similar. What a country. 

People are waiting to response with the appropriate level of outrage.  If it was a lovers quarrel.  It would be a senseless tragedy that could have been avoided.  If it was some alt right Trumpkin then it's time to burn the mother fucker down.  It's about the hate they give!

I don’t think a lover’s quarrel would result in 5 dead and 18 injured unless the person was a really bad shot.

He has a history.

"Tactical Support Unit, which includes the Regional Explosives Unit was called in. Around 10 homes were evacuated in the surrounding area, while an emergency text notification was sent out to homes within a 1/4-mile radius of the address.

The Regional Explosives Unit cleared both homes and did not find any explosive devices.

At around 6:00 p.m., the suspect was taken into custody and has been booked into the El Paso County Jail. Aldrich faces two counts of Felony Menacing and three counts of First-Degree Kidnapping."

Police say the shooting was stopped by two club patrons that tackled and disarmed the shooter. Holy shit. 

I’m guessing they actually executed the recommended “rush them while changing mags” advice.  That’s a couple of dudes with huge stones.

No dipshit, js1 is more concerned about the religious right than innocent dead people.

Wasn’t a navy gay club in SD burned down recently? Shaped like a Wasp class and named Good Man Dick  in French or something?

Yep.  It ain't queer if it's tied next to the pier.  It also aint gay if it's underway.  Navy has both sides protected.

The two aren’t mutually exclusive.

Yeah that small fringe group that potrays absolutely no Christian values is your anecdotal evidence that the 22 year old shooter is a card carrying member of Focus on the Family.

Maybe the shooter is an absolute nutcake that should have had mental health treatment and no access to weapons. I would start with that angle instead of blindly lashing out.

Actually I would start with it’s a tragedy that could have been preventable and let’s mourn the senseless deaths and injuries while we gather evidence on why it happened.
