>>> authorities today identified 22-year-old jacob tyler roberts as the man who walked into an oregon shopping mall packed with holiday shoppers and children in line to see santa and opened fire with an ar-15 semiautomatic rifle . police say roberts who wore a hockey mask during the rampage killed two shoppers, injured a third before taking his own life. police also say they have no motive for the crime and that the high powered weapon had been stolen. and so now comes the predictable cycle. a horrendous crime with firearm stronger than any hunter would need. an honest attempt at a gun control conversation that america badly needs. and then contempt as anyone who would speculate about the application of the second amendment. lather, rinse, repeat. today seen through the prison of yet another mass shooting. the 15th this last year. last week seen through the prism of domestic violence after an nfl shot and killed his wife and then himself. we know where it goes. condemnation of the crime, but no political courage to do anything. but if congress were prepared to do something, anything, that would be the best christmas present of all time.
