Terminology[edit]

Just a point of reference, it is not called an assault rifle if it is semi-auto only, perhaps call it an "AK-47 style rifle". One would need a class III license (I think from the ATF) in order to get an actual assault rifle. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.78.183.102 (talk) 14:41, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Different sections?[edit]

Should this article be broken up into a few sections? There's enough news on the internet about the shootings that there could be a section on the shootings themselves, the suspect, and maybe the building in which it occured, while not having these be ridiculously short. I can try to do this, if other people agree. C628 (talk) 18:44, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Try to model it like the Kirkwood City Council shooting article (I actually knew the shooter in this case, he did our retaining wall, driveway, etc. and I know this sounds cliche', but he was a nutter.) username 1 (talk) 18:50, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

I came up with this, let me know how it looks. And I know there's redundant references; I'm not sure how to consolidate them:
I'm not sure how BBC got "3" critically injured but I'm fairly confident they're wrong.username 1 (talk)
I don't know either, but I think I used the New York Times for injuries, so that shouldn't be a big deal. Other than that, and a few punctuation problems I'll fix, is it okay to be put up? C628 (talk) 19:47, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done.username 1 (talk)

Alright. Thanks. C628 (talk) 19:55, 8 January 2010 (UTC)


Union Reference[edit]

The line "This was a union member" in the Background section seems rather odd and out of place. Is it really necessary? If so, perhaps it should be rephrased? Meltonkt (talk) 04:41, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Spree shooting?[edit]

What are peoples' thoughts on calling this a spree shooting? A couple of sources [1] [2] do say spree, while others don't. It doesn't seem to meet the definition of a shooting spree: "killings at two or more locations with almost no time break between murders". Ryan Vesey 05:57, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
