Arizona Shooting-Video Made By Shooter Shows Disturbing Signs About the Gunman

Arizona authorities have identified Jared Lee Loughner, 22, as the man who allegedly opened fire at a public event in Tucson, Arizona, striking U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head. They're also seeking a second, unnamed person of interest, citing reason to believe that the gunman did not act alone. According to Caitie Parker, who says she has known Loughner for years, he apparently met Giffords once in 2007, and described her as "stupid and unintelligent." Loughner, initially reported as a possible veteran, once attempted to enlist but was rejected, according to the U.S. military.

While few details about Loughner have been confirmed, some unsettling YouTube videos filmed just weeks ago have been attributed to him. One video consists of a mix between delusional rants and harrowing warnings. After explaining his opposition to what he calls “treasonous laws,” he goes on to write, “In conclusion, reading the second United States Constitution, I can’t trust the current government because of the ramifications: The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar.” He continues “No! I won’t pay debt with a currency that’s not backed by gold and silver! No! I won’t trust in God!”

In early October, Laughner allegedly posted an eerie video in which he, wearing a trash bag and a hoodie and a giant mask, sets an American flag on fire, with the song “Bodies” by Drowning Pool playing in the background.

Law enforcement officials have confirmed the gun that was used in the attack was bought legally. The shooter, allegedly Loughner, reportedly fired on Giffords from about four feet away, sending her to the hospital with critical wounds, injuring 18 people in total and killing six, including a child and a federal judge. The gun was purchased on November 30 at Sportman’s Warehouse, in Tucson, and was bought along with at least one additional handgun.

    • hahaha. i picture it. let's just hypothetically assume you could transform every u.s. citizen from 16 to 60 into a responsible unerring gun owner, capable of recognizing a threat and eliminating it within seconds. swat skills that is for everyone...
      now everyone would draw their guns and shoot at the gunman, probably hitting and finally killing Congresswoman Giffords (quote: "about four feet away") too. oh don't forget the cops/bodyguards: must be great to suddenly have dozens of gunm More..

    • Exacly. I've been saying it for a while now: these people NEED more guns. Maybe we should do something about it, send them our unwanted guns or something...

    • Your right. Im from Chicago were Daley decided no guns allowed(thankfully the fed govt stepped in last year and shut that down)and we have no crime there at all. As long as the only people with guns are trigger happy cops and trigger happy gang members then the world will be a safe place for all

  • WTF is this shit, it makes no sense. And ironically his grammer is all fucked up too. This guy is a total fucking prick and needs to die a slooooooowwww painful death.

    Maybe he can claim he was sleepwalking when he started shooting.

  • HE is a dead man no matter what now. If Arizona does not kill him....the inmates will. You do not hurt children. That is an unspoken code even among the most hardened felons. Leave the kids alone. He is a dead man either way.

  • Jared Lee Loughner is not profound or of any sort of interesting intellect. Just some idiot with no idea what life is about and at his young age hasn't figured it out or is was longing for some attention. Attention he will now receive in prison for the rest of his life, considering he killed a federal judge he will never make parol. He will not be an icon in prison because he killed a young child any one associated with him will suffer so he will more or less be a mark to be killed or taken, bei More..

    • gun control doesn't equal dictatorship

      a citizen owning multiple guns can not do anything more about his rights as a citizen than someone who doesn't own guns

    • Something LIBS overlook ;
      If only the government held all the guns,
      which direction would they point them.

      Tianimin square ...oh
      what a shame that was. Well, it's a moot point for those that tried to "change" thier world isn't it.

      Imagine if the Chinese government "feared" what their own citizens might do the week of the "western influenced" insurrection.


      oh

      lets not go there shall we?

    • And Mexico. Don't forget Mexico. Harsh gun control laws and piles of bodies from gun violence. This is not a gun control issue.
