No matter how much the far left wishes it was so, an AR is NOT an assault rifle.

You should reconsider your position, imo. It's not about what the left or right think, but all about this very young man and how his crowd thinks. Everything else is distortion, amiright?
.. served in the Army for two years. Soldiers who served with Clyde said he came from a family of military veterans and often participated in war re-enactments
"In the military and the younger generation, it's very common to joke about suicidal depressive thoughts," Bielby said.
Bielby said that after Clyde was discharged in 2017, he didn't stay in close contact with him. When he heard the news of the shooting, Bielby thought immediately of a photo Clyde had posted on Facebook of several gun magazines two days before the shooting.
"2 40 rounders and 8 30 rounders total," Clyde wrote in the post.
But Bielby said that wasn't a red flag.
How probable is it that he is acting alone, essentially repeating the exact mannerisms and methods of many domestic terrorists? He drops off the planet other than his Facebook posts which are enthusiastic about the incel gun terrorism trope. Now that he is dead we must rely on military persons as witnesses to his behavior, but they also offer motives. I really don't like unquestioning manner of the article. Every domestic terrorist must be ran through the false flag detector. It feels like another garden path article implying that all of these obvious signs lead to what is possibly an incorrect diagnostic of the situations used as justification.
On June 9, the day a sudden, violent storm blew through Dallas, Clyde posted a video to Facebook in which he is illuminated by candlelight.
Because they lost power and he's using precious phone juice to show his status. It continues:
"I don't know how much longer I have, but the [expletive] storm is coming. However, I'm not without defense," he says in the video, holding up what appears to be a rifle wrapped with duct tape. "[Expletive] ready. Let's do it."
We need the rest of the context in the video, but I am guessing it was about preventing looters, not attacking a government office complex.
In a post in April, he wrote, "God i love gun shows."
Out of order and out of context, but that makes for a powerful ending to the article. Well thought out, but obvious.
I feel that too many "cooperatives" painting an unquestioning narrative. He's young, enthusiastic about weapons, military manner and has anxieties about fitting-in. Perhaps Oswalds are created to control the levels of public anxiety because they know sensible legislation would could and should be passed immediately, meanwhile the legislative culture allegedly divided gives time to groom more Oswalds.
I don't trust anything other than that photographers talent.
