Gunman Opens Fire on Florida School Board Meeting Before Killing Himself

This is horrible, and especially personal in some sense, as I'm sometimes in nearly identical situations at work (formal meetings, public events, etc.).

See, "
Florida Gunman Blames 'Wealthy' in Facebook Message." And, "Video Captures Man Confronting School Board Before Shooting":
With news cameras rolling, a 56-year-old gunman entered a school board meeting in Florida on Tuesday and took several members of the board hostage, then fatally shot himself during a shootout with a security guard.

The episode was captured on video and broadcast on News 13 in Panama City, which ran several clips of the incident, including one in which the gunman fires a shot at a board member.

One extended clip shows the man, identified as Clay A. Duke, calmly walk up to a podium at the front of the room with a pistol after painting a mysterious red encircled “V” on the wall.

If as stated this was an act committed to get back at the "Wealthy" then one might hope that Leftists and their fellow travelers in the democrat party will take responsibility for causing these things to happen. It would seem from a number of news reports that they bear the burden of their own actions and those they cause to take these actions. It does seem that the "Wealthy" has become the new "Black" to the Left not withstanding their adoration of the Kennedys, Rockefellers, et al.
