Not about lone wolves per se, put a good illustration how fruitless Red Flag laws and gun control is when one is bent on destruction. The Philadelphia shooter.

“Hill’s history in the adult criminal justice system began in 2001 when he was 18 and was arrested with a gun that had an altered serial number.
Public records show that he has been arrested about a dozen times since turning 18, and convicted six times on charges that involved illegal possession of guns, drug dealing, and aggravated assault. He has been in and out of prison; the longest sentence handed him came in 2010, when a federal judge gave him a 55-month term.

“And, his record would indicate, he does not like to go to prison. In 2008, he was convicted of escaping, fleeing from police, and resisting arrest. Along the way, he beat criminal charges on everything from kidnapping to attempted murder.
Hill also spent time in federal prison. In 2008, he pleaded guilty to federal firearms violations after he was caught with a Smith & Wesson .357 and later a Taurus PT .45 semiautomatic. His prior felony convictions should have barred him from owning those weapons. U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond sentenced him to four years and seven months in prison.

From Townhall:
“The gunman is allegedly a serial criminal. He has a record with the law. He's not supposed to have firearms in his possess but, as gun rights advocates have long said, criminals don't suddenly wake up and decide to follow the law. Passing a new gun law isn't suddenly going to make them decide to follow the rules.”

So, we are left with two radial choices. Either confiscate every gun in America and leave millions of women defenseless against the rapists, abusers, and those who are hell bent on doing harm as well as hell bent on getting a gun no matter the consequences or lock up every criminal for life.

Ok, there is a third choice. One thing for certain is that by definition a criminal will never follow any gun law written and not be deterred by a thousand more gun laws. That’s why they are known as criminals.

Lone Wolf Killers and Ecofascism:

“And our progressives, including the Democratic candidates, declare that the real problem for such indigenous terror is the presence of a persistent and burgeoning number of ‘racist’ and ‘white supremacist’ Americans. According to these leftwingers, the problem now is so bad that all of President Trump’s supporters can be classed as ‘white supremacists’. It is this massive body of misfits that spawns the killers of innocents among us. For such progressives, America is still a racist country overrun by white supremacists who continue to deny people of color their legal and constitutional rights. These assertions are ludicrous on their face as argued by among others..” —Dr. Rebane

“In essence, the Post is asserting that “the mainstream environmental movement [that] has moved strongly in the direction of social justice” is being hijacked. To be clear, said assailants most assuredly had racist views, and there’s no defending those views. However, the purpose of the Washington Post piece is to insulate the totalitarianism of the real ecofascist movement that seeks to destroy capitalism, redistribute Americans’ wealth, and, yes, depopulate the planet. It’s destruction by alternative means.

“The key thing to understand here is that ecofascism is more an expression of white supremacy than it is an expression of environmentalism,” claims Friends of the Earth’s Michelle Chan. Nothing could be more distorted and further from the truth.”
