#1 Incident took place at around 1:00 a.m. ET. Falls well within the 'nothing good happens after 11:00 pm.' rule.

#4 Inspired by that Crusius fellow ? These people do more damage to gun-rights than the democrat lobbies.

#5 Dqyton Daily News is live-blogging here, including live television reports.

Number of injured is up to 27.

The police know who the dead shooter is, but are not ready to reveal it to the public.

The downtown Oregon district is very lively, and well patrolled by uniformed police. They heard the shots and ran there within a minute, quickly stopping the vicious idiot.

As an aside, I was at a blues festival in a nearby community put on by the Dayton blues society. At least one of the bands there regularly plays in the Oregon district.

#8 Things were going rather badly for the left of late (Mueller, Epstein, Baltimore).

There always seem to be mass shootings under those circumstances.

#9 Connor Betts, of Bellbrook, Ohio

Betts described himself as offering “extensive customer service experience” and described himself as “good under pressure. Fast learner. Eager to overachieve.” But his employment history consisted of service positions.

According to Daily Beast, Betts’ sister, Megan, 21, and an unidentified male “were found shot in a car” near the mass shooting scene. On Facebook, Megan Betts wrote that she was a “tour Guide at Missoula Smokejumper Visitor Center” who “Studies at Wright State University Department of Biological Sciences.”

Shooting was focused around Ned Peppers. The Ned Peppers’ website describes it as a “traditional western-ish themed bar located right in the heart of the Oregon District in Dayton Ohio.”

According to a LinkedIn page in his name, Connor Betts was a crew member at Chipotle Mexican Grill starting in 2017 in Centerville, Ohio.

#10 Dayton Shooter Identified, Was Registered Democrat, His Sister And Her Boyfriend Also Found Shot

He was a registered Democrat, last voting as a Democrat in 2018. You can check it under the Green County, Ohio voter lookup here. There is no indication that politics had anything to do with his actions as of now. But he wasn’t pro-Trump or GOP, from what it appears.

My next question.... was his sister and/or her boyfriend Trump supporters? What about the nightclub, is it in a "Trump" area?

#11 It’s reported that someone grabbed the shooters rifle and killed him with it.

#12 Gun control is not going to stop anything. McVeigh took out a Federal building with a box truck full of fertilizer. Instead the establishment needs to focus on America and not Central America.

#13 They're hooked on end-of-the-world and woke politics. Those that get killed along the way are collateral damage that can be used for politics.
