A fine little city, I've only stopped there a couple of times. It used to be a big lumber town, but that all went away when the people there became less important than the Spotted Owls.
Now Roseburg is in the news again, reasons not of it's own choosing. A mass murder by firearm just took place there, at Umpqua Community College.
For unknown reasons, the authorities are hiding the name of the shooter, who was killed when counter-attacked by the police. No point in speculating about the shooter just yet, but we might speculate as to why the name hasn't been released, since a Court has already issued a search warrant for that deceased's home and the crime happened almost 7 hours ago.
It might have something to do with this. Yes, gun control. The Sheriff of Douglas County is a staunch defender of the 2A, and the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown is not. Gov. Brown was whisked to Roseburg by helicopter this morning by the State Police, who were probably looking to take over this investigation so that the details could be put to "proper use" promoting Bloomberg's gun-grabbing agenda. My guess is that Sheriff Hanlin told the State Police to piss up a rope and the internecine fight was on.
I'll keep an eye on this for my readers.
