There was a school shooting in Arlington, Texas. The shooter, an 18 year-old male, has been identified but is apparently still on the run. Police say the weapon has not been recovered yet, so they don’t know what make, model, or caliber. Nothing I’ve read even indicates whether it was a semiauto or revolver.
But the ATF claims to be at the school to “trace” the weapon and determine how the shooter obtained it.
At. The. School. An unrecovered weapon.
They ain’t tracing shit. They’re at the school mugging for the cameras for PR purposes.
The suspect is 18. A quick search doesn’t turn up any indication that he was a prohibited person. It’s Texas; it’s entirely possible he bought it in a perfectly lawful transaction.
