If true, this association will indicate (the still hypothetical and in need of further confirmations) involvement of the Russian intelligence services (“Spetsnaz”?) and the MOB-TOC in these incidents.
It is not the availability of guns that matters much. It is the availability of the skills and subjects of these services (mass killings as the Special Psychological, intimidating Operations) that matters; well paid and otherwise rewarded by the ultimate customers (mostly Putin?).
In other words, this is the Counterintelligence issue, more than any other. And it is one of the #Counterintelligence failures, which now become more and more visible.
The U.S. has gotten no reprieve from its epidemic of mass shootings. There have been at least 145 mass shootings so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive. https://t.co/3PZdqputDj pic.twitter.com/NLC2MCOo3T
