I don’t think anyone but by Gods grace comes out of this and probably wounded. Thats a small place with 9 gunman. I can’t see how time plays into this, they don’t want anything but to kill people, they are not gonna change their mind, that would be a first. I don’t get these people at all. This is all for appearance and media prolonging it?
