Was apparently a convicted felon who passed a background check and got some sort of license from Illinois to buy a gun. He then applied for a CHL and he did not pass as his fingerprints matched I guess his old name in MS where he was an ex felon.

So the police sent him a letter telling him to voluntarily turn in his gun.

We need more laws!!!!

Had a green laser sight. Look to see laws about them next.
Why he was not arrested by FBI and charged with a felon with firearm?
Because that would mean that we don't need more gun laws, we just need to enforce the ones we have.

"(The shooter) just went ballistic," John Probst, who works at Henry Pratt and was in the building at the time told ABC. "[One victim] came running down; he was bleeding pretty bad."

Probst said he recognized the shooter as a coworker. Probst said he was "rolling down the aisles" with "a pistol with a laser on it."
This is exactly why I fought so hard to gain permission to carry at work. It's ironic that we were forced to watch the "Run, Hide, Fight" training video this week at the plant.
My work does not have 30.06/30.07 signs posted, so carrying would not be a violation of the law. However, carry of firearms in the building is prohibited per the employee manual (but not with 30.06/30.07 language), so it would serve as a justification to termination. Fortunately, I work from home most of the time.
