Well, the NRA is probably the leading voice in keeping guns readily available to Americans, so there's a good chance that if it weren't for the NRA, this person wouldn't have been able to get a gun and would have had to use a knife instead.
...or just stayed at home yelling homophobic slurs into his headset playing COD like the rest of the people in countries that don't let peeps like him play with guns.

NRA is one of the leading voices in telling US citizens that they need to start a civil war because (((they))) are coming for your guns and if you don't shoot first (((they))) will disarm you and kill you and rape your kids.

Shooter was ID'd

"My first memory is violence and conflict,” he said. “That’s my first memory. And no one will believe me. That’s one of the reasons people don’t think I’m serious.”

Was diagnosed with mental health issues at age 14 and was barred from trying to join the US Military due to it.

As soon as he began it after feeling an adrenaline rush and injuring the one student he felt disgusted with himself and turned himself into a nearby teacher.

As much as I think the NRA are horrible hypocrites who constantly get in the way of gun reform for personal gain, blaming them for this preemptively is rather hasty and awful, especially considering these new details.

Also mind control. I ended up using that alongside the aforementioned ion blaster plus fire beam combo and it was rather effective to say the least. by the end, I was headcanoning the rebel fleet tracking me by following the trail of burned out hulks.

Still got fucked up by the flagship, though. Holy shit, it's so much worse than it was in vanilla FTL.

Fire-beam really is a sadistic and fun weapon. Have some rapid firing weapons (preferably Ion) to take down the shields and then start setting stuff on fire. For a risky maneuver teleport Rock crew onto the ship.

The Bio-beam that one of the Slug ships starts with is similar but faster. Take down the med-bay and you can wipe out most crews (as long as the shield is down for a moment) quickly.

Then there's the Vulcan... It is the single most destructive weapon in the game. A gatling gun that slowly picks up firing speed. If you can survive half a minute in the fight without getting the weapon disabled it will chew through any shields the enemies might have and though the tougher opponents require a secondary weapon (like a beam-drone or something)

Lots of viable playstyles in the game though, that's a good thing as none of the ships are worthless though some (like the Stealth ships) require skills AND luck to get upgrades since the starting form is not that good. Basically, Magikarp thingy going on there.

I've gotten back into FTL: Faster Than Light recently. Holy fuck, is fire barrels of fun. Set the enemy ship ablaze and watch the resulting inferno slowly destroy its systems and overwhelm the crew until they eventually burn/suffocate. I can't believe I never tried that before back in the day.
