"[N]ow we wait," read the clip's caption as the rock band KMFDM's song Stray Bullet played in the background. A blue duffle bag sat on the ground. An emoji of the gay Pride flag was featured in the TikTok page's bio and an image of an anime girl was selected as the profile picture's avatar. In another TikTok video, the account used the hashtag "genderfluid."

If you cannot master simple questions such as, "Am I a boy or a girl?" then concepts like, "You shall not murder," are likely going to be a bigger stretch.  We are already way past the random distribution of trans mass murderers for the last several years. 

Fortunately, he only used a handgun and a pump-action shotgun.  Those are practically "safety guns" from the overheated rhetoric coming out of the assault weapon banners.
