Portland mall shooter rumored to have worn mask; Anonymous fears crackdown


Predictably, gun control advocates wasted no time whatsoever in politicizing the shooting at a Portland, Ore., mall today. In an unusual wrinkle, conflicting reports that the shooter wore a mask of some sort have some concerned about a push for mask control.

Details of the mall shooting are still forthcoming, but many on Twitter reported that the shooter was wearing a white mask. Some called it a hockey mask, while others cited an emergency dispatcher referring to a Guy Fawkes mask — the mask made famous by the movie “V for Vendetta” and now associated with Anonymous. Concern for the shooting victims was put on hold in favor of speculation over a mask crackdown.

Great, the shooter in Oregon was wearing the Guy Fawkes mask from V for Vandetta…Crackdown on Anonymous & those masks coming up…

To be clear: just the suggestion that it was an #Anonymous mask in #Oregon shooting is pretext to crack-down on others who wear it.

A Guy Fawkes mask, huh? That can mean only one thing — the shooter must have been a Tea Party member. Right, Brian Ross?

Strange, the MSM isn’t speculating that the Mall shooter was an anonymous member, even though they were reportedly wearing a Guy Fawkes mask

Again, police have not confirmed any details of the shooting. According to witnesses, the shooter might have been wearing all black clothing, camouflage, body armor, a hockey mask, a Guy Fawkes mask and a Friday the 13th mask and been carrying a rifle and a machine gun.

#ClackamasShooting guy was in a Friday the 13th mask NOT a Guy Fawkes. This is random act of senseless violence. Not an #Anonymous act.

Reporter on @andersoncooper just said that he heard the shooter was wearing a “Jason” mask, like in the Friday the 13th movie….

Will the media rush to judgment and investigate the possible Anonymous connection? It’s been hours; can we consider it progress that the Tea Party hasn’t been fingered yet?
