Interesting.

Supposedly some guy walked into a terminal at Los Angeles International and shot the place up with a semi-automatic rifle.  Couldn't have been an AR15 of course, because the California politicians long ago made possession of such weapons there illegal. Clearly, if the politicians have made a law banning a certain type of rifle, then that rifle could not be used in a crime in that state.



This is good news for Obama, at any rate.  People have been talking about the colossal failure of everything associated with his "health care" program and now the talking heads will be distracted. His Excellency can posture and hold some political theater about the evil of guns and gun owners.  They are probably popping the champagne corks in the White House right now.  Carney is doubtless practicing his "sad and noble" face in front of the mirror so he can get it just right when he deplores gun ownership in this country at his next news session.


The photos of the frightened herd flowing out of the terminal would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. For all the world, they looked like a flock of sheep that have been startled.  The "witness" on Fox News is saying "people were running and screaming."  He says an old lady fell down and he couldn't help her up. I guess it was "sauve qui peut."  Chivalry may not be dead in Texas but it seems to be moribund in the People's Democratic Republic of California.




It's interesting to note the L.A. Police Chief has repeatedly stated in the past that security was so tight at L.A.X.  no one need worry about an "incident."  Yet it seems this shooter just walked in and let go. 





 One TSA type was shot,( according to the conference though they clearly have no idea what has really gone on) but several were injured. Fox says they were injured in the panic when the mob started running away. None of the TSA people seem to have tried to stop the shooter, and  they got trampled trying to flee. These TSA "officers" are being described as "heroes." I guess the California definition of heroic is somewhat different than mine.



The news conference at the airport is on now.  All of these instances result in news conferences where the police laud one another for their "heroic" actions.  It reminds me of when the swarm of police shot the unarmed woman with mental problems in D.C.  

All the little bureaucrats are having their say at the conference now. The current drone is saying "the city is standing tall."  OK.  I notice when each pencil pusher gets up to the microphone he or she spells their last name so the newspapers will get it right.  They make their obligatory obeisance to the wonderful job the police did. The FBI guy is making a laudatory speech now.  Must be a tough time to be in the FBI, since Lon Horiuchi  retired they really haven't had a serving role model to base their behavior on.  But they can always remember the good old days.  Waco, Ruby Ridge and Janet Reno will always be there for them.



If only Piers Morgan from CNN had been at the airport, none of this would have happened. 



Well, I suppose I'll check the Weather Channel and see what's going on around the mountains in that respect.

  1. At least the Fox Business channel is still covering the Obama debacle. 'bout had all I could take of Shepherd Smith trying to 'guess' what is going on in CA. But you are right....it couldn't be an AR 15, could it?

    I enjoy your blog...have been lurking for awhile. Blessings!

    1. Hey, Cotton Lady. Usually I'd be amused watching a talking head trying to dance between the rain drops, but after awhile it does get tedious.

      No, no chance of it being an AR-15 because Barbara and Diane got laws passed out there banning them. That settled that of course.....

      Thanks for the comment.

  2. I was putting in fences all day, except for this morning when I tried to kill my mother. Anyway on my way back from the backside of the hayfield I heard the news on the radio say it was an AR15.

    Just got in so I have some reading to do.

    Thanks for the update!!!

    1. But how can this be? Everybody knows that if you make a law banning a certain type of weapon, the criminals will certainly obey it!

      Why did you try to kill your mother. That isn't a very good filial attribute.

  3. Such a sad turn of events. I have friends who live in the LA area. So far no one was at LAX at the time that I know of. Several are Flight Crew members. Just remember "The Government Knows What's Best For The U.S.".....Idiots.

    1. Any time you rely on somebody else to do something critical on your behalf you are really asking for trouble. When the "somebody" is a government drone, you're doomed.

  4. I particularly liked the part about their not being any AR-15 in cali any more since they have been outlawed. Just another reason to prep, people are crazy and stupid.

    1. The people running California and their ilk are not living in the real world. They honestly believe that all these idiotic laws they keep passing make a difference. It's "The Emperor's New Clothes" with a modern twist.

  5. Government doesn't always know what's best. That is for sure!

    The closest tragedy to me was when a high school drop out went into a local mall, and shot random people. One of my sister's close friend's mom was shot and killed. I was pregnant with one of my boys at the time. My emotions were crazy! The gunman Robert Hawkings shot himself after killing others. Such a sad case!

    1. Alissa, that can happen any time, any where. Now that killing women and kids is acceptable, the world is an even more dangerous place. When I was young even bank robbers sent women and children out of the bank if they got trapped inside. Now, the feeling seems to be that killing women and kids is better because you get more news coverage. When I go in a mall, I always have my pistol. I'm not relying on some one else to take care of my welfare and my wife. If you want it done right......

      I know that must have been really hard on you when you were expecting and all. I'm glad you were not there when it happened.
