When I first heard the report the shooter had an automatic weapon, I told my wife it was very unlikely. I thought it was just someone pulling a trigger fast. But the videos being shown on the news are definitely reflecting an automatic weapon.
But how can that be? It's illegal for Joe Citizen to possess an automatic weapon without clearing extensive government hurdles. And certainly it's inconceivable that this lunatic had an illegal weapon. Why, that would be illegal!
I wait with great interest to see what comes out of the search the law enforcement people are conducting at the shooter's residence right now. Maybe he was just a lunatic, since the news is saying he was "known to police." It's not likely he was an islamist, but given who he chose as a target, his motivation may have been political.
Here we go again.
Hillary Clinton is already blaming the NRA for what happened. Other Democratic politicians are bleating the same tune in unison. I am always amazed at the stupidity these people display. "Let's make a law against gun ownership. That will solve the problem of criminals using guns, as they will surely obey our laws."
In other news, the march of Islam continues:
Canada had an Islamic terror attack this weekend. A Somali who came in as a refugee went on a stabbing and "run 'em over" spree.
And there was another attack in France, with a knife wielding Islamic "Immigrant" carving up people in Marseilles. He managed to injure a number of pedestrians and kill two young women before a soldier shot him dead. ISIS is lauding the killer as a member of their organization.
I notice the black guy walking into a white church and shooting everybody up just got a brief clip this past week, if it got that at all. The shooter left a "manifesto" in his vehicle, announcing his actions were "revenge" for the Charleston church shootings. Doesn't seem to matter , since he was black and the victims were white. Also, there's the awkward fact that the shooter was a new "immigrant" from Sudan. Don't want to be racist and mention that.
