8 Last year there was a poll that showed a majority of Canadians trusted Trump with national security and the economy more than puss puss up there. They overwhelmingly preferred puss puss on a personal level though.

Wonder if that's changed at all.

22 This really goes way outside normal right/left politics. Canada has to be embarrassed of this buffoon.

Also, I'm normally pretty skeptical of conspiracies, but I genuinely think Justin Trudeau was fathered by Fidel Castro.

The resemblance is uncanny, the two families spent a lot of time together, he looks NOTHING like he purported father and Trudeau's mother was a known skank that got around.

114 My mother texted me this evening and asked me if I could pick her up at Enterprise Rental tomorrow because she was dropping the rental off (she was hit by another driver that ran a red light 3 days ago).

I said "Sure mom, did they already fix your car?"

My 73 year old mom replied "No, Enterprise pulled their discount for NRA members and I'll be damned if me or my insurance company gives them another f*cking penny."

I haven't heard my mom cuss in probably 10 years.

Jake Tapper a Former Spokesman for Handgun Control, Inc.?

So says Gateway Pundit, quoting an old news story identifying one "Jake Tapper" as a spokesman for Handgun Control, Inc. (which would later become the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence).

Now, I suppose it's possible that the Jake Tapper mentioned here is not the same Jake Tapper who a large number of cucky "conservatives" have homoerotic (at the very least) crushes on, but I've scanned Jake Tapper's twitter feed for a claim like this -- "Wrong Jake Tapper," that kind of thing -- and as far as I can tell he's just completely ignoring it.

And when someone in the media simply ignores a charge that they obviously have the power to respond to -- well, you can decide for yourself.

Of course, CNN did not disclose this before, during, or after its rowdy, Beer Hall Putsch-style "townhall," nor have they ever disclosed it, as far as I know.

By the way, a father and daughter have come forward to accuse CNN not of "scripting" questions as another Parkland student alleged, but at least of only soliciting a certain kind of opinion for their political advertisement masquerading as news.

Two victims of the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, have now come forward to say CNN producers filtered out opinions contrary to the rabid demands for gun control and confiscation that dominated the network’s Wednesday night town hall.

"I actually spoke to a CNN producer... the day after the shooting," Andrew Klein, father of Arianna Klein, a Douglas junior who survived the ordeal, told Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" Thursday night. "The producer insinuated to me they were looking for people who were willing to espouse a certain narrative."

Klein's daughter, Ariana, survived the shooting ordeal in which former student Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 students and adults.... Both Kleins attended Wednesday's listening session with President Donald Trump at the White House.

The narrative that CNN preferred, the senior Klein told host Laura Ingraham, "was taking the tragedy and turning it into a policy debate, and I read that as being a gun control debate ... the producer said, 'We are looking for people who want to talk about the policy implications for preventing future mass shootings.'"

I have to admit I'm enjoying see Jake Tapper's #FakeNewsConservative Twitter Bitches all wailing and gnashing their teeth at the Shock Revelation that Tapper is a biased liberal with an agenda.

Oh, and this is good stuff:



Here's Jake Tapper's defense, which seems pretty weak to me.




So what happened was:

1. The student said she had a question for Dana Loesch, but then said she would ask it of Nelson.

2. The question actually accused "politicians," including Bill Nelson (a Democrat), of being "puppets" of the NRA and of taking "blood money."

3. Jake decided that this question would have to be held for Dana, even though the student herself said she didn't mind asking it of Nelson.

Before you say "But Bill Nelson wants to ban all guns so the question isn't applicable" -- well, no, that's not his stated position. The crowd cheered at the idea of banning all semi-automatic rifles; is that Bill Nelson's position? Certainly not -- not if he wants to get re-elected.

So is he a puppet of the NRA? Would he have offered a more nuanced take on gun control, had he been permitted to answer?

Has he ever taken NRA money, or sought their endorsement, or at least their non-opposition?

We could have heard this thoughts on this, but fortunately for us, Jake stepped in to keep Nelson from having to explain if he felt he had gun on his hands for opposing the banning of all semi-automatic rifles.

See what Jake is doing here? Moderating. But notice that his excuse as to why he let students accuse Marco Rubio of essentially being a mass-murderer himself is that he didn't feel it was his role to step in and keep these students from having their say.

But in this case, where a Democrat is asked about why "senators" are puppets of the NRA, he feels that it is the right time to step in and do some moderation and deny a grieving student her voice.

Oh -- and this is interesting, no?

So my question is: What exactly does it feel like to have blood on your hands? I want a detailed description. Does the metaphorical blood feel all squishy? Or has it become sticky? Do you constantly fantasize about killing yourself, as you ought to do? Do you dream of going to hell, where you are headed, as you experience the sensation of blood on your hands?

37 CNN itself is now reporting that there were a total of three, maybe four, the reporting is a bit confusing, Broward County police officers on site.

That is important because of the claims that the Cowardly Lion could not go after the shooter himself because the standard procedure is four officers in a diamond shape. This of course ignores the and if four people can't be there in time, one person rushes the shooter.

So it appears there were multiple people there. We may well be approaching incompetence so high as to get around immunity.

44 The truth will never completely come out as long as the FNM is in charge of most of the outlets of dissemination.

And that is the reason why the FNM must be taken down and or destroyed as it currently exists.

Trying to change it from within would be nie impossible and take too long.

Unless some conservatives can manage to take over many large markets and start presenting the truth on a daily basis we are doomed to try to fight the lies.

And if the GOP folds we're screwed. It will be civil war time if the GOP caves and Trump signs a universal back ground check bill or some other restrictive scheme.

Bullshit. Into their hat of questions, they always manage to pull out the ones the producers would have asked had they completely excluded public input. They would never allow random questions or questioning. Badthoughts might get into the public forum, and that's the absolute last thing they want.

News orgs are propaganda machines some of which hope to make money. Right now, CNN and (MS)NBC are worse than Pravda ever was. Talk about Russian collusion, CNN and (MS)NBC have been the epicenter for years.

Here's to hoping DACA gets replaced with Dems going after gun control.

I was getting worried Trump and Republicans were going to cut a shitty deal.

135 Excuse my ignorance, but I don't even grasp what all this gun-grabbing business is even about. Didn't the Supreme Court rule about 10 years ago that the Second Amendment trumped state gun-control laws, and if any state went overboard, their laws would be struck down as unconstitutional? I thought the legal argument was basically over, and they lost.

Why the need for the snark?

I hope you are correct. That said, there are a lot of people who believe otherwise.

We are not a majority. Plus I did not say they would win. Just how they would proceed in answer to a question about what they would do in the cities to confiscate firearms from felons.

And let's not get into how the military would balk at fighting citizens. There are a number of assumptions about that that are not guaranteed to happen.

And there are ways to frame the confiscations such that a large portion of the public would not take a side.

It's worked in a number of attacks by the Federal Government in the past. And this time they would be very serious with a law to give them at least the appearance of legitimacy.

No, but what they'll do is like Australia where its officially banned, but lots of people keep them hidden.

So if someone breaks into your home, you have to worry if shooting them will put you in prison.

And you won't be able to go to a gun range, buy bullets, etc. Which is what the Left wants and will count as a victory.

I could see states passing draconian gun laws and our "conservative" judges that have painted themselves into a corner of states rights federalism and against any judicial activism, going along.

.Really? They why did NY and CT get only a 10-15% compliance rate with their gun and magazine registration schemes after Sandy Hook?

Tens of thousands of instant felons looking at 5 years for each high cap magazine who refused to register them.

CT knows exactly where the non compliant people are because they have had a gun registration data base since 1993. they know who did and did not register their guns but they have not arrested a single person because they are afraid.

I don't believe anyone could predict what will actually happen when it comes down to the wire.

Everyone eventually reaches that point where they must make a choice and take a stand regardless of the consequences.

It will depend a lot on how they go about it.

There are ways they could approach confiscation so that the counter action would be minimized or spread too far so that they could be overwhelmed.

If it happens quickly and in a overwhelming fashion many may be convinced it's not worth trying to fight.

Look at history and how many people did surrender their firearms most knowing inside what would happen but hoping they were wrong.

People need to make a decision in their heart and mind NOW and not when someone comes to the door.

that's been ordered to go out and raid homes for guns night after night
and colleagues are taking hits doing the same thing, the same "leaving
their kids...orphaned" mentally takes effect.

268 Considering there were multiple armed cops cowering in fear and hiding from a teenaged gunman that didn't know what the hell he was doing, something tells me it will only take a few incidents before that stops dead in its tracks and law enforcement conveniently decides to go on strike if there is a gun round up.

And that's another thing: In the 1993 film "In the Line of Fire," the John Malkovich character builds a gun out of plastic in his home model-shop, to avoid the metal detectors. That was definitely do-able back in 1993 -- but now in 2018 and beyond, it is EASILY do-able, with 3D printing.

276 I feel odd talking about this.

First, 5% of all gun owners is still a pretty big number. And if they are motivated, that is a pretty dangerous thing for tyrants.

Then there is the assumption that those gun owners would all be passively waiting for a squad to arrive at their individual doorsteps. Again, if they are motivated then we are likely to see, well, if anyone has ever read Unintended Consequences by John Ross then you know where I am thinking this could go.

And once things start happening, I think more people will start joining that core 5%.

You're making too flat a statement on this.

It will depend on where and who they start with and how it's done.

You can't speak for anyone other than yourself with any surety. and even then you might be surprised.

Myself, if they're sneaky they might not alarm me enough and if they get me away from home they can easily take me and what I have.

If they try busting in, they'll have a fight on their hands but i'm not immune from gas or flash bangs.

So it's a who knows sort of thing.

I do know that something will happen if Universal Background Checks is passed and signed. That's for sure.

There will be a LOT of people who won't go register their firearms.

Then it will be a waiting game. You won't be able to carry without fear of being searched, or if an accident happens and your house can catch fire and they'll discover your firearms that way. The Gov can be very patient.

And don't forget that this is a liberal bureaucracy. Maybe they'll do it in defiance of any thing said by Trump?

Then it really will be a war.

In this hypothetical, will I die on my feet or live on my knees? Which choice would allow me to approach my father, God test his soul, and say I did the right thing? What about my kids?

I am sorry this turned morbid. I do think that while it is true no one will know exactly what will happen, that does not mean it will be a surrender. It just means we do not know exactly.

There are 100,000 gang members in Chicago alone. And they probably have more than one gun each. They may hand them over, but they know where to get the next. But my guess is those 14,000 agents would have a helluva a time. And that other gang members would show up from other cities. I really don't know. Just thinking...

346 I think nevershankles is upset because he isn't sure whether he could stand up to an illegal unconstitutional seizure of his property and take away his rights and is mad because others seem to be sure they can.

It will depend on a lot of factors.

Lexington and Concord succeeded because the Brits were arrogant and stupid. They didn't believe the civilians would stand up to them.

One note: the Revolutionary war probably lasted longer because they used mercenaries against the colonists. This aggravated the colonists to no end and made them more willing to fight. Plus the mercenaries didn't fight as well as they would if it had been their country. (maybe)

I pray that Trump has the sense to deny a universal back ground check law.

347 It's already totally illegal for felons to have guns.

And yet right now as we speak the ghettos of American are full to bursting with felons who have massive arsenals. Everyone knows this. The cops knows this.

AND YET, the cops do absolutely NOTHING to attempt to "confiscate" the guns of felons. If a felon happens to get caught red-handed at a crime scene with a gun, then yeah, they'll confiscate it. But the cops do NOT -- nor do they have the right to -- kick in the doors of felons and search their houses for guns. Even though probably well over 50% of felons in bad neighborhoods most definitely have guns.

Now, in some putative future gun-ban scenario, multiply that by a hundred. A thousand. There's no way in a zillion years that cops will be kicking in every American's door to search their homes for guns:

a. The cops simply don't have the manpower. Nothing even close to the manpower;

b. The search itself would violate the Constitution, totally aside from the second amendment; SEARCHING for guns violates the FOURTH Amendment.

c. It would be trivial for most gun owners to hide the guns, so they couldn't be found even if there was a search.

d. The police for the most part would not willingly participate in a left-wing power grab, since most cops are not left-wingers.

e. Finally, the "Cold dead fingers" crowd would actively resist. All it takes is a few token resistors to inspire the nation. There would be millions of resistors. The whole confiscation system would quickly fall apart.

J.J. Abrams, Who's Directing Episode 9 of Star Wars: Anyone Who Criticizes Star Wars Is Just "Threatened" By Women;
Joss Whedon No Longer Attached to "Batgirl" Project

First, on Joss Whedon. Most articles use vague wording like that he's "departed" the long-threatened Batgirl film; Grace Randolph says "fired."

She notes the three reasons he's likely "no longer attached to" or "fired from" Batgirl:

1, he got into fights with Kevin Feige over Age of Ultron, and that film disappointed.

2, he re-shot Zack Snyder's version of Justice League, and that film is, reportedly, a total mess and would probably have ended the DCEU if Wonder Woman had not been a big cushioning hit.

3, although Joss Whedon continues to play the Sensitive Male Feminist card, and thus come up as an obvious choice to direct a Grrrl power movie like Batgirl, his ex-wife's revelations about his use of the Sensitive Male Feminist card to cheat on her and score easy ****y sort of makes his association with a female-based property questionable.

You gotta know that if Batgirl were real, Joss Whedon would be inviting her up to his apartment to see his Chinese etchings and his coffin coffee table.

He's a one-trick dick and I'll be glad when he get shit out of the lower intestine of the film industry.

Meanwhile, J.J. Abrams is resorting to using the the public relations defense that worked so well forGhostbusters: If you don't like our stupid corporate art-by-committee cashgrab, you're misogynist and bigot.

"Their problem isn’t Star Wars, their problem is being threatened," Abrams told IndieWire when asked about a social media group that admitted to deliberately trying to bring down The Last Jedi‘s Rotten Tomatoes score.

"Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find almost anything you want to in Star Wars. If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in Star Wars," Abrams added. "You can probably look at the first movie that George [Lucas] did [Star Wars: A New Hope] and say that Leia was too outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with anything can find the problem. The internet seems to be made for that."

I hope the Ghostbusters Defense works equally well for Disney's Star Wars IP.

The problem might have something to do with producer Kathleen Kennedy explicitly re-making Star Wars into a feminism-boosting fantasy. The Force is Female, you know.

As Gandhi once said: Fuck all these people.

Posted by: Soothsayer -- Fake Commenter at February 23, 2018 04:23 PM (4Nwi3)

I haven't seen but bits and pieces of any of the new movies.

I never even got around to watching all of the original series, although I've seen more than a few of them.

I particularly enjoyed the episode where Spock attempted to make some sort of grenade out of what looked like a can with dry ice in it.

I did read about some of the idea behind Star Trek and that seemed a lot more interesting to me than any of the shows. Especially the back story of the Vulcans. Turns out they embraced the whole logic thing because they're actually hyper-emotional beings, to the point where they were constantly at war with one another. They almost destroyed their entire planet because of it. Then the guy came along with the thing and they evolved. I'd rather see a movie about that back story than trannies in space or whatever they're planning now.

69 I think Annihilation was good; a female-centred movie without pandering (much) to SJW. they did make one character unnecessarily a lesbian (her love for poon had no bearing on the plot) and the racial mix was clear affirmative-action, but those nods to Current Year were so obviously intrusive they can be ignored.

What did make sense was why they sent in an all-female team. They'd sent in male teams and hardly anyone came back, so - yeah - some pointy haired boss was likely going to grab that straw eventually.

Also, that they're going into The Cronenberg - Giger Dimension means we're dealing with body horror here, and this has a resonance for women. See also, Alien and more so Aliens. And Splice.

145 Actually the first Star Wars (episode 4? i get mixed up) kinda laid it on a bit about leia being super smarter than the guys and braver also.

That was one of the beginning movies that had that theme. If it hadn't been for the cool effects and space battles it would not have done as well. I think the next movie (Empire strikes back?) toned that shit down a bit which is why everyone likes it better than most of the others.

Not saying women are weak but the incessant drum beat of having gurrls out smart and out fight the boys all the time gets real old when you know that's false and not necessary for the story.

And since then boys have been pretty much taken some big hits along the way in school and in how much help they get compared to the girls.

Gee do you think that maybe that's why boys feel so little valued and that their thoughts and ways of doing things disdained and mocked that we have so many confused and angry boys running around shooting people and places up? And lately of trying to become girls so that they too can feel appreciated and wanted by society. A society that tells them in so many ways that men suck and aren't necessary so shut up and sit down you toxic boy you.

Its all in-your-face. It frequently doesn't make sense for the plot. Its all "diversity" and "inclusion" for their own sake, or the remaking of beloved IPs in some kind of feminist style.

After awhile, the pervasive misandry and virtue signalling preaching really starts to grate. And there is no refuge except to withdraw from everything (which is what they want).

Hollywood libertarians seem to only claim being libertarian so long as it suits them. Joe Rogan has a similar bent to him (though I actually like Joe and listen to his podcast all the time). He'll claim to be a libertarian, but also says he thinks Obama was a great president. Whenever he gets called out for it, he says, "I think he was great for what he represented."

Of course, he usually says this in the episodes where he's very stoned and not just his normal average everyday stoned, so I take his thought process with a grain of salt. Being a "lolbertarian" is about as close to conservative as you can get in Hollywood without being blackballed.

161 I actually got a feminist twat to make me a bet on the toxic effect of last jedi. That the multiple insults levelled to original trilogy fans would have no effect at all on viewership of Ranger Solo (I bet it wouldn't be first for its opening weekend).

That's no certainty, but I thought it was interesting. Solo is in theory supposed to appeal to original series fans, but those are the people Disney pissed off with its abominable treatment of Luke Skywalker, and men generally. So I think many of us are not going to show for Solo. The question is, will Disney's new, improved soviet justice warrior crowd show up when there's no obvious cause (neither GRRL POWER nor the nonsense surrounding Black Panther) driving it.

I got her to bet me an equal amount that I personally wouldn't see it for a year because she thinks I'm more addicted to star wars than my own self respect.

And she thinks she cannot possibly lose.

I recommend this series from Mauler. There's two more parts, which humorously makes the point that discussing everything wrong with TLJ takes twice as long as the movie, and he still has to skip some minor stuff.

Except we don't need them to display courage and skill, but more "fight like a trapped rat".
It's not a question of braving the gunfire, but being confronted with it and having no other way out. Sadly, I expect some bystander injuries and fatalities will come with this, but I suspect the body count would be reduced.

Even if it only a small portion of the program, you know what they say, a gallon of vanilla ice cream mixed with a tablespoon of dog shit tastes more like dog shit than vanilla ice cream. It doesn't take much to ruin it for me.

So, if a studio or director takes the time to tell me in advance that they are going to use their production to advance some stupid SJW agenda, I will gladly stay away. It is a whole big world out there, with lots of fun things to do. If JJ Abrams wants to ruin Star Wars, I say let the baby have his bottle. I'll be playing golf.

268 "Their problem isn't Star Wars, their problem is being threatened,"
Abrams told IndieWire when asked about a social media group that
admitted to deliberately trying to bring down The Last Jedi's Rotten
Tomatoes score.

"Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find almost anything you
want to in Star Wars. If you are someone who feels threatened by women
and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in
Star Wars," Abrams added. "You can probably look at the first movie that
George [Lucas] did [Star Wars: A New Hope] and say that Leia was too
outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with
anything can find the problem. The internet seems to be made for that."

305 I haven't seen the latest Star Wars but the clips, reviews, and analysis I've seen make it look like something really lousy and I want no part of it.

Usually Abrams films start out big because his visuals and directing are dazzling. But after a few days people remember the movie and go "you know, this part was pretty dumb and that didn't make sense and it wasn't really very satisfying."

This time, fans went 'well that stunk' right out of the gate, and that's a bad sign.

Frankly, Adams seems to be doing his pet film school project of refilming the original trilogy his way, but bigger and more EPIC with grrl power and its just not very good.

320 About ten years ago, Disney was doing a massive expansion at DisneyWorld's Magic Kingdom. A new VP came in, looked at the plans -- some already under construction -- and said, "All this princess stuff is nice, but what do you have for boys?"

The immediate reaction was to change one attraction to the Seven Dwarves Mine Train, because apparently boys like the dwarves from Snow White. Never mind that's still a princess property...

The longer-term reaction was buying Marvel and LucasArts.

Inexplicably, they let the man-hating SJWs turn the Marvel comics into their private playgrounds, destroying their fan base. The movies did well, though, although bizarre licensing restrictions kept them from doing much with Marvel in the parks.

Even worse, they couldn't keep idiots from getting hold of Star Wars and doing as bad a job as Lucas did with the prequels. "Oh, we'll just reshoot the original film, but with an expressionless chick as the star. Oh! And we'll kill off one of the most popular characters!" They tossed Finn and Black Stormtrooper in so "boys will identify with these characters", but Finn is lame and B.S. is whiny and spends most of his time being rescued.

Then the second movie... all the mystery set up in the first is deflated, the returning Big Star is thrown away, and it mostly just doesn't make sense.

But... The Disneyland Star Wars expansion is supposed to open this year (I think), WDW expansion next January, and you sales are cranking along, so they haven't completely destroyed themselves.

But if the Star Wars movies keep being playgrounds for Hollyweird personalities more interested in working out their fetishes than telling a good story, they'll crash. And not even a beautifully done themed resort that feels like you're in space will sell rooms after that.

It was a cat and mouse in a warehouse, the actors didn't have unlimited ammo, and the setup and the fear was palpable. I remember for sure the one guy was so afraid to breathe for fear he'd be heard, so he held his breath.

But the less corporate political partnerships the better, it just goes 1000-1 against our side though. We need to be better about making these liberal organizations radioactive.

If anything, I could see corporate sponsors/partners being able to talk the NRA into a more "centrist" position much like Big Business does with Republicans and immigration. So it might be a good thing to just have an NRA with the only money coming in being from individuals committed to the 2nd Amendment.

342 Having more than just 1 or two SRO's on campus would mean that any shooter will have at least a few armed threats behind them or spread out thus increasing the threat and counterfire effectiveness.

There should also be some rethinking out they conduct fire/emergency evacuations. It seems that that teachers did not lead their students out of the classrooms. In an emergency the first person out of a classroom should be an adult so as to gauge the threat (fire, tornado, shooter whatever) and then guide the students accordingly.

When asshole hit the fire alarm teachers leaving the classroom would've been his first targets and the students would then know what was out side the door. Next there should be classes in the school drilling the kids on what to do in those cases.

Simply staying in the class room would've slowed the carnage down and if the doors could be locked from inside the number of dead would be a lot lower.

As to the SRO that stayed outside. He wasn't properly trained or vetted and why hasn't that asshole Sheriff resigned yet? He's the leader what happened is ALL his fault and if he had any honor he would be resigning along with the SRO that failed.

Let's have some calls for this jerk to be fired since he can't bring himself to do the right thing just like his deputy.

That's good storytelling.


And that's the point of a fight scene. Its not just to have action and excitement, its part of the storytelling. It has to be more than just violence or its as pointless as a sex scene in a story. Reveal something about characters, move the plot along, set the scene, tell us something about the story. Don't just have people hurting each other.

Same with Churches that start endorsing gay marriage. The actual church members leave and the gay activists certainly aren't filling the pews on Sunday Morning.

Usually these "corporate" events are caused by Twitter. Some retard tweets something and some 25 year old living in San Francisco manning the Twitter feed for MegaCorp makes a big call and somehow convinces the higher ups they better cave. It really is amazing how much of our culture is being changed over that stupid app.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at February 23, 2018 05:04 PM (39g3+)



I don't think they've worn out their welcome. Its just that Hollywood has no clue how to handle them. They only have two modes, nostalgiafest to the point of ridiculousness, or shoehorning in their newest cause du jour. They're not interested in telling a good story which might actually grow the franchise. They just want to check their boxes and think it will be good. Make sure its got nostalgia, make sure it has enough women, make sure it has enough minorities. Story? Huh?

372 Tombstone has its flaws, but what it showed in the gunfight was pretty much what happened. In fact, the bulk of the film was very much the way it took place, with the build up to the fight, and even the scene where Wyatt goes crazy at an ambush and just takes everyone out charging at them at the creek (everyone who was there said that's how it went).

The gunfight was not really at the OK corral, but it was near it. Gunfight at the photography studio (which was closer) doesn't really have the same cachet.

385 The thing is, Doc Holliday... there's no record of him ever shooting anyone before (or after) the Tombstone event. Everyone was scared of him because frankly he didn't care if he lived or died, but he didn't have a rep because of all the graves he filled. He was a mystery who seemed very intimidating and clearly did not mind being shot. If your opponent doesn't care if he makes it out of a fight, that's a bit more troubling than someone who wants to survive.

Yup.

One of the things about Wyatt Earp that made him so deadly was the guy apparently just never panicked. He'd draw, take aim, fire and hit. Then do the same thing again until everyone else was dead.

Never got a scratch on him.

Not saying he's a saint, something else the movie makes clear, but he was one-in-a-million.

409 I think Star Wars hits a spot for people because it was such a change from most everything else we'd seen for a while.

I know it's the first movie I ever walked out of feeling like my perceptions had changed somehow.

I was totally there in that galaxy fighting that war wherever the f**k it was.

And if you notice there wasn't a lot of blood and gore. Sure lots of action and guys falling down but no gratuitous violence.

It was like a big Saturday afternoon shootout between kids in the empty lot next door with lots of yelling and running and people shooting and getting shot and all sorts of fun.

Took all of us back to a more innocent time in our lives I think. Subconsciously?

The last 3 were received so badly because there weren't FUN.

No noble cause, no wisdom against sterile logic.

Ah well. We've all seen the elephant since then. We can't go back to our innocence.

With apologies to my Northern brethren, the guy is a yankee. I mean, his accent rivals that of Norm Abrams. It is grating to Southern ears. How the hell did this guy wind up as sheriff of a Florida county?

We have loads of half-backs here. I'm always amused when I ask them where they are from, and they say 'Florida'. I never let them off of the hook, I simply say, 'No, I mean originally'.

Having made a mess of NJ (or Nu Yawk), then despoiling FL, they are now here doing the same shit...and expecting us to be grateful.

It's unreal and it's spectacular.

100,000 people were subscribed to the reddit for that stuff - and who knows how many lurkers - before the SJWs shut it down.

X-----------

That should have been shut down. I'm no SJW, but I applaud them. That software is seriously dangerous for society. It's not just about porn. And people should be able to own their own image and not have it manipulated for some sick fantasy. Hope they make it a crime. And not just for porn, but everything.

Ya know, your brain doesn't know the difference. Chris Rock did something recently about his porn addiction and how it really messed him up. Anyway, there is too much porn out there, and people watch too much of it, and as a woman I see the negative implications of it. May be the only thing I will ever agree with Paltrow about.

Absolutely. He played his character as an ass, to a T.

He's also in another one of my favorite psych horror films: The Appointment (1981). I don't know why more people don't love that movie the way I do.

483 A universal background check is one in which all sales of a firearm are tracked and the participants checked for their qualifications to transfer said firearm.

The only way to make it effective is to have a registry of ALL firearms in the country so that every firearm comes with an ownership history.

Once you have registration you are a EO from having confiscation.

Germany, Russia, Britain, Japan, Australia.

All enacted firearms registration before confiscation. And enforced it using spies and informers to rat people out for owning a firearm.

They tried to push through a registry when Obama was President after Newtown. In my opinion, it was a big reason why Republicans won in 2014 and 2016. Before, Democrats had sort of left gun control alone.

CNN: Trump Shouldn't Call Psychopathic School Shooter a "Sicko" Because It's "Stigmatizing" to Psychopathic School Shooters

CNN is pretty determined that there is only one issue we'll be discussing here, and that is confiscating Americans' guns, and we will not be permitted to discuss mental health or keeping "sickos" from getting guns.


What a joke.

CNN goes so far as to accuse Trump of basically using the n-word.

From CNN:

"How helpful is calling a black person the n-word? Not only is it disrespectful, it fans racism," said Pat Corrigan, a distinguished professor of psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology who manages the National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment.

As you know, even though a lot of people called this sicko a psycho, and told the cops and FBI about it, they didn't do anything about it:

On the day after Thanksgiving, Cruz was at work at a Dollar Tree store. Rocxanne Deschamps’ son, Rock, 22, called 911 to report that an "adopted 19-year-old son" had possibly hidden a "gun in the backyard," according to a dispatcher’s notes. Rock Deschamps told law enforcement "there were no weapons allowed in the household"” the report said. It's unclear from the record whether sheriff's deputies conducted a search. The incident was classified as "domestic unfounded," which means a deputy didn't find proof to back up the claims.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was called again to the home four days later, when Rock said Cruz lashed out against the family that took him in, according to the Palm Beach deputy’s report and dispatcher notes. The deputy went to a local park and found Cruz, who explained that he had misplaced a photo of his recently deceased mother and, emotionally distraught, began punching the wall...

Rock interrupted Cruz and a fight broke out between them, according to the documents. Cruz left the home, and Rocxanne Deschamps called 911. She warned the police dispatcher that Cruz said "he was going to get his gun and come back," records show. She said Cruz had "bought a gun from Dick's last week and is now going to pick it up."

Rocxanne Deschamps told the dispatcher that Cruz had "bought tons of ammo" and "has used a gun against ppl before," the notes said. "He has put the gun to others heads in the past."

Now, what would have happened if the FBI investigated his YouTube threat to become a "professional school shooter" slightly more than not at all and combined this information with the constant stream of hair-raising reports on this little psychopath?

Maybe sometimes you have to use clear language like "sicko" to let bureaucrats know that if they don't act, something important is on the line: their jobs.

15 Instapundit frequently mentions that people don't have faith in the institutions because of incompetence and such like this.

Also why I joke about being an anarchist. What is the FBI even good for?

Or the other thing I like to repeat-- *if* Mussolini had made the trains run on time (he didn't, but let's pretend), that would be a data point in his favor, and then people could argue and debate various merits and tradeoffs; safety vs. freedom and all that.

But if a system is both corrupt and incompetent? Yeah, no.

44 I'm going to keep posting this until I get an answer.


OK I want one of you lawyers to explain to me why I am wrong in this analysis.

1. The Supreme Court in The District of Columbia vs Heller ruling held that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right.

2. The operative part of 18 U.S. Code 242 reads as follows:

"Whoever
under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom
willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth,
Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or
immunities secured or protected by the Constitution..." The rest of the
law describes other offenses and penalties up to death for aggravated
circumstances for doing the above.

18 U.S. Code 242 is the law
that made all of the Jim Crow laws dead letter unenforceable. Since
Heller, I hold that it applies to all gun control laws also. Why am I
wrong?

95 Nikolas Cruz was a known threat, and had been reported numerous times to law enforcement. Nothing, absolutely nothing was done to even assess that threat let alone intercede.

At some point, one has to wonder if there isn't a conspiracy to allow these threats to fester and then explode with tragic consequences.

I'm not a conspiracy kind of person, and it feels odd to even think this way. But after all of these shootings, and seeing how many of these tragedies could have been avoided if people reporting bad behavior were taken seriously, I'm starting to question things. Not in a "let's recruit crazies to shoot up the place" kind of way, but in a lassaiz-faire sort of way, if crazies are reported, let them go and then we can use the tragedy to push an agenda.

Never let a tragedy go to waste, right? And don't get in the way of a tragedy if one might be forming.

From the way that dad spoke, it was done with a filter. So they said they were looking for people to "discuss policy" or something like that. They wouldn't say gun control, but the dad figured that out and said no, he wasn't going to contribute. So I think they feel people out, and if they were angry gun grabbers, they booked them.

At some point, one has to wonder if there isn't a conspiracy to allow these threats to fester and then explode with tragic consequences.

I'm not a conspiracy kind of person, and it feels odd to even think this way. But after all of these shootings, and seeing how many of these tragedies could have been avoided if people reporting bad behavior were taken seriously, I'm starting to question things. Not in a "let's recruit crazies to shoot up the place" kind of way, but in a lassaiz-faire sort of way, if crazies are reported, let them go and then we can use the tragedy to push an agenda.

Never let a tragedy go to waste, right? And don't get in the way of a tragedy if one might be forming.

Someone mentioned in last thread that the kids for the CNN town hall
that spoke out were supposedly emailed their talking points, and if so
those should be easy to track down and prove.



There was an image posted of a close-up supposedly taken at a CNN
town hall. Showed a woman reading her question off a printout that said
"YOUR QUESTION" in the header.



If that is real and part of the town hall in question and not photoshopped, CNN has a lot to answer for.


Uh, no.

282 I'm pretty sure the exclusively cable tv channels do not have licenses that can be pulled. If CNN still owns that local station in Atlanta, WTBS, that station does have a broadcast license from the FCC and if the station is not serving its local community WTBS's license could be pulled.

Over the air broadcasting being licensed goes back to the Communications Act of 1934. Stations were using the public's airspace to transmit and had to prove they were serving the public.

Cable tv does not use the public airspace. It would seem that satellite delivered tv would fall under that umbrella but it does not.

There may be other ways to go after cable channels - using the Federal Trade Commission? But cable tv is not licensed, only local over the air stations are licensed.

Media Just Embarrassing Itself Over the "Broward Coward"

JJ Sefton noted the report that the sheriff's deputy assigned to protect the Parkland school did nothing for six minutes during the rampage.

The cuck media is taking this a proof that "good guys with guns can't stop gun crime," not realizing that 1, this guy was actually a paid agent of the state and therefore 2, if paid agents of the state specifically assigned to carry guns to defend citizens won't do so, then 3, it's up to every private citizen to arm himself in order to protect himself.

John Harwood, who no one ever accused of not being a fucking retard, drooled thus:





Also big on this claim is human soft-boiled egg Chris Cillizza:



No, he wasn't a "good guy with a gun," a shorthand expression for a private citizen with a gun. He was paid state agent and a cop who, reports say, chose to cower instead of doing the job taxpayers used to pay him to pretend to do.

Now, if you think that's dumb, and I'm pretty sure you do, well, here's even dumber.

Famous MSNBC tough-guy Lawrence O'Donnell, who uses a shitty Southie accent when he wants to fake-challenge people to fights on TV (ps, Lawrence, I'm game), has an interesting explanation as to why a citizen's handgun would be useless against an AR-15:



I'm not a Super-Expert on guns, but I rather think the AR-15's superior accuracy (longer barrels fire straighter shots; heavier barrels jump less from recoil) would be a factor in a pistol-vs.-rifle fight, but I don't think mere bullet speed would count all that much.



By the way, the guy with the pistol had an immense advantage over the shooter: He knew about the shooter, and he knew about where the shooter was (from the sounds of gunfire), but the shooter didn't know about him or where he was.

Now, it seems he was out taking a well-deserved smoke break, but had he been doing his job, he would have cautiously approached the shooter from a behind sort of angle and taken the not-so-difficult trick shot of shooing someone unaware right in his fucking back.

I'll have to check with Lawrence O'Donnell about how muzzle velocity would factor into that sort of an attack.

Oh, thanks to Commenter, former minor author Joyce Carol Oates wants to know why a paid guard armed with a mere "conventional" weapon could possibly be expected to do his job and shoot someone armed with an "AK-15."



Oh, by the way, the Weekly Cuck has an editorial out:




States and municipalities may wish to try different policies, but arming so many teachers across the nation would increase the danger, not alleviate it. School shootings are a problem, but the odds of any one school being attacked is still, thankfully, minuscule. Put a gun in the classroom, and it might well become like Checkhov's gun: Eventually, somebody's going to use it.

Oh, how literary. Someone's very proud of having remembered a quote usually taught in the ninth grade.

What did I tell you? As they drop their masks and work to make themselves employable by the liberal magazines they've always secretly craved employment at, gun rights will be the first issue they'll "evolve" on -- but it won't be the last.

Oh: Checkhov? I missed this:



Maybe the Weekly Cuck shouldn't be that proud of their ninth-grade-drama-appreciating reference.

Bullet speed is very important. You can outrun a regular, non-assault weapon pistol bullet but you can't outrun a high-powered, AR-15 superman-speed bullet. Of course, I'm assuming you're wearing professional running shoes in this hypothetical.

does anyone know? I know it is a euphemism, but I do not know for what. Is he a narc? is that what they are trying not to say?

what is the etymology of a name like that? did they just randomly open a management consulting text and pick random words?

98 Some teachers is states with less strict gun laws will sign up for firearms training. Those in states with strict gun laws generally will not and the union would fight it all the way anyway even if some wanted it. Therefore, the evil murderers who want to kill kids will head to states with less strict gun laws, and some people may not mind quite so much if a bunch of teens get shot as long as it's a red state and their parents were Democrats. I happen to think any innocent kid shot is a bad thing.

One kid paid the ultimate price for helping unlike the coward of broward.

Have you seen the kid who designed a door stop for active shooting situations? It prevents the shooter from getting into the classroom. He is patenting it and schools have already ordered it. He's enlisting in the Army after graduation this year. Good, common sense answers.

Add some great cameras with smart people monitoring them and you could do some real good.

167 42 - The delay is deliberate so they can delete any crimes from the recording. The school and cops have been conspiring for years to prevent crimes being reported so nobody gets a record. So if some guy molests a girl and she complains, nobody has seen it and the authorities erase the incident. Then they negotiate a settlement. No record for the perp. It's why this shooter had no record and was able to pass a background check. Every time he assaulted someone prior - it got hushed.

Not even factoring in the speeds of light and sound, any caliber round fired from any weapon will close a 100' gap between the shooter and the target before the target's brain has even registered that there was a shot fired.

You can argue day in and day out to the contrary and split hairs, but as the "security" guard just showed, you are own your own. He heeded his internal obligation to protect himself.


The lesson of flight 93 should never be lost on anyone. It's a YOYO world when everything goes sideways.

However, I will be dropping off a letter to the local Enterprise office that I will no longer rent cars from Enterprise despite good service in the past because they have chosen to play politics.

The letter will also state I am contacting every other organization that has an Enterprise discount and telling them that I will no longer do business with that organization unless they sever their discount relationship with Enterprise. Politics and business don't mix. For example, I am telling AAA that I'm done with them unless they ditch Enterprise. Will be looking to see who else does Enterprise.

Ok, yes and no.

On the other hand, this was a fricking public servant. A security theater employee who had ONE FRICKING JOB- TO KEEP THESE KIDS SAFE. He abrogated that responsibility. Flagrantly.

He was trained.

He was armed.

So Oates proves yet again that even a blind pig finds an acorn now and again. Although even here she misses the point.
If I am allowed to pick the time, place and method of attack, I will be successful 99 times out of 100.
In this case Cruz picked the time, place and method...but given the cascade of failure, it's almost as if he were allowed to. And then the damn SRO didn't do his job. If he had, this attack would have been mostly foiled.

The purpose of this guard was not to arrest students, but to cover for them. It's why there was a delay on the security tape.
They had a policy of sending kids to the PROMISE program, and not to jail(again so numerous that they needed their own police to sort it out).
Without this, Cruz would have been in jail, the warning would not have been 'missed', the guard would have been willing to answer questions from social services, and his background check when buying the gun would have come up DENIED.

Somehow, to Simpleton Oates, 'AK-15' is some mystical superweapon (since there's no such thing as an 'AK-15,' maybe she's right).

And a handgun is 'conventional.'

Both could be firing the same caliber, both semi-automatic.

But she's been hysterically programmed to think that an AR is a super-powered smart weapon.

252 So the shooter had time to prepare and plan his attack, and Broward County has no planning or preparations for it's personnel on how to respond to an active shooter situation? And that's why Barney Fife didn't engage the shooter?

The DOJ needs to investigate Dade and Broward County LEO and School Superintendents for corruption. Their policy of not arresting High School students-- even for violent crimes-- in order to qualify for state and federal grants is probably why the Broward law enforcement did nothing about Cruz in spite of all the warnings.

291 true about 2.4 "mass murder" (more than 4) school deaths per year occurred in the last 35 years. There are some 50 million students, so we should do nothing? Yet the campaign has been all about Do Something!!!

If 20% of teachers can't handle a little training and a gun locked in their locked closet, then we need to fire more teachers. (and we should fire more). Even if we save no lives by arming teachers, we train a citizenry to accept citizens with guns.

Of course in Waco the FBI used guns, but mostly gas and fire to murder women and children. But even Trump is having trouble dealing with a villainous FBI ... so giving up guns to make some liberals happy ... Bad Idea (remember "Bad Idea Jeans" from SNL? lol)

Reporting is when you identify public employees to the public for accountability.

No. There was a donut sucking taxpayer funded parasite counting down the days until he could collect his pension, who refused to do the job he was being paid for, precisely at the time when when his job requirements demanded he give the full last measure that he took an oath to perform.

Craven guy with a gun.

I'm surprised the left hasn't brought him an emotional support animal, coloring books, and started a go-fund me page.

What really makes me shudder is he had to know some of these kids. They weren't strangers.

And as I said before, my tipping point into deep anger came when I read he refused info to Social Services on this nut job. So he had a double duty to help. So much blood on his hands. So much. And I have severe doubts he even cares.

I would imagine all 3. He was near retirement and had many years in sheriffs department, it sounds like. So probably old and ineffective and wanted a cushy job. Judging by his act of bravery and penchant for cool thinking in a tough situation at the school, I could also imagine that other cops probably didn't want this guy to be the one watching their backs.

So government did what government does, and gave him a no-work job with an important sounding job description and title.

And he did what he was told to do -- nothing.

In this case, the deputy had a duty to act because he responded to a call for help and someone relied on his response.

I am familiar the cases you are citing. Those involve people who call 911 and the police don't respond or the police witness a crime but don't act to stop it.

In the case of 911 call, once the police agency says "We are on our way" the police have a duty to act."

376 OK, since I dropped this little stink-bomb about what I termed the "near-doxing" of this guy, let me flesh my thoughts out a bit....

Yeah, I think he has been "near-doxed". We know his name, and as a public servant, we should know that. We also have (at least) a screen-grab of his picture at a public meeting of some sort. I also saw an article somewhere that he was receiving police security at his house. So the local PD somehow believes that he is under some threat.

I think he deserves scrutiny, as he had a job that he apparently failed to do and lives were lost because of that. But having your sheriff publicly criticize your inaction (before any investigation had taken place), not to mention having the President use your name in a speech just seems like piling on.

To all of those who are saying "Fuck him", isn't this just the behavior that the Left and Antifa have engaged in? J.J. says that he's being protected by the "unionized blue wall", but wasn't it just 2 seconds ago that we liked all the cops?

This guy deserves all the disgrace that can be brought to him. I think he's getting it, in spades. Now that he's resigned from his job, what is he supposed to do for the rest of his life? I'm not saying that he deserves our sympathy, just that I'm concerned that he's being set up for a future harm that wouldn't serve justice either.

The Horde's view of police could only be described as ambivalent at best. I'd say it's gotten worse as time has gone on.

I've never loved cops. I see them as a necessary evil and support them when they punish actual criminals and bad people. For the most part they're an expensive inconvenience to ordinary citizens.

Posted by: professor disarray, gumdrop gorilla channel at February 23, 2018 03:08 PM (hLB6Q)

That sounds like department policy on not giving information. The county and the schools were busy hiding any crime. But yeah, he was a coward and a paid coward at that.

-----------
When the shooting happened every kid said they knew it was gonna be Cruz. Adults at the school too. Chances this Scot knew too are also pretty high. I keep turning it over in my mind, but it just gets worse. I don't want to believe someone is that callous, that selfish. It literally sickens me when I recall the pics of the other men and boys who gave their lives. While this turd stood outside.

IMO there were a lot of things he could have done/tried. Some have already been mentioned. At this point I expect to find out he was an accomplice of Cruz. Not really, but might as well have been.

His 'he called people' thing. The fire alarm had already been set off, there were people on the way. The 2 other guards or teachers could have called. Anyway, it doesn't take long to call.

Sorry, no sympathy.

401 On the car commute heard radio guy this morning talk about a "rash of school shootings." I thought a rash was more than one in a relatively short period of time, but what do I know, I'm an ignoramus.

Any serious discussion would need to acknowledge that mass shootings of any kind are rare. e.g. far more have died from just the increase in Baltimore's shootings after the BLM/Soros riot got the Baltimore PD to go into passive reactive mode. but what do I know, I'm a deplorable ignoramus.

402 OK I want one of you lawyers to explain to me why I am wrong in this analysis.

1. The Supreme Court in The District of Columbia vs Heller ruling held that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right.

2. The operative part of 18 U.S. Code 242 reads as follows:

"Whoever under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution..." The rest of the law describes other offenses and penalties up to death for aggravated circumstances for doing the above.

18 U.S. Code 242 is the law that made all of the Jim Crow laws dead letter unenforceable. Since Heller, I hold that it applies to all gun control laws also. Why am I wrong?

Rush yesterday was screaming about why Rubio would have ever agreed to go on a CNN set up like this one. He said there was NOTHING Rubio could have said to the kid's set up written for him by leftists question that would have not pinned him down. If he agreed to no longer take money from the NRA, his constituents would have shredded him. If he said anything at all in response to the kid he would have been blasted by the media for being disrespectful, uncaring, unsympathetic, etc. Rubio realized that and so he stood there taking this crap. The answer is to stop playing into the media's games.

He made a bad call, with people's lives on the line. Just the nature of human communities is going to make it inevitable that he's going to take some heat.

The advantage at the start of these things is always 100% with the shooters. They know that the targets are either completely undefended or maybe there's one guy with a .38 or a Glock.

446 But having your sheriff publicly criticize your inaction (before any investigation had taken place), not to mention having the President use your name in a speech just seems like piling on.

I don't believe there is any doubt about his actions. Video shows him doing nothing for 4-6 minutes. That's an eternity. Had he frozen for 30 seconds, called it in, and then gone into the building, no one would be giving him grief.

He's probably getting protection because there are 17+ families with an incentive to extract some revenge after the total failure of the county sheriff's department.

If you're up for some "light" philosophy reading, John Stuart Mill talks about this sort of thing at length in (I think) On Liberty. Basically, while there can be recourse to legal action taken against a person, there's never any recourse if society decides to take action against you through shaming or whatever, and as such, we should be very careful about when we engage in that sort of behavior.

The doxxing? I still don't know exactly what has been revealed.

That said, there is a difference between doxxing a private citizen for political beliefs and opinions that are not liked, and a armed security officer who let 17 people die. And yes. LET.

Until I see how he is being doxxed and what his family situation is...don't know about the doxxing.

But no other officer should ever think not protecting children is gonna be okay. He needs to know the consequences will be severe. Worse than taking their chances in a shooting. If they need some impetus, that should do it. So...we're helping.

After everything that's been exposed over the last 10 years (ex: Fast & Furious) I'm beginning to think this is not as far-fetched as it once was...

To the Democrats in power, these shootings are a good thing, because they are the ultimate form of conditioning... The more often these things happen and the more people die, the more open people will be open to "common-sense" gun control measures, leading to eventual confiscation...

I use the term "effectively stupid," because it captures all situations, including those that abound today:, people who aren't literally, technically of low intelligence, but who "effectively" are, as they are ignorant, and use no logic or critical thinking to arrive at/defend their "opinions".

I don't believe for a second that all cops are uniformly brave, wonderful , caring fully competents. The vast majority are though, and are not like what was being portrayed and used by the left to gin up riots, etc.
There are rogue, untrustworthy, bad cops just like there are incompetent, untrustworthy people in every profession. Not every soldier or veteran is a super stand up, righteous, patriotic protector of freedom either, as we have seen from recent headlines. Or just the ones we know. For the couple of veterans I know who are useless alcoholics(neither saw combat action, they were this way when they entered service) , I know a lot more who are morally good and a credit to their uniform.

The difference is that we can see and understand there are exceptions in every group. We appreciate the PURPOSE of that group , however. The left, instead, applies a bias to every person in every group, and uses the single exception as proof of that bias reality to the group as a whole.

528 After Columbine where the police failed to move in after surrounding the building and the slaughter continued unabated, the training for LEO nationwide is to confront the shooter asap and make your presence known. This dosen't mean to recklessly get yourself killed, but it does mean to make yourself the center of attention to the shooter and to no longer afford him the ability to wander about killing indiscriminately. This deputy knew this, was trained in this tactic, and when confronted with the situation failed his assignment. There is NO excuse...there is only the reality that he failed to act!

533 Something no one seems to be bringing up is that the majority of kids at this high school did not see the shooter, had no contact with him, and although I'm sure they were scared crazy at the time, if treated properly, shouldn't be permanently scarred by this event.

What isn't helping any of them is the school being closed for nine days, for the media to constantly be parroting how emotional it will be for them to go back to class, blah, blah. If the school also treats all of them like they expect them to have emotional meltdowns every day for weeks, then it will be a self fulfilling prophecy.

How about moving on as much as possible with normalcy? How about explaining this was an exceptional act, and much more, here is what you can do about it. It's the constant drumming of how helpless these kids are that I find disgusting. They are not. They can actively work to discover any other classmate that might be contemplating the same thing. They can learn better self defense techniques that don't involve throwing cans of peas or huddling under a chair. Letting them find they can actively do something to protect themselves will stop the feeling of fear and powerlessness.

534 >I'm not a Super-Expert on guns, but I rather think the AR-15's superior accuracy (longer barrels fire straighter shots; heavier barrels jump less from recoil) would be a factor in a pistol-vs.-rifle fight, but I don't think mere bullet speed would count all that much.

Well let me give you the short version. The biggest impact of velocity is easier shot placements at longer ranges. Lethality depends on the injury. The injury is primarily driven by energy transfer, penetration, and placing.

5.56 NATO energy transfer is poor due to it's high velocity, and small caliber (and the tendency for all the cheap ammo to be FMJ) At short ranges pistol rounds (Which are nominally .38 caliber, but also popular in larger calibers) outperform the .22 caliber 5.56 NATO FMJ in energy transfer, penetration being nearly identical (either pass through or nearly so) at short ranges.

Ultimately outdoors when engagement ranges easily exceed 100yds engaging a 5.56 rifle with a pistol puts you at a severe disadvantage due to difficulty in shot placement at long range with a pistol. Once you are indoors the short engagement ranges places the weapons at near parity.

538 I think "good guy with a gun" did originally refer to responding LEOs.

Because the pattern is that the mass shooter goes buck wild for the 6-10 minutes of his rampage, until LEOs respond on scene, when one of three outcomes happens in 99.9% of mass shootings:

A) Shooter surrenders;

B) Shooter commits suicide;

C) Shooter commits suicide by cop.

These guys (they're not really shooters/soldiers) don't really seem to have planned emotionally/mentally for armed resistance/return fire. How rare is it that a responding LEO gets shot? The shooters really seem to give up the ghost at first resistance.

So the idea is that someone with a concealed firearm could stop or at least tie up a shooter until the cavalry arrives by returning fire. Think about how the shooter is now tied up, seeking cover from fire instead of methodically plinking unarmed children.

In this case the "GOOD GUY WITH A GUN OMG HOW DUMB" is flagrantly, incandescently stupid, because Cruz actually fled the school grounds surrendered to the Tac Response team when they arrived (AKA GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS). They would be the chaps putting cuffs on his wrists behind his back in the several photos.

Posted by: Cuthbert the Witless at February 23, 2018 03:51 PM (ymnmz)

541 Rifle bullets are much BIGGER too. At least 2x bigger. So is the rifle which is 5x bigger. And 5x heavier than a handgun. Thus, EVEN IF the shooter was shot, the small bullet is no match for the bigger one (which, as was cogently noted) is 3x as fast.

Do the math you right wingers. 2x5x5x3=150!!! How is someone with a gun 1/150 as deadly as the shooter expected to stop him!!? Maybe IF he was able to shoot 150 bullets but that ASSUMES he hit the shooter 150 times!!! Meanwhile, the shooter only has to shoot ONCE because his bullet is 150 TIMES AS POWERFULLY DEADLY!!! If the shooter has a 30 round automatic assault clip in his AK-15R, WE ARE TALKING SOMEONE 4500 times as deadly!! 4500 times as deadly and 3 times FASTER!! To counter this disadvantage, the pistol shooter would have to shoot the shooter 675,000 TIMES!!!!!

Sorry to shout but this shows unequivocally that the NRA does not want you to do this math and thus murdered those children and wants to murder their teachers too. The only answer is confiscation after repeal of the 2nd Amendment, something even the children on CNN established. Sheesh.

545 It's true that most everybody would not want to go up against a rifle with a pistol. That's why whenever you see a SWAT team going into a building they are almost exclusively carrying rifles.

However, as evidenced by the football coach, you do what you have to do.

This does bring up the question, are these SRO's equipped with a rifle if that is their choice? My guess is that they don't let these guards carry a rifle because that would make the Lefty school moms panties get in a twist. A folding SBR might be a good compromise.

553 A little background on me, in no particular order....

* Yeah, I've been a semi-lurker on this blog for a long time....ten years at least. It is one of my favorite internet-places and smart military blogs. I've been here long enough to remember The Night of the Sodomizing Cougar-Man. But in spite of my time here, I also have a home and employment life (which I do have to get back to this afternoon), and so I am frequently unable to spend the time necessary to wade through 200-, 300-, or 400+ posts to get the gist of a thread. And then do it again on the thread after that, and so on.

* I have had a CCW for 25+ years, and as I suspect is the case with most who have their CCWs, I carry regularly, but not every day. I also carried at work for a while. I practice and train with a gun regularly (by which I mean I shoot 1500-2000 rounds a year.) And while I like to think that if I were ever in a situation that might require me to use my gun, that I would do so appropriately, I also think that no one can know **exactly** how you would respond until you're in that moment. If you think you do, then good on you, but I think you're kidding yourself.

* FWIW, I've been saying since Columbine that teachers and school staff ought to have the right to carry (openly or concealed....I don't care which) on campus. At best, a SRO is as likely to be on the far side of a school's trouble as he is likely to be in a place where he could engage it. At worst, the SRO is split among three or more campuses (sp?), or as in this case, completely ineffective.

* Maybe things are done differently in different places, or maybe I have this all wrong, but my understanding of a SRO is that he is a local law enforcement guy whose main job is to be the friendly face of law enforcement to the kiddies. IOW, his job is as much (or perhaps more) public relations than it is law enforcement. In a way, he's a lot like the cops you see at an airport....there to show the Law-Enforcement-Flag. Maybe the SRO will break up a fight now and then, or maybe he'll hear about some drugs or something, but he also works under the often-district-mandated discretion to not put every hot-headed kid into the law enforcement system if he can avoid it (you can join me in disagreeing with that mandate if you want, but I, at least, recognize that that is the way it is).

I'll try to return here, but if I don't, then I hope you'll forgive my employment-related absence.

557 I've done tactical simulations with pistol-on-rifle drills.

I never once thought about the velocity of the ammo but I do think about the greater accuracy at longer range. That's what will kill the guy with the pistol.

The good news, in CQB scenarios, you can close a lot of that distance under cover, especially inside a building. But crossing the playground or soccer field is going to be a real bear.

But I suspect Lawrence O'Stupid has never done this so what does he know.

Yup. All things being equal, all things are rarely equal.

To my knowledge, the murderer was not standing in the middle of an open field. Unless the facts of the actual terrain are much different than any skool I've ever been in, I refuse to believe the murderer could not have been maneuvered on by a single cop and then filled in with handgun rounds without having to have a pistol go toe-to-toe with a rifle.

Posted by: An Observation at February 23, 2018 03:20 PM (YFue0)
--The Heller line didn't abolish all gun regulations. While the 2nd Amendment is an individual right, it can be regulated. The District of Columbia effectively sought to abolish gun ownership by regulation -- that was too far for the Court. But many jurisdictions have highly-restrictive regulations that have (so far) been upheld. For example, the "justifiable need" regulations, that require an individual to demonstrate a justifiable need for a concealed carry permit that is accepted by the local PD, or a judge, before the permit is issued. To meet this standard, the applicant essentially needs to show that they are being faced with current, serious threats of death. They then can beg the PD for a permit to exercise their rights.

563 Good lord they're pathetic.

Yes, to the simplistic, childlike mind, adding more guns to school classrooms increases the likelihood of them being used. But that is not all you do, and for big gov't shills, they seem awfully clueless as to how long laws are written these days, which might, possibly, include ways to ensure only qualified teachers are armed, and that those guns are secured, probably within locked drawers.

See, I work in nuclear power. One of the question that is asked when you make a change to a facility, to determine if the NRC needs to review it before you make the change is, will it decrease the margin to safety. Assume you're adding a new system to help purify water in a cooling system. Say you're going to add 100' of pipe. Well, you had X feet of pipe before that could hypothetically break and now there is MORE such pipe. Isn't THAT a decrease in the margin of safety ? Haven't you increased the likelihood of a pipe break and loss of cooling ?

NO. Because all the pipe is designed and installed per the applicable ASME codes that ensure it will NOT break.

Same thing applies here. So long as you make clear the requirements for training teachers to be qualified to carry / wield a weapon on school grounds, and you specify how those weapons are secured so kids and unqualified teachers and staff do not have access to them, you actually have not increased the danger of guns in schools.

Granted, we're talking about liberal union teachers in many / most cases, so caveat emptor.

But only an idiot, or someone being willfully dishonest cannot digest in their tiny pea brains how such an undertaking could be carried out safely.

McCain Associate Subpoenaed About "Steele Dossier"

Byron York reporting.

McCain associate David Kramer went to London to pick up the "Steele Dossier" (if Steele really is the author) and get briefed on it. He took it to McCain, who took it to the FBI, which already had most of it, as Steele was giving it to them "in installments."

In his last round of questioning by the House Intelligence Committee, Kramer said he knew who the Soviet, I mean Russian, sources for the dossier's outrageous claims were, but "declined" to say who they were. (Instapundit notes he hears that Kramer took the Fifth on this question.)

Now Kramer's being subpoenaed specifically to answer those questions, and I imagine the Committee will be prepared for him to take the Fifth or otherwise refuse to answer.

Here's why this is important, per Byron York:

[T]here is another reason to know Steele's sources, and that is to learn not just the origin of the dossier but its place in the larger Trump-Russia affair. There is a growing belief among some congressional investigators that the Russians who provided information to Steele were using Steele to disrupt the American election as much as the Russians who distributed hacked Democratic Party emails. In some investigators' views, they are the two sides of the Trump-Russia project, both aimed at sowing chaos and discord in the American political system.

Investigators who favor this theory ask a sensible question: Is it likely that all the Russians involved in the attempt to influence the 2016 election were lying, scheming, Kremlin-linked, Putin-backed enemies of America -- except the Russians who talked to Christopher Steele?

It is a sensible question-- all Russians are scheming liars, except the ones peddling evidence-free claims about Trump?! -- which is why the Democrats and the media and the Never Trumpers (but I repeat myself thricely) never ask it.
