Dust off the Gun Control Bills....
sorry about the delay...
Reno 911 to the rescue!.................
FWIW, I read an unsourced comment that said “shooter neutralized” on another website about a half hour ago http://commentsys.slopeofhope.com/go.php?c=1558680
They couldn't help it. The gubmint was shut down.
(Is a teleprompter an essential Federal employee?)
Reports now say the shooter died of a self inflicted wound. At least on child wounded (12 year old).
Luckily the gun free zones did not claim another victim.
I hope “neutralized” means there were armed guards who fired their shots before the fruitcake did.
When are people going to realize the politicians won't be there to save them every time someone pulls out a gun, or a knife, or machete, or what ever. When are they going to realize the politicians don't have THEIR best interest in mind?
And why is it every time the democrats get in trouble there's a shooting somewhere? I'm beginning to sense a pattern here. "Let's not talk about the obomacare failures anymore. We need a new crise to change the subject. Got any ideas? A shooting would do the trick. That always works."
Local media says 2-4 victims. Shooter neutralized/in custody. Press conference shortly. Fatalities unknown. Will up date shortly.
9 a.m. update: A press conference is starting now for a shooting this morning at Sparks Middle School.
8:41 a.m. update Sparks City Manager Shawn Carey tells the RGJ that one student was transported to an area hospital and that the shooter is dead by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
8:36 a.m. update: Sparks police will hold a press conference at around 9 a.m. on the shooting at Sparks.
from: Reno Gazette Journal
It's becoming more than obvious that these things are provoked with intent, for the purpose of giving the administration political distraction and for stumping for gun control.
9:20 a.m. update:
Sparks police say several people were shot this morning at Sparks Middle School. Two people have died, including the shooter. Two people are in critical condition at Renown Regional Medical Center.
Personally, I'm very grateful that the body count is low -- comparatively, of course.
A student shot another student and then himself.
Latest. Two dead, two wounded and I thought I heard them say the shooter was down? Details will become more unclear as the day goes on as usual. Looked like all of Sparks PD was there and half the Reno PD plus most WCSD and NHP on scene. Next news conference scheduled at 11. No mention of an AR yet. Gun control folks will be cranking up shortly after they get there screed together. Not in the school but on the campus grounds.
The White House is probably working feverishly right now to politicize this.
Foregone conclusion. Crocotears will be flowing soon.
Reports of AR-51 Shotgun used in 3...2...1
Who will be the first RAT to dance in the blood?
Sticks of butter are AR-15's.
Everything is an AR-15.
Looking at the demographics of the town
White alone - 53,740 (58.9%)
Hispanic - 25,173 (27.6%)
Asian alone - 5,401 (5.9%)
Two or more races - 2,931 (3.2%)
Black alone - 1,796 (2.0%)
American Indian alone - 1,380 (1.5%)
Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone - 708 (0.8%)
Other race alone - 73 (0.08%)
feral Amish were likely not involved.
Although looking at the school’s demographics the school’s population is
with 53% eligible for a fully subsidized lunch and 16% eligible for a partially subsidized lunch.
Possibly a Mexican gang shooting?
They’ll be more than happy to bend over and take it.
Yup. First of all, prayers to the victims. I got a knot in my gut as soon as I heard about this cause we all know what’s coming. NFL broadcasters will be calling for more gun control, the justus bros may show up if there were any minorities involved/mistreated. It does most assuredly suck in any case. The latest I got from the locals (who of course have already started with the “too often” crap) was two fatal+shooter. Two critical at local hospitals. No indication yet if they were students or faculty. Looked like a student being loaded in to the ambulance. Probably some kid(?) who “felt” disrespected or was being bullied. Even though we know bullying is a no-no.
Prayers up. But let’s not forget the wreaths and flowers for the makeshift memorial, the candlelight vigil, call out the greif counselors(which seems to be a good “growth industry” to invest in). Get Gabby Giffords, the Sandy Hookers, Sarah Brady, etc. down there for their photo-ops. Maybe a special guest appearance by Code Pink and a few OWSers, they’ve been on the bench for quite a while. Pathetic.
Sure as hell seems like it...
One of the victims is a teacher, shooter 13-14, wearing Sparks Middle School Uniform.
and where did the 2 wounded come from, the cops??
11:22 a.m. update:
A student at Sparks Middle School shot and killed a teacher and wounded two other students Monday morning before fatally turning the gun on himself, police said.
Two unidentified males were wounded in the shooting and were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in critical condition, a spokeswoman said. The Reno Gazette-Journal is trying to confirm the identity of the shooter and the teacher, who was reportedly a popular math teacher there, according to eyewitness accounts. Police said the teacher who was shot was trying to protect students.
Police said the shooting happened at 7:15 a.m. and students were evacuated to nearby Agnes Risley Elementary School and then to Sparks High School, where parents picked up their children.
At an 11 a.m. press conference, officials said of the two injured students, one was out of surgery and the other was doing well.
The teacher’s name was Michael Landberry, 8th grade teacher..may he RIP
There are depressed minority youth shoot people as well without gang involvement like the kid in Red Lake and Clakamas.
these shootings seem to never end since 2009. hmm.
Semper Fi to the Teacher who died
“They”, not I...
I would like to study the mechanism used by the anti-gunners to make these things happen so regularly.
How do they do it? Here’s a real life example of someone who got caught trying to turn youths into mind-controlled killers, from 20 years ago:
Update on Sparks shooting;
The cops and the school are NOT going to release the shooter’s name. This is very unusual. I suspect his parents are employed by the school district or the police department.
>>The cops and the school are NOT going to release the shooters name. This is very unusual. I suspect his parents are employed by the school district or the police department.<<
It is indeed unusual. In every case, the shooter is always identified almost immediately. What’s preventing the students from posting it anywhere online? Some sort of gag order? There’s certainly more to this than meets the eye.
I think its Harry Reid. Prove I'm wrong.*
*Using the strict and responsible reporting methods Reid used on Romney.
“The cops and the school are NOT going to release the shooters name. This is very unusual. I suspect his parents are employed by the school district or the police department.”
That is more than likely a big clue as too why this hasn’t become a national fire storm to take attention away from ObozoCare.
> The cops and the school are NOT going to release the shooters name.
Guessing it’s either a GLBQT or a Muzzloid.
Shooter’s name is Jose Reyes, 12. ID’ed after Univision reported it. His grandma also put a memorial on her facebook page.
> Shooters name is Jose Reyes
Ah. An illegal, then.
