    Police have identified the suspect who opened fire at a Walmart store in Amarillo this afternoon as Mohammad Moghaddam, 54. Mohammad Moghaddam, an immigrant, came to Amarillo with his family eight years ago from Iran. Immigrant services from Amarillo would not discuss with reporters whether they helped relocate the family to the Amarillo area. Police say Mohammad was upset he was passed over for a promotion so he took his manager and another person hostage. He was shot dead by police.

    On October 17, 2018, a student at a technical college in the Crimean city of Kerch carried out a Columbine-style rampage attack. He committed suicide at the end of his attack. He killed 20 people and wounded 70 more, many of them severely. I will not mention his name. It is included in the excerpt below. There are very restrictive gun control laws in place in Crimea.The murderer legally obtained a shotgun by performing all that was required, including a medical exam, and joining a local gun club. He purchased 150 rounds of ammunition a month before the attack. In...
  • California Shooter Likely Prescribed Drugs by the VA that are Tied to Most Mass Shootings

    Another tragic mass shooting has taken place and, as usual, both sides are using it to further their political agenda. As the left blames guns and the right blames mental illness, both sides are completely missing the elephant in the room. If Ian David Long was diagnosed with PTSD, as reported, he was likely prescribed a slew of medications from the VA which have been tied to most every mass shooting in recent history. According to his neighbors and family, Long suffered from PTSD. While those who suffer from PTSD can have a myriad of horrific symptoms, homicidal ideation is...

    So what's the final score? Who won the midterm elections on Tuesday night? The D team or the R team? Let's see. The Democrats and the progressive left have got Nancy Pelosi back as Speaker of the House for two years. Maxine Waters is ready to rumble too. Whoopee. I'm sure Nancy, Maxine and their aged claque of Trump haters and progressives will quickly show America their nasty partisan nature. They've already signaled that they are more interested in trying to impeach Donald Trump than reaching bipartisan consensus on important issues like immigration or funding our infrastructure needs. Meanwhile, since...

    As usual in these situations, the criminal's Facebook and social media gets purged, often before anyone outside of state-controlled media and police can verify what was actually posted. However, there are reports that Ian David Long, a former Marine, wrote a final post on his Facebook page before going into the Borderline Bar & Grill and murdering a dozen people before turning the gun on himself. In that post, he allegedly wrote, "Yeah... I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers.'" This doesn't sound like the words of a Marine to me....

    Illinois Review ^ | October 31, 2018 AD | John F. Di Leo
    Who’s to blame? Every time there is a shooting, a bombing, any kind of mass killing, a heartbroken nation asks ourselves, who’s to blame? We must begin, of course, with the fact that the person who did it, did it. Period. The person who pulled the trigger, set the bomb, drove the van, was responsible. Unless he was hypnotized, or otherwise physically and mentally controlled from afar, the killer himself bears criminal responsibility for the crime he commits. No excuses, no reprieves, no blaming a cruel society or bad childhood. When a killer kills, he owns the responsibility, and he...

    During day one of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) accused him of being beyond “pro-gun” and suggested more people will die in mass shootings if he is confirmed. Feinstein said: “If the Supreme Court were to adopt your reasoning I fear the number of victims would continue to grow and citizens would be rendered powerless in enacting sensible gun laws.”

This on social media from the Times. 11 fatalities, no children in Pittsburgh shooting, authorities announce. 6 injured, including 4 police officers, but not the shooter.— Trip Gabriel (@tripgabriel) October 27, 2018 Our prayers for all the victims’ family and friends.***We previously noted there were suggestions that the shooter’s social media accounts contained blatant antisemitic threats. That’s been confirmed now as the NY Post reports. The man who killed eight people at a Pittsburgh synagogue was a virulent anti-Semite who apparently posted, “Screw your optics. I’m going in,” just hours...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The suspect in a deadly shooting at a Florida video game tournament had previously been hospitalized for mental illness, according to court records in his home state of Maryland reviewed by The Associated Press. Divorce filings from the parents of 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore say that as an adolescent he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and was prescribed antipsychotic and antidepressant medications. The records show Katz's parents disagreed on how to care for their troubled son, with his father claiming his estranged wife was exaggerating symptoms of mental illness as part of their long and...

    Just wanted to go back to this Mandalay Bay shooting in Vegas for a minute or two. At the time they opined that Paddock's motive was unknown. I just loooked again and they still say that. Wow. Well, not really. As I said afterward, this was a terrorist attack meant to destroy the Mandalay Bay/or MGM. As despicable as he and his actions were, from a say, military guerrilla standpoint, it is pretty ingenious. A typical stumble bum would lose a lot a dough at a casino, go in and maybe shoot a few people, get shot dead himself, and...

    Morgan Roof, the younger sister of the Charleston shooter Dylann Roof, was arrested after taking two weapons to school and posting to Snapchat that she hoped students protesting against gun violence in a nationwide walkout “get shot.” Roof, 18, showed up at A.C. Flora High School in South Carolina with a knife, pepper spray, and marijuana. She faces weapons and drugs charges. A judge released Roof on a $5,000 bond but ordered her to stay away from her school. Though she faced no charges relating to her Snapchat post, it did cause alarm, reported WIS-TV. In her post, Roof wrote:...

The school shooting threat, discovered Friday, forms one of more than 106 such threats made toward Louisiana schools since the Feb. 14 shooting that killed 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., according to the FBI's New Orleans Field Office and the Louisiana State Police.

    The public must be allowed to see the security video from outside last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, a judge ruled Monday. The South Florida Sun Sentinel, along with other media organizations, sued the Broward Sheriff’s Office last month for access to the video, arguing that it is critical for the public to analyze law enforcement’s response to the shooting.
