Thank you for that summary
Totally agree. Its a moral and spiritual crisis. The really bad thing is that most of the churches have lost their way too and cant help.
“he knew who he was.”
“He” or they?
It worked pretty well in Dayton.
I'd rather take on a terrorist using a rifle with a pistol than something else that might be available - like a chair, or a beer bottle, or a tire iron.
While open carry might be legal, it is politically incorrect and you will be persecuted for it by society and brainwashed tribe if you do. So very few actually do.
They stopped this idiot on a traffic violation and he just took off and started shooting from his vehicle. he’s dead.
If that is true, and it seems likely, why were there so many reports from police of multiple shooters? You would think they would know about the beginning of the rampage given an officer was involved, and would not be reporting multiple shooters:
From the Midland Police Department, here
"Update * We believe there are two shooters in two separate vehicles. One suspect is believed to be at the Cinergy in Midland and the other is believed to be driving on Loop 250 in Midland. The two vehicles in question are: gold/white small Toyota truck and a USPS Postal van."
Doesn’t everyone carry in Texas?
All quite true and irrelevant. There are many ways to “go off the rails” that don’t involve mass murder. The same pharmaceutical companies with their billions who pushed to have every moderately intelligent male child put on calming drugs for non-existent behavioral problems, owns the government that makes your laws.
Been reading about the run up to civil war I. They also had a lot of low intensity violence at first described as random. The society of the time was coming apart.
We are in a worse state than 1857
Vid of police taking down shooter, at link....scroll down...
Tension stirs up marginal people. I dont think its a plot, but definitely, I agree with you that these times are tense and full of anger, and I think this is provoking unstable people.
In Dayton, the rifle user was confined in a bar, not in a moving vehicle and the backstop was the wall of the building.
That needs repeating... Especially the "Millennials" with all their big bad tattoo's and macho commie attitude's.. I think the real America's, the ones who love our constitution, are about ready to get mad...
Because there is a lot of difference between 30 people getting shot in one instance and one person getting shot in one instance in urban Chicago. Most of the urban killings generally are a bad dude shooting another bad dude. Sometimes there are innocent bystanders but not usually.
Most do. But when you have an idiot in a car shooting randomly as he drives at a high speed down the roads, it’s hard to react in time. He’s now dead, though.
Theres innocent bystanders all the time in ghetto shootings. And these shootings have got to stop too.
By coincidence I heard Elvis 1969 song In The Ghetto tonight. Sad song, and Elvis had a beautiful voice so it seems doubly sad.
But nothing has changed, despite decades of Great Society, affirmative action, etc. and these young black guys have no concern about how many other people theyll hit when theyre trying to take out their enemy. There was just a shooting where 10 people, most of them totally uninvolved with and unknown to the shooter, were shot by a gangbanger trying to take out an enemy.
No, because my sentiment remains the same. I’ve carried for 29 years, and not just to protect my own worthless ass.
