    Saw some Yahoo DemoRat Senator specifying on the Floor of the Senate, today, on CSpan.... He was introducing a NEW Statute that would make ALL Persons, convicted of MISDEMEANOR Hate Crimes, Lose their 2nd Amendment Rights.... I was screaming at the Tube.... "F*** **U and the Horse's A$$ you rode in, on"`.... Made me feel better, anyway....

    We know him here, that's Casey. An idiot of the first water, but popular among many in the cities. Needless to say, a flaming liberal.

    I would be more surprised if it doesn't occur seems the timing and all is perfect for validation and justification.

    Ive been doing the same about to get another 2000rds of 7.62x39 to make a cool 7K, need more 9mm and allot more 40sw.
    Got lost 22lr wow thats going to help lol. I am picking up a SW M&P 9 Shield soon as well. Not found great deals on 9mm still looking. Point is it seems this year was predicted by many people as being the anti-gun year to be all years I hope there wrong but most of this doesn't look good.

    That's what scares me. The timing is perfect! This tragedy is a huge opportunity especially for low life Hillary and the rest of her little cabal. You can bet she will use it.

    I read a story today saying that the shooter was actually gay. I suspect it's disinformation to get daesh to back off it's claim of the shooter as one of their fighters, so Obama can continue his narrative that this is not Islamic terrorism. It'll be interesting if the story gains traction in the MSM (ABC seems to have it...kinda)...and even more interesting to see if daesh bites and distances themselves from their allegedly gay fighter! Bet the shooter's daddy will blow a gasket too!

    I know it's still early in the process of finding out the exact sequence of events in which all the shots were fired, so the facts are still in the process of "discovery". Thus far, I've heard on one Fox News report that about 200 total rounds were fired with approximately 80 coming from the LEOs.

    I wonder if any of the shooting victims were actually hit by "friendly fire" during all the confusion? I also wonder if the 53 wounded individuals were all bullet wounds attributed to the terrorist? Surely some of those hospitalized victims were from injuries related to glass cuts, falls, and contusions related to seeking cover and escaping the night club.

    The narrative we're being fed is that one person caused about 103 bullet wound casualties, 49 resulting in fatalities thus far, with about 120 rounds credited to the shooter. We've already heard from victim TV interviews that the perpetrator fired many rounds into the ceiling. We've also heard from victim TV interviews that the shooter fired extra rounds into his fallen victims to ensure they were dead. Also, the perpetrator exchanged fire with the LEOs, even hitting one in the Kevlar helmet.

    Somehow, the number of bad guy shots fired compared to the total number of casualties (dead + wounded/injured) stretches a bit thin. Since the weapons used by the shooter were of the same caliber (.223 or 5.56mm rifle and a handgun of either 9mmP or 40S&W---not yet clarified by the authorities), there is a probability that not all victims fell to hostile terrorist fire with no one really being able to discern the difference.

    The cynical side of me says the "narrative for public consumption" is still under construction as the "facts" bubble up. "The Truth is Out There....."(said X-Files character Fox Mulder), but will we ever know it?

    I think it is a safe assumption that some of the casualties were caused by friendly fire...but I doubt we'll ever get confirmation of such.

    One of our news guys said to me yesterday that they should just get rid of all the guns.
    I agreed, just as soon as everyone else in the world, including the police and military do, I'll step right up and throw mine on the very top of the pile. I'm sooo tired of liberal weenie emasculated democrat "men",

    Then set your spear verses charge, (ground and set the butt) and raise your shield to chin level and hang on.

    Absurd. Just shoot them when they come. Spears, swords, knives, hammers, even archers have to be closer than I want them to be and the techniques are less known. Go ahead, kell, take the last word.

    And we still await the results of all those investigations, complete with timelines and those to be blamed.

    Bows, knives, spears? Screw that. I'm seventy years old with bad lungs. I have an '06 and that is as close as I want them.

    (And yet again, you are trying to bait me). If you are so reduced, that you can not even swing your sword, you have already established you have no other options. At that point, it's hold the line, or die. That's what formations were all about.

    And you took the bait, simply by falling back on midieval means and methods by mentioning swords again.

    You are, however, correct about holding the line or dying. We are damn near that line now across the board, some closer than others, with or without formations that are of limited utility in this more modern age than you specialize in.

    Go ahead and butt your spears and raise your shields as the humvees come at your line. I'll shoot and move as I can until they catch me which they will.

    And we still await the results of the investigations and forensics of which you've lost sight while teaching history to those to whom it matters not.

    Bait? No, i corrected misinformation. To pull out a gun and start blasting because you lack the strength to swing a sword? Absurd. You might as well call in air support, either way, you are using a weapon you did not have before.

    Funny, but i think i covered that, just in the other thread. In fact, i believe I'm the only one to mention there should be CCTV footage. And i am very much aware this is an ongoing investagation, and evidence is still being processed.
    I was not the first to mention swords, and did respond to that comment. Standard technique for that age of weapon is as i stated. If you would choose to argue the technique, i would suggest you find the nearest Roman soldier and have a nice chat.
    These personal attacks are beneath you.
