You could see the exasperation when a reporter asked about the “silencer” and he corrected the reporter with “suppressor.”

Public events are often similiar.
Many states are already already allowing vwts, ex cops, trained staff or volunteers to privide security. Its the right step to take. A school should have at least the security of a tiny credit union or even a convenience store, especially with our Islamist friemds promising Beslans on our shores and students going wacko frequently.
The CCW crime rate is so incredibly low, lower than mil or ex mil for sure and as low as police officers (lower than blue city police), that there is almost zero risk with them anyway. Across the spectrum they might even be better trained.
You lefty nitwits swore putting armed cops (local cops included not just feds) on airplanes and arming some pilots would surely have planes falling from the sky due to bullets flying everywhere, but you were wrong as usual.
Even the threat of armed people on the plane has pushed Islamists to other types of soft target attacks in other gunfree zones.
Have you even managed to notice these things are almost ALWAYS in gunfree zones? Is that the slightest clue for you?
There is a reason you lefties arent in military, law enforcement, security and protectiion. You feel, not think.
So clearly, blacks are significantly more likely to commit mass shootings per capita than whites. Seems that isn’t quite the “tone” of the article or our resident lefties, now is it.
Of course some people in the check out line switched to another line when I started talking like Carl from Sling Blade asking about biscuits and such....
On the day of the synagogue shooting in California, there were at least nine other mass shootings. One of the shooters was Hispanic and the other eight were Black. This was not reported in the media. See Link.
My daughter drove right by that building on her way to the beach around 4:05. My guess is he had just started shooting about that time. I wonder how many in that building have a CWP and left it in their vehicle or at home because they aren't allowed in that building? He went through 3 floors shooting people with a .45 ACP with extended mags and it ended in a big gunfight with 4 police officers, one of whom was also shot but survived because of his vest.
the suspected mass shooter who killed at least 11 people and injured at least six others at a municipal center in Virginia Beach on Friday afternoon was widely identified across social media as DeWayne Craddock. The Wall Street Journal also reported that the gunman was identified as DeWayne Craddock, a 40-year-old Black man who “made multiple firearm purchases in recent weeks.”
“This is the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach,” Mayor Bobby Dyer said after the shooting. “The people involved are our friends, co-workers, neighbors, colleagues.”
Cable news outlets described the shooter as being disgruntled and the Wall Street Journal reported that he was a “longtime city employee who had been fired entered a municipal building in Virginia Beach, Va., Friday afternoon to exact revenge.”
A web page on the MyLife.com listed information about a Virginia Beach resident named DeWayne Craddock as being 40 years old and having a birthday on Oct. 15, 1978. It lists him as a Black registered Democrat and Christian who is married.
The shooter died in an exchange of gunfire with police.
Heavy.com produced a photo of DeWayne Craddock that showed an image of a Black man.
If it does turn out that Craddock was the gunman, the fact that he is Black would offer a unique narrative surrounding the spate of mass shootings that have been taking place across the U.S. in recent years.
“Statistics show that since 1982, the majority of mass shootings — 54 percent — were committed by white men,” Newsweek reported while citing statistics on mass shootings compiled by Mother Jones. “Black people were the second largest perpetrators of mass shootings based on ethnic background, but only accounted for roughly 16 percent of the total incidents during the same time period.”
So whites are 54% and blacks are 16%. Any idea what the general population is?
