Unless its a Narwhal fight in a phone booth, in which case much win.

 

From a purely cold blooded point of view, its an interesting contrast. Maniac with a knife, 2 killed. Maniac with a shotgun, 2 killed.

 

Spears aren't ideal for close in fighting. You'd be better off with a walrus tusk. I'm sure the Sadiq Khans will ban those too.

NICS checks only work if the record is there to find. So a blue state is so concerned about gun crime that it all but denies its citizens their 2nd amendment rights but then goes easy on the criminal who then murders others because of it.

 

NJ gave Texas gunman plea deal that wiped out gun felony

 

The gunman who killed two congregants at a Texas church last month had been charged years earlier with a felony gun offense in New Jersey, where prosecutors later downgraded the crime to a low-level misdemeanor that had nothing to do with firearms.

Which gets us into the thing that's clear. They don't care about public safety. They just want more control. If society is a hell hole because of rampant crime, it's no skin off their nose.

And keep in mind that violent criminals are perceived to be the Footsoldiers Of The Revolution by the left. Its those working- and middle-class stiffs with ill-gotten gains (meaning not from gov't) that are the demons walking free.

Pensacola shooting was an act of terrorism, attorney general says

 

By Devlin Barrett and Matt Zapotosky

 

January 13, 2020 at 10:10 PM EST

 

Attorney General William P. Barr said Monday that the December shooting that killed three U.S. sailors on a Florida base was an act of terrorism, as officials revealed harrowing new details about the 15-minute rampage and publicly called out Apple Inc. to help them unlock the killer's phones.

 

At a news conference to discuss the results of the FBI's investigation into the shooting at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Barr said investigators had found evidence that Ahmed Mohammed al-Shamrani, a Royal Saudi Air Force member training at the base, was motivated by "jihadist ideology" and had posted anti-American messages on social media about two hours before his attack.

 

FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich said that during the attack, Shamrani fired shots at pictures of President Trump and a past U.S. president, and witnesses at the scene said he made statements critical of American military actions overseas. Bowdich said that while Shamrani did not seem to be inspired by one specific terrorist group, he harbored anti-American and anti-Israeli views and felt "violence was necessary". Bowdich said the gunman's social media comments echoed those of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni American cleric tied to the terrorist group al-Qaeda who was killed in a drone strike in 2011.

 

[...]

 

In declaring the incident terrorism, Barr noted that on Sept. 11, Shamrani posted a message on social media saying, "The countdown has begun". Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Barr said, Shamrani visited the memorial in New York City to those killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who carried out those attacks were Saudis.

 

Barr said that while it was initially reported that Shamrani arrived to the shooting with others, who filmed it, those accounts turned out to be incorrect. The shooter, he said, arrived alone, though other cadets who happened to be in the area did film the ensuing commotion.

 

Bowdich said the incident lasted about 15 minutes, with authorities intervening to stop the attack after about eight minutes. Barr singled out sailor Ryan Blackwell, who he said - despite having been shot five times - jumped on top of a fellow service member to prevent her from being shot and helped others get to safety.

 

The gunman, who used a semiautomatic handgun he purchased legally via an exception that allows non-U.S. citizens with hunting licenses to do so, was fatally shot by a sheriffs deputy.

 

Bowdich said investigators had not found evidence that the shooter acted with anyone else - though officials said they had uncovered troubling conduct by other Saudi military members training in the United States. Justice Department officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the diplomatically sensitive matter, said that while officials were confident Shamrani had no U.S.-based co-conspirator, they were still interested in potential interactions he might have had with those in Saudi Arabia.

 

Barr said investigators had found evidence that 17 Saudis had through social media shared jihadist or anti-American material and 15 - including some of those who had shared anti-American material - were found to have had contact with or possessed child pornography.

 

Barr said only one of those people had a significant number of images, and U.S. attorneys had reviewed each case and determined such people would not normally be charged with federal crimes. He said 21 cadets from Saudi Arabia had been disenrolled from their training and would be returning to the kingdom later Monday. Justice Department officials said 12 were from the Pensacola base, and nine were from other military bases.

Up to six dead and one arrest reported after a shooting in Rot am See, Baden-Württemberg (pop. 5,300). Reporting is very sketchy at this point, but speaks of a possible relationship drama.

26-year-old man opened fire with a legally-owned automatic pistol at a family gathering at his parent's restaurant, killing three each men and women aged 36 to 69. Two other relatives were severely wounded, one of which in critical condition. The shooter also threatened two kids aged 12 and 14, whose role is currently unclear. Afterwards he called police himself and surrendered to them.

The latest fashions in mass shootings have now reached Thailand.

 

Thailand shooting: Soldier's rampage kills at least 12


15 minutes ago

At least 12 people have been shot dead and many injured by a Thai soldier in the city of Nakhon Ratchasima (also known as Korat), police say.

 

A defence ministry spokesman told BBC Thai that Jakraphanth Thomma, a junior officer, had attacked his commanding officer before stealing a gun and ammunition from a military camp.

 

He then opened fire at a Buddhist temple and at a shopping centre in the city, north-east of Bangkok.

 

The suspect is still at large.

 

Local media footage appears to show the suspect getting out of a Humvee-type vehicle in front of the Terminal 21 shopping centre in the Muang district and firing shots as people flee. Other footage showed a fire outside the building, with some reports saying it was caused by a gas canister that exploded when shot at.

 

Authorities have been sealing off the centre as they try to track down the suspect, who is reportedly inside the building. Police have warned people to stay at home.

 

The Bangkok Post reported that the suspect, who it said was 32 years old, had taken hostages inside the building, but this has not been officially confirmed. More gunshots have reportedly been heard inside the building.

 

The suspect's motive remains unclear.

 

However, he posted on his social media accounts during the attack, with one post on Facebook asking whether he should surrender.

 

He had earlier posted an image of a pistol with three sets of bullets, along with the words "it is time to get excited" and "nobody can avoid death".

 

His Facebook page has now been taken down.

 

The Bangkok Post said the dead commander was Col Anantharot Krasae, and that a 63-year-old woman and another soldier had been killed at the military camp.

 

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha is following developments and expressed condolences to the families of those killed, a spokeswoman said.

Thailand shooting: Soldier who killed 26 is shot dead

2 hours ago

A soldier who killed 26 people in a gun rampage in the Thai city of Nakhon Ratchasima has been shot dead by the security forces, Thai police say.

 

Jakraphanth Thomma on Saturday killed his commanding officer before stealing weapons from a military camp.

 

The suspect continued his attack on the streets and in a shopping centre in Nakhon Ratchasima, also known as Korat.

 

The gunman, who posted material to social media, was shot dead after being cornered all night in the building.

 

Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha gave the higher death toll on Sunday, an increase from an earlier figure of 20. Fifty-seven people are wounded.

 

"It is unprecedented in Thailand, and I want this to be the last time this crisis happens," he said, after visiting the wounded at a hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima.

 

He said the motive for the attack appeared to be Jakraphanth's grudge after believing he had been cheated over a property deal.

Now 11 dead, shooter said to be German, licensed hunter.

 

 

Nach einer Schießerei am Mittwochabend in Hanau (wir berichteten) wurde der mutmaßliche Täter tot aufgefunden. Nach Aussagen von Zeugen erhielt die Polizei Hinweise auf ein flüchtendes Fahrzeug, das im Rahmen der Großfahndung im Ortsteil Kesselstadt ermittelt werden konnte. Die dortige Wohnanschrift wurde weiträumig abgesperrt und durch Spezialkräfte der Polizei durchsucht. Dabei wurden zwei weitere Leichen aufgefunden. Bei einer der toten Personen dürfte es sich mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit um den Täter handeln. Hinweise auf weitere Täter gibt es derzeit nicht. Die Zahl der Opfer, die an den Tatorten Heumarkt und Kurt-Schumacher-Platz tödlich verletzt wurden, erhöhte sich auf neun, so dass derzeit insgesamt elf Tote zu beklagen sind. Die Ermittlungen zur Identität der Opfer und des mutmaßlichen Täters dauern an. Die Kriminalpolizei bittet zur Erhellung des Sachverhalts um Hinweise unter der Rufnummer 06181 100-123.

Total of nine killed at a shisha bar and a second location variously reported as another of the same, a kebab or coffee booth; a tenth body found along with the suspected perpetrator's at the latter's place. He left a note, but authorities say his motive is currently unclear. Some media report a xenophobic motivation, which is supported by his apparent choice of targets.

 

SPD politicians have quickly seized upon this as "right-wing terror", probably encouraged by arrests of a dozen right-wingers earlier this week alleged to have planned attacks on mosques etc. across Germany with the aim to trigger "civil war". However, this guy is just as likely a general nutcase. Reportedly he uploaded a Youtube video some days ago in which he called upon Americans in fluent English to wake up to the fact that there are underground military bases in the US in which children are abused and Satan is worshipped.

Just read his manifesto. Pretty regular right-wing conspiracy nutcase with various genocidal fantasies against muslims. Also an incel, there's a whole chapter about his problems with women.

Full-blown psychiatric case. 43-year-old named as Tobias R., A-level high school graduate, civil substitute service, trained as a banker and studied business administration. No prior police record, never became conspicious as an extremist, licensed sports shooter checked upon just last year with no irregularities. Never seems to have had a girlfriend, lived with his mother whom he apparently shot before killing himself. So far, not unlikely the Halle wannabe synagogue shooter.

 

Per various online texts and video he left, he became convinced by the age of 22 that Germany was run by an organization masquerading as an intelligence service with the capability to read people's minds and remote-control them, by which he felt watched throughout his life. Also a German supremacist who thought that not just Islam was destructive, but various nations should be completely exterminated because they were contributing nothing good to mankind, including Israel, several in North Africa, and half of Asia. He also thought that at one point humanity should loop back in time and destroy Earth before its rise to prevent all the suffering it has caused throughout history.

 

Among the victims are reportedly several Turks/Kurds, a Bosnian, and a Polish waitress. The incident is being treated as an act of terrorism.

Some clarification coming in. Initial shooting occurred in- and outside a shisha and a coffee bar on the same street. Later a car was also fired at near a kiosk some way off. Nine people of immigrant background were killed, five of which Turkish citizens. Another five were wounded, one of which critically; again four of those had an immigration background. Witnesses and surveillance video led police to the suspected perpetrator's residence via his car plates, where an SEK found him and his 72-year-old mother dead. The same-aged father is alive and was taken in for questioning. Contrary to initial reports the perpetrator didn't have a hunting license but legally owned three handguns as a sports shooter. It is however currently unclear if those were used in the shooting.

And many others are following. What happened to 'no rush to judgement, no political instrumentalisation'? This time that is the line of the AfD.

As usual, terror attacks are either indicative of the inhumane ideology and ingrained aggressive culture of the group the attacker can be linked to, which can only be fought by banishing that group as a whole from society - or regrettable individual cases committed by deranged perpetrators whose motives go against anything that group stands for, and must not be instrumentalized against the latter for political gain.

 

There is no room for smugness by any camp which has been guilty of that in pointing out the same hypocrisy by others. Because come another attack politically more convenient to them, they will do the same again.

When does a lone lunatic's murder spree become terrorism? Does he need to claim membership or sympathy to an organization like Daesh? Was the New Zealand mosque attack an act of terror?
