Colorado shooting stopped by gun armed Walmart customers!

08 NOV 2017 (01:40 UTC-07 Tango 06) 17 Aban 1396/18 Safar 1439/20 Xin-Hai 4715

Security camera image of shooter as he entered the Walmart

Anybody remember the recent shooting in Thornton, Colorado?  Anybody remember the mainstream real fake news media telling you how the gunman was driven away by Walmart customers who drew their own guns on him?

Most mainstream real-fake news outlets said the gunman walked in, randomly shot people, and then suddenly left.   Turns out that’s not what happened.  The shooter left because gun-armed citizens drew-down on him: “Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said Thursday that investigators reviewed store surveillance footage Wednesday night and saw ‘a few’ people inside the store who drew weapons in response to the gunfire.“-The Associated Press

The left-wing-liberal-fake-news The Denver Post, citing taxpayer funded anti-gun police-state cops, accused the citizens defending themselves saying they “ultimately delayed the investigation” by ‘forcing’ police to watch the videos.  That’s a bold faced lie!   Fact, security camera video clearly shows who did the shooting, and who was protecting themselves! Ultimate Fact, police would have had to watch that video anyway, it’s their job!  

Here’s another fact, the shooting was done and over before police arrived, possibly because shoppers drew guns on the shooter!   It took five hours for cops to make an official public announcement as to what was going on, but local TV station KUSA 9News explained the real reason for the ‘delayed investigation’, quoting the same police spokesperson that anti-gun The Denver Post paraphrased: We had hundreds of people self-evacuating from a large establishment so we’ve got people leaving, we’ve got cars leaving so we’ve got officers out there trying to be able to cordon off the area to determine that’s an actual suspect that’s leaving. We did that as quickly as we could. Again, we had to render the area safe. We can’t just send somebody in — an employee from Walmart — to start reviewing the footage. So once we were able to safely allow a Walmart employee in to start going over the footage, we had detectives come in and we started to go over the footage.”Victor Avila, public information officer Thornton Police

Here’s something else KUSA 9News discovered, all Walmart security camera video can be accessed remotely through the company’s Arkansas HQ: “Staff at the headquarters can share the images and video with police when requested, so investigators don’t need to wait to enter a store.”

So again, anti-gun real-fake news The Denver Post is full of shit!

USAF failed to comply with law, enabling Texas church shooter!

07 NOV 2017 (02:02 UTC-07 Tango 06) 16 Aban 1396/17 Safar 1439/19 Xin-Hai 4715

Many anti-2nd Amendment nuts once again call for more laws, refusing to recognize that existing laws were ignored by the United States Air Force!  The man who attacked the Sutherland Springs church in Texas had a criminal military background, that under current U.S. law should have been passed onto the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) but was not.  That info would have prevented the man from buying guns legally.  The ‘christian’ dominated U.S. Air Force claims it is investigating to find out why they didn’t comply with federal law.

The openly anti-2nd Amendment PBSNewsHour reported that witnesses said the Texas church shooter was dressed in black and wearing a skull mask on his face.   This type of ‘uniform’ is typical of what was seen during the U.S.-EU-NATO backed coup in Ukraine.

U.S.-EU-NATO backed Ukrainian personnel, from the first year of the war (2014-2015)

Usually, during wars the symbol of the skull has been used mainly by right wing/nationalist groups/units.  The skull has also become the symbol of some U.S. mercenary organizations (legally called military contractors, or security contractors), especially the group known as Craft International.

Also, the shooters in the 2015 San Bernardino, California, incident were described as wearing military style tactical clothing.  Witnesses also insisted there were at least three shooters, all men, contrary to what the official police report said.

Similar witness reports were made during the recent Las Vegas, Nevada, shootings.  Initially even police on the scene described multiple shooters (I remember from reading their own ‘live’ social media posts, which law enforcement administrators later denied that such posts were made).  The official timeline of events repeatedly changed in the days afterwards.  And what’s the true reason why a hotel security guard, supposedly key in the establishment of the timeline, went missing for days before suddenly appearing on a TV talk show!  Many witnesses posted on social media their own video reports challenging the official series of events. Also, Why Did the Islamic State Claim the Las Vegas Shooting?

Ever since the War on Terror began, mass shooters in the U.S. have used the same inefficient low power assault rifle based on the old (and crappy) Vietnam era AR-15/M-16.   The mainstream news media, and even police-state cops, call the weapon “high-power”, I’ve shown before that it is not a true high-power weapon.

Perhaps because of strict anti-2nd Amendment laws California cops are now being targeted by gun thieves.

It’s been revealed that on 03 NOV 2017 a San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputy lost his shotgun, rifle, ammunition and bullet-proof vest when thieves broke into his ‘unmarked’ cop car while he was attending a meeting held by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Local news media intimated that the deputy failed to follow rules about ‘locking down’ guns in his car, despite being a deputy for 15 years.

This is not the first time California cops had their guns stolen.  In 2016 the Bay Area News Group published the results of their investigation into thieves targeting California cops’ guns.  The report is titled Disarmed and dangerous: Officers across the Bay Area and state are losing firearms at an astonishing rate — and the consequences can be deadly.

California has some of the most strict anti-2nd Amendment laws of any U.S. state, yet the laws didn’t stop a church shooting in Fresno.

On 05 NOV 2017, a man and woman were shot and killed behind the Saint Alphonsus Church.  Police say it was an upset estranged husband who shot and killed his wife and her boyfriend.  The shooter apparently admitted to the deed in text messages to his daughter, right before killing himself.

Texas lawman charged with using a Gun during Road Rage incident!

06 NOV 2017 (14:37 UTC-07 Tango 06) 15 Aban 1396/16 Safar 1439/18 Xin-Hai 4715

More proof you can’t trust law enforcers with guns; in Corpus Christi a Texas judge charged with threatening people with a gun during a road rage incident.

District Judge Guy Williams pled not guilty on 04 NOV 2017, to charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which allegedly took place in April.  The trial is set for March 2018.

The judge posted bond, but then learned posting bond meant giving up his Right to possess guns: “Y’all are going to require that I give up all my firearms, even in my household?   ……I’ve had violent threats levied against me, so y’all are leaving me at home without protection.”-Guy Williams
