MechAg94 remarked,

"A red laser might distract him, but I would hope he is distracted by getting shot before he notices the laser."

True, but the hope that I might make a lucky disabling shot while my laser dot was dancing around was left unstated as being utterly unsavory to any Libwimps who happen to be reading APS.

I wish I knew more about Jack WIlson's sighting equipment and training habits... he's the church Deacon in Texas who dropped a shooter with one to the head.  DRT is better than a "disabling shot" in terms of ultimate expense to the State, but more bloodthirsty-sounding to the Libwimps.

REF: I was going to post a video of the event, but most of them seem to have deleted the indelicate part.  Me, I call that lying by omission, and serves only to mollify the Libwimps.

"Extra Credit"  Nice solid 13 minute interview with Deacon Wilson by two "sympatico" reporters. Note that the initial suspicion of the shooter's activity was not <ahem> paranoid.  "I took out evil."

I never heard anything about his gun except I thought it was a Sig in 357 Sig.  I assumed something like a P229, but not sure.  I have a police trade in P229 in 40.  That reminds me I need to get some night sights for it.

Shooting in California  last night https://www.wave3.com/2021/04/01/several-dead-california-shooting-business-building/
Murder / Suicide by cop?  Too early to know all that I guess.

Every local tragedy is now national news so they can be first when they finally get a white shooter and POC victims. Except in Chicago or Baltimore... How’s the hunt going for the klan in that Virginia Beach shooting BTW? Anyone hear more on how the Boulder shooter got to the States?

WLJ's cited article on the CA incident refers to a shooting that occurred in December 1997.  Was there any State or National gun legislation pending at that time?

Hawkmoon, you were keeping track of "mass" shootings. Does your data also show anything about gun legislation going on at those times?

There were no shootings in 1997, that was during the time of the magic assault weapons ban.

The shooter wasn't just not white. He was, wait for it -

No.

I generally try to keep an eye on what's being proposed, but I don't track proposed legislation formally, and there's no tie-in to my mass shooting spreadsheet.

Interesting.  When I click on the link in old icky yuchy obsolete IE11, the article comes right up, no problem.

In Brave, the popup (now that I actually read it) was a Brave-approved ad, so solution found.

The article is dated Dec. 20, 1997 12 AM PT.

Life goes on.  Forget it.

Yes, the article was about a 1997 shooting because I was responding to a comment that there were no shootings in 1997.

The remark about no shootings during the "magic" Assault Weapon Ban was a joke.  I remarked that I didn't get it right away.

Akin to our usual wisecracks about it being impossible for a gun violence incident to occur in California whenever they happen.

But linking current federal and state legislation to preventing horrors like Boulder is mere political opportunism. We must continue to work to keep firearms out of the wrong hands, but we must also recognize that we cannot legislate away evil.

Colorado gun owners are gearing up to oppose any new proposed restrictions, despite the fact that the most controversial proposal has not yet been introduced. After a gunman killed 10 people in Boulder, preliminary discussions are underway for a statewide assault weapons ban. Opposition for that measure does not just come from conservatives. Even among some Democratic voters and the party’s leaders who control the state legislature, it would be a difficult political lift.
