Mass shootings the MSM largely ignores
« on: June 05, 2022, 10:56:31 AM »

First off, 14 shot in Philadelphia last night
Sounds like it could have been a lot worse if a police office hadn't been right there.

Quote
Police Inspector D.F. Pace says police who were on patrol nearby responded ot the sound of gunfire and observed multiple gunmen firing into a crowd.

Inspector Pace said during a news conference that an officer shot at a suspect. It is unclear if the suspect was hit, but Pace says the suspect appeared to stop firing and dropped his firearm after he came under fire.

The weapon he dropped was equipped with an extended magazine, according to police.

The way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.

Commissioned peace officer or not.

I don’t think these qualify as “Mass Shootings” according to the normal definition of one shooter and mass casualties. Different type of perp and dynamic. They should not be conflated. Your point is correct in that they are sort of ignored, but they are sometimes used in the same statistic stats to inflate the number of so called “Mass Shootings” to get laws passed on fear at the same time they often ignored as they are more indicative of gang violence.

Sumdood shoots Dindu in the ass a half a block from the school, and that's a "school shooting."

It only happens here so remember this didn't really happen in Nigerian
They're still unsure of the number of dead but some reports place it at least 50

Yeah, nobody cares, dude. Don't you know that abortion has been banned in the US and women are indentured servants now!?! Get with the times. That mass murder stuff is for slow US news cycles.

Great. From the link:

Quote
The gunman was known to security services since 2015 as a "suspected radicalised Islamist", and had a history of mental illness, Norway's PST intelligence service said.

How many articles have we read following mass shootings that said, "The shooter was known to authorities"? Maybe instead of persecuting law-abiding gun owners the "authorities" should do something about taking the KNOWN nutcases off the streets -- or at least making certain that THEY don't have guns. It's not like the evil guns kidnapped the shooter, dragged him into the club, and forced him to start killing people.

Because most of the "door kickers" would rather do it to serve someone for traffic tickets?

Much less opportunity to contract high velocity lead poisoning harassing law abiding citizens than drug dealers and terrorists.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Pasty white skin, so probabl not a Muslim.

Looks like he is marching at port arms.

Sounds like he had a few loose screws
Quote
Police have refused to comment on the gunman's identity beyond confirming his nationality, ethnicity and age in accordance with Danish privacy laws, but there are suspicions the perpetrator recently posted multiple videos on YouTube entitled 'I don't care' in which he held firearms to his head.

Already beating the right wing WS drums

There are fears that the killer may be a white supremacist, reported to have supported a Danish far-right, anti-Islam party known as Hard Line.

Reported he used a SIG Sauer 200 STR https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIG_Sauer_200_STR
