Now hearing at least six are deceased, source CBS. Getting tired of seeing my fellow Americans being murdered by sociopaths with something to prove


Anyone notice the trend of vehicle's being weaponized? It has been going on in Europe and other gun-free countries for awhile, so I'm surprised it has taken this long to start here.

And I don't even want to hear it about guns, NYC already bans those (unless you're rich, or a politician). If, however, the "commoners" would've been armed, this psycho could've been put down more quickly.

It hit a school bus it is now being reported. Anyone else pick that up? Seems it could have been a lot worse.

According to Fox News, a Home Depot rental pick-up/dump truck was stopped by a citizen driving an empty school bus. Thats when the driver got out with as many as two weapons and started to wave them around. Perp started yelling Allah Ackbar. Police shot him twice.

Thank god the school bus wasn't targeted (at least not successfully, AFAIK)


Can't help but feel for those injured and killed though


This is out of control. We have a serious violent-people problem in this country.

BNONews says that it's being treated as a terrorist incident. Their source is Reuters

CBS news says suspect only had IMITATION firearms and gunshots heard were from Police officers putting the alleged-terrorist down.

To be clear, CBS is reporting this is a deliberate act of terrorism who used a vehicle as a weapon to take at least 6 innocent lives. This terrorist was (yet again) stopped by a good guy with a gun, although he survived (so far) his gun shot wounds and is at Bellevue hospital.

Per CBS news

just thinking about the bus driver, wonder if he is hailed as a hero or sued for jeopardizing the kids?

More guns are absolutely the answer. If you see a vehicle driving at you aggressively (and have a reasonable belief they intend to cause you severe bodily harm or death), you have every right to use your firearm to preventatively stop the driver & save your life and others.

More guns are generally the answer. Less guns is absolutely not the answer, especially given the frequency in which terrorists use vehicles and explosives (or acids, knives, etc) in locations where guns are banned or hard to acquire.

History and current events have shown us that terrorists and criminals will always find some kind of weapon to use against the innocent to take their lives. It just so happens that a firearm is (by design) the best weapon for accomplishing these goals, which is why it is so important that Citizens be armed with these firearms - because they are the most effective way to neutralize a deadly threat. When going up against a criminal/terrorist who is using a gun/car/knife/bomb/acid, it is always best to have the most appropriate weapon for the job - one that will accomplish your goal of stopping the threat as quickly as possible in order to preserve your life and the lives of others.

I now have images of dozens of cyclists strapped up with assault rifles, you know, just in case they have to shoot terrorists.
