I don't think the venue is really surprising. It has nothing to do with what the venue was...garlic festival, music festival, ren faire...this was an opportunity to inflict damage on a large group of people. This is no different than someone shooting up a mall, or any other public place.

This was an obviously unstable young man, who somehow managed to get his hands on a weapon, and went all postal on the closest large group of people he could find.

I think the organizers did their very best to try to protect the festival-goers and the vendors. I don't think you can keep people completely safe in this type of outdoor venue if someone is hell-bent on causing bloodshed. My heart still goes out to the victims and their families...and to you, too, Sahasrara, and your community.

It's called America. They're in the sporting goods section at Walmart next to the tents and fishing poles.

Well, if thats the case...it looks like somebody else did something and this whole thing will be buried in a month.

Exactly right.


We have got to get back to placing blame where it truly lies, with the person who did wrong.

The authority "of the area" will almost certainly not tell the public the real intentions of the murderer, or that he is a Muslim radical. They will try to hide his background, which is why his social media account, at least instagram, was taken down when he was identified. His anger probably comes from the claims of Omar and other radical Muslims whom the left voted as representatives as they themselves have made vicious radical verbal attacks towards the U.S. in general, including Omar whom in September 2017 labeled American troops as "satan" for the Mogadishu terrorist attacks on American troops.

To top it all these Muslim radicals who are now U.S. representatives have continued to lie claiming that anyone who dares criticize "their policies" must be a racist, and their attacks have included calling our POTUS as a racist whom is responsible for the "concentration camps" that Obama/Biden opened, and in which they began puting illegal immigrants in what the left are NOW calling "cages."

Since the "skin color" of the murderer is white that will be what the left, and probably the authorities "of the area" will use to claim the murderer is a racist, meanwhile leaving out the fact that he describes himself as an Italian-Iranian and idolizes his Muslim grandfather whom was a Shia zealot.

Most ANTIFA members, I'd comfortably say around 80% don't even know what they are fighting for and don't care.

Those people are psychopaths mostly, only joining the club to get the opportunity to garner some pleasure by harming people. They cant get their jollies while a democratic government is in power, so they join the other side in the hopes of fulfilling their bloodlust at some point, without consequence.

If the left ever gets full control and these animals became the foot soldiers/enforcers of a Communist regime, the acts they would commit will be horrendous and they would do it all with a smile on their faces.

Re: the 2nd shooter stuff, isn't the government always supposed to be trying to suppress all knowledge of a second shooter? At best, don't they try to keep it out of the official record? Because the feds have been out there since last night and this afternoon local law enforcement confirmed there were reports of a second shooter and that they're investigating those reports.

That's an awfully poor job of a government cover up wouldn't you say?

ETA: I see while I was gone one of our America-hating leftist members got themselves a new handle. Finally couldn't take it anymore and had to spew a diarrhea of their hatred all over the thread and promptly got the axe. More TDS.

He shouldn't have been able to purchase this weapon in Nevada if he's a California resident.

That's illegal here.

I wouldn't put it past the media to invent a new term like they did with "white Hispanic" ala Zimmerman. Okay, they didn't actually invent the term but it was seldom used until they were so excited to run with the whole "white man shot an unarmed black boy" narrative that they didn't do any research and didn't realize Zimmerman was Latino until after the fact, and then they had to spin the whole "white Hispanic" angle to try to salvage the narrative.

In Europe, some of the PC police have taken to calling Islamic radicals "southwest Asians" in their news pieces to avoid stigmatizing Muslims.

I got it, the media will call him a "white southwest Asian."

Well with the mention of the book title justifing "extreme right wing white supremacist" motives; the photos of a Muslim makes it islamic jihadist as well, right?

Just making statements of fact.

It is currently illegal for a California State resident to purchase a firearm of any kind in the state of Nevada.

Perhaps this person has residency in Nevada and decided to target a festival in California because of the lowered chance of an armed resistor.

Perhaps this person was the recipient of a straw purchase. Which is illegal federally and at the Nevada state level.

Unfortunately we have no real facts just yet as to how he actually acquired his rifle which is highly illegal in California.

The facts get even scarier. He knew the place had armed security. They were even screening people with wands at the entrance. He used bolt cutters to enter another way and bypass security. Armed officers responded in under a minute and he was still able to shoot how many people?

The ONLY real solution is 1) stop creating these shooters and 2) until then, stop leaving people sitting ducks. Let us #ing carry. That's the only thing that stops these people. Gun control doesn't work, they just ignore it. You can't depend on the police or security. Protect yourself. The real world isn't all hearts and flowers, unicorns and rainbows.

But I can see California making a new law that would make it illegal to bring any fire arm into the state that is banned in the state by any persons living outside the state. This could lead to illegal search and seizures of non-California residents coming into the state for hunting and recreational sporting events.

I believe I read he has family in both states. He grew up in Cali maybe lives in Nevada now.
