Anyone mention the odd timing with the FBI announcement of adding certain people to the "Terrorist" list? Seems a little suspicious to me.

That reminds me ... we've seen the deep wisdom of Pelosi and Schumer, but the Squad has been silent.

I wonder if we'll find out he was on their watch list all along. You know, like some of the others.

Everyone knows you can unlock your phone or most phones, with your fingerprint.
The gun industry needs to look hard into biometric safeties on every gun.
Something along the lines of this -



Kloepfer designed a smart handgun that fires only when a finger it recognizes is on the grip. More than 1,000 fingerprints can be authorized per gun, and Kloepfer says the sensor is 99.999 percent accurate. A child can’t fire the gun. Neither can a thief — important here in a country in which more than 150,000 guns are stolen annually.

Obviously it wouldn’t matter to any of the millions of guns already out in circulation but as a law abiding gun owner, I would be willing trade my guns in for new guns with biometric safeties on them as long there was no cost to me.
Just an even trade on the government’s dime.

I heard him say he and another man grabbed kids and left. I don't know if he had a firearm in hand. He wasn't roaming the mall.

If they are smart they will get some actual facts before they start.

Also since they are always claiming "no body wants to take your guns," and we are in the middle of a crucial election, they have to formulate something that won't spook the moderates.

I don't think it'll make much difference.

Cartels will run illegal guns over the borders and they'll get into the inner cities. People who want to do stuff will buy them.

And a lot of these are done with legal purchases. The one at Gilroy was legally purchased and then illegally taken to Gilroy. A lot of this type of shooting are done by people who have no real prior history so there is no real reason to deny them a purchase.

That and AOC's staff resignations were part of the deal they cut with Pelosi.

News reports said he had his weapon unholstered, which the police then confiscated.

Stepped out for a bit, back watching.

CBSN is stating gunman posted manifesto.

So if that's verified or not, atleast some cherrypicked quotes from it can be used for whatever narrative will be pushed soon.

CNN confirming that Facebook and Instagram took down the accounts.

Still reporting that no one can confirm the manifesto, but they are looking at it.


Two federal law enforcement sources told CNN that investigators are reviewing an online writing posted days before the shooting that may speak to a motive. The online posting was believed to be written by Crusius, the sources said, but that hasn't been confirmed.

Yeah it would absolutely never be a 100% solution, in fact it might not even hit a 50% solution but I think it’s something that needs to be considered.

They did look into this. Some manufacturers even produced a few. Nobody buys them because they're unreliable. It also wouldn't make a difference, for reasons already stated here.

ETA: Here's a good read explaining why smart guns aren't the answer.

Good for him. At least he wasn't going to stand around an be killed by the gunman.

CNN not confirming yet that alleged shooter Crusius and suspect taken into custody are the same. They do say the suspect in custody is a white male in his 20s.

Personally, I don't like the idea of something that could malfunction and keep me from using the gun or someone else using it if need be.
