Two People Shot In California High School

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With gun tzar Joe Biden expected to propose his "gun recommendations" to Obama by next Tuesday, a proposal which will certainly involve some additional measure of gun control, the last thing the nation needed was more gas being poured into the fire today. Yet that is precisely what it got following news that two people had been shot, one of which reportedly a student, at Taft Union High School in the San Joaquin Valley in California earlier. From AP: "A student was shot and wounded at a San Joaquin Valley high school Thursday and a suspect was taken into custody, officials said. The shooting occurred about 9 a.m. at Taft Union High School, an oil and agricultural community about 120 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The student who was shot was flown to a hospital in Bakersfield, said Ray Pruitt, spokesman for the Kern County Sheriff’s Department. There was no immediate word on the victim’s condition. “We have a suspect in custody,” Pruitt said, adding that the person was believed to be a student. Pruitt said it’s believed a shotgun was used in the attack. KERO-TV Bakersfield reported that the station received phone calls from people inside the school who hid in closets."

Reuters adds: "A California ABC affiliate reported that sheriff's deputies were going room-by-room to secure the school and that two people had been shot, but had no immediate word on their condition. It said the shooter had been apprehended by police." Needless to say this will merely inflame tensions over both the cause of such incidents, as well as the mandated response, yet will hardly lead to an amicable resolution for people on both sides of the argument.

Meanwhile, USA today reports:

Vice President Biden said Thursday that he plans to deliver his gun violence task force's recommendations to President Obama by early next week.

 

"I have committed to him that I will have the recommendations to him by Tuesday," Biden said.

 

The vice president's comments came at the start of a meeting with representatives of hunters and wildlife interest groups. Biden was tapped to develop a broad set of recommendations for Obama in the aftermath of last month's shooting tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

 

The vice president said he is considering several recommendations he has heard repeatedly from stakeholders — including instituting universal background checks and limiting size of high-capacity magazines.

 

"There is a surprising, so far, recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks," Biden said.

 

Later Thursday afternoon, Biden and other senior administration officials will meet with representatives from gun rights groups, including James Baker, legislative director of the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA).

 

Biden, along with Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, are also scheduled to meet with entertainment industry executives later Thursday.

At this rate February is shaping up to be quite an active month: the debt ceiling, the sequester, possibly more tax hikes, and to top it all: gun control. At least the market is convinced that all will be promptly and effectively resolved, if few others.

Yesterday :

Bakersfield school officials take part in shooting survival training

Officials from Southern California colleges and schools are being trained in how to survive an attack by a campus gunman.

A two-day seminar concluded Tuesday with a simulated gunman stalking a dormitory at San Diego State University. About two dozen participants from school districts and universities in San Diego County, Los Angeles and Bakersfield, along with some police and private security personnel, took part.

They practiced barricading doors, hiding, escaping and confronting the gunman.

All a big coincidence i'm sure.

BTW it took the cops 20 minutes to show up.

Two thoughts ...

2) Schools are obviously an attractive nuisance to shooters ... it's the schools we need to ban.

If this proves true, it would reveal all that everyone already knows. There is a hard agenda of gun control at work that comes down to more profiting for the gun and ammo manufacturers at first, and then the disarming of America for a future attack from outside. All this is something to investigate. Like this report about the Cali False Flag Event that just took place. Did someone have preconceived knowledge that this was going to happen and then post it on LOP?

I've suspected that there is a direction behind all of these for about a year.  But I believe it has to do with suicide hotlines.  I've caught assholes in ircc trying to get people to do stupid things and I've seen it posted in various forums.  Someone is driving this.  A kid will come in with a "bawl thread", there will be the attempt to talk them down then a dogpile of assholes will storm a usually quiet thread, giving kids explicit instructions on where to get guns, ammo, money, everything. 

These kids are getting profiled and stalked.  Suicidal, Male, white, basement dweller, 18-25, likes video games, filthy humour and porn.  Someone pushes their buttons with this nonsense.  Then they get turned lose. 

LOP is just a corkboard.  That was noticed because there are anons out there with nothing better to do than find this stuff that were raising flags about it.  I believe they were attempting to notify authories and they were unsuccessful.

Restrictions of private firearm ownership and gun confiscation led to the killing of over 100 million people

An ultimate pro-gun debate point

The 'genocide chart', with nine 20th century government episodes of governments killing millions ...

The common element in each one, was government confiscating guns beforehand

Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Nationalist China, Communist China, Turkey, Guatemala, Uganda, Cambodia and most recently Rwanda in the 1990s

Specific laws to limit and confiscate privately-owned guns, documented in each case

From the Jews for Preservation of Firearms Ownership, or JPFO, 'Death by Gun Control'

Maybe we are looking at it from the wrong angle?  

Why not make it illegal to get hit by a bullet?

If you search the news briefs on my local online rag (WRAL) you will see 5 or 6 shootings a night.  Mostly Durham or Fayettenam, but shootings are pretty common.

As are the home invasions with rapes and shootings, etc.

This is what happens when society cracks.  Toss in how we have this collective delusion that we are not totally fucked and you have some cog dis stress to leverage it up.

When people snap, the snap on those closest to them.

Life ain't sunshine and roses.  There are very bad people out there.

That is why you NEED 20 rds of 7.62x51(or 39 for our russian friends) to stop this shit pronto.

I have seen zero news reports on the internet of anyone being victimized by a perp who was previously shot dead by an HK, FN FAL, etc.

Nope, we have to pretend things are fine and let the hordes rape and pillage the most vulnerable among us.

Or we can be brave and dial 911 for the state to come and save us.

Fuck em, break into my house and I will keep shooting till all my mags are empty.  No open casket for you.

if they bust in my door,  will be a different story, i have weapons all over the doggone place not many places in my home where 2 are not within easy reach. all locked and cocked.

 

i notice that most of the perps caught have long, extensive records and convictions,  80% are out-on-parole, whatever that means anymore.  i mean the parole system really protects people like the president of the student body at unc,  the admin that overlooked them couldn't even be fired or disciplined, sheesh what a system.

Here's the scoop on this shooting:

Shooter was a student who had been bullied by the victim; went home, returned with shotgun and fired on bully. Second victim was teacher who got caught in cross-fire - minor injuries; refused medical treatment.

First victim was airlifted to local hospital, where he is now expected to survive.

So now we have two hotbutton issues to hear the pundicts whine about:

1) Gun control

2) Bullying

There are seemingly drills and practices because every county in the country is now conducting them round the clock.   Speeders are safer now that law enforcement has been redirected.  I cannot imagine why anyone in their right mind would think a single deranged blast with a shotgun was part of some conspiracy.  Wouldn't you think they'd at least use a repeating gun to enforce current thinking? 

I grew up where everyone had guns.  I took an NRA safety course and soon learned I hated hunting or shooting a gun.  But I cannot recall where folks routinely went insane such as occurs today.  It was beyond the realm.

Also, since the level of narcissism in our society is at an all time high, as more and more people come to the realization that they aren't all rock and movie stars, the realignment of their self-images may be expressed violently and outwardly in many cases.  What I'm saying is, expect more public shootings and plan accordingly.

There are thousands of shootings each year and now every single one of them will be featured news. The miliion occasions on which Americans use a gun to protect themselves and their loved ones each year from such attacks will hardly be noted.

Piers "Redcoat" Morgan is trying to re-make his "career" as a libtard mouthpiece for the anti-gunners.  He should move his show to MSNBC were he would find a receptive audience.  

Maybe FOX should have a half hour show devoted to law abiding citizens using firearms to protect themselves and their families?  Feature three stories a show of someone using a gun in self-defense.  I would watch it.

Close to 500,000 deaths because of cigarettes per year. Where is the working group to eliminate cigarettes? 

We don't seem to have a problem with war deaths and causalties. Where's the working group on ending offensive warfare?

Drunk driving?

Pharmacology?

Idiotic behavior? 

Pollution? 

We haven't even discussed governmental tyranny, banker criminality, corporate rape and pillage. Why don't these little groups figure out why people are so pissed off, they run around shooting people? 

Wait, all those things kill off the population, but guns, guns just might get aimed at them if things get bad enough... I guess I can see their motivation...

Nigger is simply the name for black "white trash".   And being called "white trash" speaks for itself.  Each group is equally reprehensible.  Unfortunately LBJ's Great Society programs and the subsequent creation of generational welfare has greatly increased the ranks of niggers and white trash.

That is it in a nutshell.  It is calling a spade a spade whether they be white or black.

A 19-year-old man was shot in the face on a subway platform in Brooklyn early Thursday, police said.

The victim was shot on a No. 3 train platform in Brownsville near Saratoga Avenue at about 2 a.m. He was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

The circumstances leading up to the shooting weren't immediately clear.

No arrests have been made.

I think you are getting confused, cars are a mode of transport, guns are designed to kill. Deaths by automobile accidents are likely to be accidents, when someone points a gun at you and shoots the intention is murder. If you can't tell the difference please hand in your guns at the nearest police station.

Once again, proving how full of shit you really are.

In actual fact, the vast majority of times that guns are pointed at others, it is done in self-defense, NOT murder.  Or would you say that every time a policeman removes his gun from its holster in the courss of his duty he has automatically become a murderer?  Is the person defending his home and life from the meth-crazed armed intruder a "murderer" too?  Is the woman who removes the concealed gun from her purse to scare off the would-be rapist a "murderer" as well?

Actually killing someone spontaneously can be classed as murder, until an investigation is carried out to ascertain it was indeed self defence or not. A good idea would be to remove all guns and give the good citizens Tasers and or pepper spray, good self defence weapons. No one needs to then get killed. Death is so final after all;  there is good in everyone.

I really don't think D.C. has anything to worry about, every gun owner is waiting for some other gun owner to start the so-called "revolution", therefore it won't ever happen.

People forget how the 1776 revolution started.  It started at the top with a government decree of independence from Britain. 

Next revolution would have to start at the bottom, grass roots level.  And they wouldn't be simply drivng out some foreign soldiers.  They would be going up against a huge firmly entrenched govt here, along with nearly half the population supporting that govt.

Those 3 factors make another revolution impossible.  (a) having to start at the grass roots level, (b) huge well entrenched govt, and (c) half the people supporting that govt.

GOs are focused on universal gun confiscation, whilch will never happen, yet they have no problem being taxed 10 times more than the colonists were when they started a revolution primarily over taxes.

So no, GOs will never do more than bitch.  Everybody in D.C. knows it.
