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 ...

1)  Only two? That's not even worthy of mention in a crawl much less a headline.

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

This would not have occurred if California banned high capacity magazines and assault weapons.

Wait...they already have?

When then the only reasonable step is to ban all guns.

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'

“The public wants us to act,”

Yes, we do want to act Mr. Biden. We want you to do your REAL JOB!

We are sick and tired of you just catering to the Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’ who we know who are Globalists Devil Worshippers who want complete control over all USA Citizens by grabbing our guns.

Tell your Black Ops Goons to stop running their False Flag Operations at the Schools and elsewhere, and you need to start doing your Freakin Real Job Mr. Biden. Work on the Economy, Jobs, and your other Duties stated by the USA Constitution. Stealing our 2nd Amendment of our USA Constitution is Treason Mr. Gun Grabbing Biden. The Tax Payers of the USA are not paying your Salary to Steal Our Guns you Idiot.

Hey Biden:

Just ask the Guy sitting next to you about Illegal Guns and Gangs Information: you know the guy sitting next to you: don’t you? His name is: Eric Gun Running Holder: Mr. Fast and Furious himself: ask him Biden, Mr. Holder is the expert about Illegal Guns getting in the hands of Mexican Gangs.

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.

Cool, WRAL-region local here as well.  That Raleigh Oakwood home invasion resulting in a shooting and sexual assault could have been stopped with a firearm.  Or even just a deadbolt on the bedroom door.  People need to think about passive defense (deadbolts, steel doors/door frames) also with the future deterioration of society.
