From ABC News:
Cetin’s mother helped to identify him from surveillance camera images released by police. The arrest warrant said Cetin allegedly used a Ruger 10-22 that had a 25-round magazine.
This just shows that even if all AR-15s were banned crazy people will just go to the next available gun. Anti-gunners will use these instances to say there is a need to ban more and more guns until they are all banned.
From The Federalist:
It happens like clock work: as soon as there’s a mere whisper of a terrorist attack or a mass shooting, the usual suspects kick in to high gear. Their destination is always the same: a faraway land where a so-called assault weapons ban magically eliminates not only guns but also prevents guns from walking of their own volition, without need of human agency, into crowded places and killing people.
From National Review:
As soon as the story hit the news, the usual suspects began cranking themselves up. Americans, they said, need to “do something.” It was time, they argued, for “more laws.” And the NRA? It was, of course, to blame. Forgive me for being a broken record, but I have some questions in response to these reactions: Namely, “what something?”; “which laws?”; and “what, specifically, did the NRA do wrong here?” Rolled into one, these congeal into a single, simple inquiry: “What law — specifically — would have prevented yesterday’s shooting?”

From the Daily Democrat:
The gun dealers’ holiday season got off to a rousing start. State data show that sales transactions spiked on Black Friday — the traditional start of the holiday shopping season — to four times the average number for other November days.
That spike was roughly double the uptick in the days after Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, armed with two semi-automatic rifles and two semi-automatic handguns, killed 14 and injured 21 in a hail of bullets Dec. 2 at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. All of their firearms were purchased legally in California, which has some of the nation’s strictest gun laws.
The family released a statement calling her death an “ultimate irony” as she had fled to the U.S. as a teen to be safe from violent extremism.
From The Daily Mail:
Two Russian pilots were shot dead by Syrian rebels as they parachuted from their burning warplane, it has been claimed.
And a third was killed during a mission to rescue the pair as another rebel group shot a helicopter with an anti-tank missile.
Disturbing footage shows a dead pilot covered in blood, on the ground as anti-government fighters gather chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is great’.
From Navy Times:
A report distributed among senior Navy leaders during the shooting’s aftermath said Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, the support center’s commanding officer, used his personal firearm to engage Abdulazeez, Navy Times confirmed with four separate sources. A Navy official also confirmed a Washington Post report indicating one of the slain Marines may have been carrying a 9mm Glock and possibly returned fire on the gunman.
From Washington Times:
“Stripped of my God-given Right to arm myself, the only defensive posture I had left was to lie prostrate on the ground, and wait to die,” writes 1st Lieutenant Patrick Cook of the 49th Transportation Battalion, who witnessed the massacre firsthand.
From The New York Times:
An unarmed, emotionally disturbed man shot at by the police as he was lurching around traffic near Times Square in September has been charged with assault, on the theory that he was responsible for bullet wounds suffered by two bystanders, according to an indictment unsealed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Wednesday.
This is what happens in the era of “it’s not my fault”.
From Breitbart News:
All vehicle and pedestrian traffic into and out of the airport has been limited. LAPD is doing a sweep of the arrival area of Terminal 3. One witness, Robert Perez, said that TSA agents shouted that a man had a gun in the terminal. “I heard popping and everybody dropped to the ground,” Perez said. Another witness reported a dozen shots fired. A Federal Aviation Authority map already shows flight slowdowns thanks to the incident; the FAA was put on a ground hold.
This is dramatic proof of why it is so important to train to stay in the fight until the threat is neutralized. This shooter was mortally wounded yet continued to manipulate his weapon, move to cover, retreat to his vehicle while covering his movement, then drive the vehicle half a mile before succumbing to his wounds. Fortunately the officer recovered from his injuries.
