    Can't even be safe at a Garlic Festival these days...

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/29/us/gi...day/index.html

    Now I guess we once again come to the part of the show where the left says, "See, these white nationalists are the real terrorists", and the right says, "I bet this is a liberal conspiracy and this guy was ANTIFA". When I look up at the stars and wonder where all the intelligent life is, I sadly need only look back down here to get my answer.

    I don't know, or care for that matter, if he favors left or right leanings. The important thing is, the shooter is beginning his eternal dirt nap.

    But it was a Gun Free Zone! In California! Was his gun on the DOJ accepted list?

    They know they will die doing it. They know it will be all over the news and a big deal. It's why they do it. Can someone take a dive off a tall building and have the blood suxing news media make a big deal out of it. I would tall about that twice as long. Cut his way into a gun free event. I'm safe from this. If it's a gun free zone I'm not in it.

    I'm more along the lines that we can't be safe from the news media.
    If they didn't peddle mayhem, misery and death we might be a bit better off.
    People die every day from all kinds of causes. It's on tv 24/7 in living color
    with the teleblabber trying their best to look and sound upset..
    It's become a non-event.

    We'll have to wait to hear more of the details, probably because they are still looking for accomplice/s...my guess however is that if the shooter was an NRA member and Trump supporter that we would have heard about it by now. That little boy's death tears me up...I hope that the killer's justice is being served now in the fires of eternal hell.

    Yeah! There were big signs that clearly stated "GUN FREE ZONE! NO GUNS ALLOWED!" See, that's the problem these days. The schools aren't teaching our kids to read!!!

    Zen, I think most all of us are as much against The Far Right as we are against the Far Left. Both are extremists, and when they perform terrorist attacks on anyone, we are saddened by it. Whether far right or far left...it hurts the position of law abiding gun owners, who want to be able to protect family, friends or other innocencents. California has some of the strictist gun and ammo laws in the country.

    Gilroy is a really neat little community, mixture of conservatives, migrant labor and enciters from time to time. My wife had a great aunt and uncle who were very successful produce farmers who worked their tails off during the depression to be able to wind up with 1900 acres after WWII with two miles bordering the Salinas river six miles south of Gilroy.

    This is just plain sad, no matter what end of the political spectrum or religious spectrum a terrorist comes from. None of us condone it. None of us condone a nut case wanting to go out in a blaze of glory. It happens.

    Just a reminder, an armed society is a polite society, and 95% of mass shootings occur in gun free zones!

    There was a big concert and fireworks display in "Discovery Green" which is in down town Houston this year. They've been doing this several years now. You won't see my lily white butt there, no sir! Firearms are verboten and, I mean, what could go wrong with loud bangs the norm, elbow to elbow drunks? Folks need to use their BRAIN'S. You'd have to be a brain dead idiot to go to something like that! Personally, I ain't going NOwhere without my weapon/s!!!!!!! The higher the threat, the more I want my weapons. And, if you wanna stay out of trouble, don't go looking for it! I celebrated the 4th by firing one round of 10 gauge.

    Besides, I don't like garlic all that much.
