I’m sorry to say yet another school shooting has taken place at a community college in Oregon. 10 are reported dead.
As Stacy McCain has said we don’t know all the facts so I’d take everything on social media with a grain of salt at this time and even the stuff on CNN, FOX MSNBC etc is based on initial reports so one should be very careful before we attempt to figure out motive, number of shooters etc etc etc.
However there is one fact that we can note. Umpqua Community College is a “gun free zone” and on CNN at 3:32 PM the person Brooke Baldwin was speaking in response to noting this was a “Gun Free Zone” said the following:
‘Gun Free Zone’ means nothing to the shooter.
When you create a gun free zone you don’t make people safer, you turn an area into a hunting preserve for killers and terrorists.
This is a lesson that needs to be learned and until this is, we will see more and more of this.
That’s all I have to say for now.
Update 2: From the press conference: “Do you have armed security guards on campus?” “No I do not.”
Update 3: shot

In August, Oregon enacted a new strict gun-control law. http://t.co/rlCKBZ7u99

Update 4: the NY Post reported that the shooter was singling out Christians:
A woman who claimed to have a grandmother inside a writing class in Snyder Hall, where a portion the massacre unfolded, described the scene in a tweet.
“The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” she wrote. “If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs. My grandma just got to my house, and she was in the room. She wasn’t shot, but she is very upset.
I was hesitant to put this up because it was not from a live source but Time Magazine now has an actual person on the record saying this:
Student Kortney Moore, 18, said the gunman shot her teacher in the head, then asked others in the classroom about their religion before shooting again, according to the News-Review, a local newspaper.
linking to this:
Kortney Moore, 18, from Rogue River, was in her Writing 115 class in Snyder Hall when one shot came through a window. She saw her teacher get shot in the head. The shooter was inside at that point, and he told people to get on the ground. The shooter was asking people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing away, Moore said. Moore was lying there with people who had been shot.
That give the NY Post enough credibility to repeat and said story now includes this:
Kortney Moore, an 18-year-old student at Umpqua Community College who was also in the room, told Oregon’s News Review that the shooter was indeed on the hunt for Christians.
I predict that if this pans out Barack Obama & Democrats will regret his suggestion to politicize this issue.
Update 5: The “targeting christians” is now the headline of targeting Christians, CNN is staying away from this but was happy to bring an Obama hack to attack the #GOP.
The only pay I get for this work comes from you. My goal for 2015 is $22,000.
Given that fact and the discovery that the repairs needed for my car that failed inspection will run between $500-$1000 I would I ask you to please consider hitting DaTipJar.
That gets all the bills paid. Consider Subscribing 100 Subscribers at $20 a month will get the job done and then some.
Additionally our subscribers get our podcast emailed directly to them before it show up anywhere else.
I know you can get the MSM for nothing, but that’s pretty much what most of them are worth.
