An update from the Associated Press...

This from AP, was posted on Yahoo News this evening.

This is sickening. According to the AP, police arrived within two minutes of the 911 call being made and then,

Quote: "Police heard no gunfire after they arrived but waited for about an hour before entering the building to make sure it was safe for officers. They then spent two hours searching the building."

This means they wanted to make sure people were dead! Hopefully the shooter also would be dead. Dead men tell no tales.

Folks, Officer safety means EVERYTHING! If you find yourself in a living hell with an active shooter, you are on your own! If you expect Johnny Law to come swooping in like Mighty Mouse and save the day, think again. It is YOU and the bad guy. Period! Mighty Mouse will attend the event when he believes it is safe for HIM.

Quote: "The man believed to have carried out the attack was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in an office, a satchel containing ammunition slung around his neck, authorities said. Police found two handguns — a 9mm and a .45-caliber — and a hunting knife."

Dear Lord, he had a knife????

Quote: "They led a number of men out of the building in plastic handcuffs while they tried to sort out the victims from the killer or killers."

There you have it folks. That is Police doctrine. EVERYONE is a criminal until they prove otherwise. If you find yourself in hell with an active shooter, you had better NOT be in possession of a self defense tool. If you have the means to defend yourself and worse, if you actually do, YOU WILL be considered he enemy. Period!

Jeepers Creepers, maybe the actual bad guy was the one found dead with a self inflicted gunshot wound, with a satchel around his neck containing ammunition. I dunno, maybe.

Quote: "The suspected gunman carried ID with the name of 42-year-old Jiverly Voong, of nearby Johnson City, N.Y., but that was believed to be an alias, said a law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

A second law enforcement official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said the two handguns were registered to Jiverly Wong, another name the man used. Both officials were not authorized to speak publicly."

Notice how this anonymous senior official didn't say "his actual name". He said, "another name".

You mean to tell me, that with New York state's gun registration program, a person can assume an alias, go register his guns under an alias, and the police will never know the difference? Or, is it legal, in New York, to register one's guns under an other's (living or dead) name? Is there an Identification Document required?

Funny how the police knew this right away, huh? Funny how an embarrassing detail such as this made it to the press so quickly.

Folks, this stinks to high heaven. Someone in the State of New York needs to un-ass some facts and tell the truth. A firearm didn't commit this crime. A peaceful citizen didn't commit this crime. A gun registration program didn't prevent this crime. Police didn't intervene to stop this crime once it was in progress. NOT ONE citizen/victim had the means or the will to stop the murderer once he began his work. Not one.

But hey, we have hopeandchange!

"Where's my check?"

Same formula, diferent day...

Here we go again. This time in Binghamton, New York, where strict gun control laws are in place. A mass shooting at an "immigrant services center".

The following information comes from

Quote: "The dead gunman was carrying identification with the name Jiverly Voong, age 42, from upstate New York, reports CBS News correspondent Bob Orr. He apparently acted alone although investigators are still questioning a number of people who were inside. The motive is not known."

He was recently "let go" from IBM...that is always a good reason to go on a murder spree.

Continuing, quote: "A woman who answered the phone at a listing for Henry D. Voong said she was Jiverly Voong's sister but would not give her name.", and then, "Asked if she was aware that he might have been involved in the shooting, she said: "How? He didn't have a gun. I think somebody involved, not him. I think he got shot by somebody else."

It looks like the shooter's own sister doesn't believe her brother had a gun, or could shoot anyone. Again quoting her, "I think there's a misunderstanding over here because I want to know, too..."

The news media NEVER make an effort to get the details correct when writing a news piece about guns or shooting. For example, here is what said the shooter had, and I quote, "who was also carrying a bag with two guns -- a 9mm with an extended clip (Extended clip? We should ban those...right?), and a .45mm...". A point four five milimeter...are those dangerous? I guess it depends on velocity.

He had a 9mm. (insert weaselly, nasal voice here) Aren't those the really bad kind? And it had an "extended clip" !!! An exended clip? Dear Lord!

The news will slowly trickle out that this was a lone gunman, that there were no warning signs, that he bought his guns illegally...etc. Most importantly, and this HASN'T been reported...yet, he will be found to have been on Prozac or Paxil or some other SSRI type drug.

The Brady Bunch and Schumer, Feinstein will do their ritual blood dance. Our "President", pardon my while I spit, will have a news conference in Europe and tell the world that Americans are too well armed and that all the rational people in the United States are calling for gun bans and more strict regulation.

It makes my blood boil that NO ONE in public office is calling this what it is. New York state is one big Victim Disarmament Zone. Every miscreant knows it. Any one person, properly armed, could have stopped the shooter. Any passerby could have come to aid those inside. But, New York state makes sure that few people are armed and able to defend temselves or someone else.

Anyone else see the pattern here?
