Forewarned Means Nothing

Like nobody could see this coming.  From Buffalo NY:

“A school official reported that this very troubled young man had made statements indicating that he wanted to do a shooting, either at a graduation ceremony, or sometime after.”

This led to a referral for the troubled teen to a mental health evaluation.

[But] Gendron was later able to purchase firearms in the state.

I was told that NY had the strictest gun-purchasing laws in the U.S., and their politicians are always wailing about criminals getting their guns from out of state.

Not our boy Payton.  Bought his AR-15 right there near his home town in NY, and then went a-hunting at a supermarket 200 miles away.

He should be executed, of course (and Charles Lehman agrees with me), but he won’t be.

Instead, we’ll be told that blame for this little episode lies with the gun / White supremacists / the NRA / Tucker Carlson / websites like this one, etc., instead of with a troubled kid and the authorities who knew all about him and did nothing.

And if the above seems a trifle strong to you, see what City Journal suggests.


Poor bastards.

A new national gun surrender will allow people to anonymously hand in weapons and ammunition including heirlooms, shotguns and antique revolvers, as well as illegal stun guns and gas-firing blank pistols bought overseas.

“They can do that anonymously and there will be an amnesty for them in order to transport that weapon or be in possession of that weapon at the point they surrender it.

“No-one needs to be concerned about walking into a station or contacting their local force.

“We don’t need to know your name, we don’t need to know how you came into possession of it, all we need you to do is give us the gun.”

Makes me sick.  Fucking totalitarian assholes.

Monday Funnies

Yeah, it’s Monday:

So on we go, trying to make sense of it all… through philosophy:

And speaking of grannies, here are a few recent pics of Jane Seymour (71):


And if she can do it, so can you.

Coming Restrictions

Here’s yet another ghastly story about drunken passengers, the only surprise being that the flight didn’t originate in Manchester:

A British passenger has been arrested after starting a huge brawl on a Wizz Air flight to Crete, throwing punches at other travellers and even the pilot, holidaymakers said.

The mass fight started shortly after the flight landed on the Greek island and saw women and men injured in the melee on Tuesday night.

The passenger and his friend were badly behaved throughout the flight and his anger boiled over when he was told police would escort him from the plane.

Yup.  I can see the time when passengers will be required to take a breathalyzer test prior to boarding, and those over a certain limit pushed onto a later flight.

And then everyone will whine and moan about not being able to “steady their nerves before the flight” (what bullshit), when in truth, as always, the problem has been caused by fools.

Nazzo Fast, Guido

There’s this (no link because paywall):

Ummm, at the risk of offending some people — and I have no truck with pro-abortion loonies harassing judges and bombing pro-life organizations, believe me — it seems that I do need to remind everyone that the anti-abortion groups have had their own nutcases in the past:  murdering abortion doctors, blockading and bombing abortion clinics and so on.

This is not a tu quoque  argument, by the way.  If someone tries to terrorize a judge for his opinion or ruling, or bombs a building, that by definition is terrorism.

Both sides stand accused.

And the “activist” media are assholes (and not just in this instance, either).
