Florida shooting: MSM don’t miss opportunity to attack Trump

US President Donald Trump has called the suspect in the mass school shooting in Florida “mentally disturbed” as he vowed to help local jurisdictions tackle mental health issues, but he made no mention of stricter gun control laws.

That’s because stricter gun control wouldn’t have made a difference.

[…]Trump pledged his administration would help “tackle the difficult issue of mental health” and said the issue of improving safety in schools would be the top priority during a meeting later this month with governors and state attorneys general. Yet Trump made no mention of gun control laws in the aftermath of the third-deadliest school shooting in US history.

The shooter passed the background check and didn’t have a criminal record.

Brenda Ann Spencer (born April 3, 1962) is a convicted American murderer who carried out a shooting spree from her home in San Diego, on January 29, 1979.

?I Don?t Like Mondays?

Brenda Ann Spencer won worldwide notoriety when, as a freckled 16-year-old proclaiming, “I don’t like Mondays,” Spencer sprayed a San Diego elementary school playground with .22-caliber semiautomatic sniper fire.

Monday mornings are tough for everyone, but on Jan. 29, 1979, a freckle-faced red-headed teen found a unique way to sing the beginning-of-the-week blues.

The first note of her displeasure ? a rifle crack ? came at around 8:30 a.m., just as a bell rang to signal the start of classes at Grover Cleveland Elementary in San Carlos, Calif., a suburb of San Diego. Children waiting in front of the school started to fall to the ground, bleeding. The sounds of gunfire continued.

It took a few shots before the pupils, parents, and teachers realized what was happening. A sniper, somewhere in the row of houses across the street from the school, was using the children for target practice. With children screaming and bullets flying, Cleveland elementary?s principal, Burton Wragg, ran outside to help the victims and move the other children, who were paralyzed with fear, out of harm’s way. There was another pop and Wragg fell, shot in the chest. Mike Suchar,? the school custodian, rushed out to help and was also shot. Teachers and students barricaded themselves in the school, while nurses treated the wounded. Four victims, however, were still outside. San Diego police officer Robert Robb, first to arrive at the scene, got a bullet in his neck.

The shooting continued until another officer, aided by a security guard from a neighbouring high school, commandeered a garbage truck and drove it in front of Cleveland Elementary, blocking the sniper?s sightlines.

Breaking: 9 people shot, 3 dead in shooting at Fort Lauderdale Airport

I will update as more news comes to hand. Attacks at airports are becoming almost commonplace. I actually?wondered whether or not to even cover it. If this is Islamic terrorism yet again it has already become the new normal. Are you currently wondering if yet another mad Jehovah’s witness has gone crazy shooting people while yelling, ” Hello, I am making just a brief call to share an important message with you. Please note what it says here in the bible, what do you think about that? Does it sound good to you? ” Or are you thinking that this is most likely another Islamic terror attack and he is yelling ” Allah snack bar ”

Nine people have been shot and at least three are dead after a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday, local law enforcement and federal officials told NBC News.

The shooter is in custody, and the motive is unknown at this time, law enforcement officials said. The airport tweeted that the incident took place at the Terminal 2 baggage claim area.

Hundreds of passengers and airport workers could be seen gathering and evacuating via the tarmac.

Shooting appeared to have happened in the baggage area of terminal 2.

A?suspect is in custody, according to CBS.

The mayor said there was only one shooting suspect.

People are now gathered on the tarmac, where buses are working to pick them up and get them to a more secure location.

The shooter behind the rampage at a Florida Airport has been named as Esteban Santiago and was reportedly carrying military identification.

Santiago is reportedly in his 20s and appeared alone in the Terminal 2 baggage claim claim area wearing a Star Wars shirt.
Witnesses say he appeared to randomly target his victims during the shooting spree which has left at at least five people dead and many more injured.

He was apprehended by authorities when he stopped shooting to reload, witnesses said.

…Senator Bill Nelson named Esteban on MSNBC, saying he was carrying military identification.

…?He had what looked like a 9mm and emptied his entire clip. People were trying to run.?
Lea said police responded in less than a minute after the shooting began.

Once the gunman was out of bullets, ?he was gunned down by police,? he added.

…?People were scared and frantically running to avoid being shot. People were tripping over each other. They were trying to make a fast exit out of the door.?

Esteban Santiago, reportedly a U.S. citizen with military identification, is accused of being the shooter who randomly gunned down at least 13 people at a Fort Lauderdale airport baggage claim area.

MSNBC said the shooter may have retrieved a gun from his luggage after arriving on a flight. The Palm Beach Post reported that the gunman may have emerged firing from a bathroom.
Reports is that airport shooter flew in from Canada and came out shooting from bathroom in Terminal 2 #FortLauderdale

An Isuzu DMAX Shadow and some hunting


Just before Christmas I picked up another Isuzu D-MAX from my mates at Southern Autos Manukau.

It is the “SHADOW”, a tricked up D-MAX built on the LS model.

The blurb states:

The Isuzu D-MAX SHADOW comes with over $8000 worth of accessories, Limited Edition 20 Wheels, Black Sports Bar, Blacked Out Grille, Blacked Out Mirrors, Black Graphics Package, Reverse Camera, Tinted Windows and much more.

This Limited Edition vehicle is based on the tough and dependable Isuzu D-Max LS Double Cable 4X4 Automatic. Fitted with Air Conditioning, 6 Air Bags, Traction Control System, Electronic Stability Program, USB/AUX, Bluetooth Phone Connectivity, Bluetooth Music Streaming, Cruise Control, Child Seat Anchor Points, Projector Headlights, LED Tail Lights, Factory Running Boards and the list goes on.

Which is all well and good, but what does all that mean for a real bloke who isn’t swayed by marketing speak or?upset because CGI animals are talking about getting killed to get into the truck?

Unlike Toyota these trucks don’t need CGI to get animals into the truck; real blokes and proper sheilas kill the animals and chuck them in the back of the truck like they are meant to do. They are proper and real utes, even when tricked out with the accessories. ? Read more »

Political Correctness kills again

San Bernardino

Political correctness kills because it tells us to ignore the little voice in our head that says, ” Something is wrong here.” That little voice inside our head is the sum of all our knowledge and experiences of the world and its job is to protect us from harm. That little voice may not always be right because we are human and fallible, but erring on the side of caution is a good thing in my book when lives are at risk.

The latest Islamic terror attack in San Bernardino could have been prevented because warning bells had gone off inside the head of an American who lived in the area weeks before. The little voice inside his head told him that something was wrong, but his ingrained political correctness told him that it would be offensive to report his suspicions, because of the race and religion of the people his intuition was warning him about.

Why is the default position of the Media Party to side with criminals?

Here we go again.

An idiot with a death wish is firing a gun in a ?suburban street, and the liberal elite media luvvies that weren?t crapping themselves lying on the ground dodging bullets and safely ensconced behind their keyboards write lengthy epistles second guessing people who are paid to protect us by putting their own lives on the line.

3News reports:

Wellington’s police commander says he’s confident officers “acted appropriately” when they fatally shot a 25-year-old gunman who opened fire in an Upper Hutt fast food restaurant.

Superintendent Sam Hoyle tonight confirmed earlier media reports that Pera Smiler of Upper Hutt was the man killed in the armed stand-off in the city’s business district yesterday.

“I have reviewed the CCTV footage of the event this afternoon and remain confident that my officers acted appropriately to keep the community safe,” Supt Hoyle said in a statement.

He said police were still sifting through hundreds of pieces of information and dozens of witnesses, as well as providing support for Smiler’s family.

Before he was shot Smiler told a store attendant who was attempting to talk him down that he was trying to get into the army, but was rejected because of his police record.

Aside from that exchange, not much is known about why he took a high-powered rifle into a McDonald’s and fired a single shot, leading to much of the business district being put into lockdown.

Witnesses told NZ Newswire say he was incoherently screaming as he paced back and forth on the corner of Main and Wakefield St.

No one else was hurt during the opening skirmish inside the McDonald’s or later when Smiler shot at the police dog that accompanied the uniformed officers who eventually shot and killed him. ? ?? Read more »

Guest Post – Calling Quail

Simon Lusk with Bruce, Mabo and Dave and his mighty Isuzu D-Max

Californian Quail can be very cunning and hard to locate. I have spent many, many hours trying to locate birds right across the country, doing reasonably well with dogs, but did substantially better when I started using a locator call.

Mouth calls are tricky to get to work well. I have tried most on the market and while they can help locate birds they do not always sound right, so I have largely given up on them. Instead I use an AJ Productions Call with an upland card in it. ? ? Read more »

Susannah not backing down after outrage over pics of her daughter enjoying duckshooting

Yesterday we and outrage over a t-shirt some womble scientist wore, the other day it was over Susannah Constantine’s photo of her daughter duck shooting.

Susannah, of the Trini and Susannah TV show fame, is made of far sterner stuff than the scientist who cried over the shirt.

She sticks it to the moaners and whiners.

I?ve learned in the past week that sometimes in life it?s better to duck. When a newspaper ran a piece about my daughter on her first shoot with the headline ?Ten years old and smeared in blood?, the fallout was loud and instantaneous. My daughter Cece was horrified ? because she?s 11, not ten.

I?m certain that the hullabaloo about her age will haunt us for weeks. But the rest of the article, which was centred on the fact that she had shot her first duck and, in the time-honoured country tradition, had been ?blooded? with a quick smear of the cheek, completely passed her by. Water off a duck?s back, you might say.

To her, a country girl, shooting food for the table is a natural part of rural life. My only regret is that the fuss brought about something I?ve always tried to avoid. I?ve never wanted to include my family in my professional life ? and never have done ? but sadly her picture was only deemed to be newsworthy because I?ve been on TV.

The one thing I?d do differently is not post the photo on Instagram. It was naive of me to think it would stop there, and naive of readers to believe a picture speaks a thousand words when it camouflages the sportsmanship, conservation, habitat management and regulation that lies behind all country sports.

The brief media clamour was, however, a sign of how times change. When my father took me on my first shoot and blooded my face, it was a regarded as a celebration of rural life. Everyone understood it, everyone supported it. My father was not a TV presenter, and no one cared what he did in his private life. But it was also 1970 and people were still watching the Black and White Minstrel Show ? and that was OK too.

?Duckgate? ? as we now call it at home ? and the overwhelming response (both positive and negative) has caused me to reflect on my views about rural life. If I?m honest, it gave me a sense of pride to see my daughter tackle something adult and challenging ? and succeed.
