The Campaign For DA

Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • I really don't know what to say about the worst mass shooting in U.S. history that occurred in Las Vegas. It is beyond comprehension that someone would open fire from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay into a crowd of concert goers. At least 50 dead and more than 400 transported to hospitals.
  • But it is domestic terrorism committed by an older white male using a fully automatic weapon. Not semi-automatic. Fully automatic.  
  • He was simply spraying the crowd with bullets.
  • I'm sick in my stomach. 
  • All of this, as it should, will overshadow Trump's idiotic statements this weekend attacking a mayor in Puerto Rico, a country where people are dying, while he is at one of his golf clubs for the millionth time as president.
  • Yep: 
  • Monty Hall died over the weekend at the age of 96.
  • I watched Fletch over the weekend again. Funny, but it might be overrated. 
  • I'm getting to the point in my life where as long as I wake up, it's a good day. 
  • The Messenger had a headline on the front page (I'll post it in a second) that read "Running on Empty" regarding the fleeing motorcyclist who ran out of gas. There must be a Jackson Browne fan over there. 
  • One dog dying makes you love the other even more.

Please enlighten me: WHY does it matter that the shooter is a white male? Go ahead--make it political! Sickos come in all colors, shapes, ages, etc.

It's only domestic terrorism if it was done to make some political statement, otherwise it's a mass shooting!

Your "Trump vs Puerto Rican mayor" attempt is a little weak.

I won't comment because there will be many, many comments about how anyone and everyone should have as big an armory as they can stockpile.

WHY ARE THE "NON-RACISTS" ALWAYS THE FIRST TO BRING UP RACE? I WOULD THINK BG COULD LOOK PAST RACE, BUT I GUESS NOT... DOES THE RTG HAVE A MUSTACHE?

Angry white men gave us Trump which may prove more disastrous than Las Vegas

I don't think it was an NFA gun; too slow and inconsistent. Likely a bump fire stock and simulates automatic fire; it can be purchased online.

On top of that registered lowers have increased in price about 800% since the registry was closed in 1986. It's to cost you about $20,000-25,000 to get a hold of one nowadays, unless you're a gun dealer.

This shooting will knock Trump off the news. What will he do to reclaim center stage?

Anyone with machining skills and the right tools could manufacture the parts to convert or simply reverse engineer and produce one for all 10 rifles...assuming they were the right semi-autos. A good gun nut would know which rifles were easiest to convert. There are shit tons of illegally converted rifles out there.

To paraphrase the Undersheriff Kevin McMahill of Las Vegas PD, "If you have a person firing an automatic weapon into a crowd of people from the 32nd floor of a building, it's domestic terrorism".

I'm sorry, but you are simply wrong. We don't know the motive, maybe he just went crazy and wanted to shoot people. That's the actions of a madman, not a terrorist. If he did it for a cause or for some political reason then it is domestic terrorism.

In any event I do realize the people there were terrified, and the Sheriff was likely responding to that, but we have no idea at this point if it was an act of terror or just senseless violence.

There is a rumor that he had a tumor.

Hey Skippy, Stay Woke!! Has Trump launched nukes into North Korea yet? Has Trump fired Sessions yet?

I'll bet Trump never plays the amount of golf that Obama did.

The Puerto Rico mayor had praised Obammy for releasing a FALN terrorist that had been serving 35 years in prison. Birds of a feather.

SpanishWarDonkey said...

Well sure. You can even purchase an LPK with auto-sear included. Then it's just drilling the third pinhole in the right location and getting a boot carrier that hasn't been neutered.

I still stand by my comment that it was a bumpfire stock; or maybe a binary trigger. FA doesn't slow down or get inconsistent like that one appeared to.

Proud voter for him. Seek the truth on USA sending help.did you not see all the aid stacked up behind that crazy lady.

Mayor complaining during press conference about lack of aide (she used the word genocide) while standing in front of pallets upon pallets of supplies behind her is gold. FYI, in case you want to know how they roll in Puerto Rico.

When they found the dead shooter, he was on one knee and had one fist raised. Wonder what that means?

Do you honestly not see the connection?

The statutory definition of domestic terrorism in the United States has changed many times over the years; also, it can be argued that acts of domestic terrorism have been occurring since long before any legal definition was set forth.

Under current United States law, set forth in the USA PATRIOT Act, acts of domestic terrorism are those which: "(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended – (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."[2] [3]

White American = crazy person
Brown person or immigrant = terrorist

8:47, race shouldn't matter. Except that it does when the commentary and coverage is racist.

Strange that you never mentioned the golf abuse of that idiot Obama. Trump has already worked more that Obama did in eight years. Your credibility is lacking.

11:30, Puerto Rico has quite a few mayors. Just like every state in the country. Nice comprehension there Ethel.

Connection to what, nothing I've read or seen so far has him connected to anything. Maybe he just hates bro country and had enough of the noise.

I'll bet at the end of the year that Chicago will have more deaths by guns than Vegas. But yet you won't hear a peep from the left. You know the left don't you? They are the ones that control Chicago. And they are the ones with the strictest gun control laws.

There's a run on guns and ammo after each incident. Now does anyone reallyelieve this congress is going to pass any gun legislation and this man sign it? The NRA has conditioned the rednecks of this world as well as Pavlov did his dogs

Anonymous said...

They already passed 500 deaths so far, almost 10 times more than those who died in Vegas. But let's talk about disarming law abiding gun owners and enforcing new gun control laws that won't stop the gangland executions happening hundreds of times a day across this country....because by talking about that paints brown people in a bad light and we can't do that.

Contrary to what you may have read on Breitbart, that statement is nowhere near reality or credible.
