Posted on 07/29/2019 12:03:27 PM PDT by Kevin in California
The shooter who killed three people and wounded at least 11 more has been identified as Santino Willian Legan, a described Iranian American.
Legan had an Instagram account on which he shared only three photos. One of the photos depicted Ali Asghar Vahabzadeh, Legans maternal grandfather.
Don’t know if this is confirmed, but I’m reading that law enforcement thinks there might be second person involved?
Hate and resentment taught through his family, and its relationship with Islam. It was his own kind of Jihad. There is no other name for it. Thankfully he’s dead. On with the next “lone wolf” who attacks in the name of Islam.
To buy in Nevada legally, he would also need a Nevada address, otherwise he would have to have it shipped to a CA FFL to be legal.
I agree with you completely. The Islamic imagery trope is BS. He was just a mega a-hole,
From what I can see
With a few exceptions California law is that “all firearms purchasers must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a long gun (rifle or shotgun) and 21 years of age to purchase a handgun (pistol or revolver).
Sudden Jihad Syndrome in a gun free gathering.
Muzzies are puzzies.
Christ is Risen—and Nietzsche is still dead.
A lot of those kind of names can be Christian or even Parsi. Caution is due.
Based on the evidence as presented so far, I agree.
- No mention of Islam, Muslim faith, Mohammad, Jihad, etc;
- Just one picture of his (?)great-grandfather;
- Talks briefly about a book that pushes social darwinism;
- posts negative crap about mixed race people AND white people;
- posts negative crap about too much development;
He was just a scummy hater. Too bad he killed some good people, and forced a cop to kill him, before he left his mortal coil.
There it is again, a member of the religion of piece matters himself for his religion, you know, the religion of piece. Sick!
Have the sleepers been awakened to shoot up summer festivals? One in Cali and another in Brooklyn, in the same week? Coincidence?
“The shooter was just another hateful, lost young man who grabbed onto radical ideas wherever he could find. He did not have a coherent worldview other than hate and resentment.”
His grandfather, whom he looked up to, was a radical Iranian Islamicist but nothing to see there according to you.
Thank you, Ilhan, for sharing your enlightened opinion with us.
What are they basing that on? That he knew how to.use a bolt.cutter?
As of January 1, 2019 you need to be 21 to purchase a long gun in California.
- The shooter never mentioned islam, Mohammed, Jihad, etc.
- So far there is no indication that he attended a mosque.
- No mention of him yelling "Allah Ackbar".
There is just the datapoint of a picture of a grandfather or great grandfather. That's thin.
Let's wait until more info comes out about his background, friends, etc.
Fox radio news at the top of the hour called the shooter a white supremacist.
IOW...a Liberal Democrat.
Iranian plus his grandfather was accused of molesting an 8 year sister of his.
