    LONG ISLAND, New York (WABC) -- Friday marks the 25-year anniversary of a deadly shooting on a Long Island Rail Road train. A man from Brooklyn named Colin Ferguson opened fire inside the commuter train to Hicksville on December 7, 1993. Six passengers were killed and 19 others were hurt. Ferguson is serving a 315-year prison sentence. Survivors of the deadly shooting are still comforting each other a quarter of a century later to talk about the day the gunfire rang out and how their lives have changed.

    On October 17, 2018, a student at a technical college in the Crimean city of Kerch carried out a Columbine-style rampage attack. He committed suicide at the end of his attack. He killed 20 people and wounded 70 more, many of them severely. I will not mention his name. It is included in the excerpt below. There are very restrictive gun control laws in place in Crimea.The murderer legally obtained a shotgun by performing all that was required, including a medical exam, and joining a local gun club. He purchased 150 rounds of ammunition a month before the attack. In...

    Dominiic Rozier, Hero who stopped Kroger Killing Spree in KentuckyOn 24 October 2018, just before 3 p.m., at the Kroger store in Jeffersontown, Kentucky, a man opened fire on people he did not know. The suspect, Gregory Alan Bush was a prohibited possessor. He had a mental illness, paranoid schizophrenia. He had been convicted of domestic violence against his parents and his wife. That is the last time I will mention his name.  Mass murderers should not reap a reward of celebrity. This is a case where an armed citizen stopped the ongoing mass murder.  There was another armed citizen at the...

    UPDATES: Sadly, both the death and injury tolls have risen. This on social media from the Times. 11 fatalities, no children in Pittsburgh shooting, authorities announce. 6 injured, including 4 police officers, but not the shooter.— Trip Gabriel (@tripgabriel) October 27, 2018 Our prayers for all the victims’ family and friends.***We previously noted there were suggestions that the shooter’s social media accounts contained blatant antisemitic threats. That’s been confirmed now as the NY Post reports. The man who killed eight people at a Pittsburgh synagogue was a virulent anti-Semite who apparently posted, “Screw your optics. I’m going in,” just hours...

    HARARE, Zimbabwe — A new documentary on massacres by Zimbabwe's military … The screening in the capital, Harare, would have been almost impossible under former leader Robert Mugabe, who led the country for 37 years and resigned following military intervention in November. President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a longtime Mugabe loyalist and enforcer who succeeded him, has tolerated documentaries and plays critical of the government amid promises of a "flowering of democracy." But none has taken such direct aim at Mnangagwa as the new documentary on the army operation he supported as state security minister between 1983 and 1987. "Gukurahundi genocide: 36...

    Chalet Reports finds that indiscriminate rampage killings in the United States increased by nearly five times (500 percent) within the first decade after the introduction of serotonin-related antidepressants in the 1960s, and has essentially doubled since then, to nearly 10 times the highest rate of rampage killings in earlier decades, after Eli Lilly first began admitted testing on humans of fluoxetine (known mostly by its brand name Prozac). The bar chart below shows the number of such rampage killing incidents (not number of victims) by decade, beginning in 1900, through August 2018. A proportional line graph of the growth of...

    Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Cheney Says U.S. Should Restart Enhanced Interrogation Programs Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox Business Thursday that he thinks the CIA should restart and improve on post 9/11-era enhanced interrogation programs. “If it were my call, I would not discontinue those programs. I'd have them active and ready to go,” he said. “And I'd go back and study them and learn." Cheney commented on the matter following a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday in which Trump’s nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, said she would not have the CIA return to...

    <p>The number of unarmed citizens (262,000,000*) slaughtered by tyrannical (mostly leftist, Marxist, fascist) governments during the 20th century would come pretty close to wiping out the entire U.S. population.</p> <p>Our founders understood the danger of runaway government power and tyranny, thus the constitution guaranteeing our God-given liberty and severely restricting the powers of government. And they included the 2nd amendment for good reason. An armed citizenry guarantees it stays that way.</p>

    It seems the mass murderer in Florida did not use magazines of a capacity over 10 rounds. This presents a minor difficulty for those who want to ban magazines over 10 rounds.From miamiherald.com: The “weapon and bullets were not high quality and were breaking apart,” one of the legislators, state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, told the Herald.Cruz went in with only 10-round magazines because larger clips would not fit in his duffel bag, Book said. Given the general ignorance of reporters on firearms technology, and of  Democrats in general, I would not rely on this information until we have...

    In one of the leaked photographs from the Mandalay Bay shooter's suite, there is a revolver that he apparently committed suicide with. From page 30 of the January 18, 2018,  initial report of the lvmpd.com: Team 2 encountered Paddock lying on the floor on his back. A small frame revolver was observed on the ground above Paddock’s head. Apparent blood was located on the revolver and a pool of blood had formed around Paddocks head. The officers believed Paddock had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The large window at Paddock’s feet was broken out and the curtain was blowing into...

    The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is a mess. While I have no doubt there are good, capable deputies within the department, they’re marred by being in the same department with Sheriff Scott Israel. The embattled sheriff’s woes began with the Parkland shooting but only seem to grow, probably in part due to his vocal stance on gun control in the immediate aftermath now looking like a case of wagging the dog. The latest is the sheer number of investigations by the Broward State Attorney’s office into the sheriff’s department. There is a pile of them. Since 2012, there have been...

Sam Zeif in video from the presidential listening session, February 21, 2018: In Australia there was a shooting at a school in 1999.   I am reminded of the scene from Animal House, where Bluto exclaims: Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? and a listener...

    American Thinker ^ | 02/26/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Isn’t it peculiar that nobody in the media seems to mention this? Daniel Greenfield writes: In the last decade, there were only 10 major mass shootings where the death toll went into the double digits. Three of those were carried out by Muslim terrorists. That’s all the more remarkable since Muslims make up less than 1% of the United States population, but account for 33% of major mass shootings. Proportional to their representation in the population, Muslims are responsible for far more mass shootings than Americans. The trend is worrisome. Since 2015, not a single year has passed without...

    In the aftermath of another school campus mass murder by a deranged individual, there were a myriad of reactions as people tried to come to grips with why this continues to happen. Many of the reactions are expected -- especially those speaking of the need for greater controls over the acquisition of guns. One reaction I don’t understand is why clergy are not calling for more religion instead of more gun control. By now you know that (to their credit) the FBI stated they did not act on a tip received on the Parkland, Fla., murderer that could have potentially...

    Clare Schexnyder wants students and teachers across the country to leave their classrooms together, to protest every child and educator who has been killed in a school shooting and promote gun control.And the Georgia mother is getting much press about her National School Walkout as well as swelling support from all corners of the country. She is getting help from the organizers of the Women’s March too.Certainly a red flag. But curiously when reporters and Schexnyder discuss the activist’s plans and background they seem to always omit the fact she worked nearly two decades at CNN as a senior...

    A foreseeable act of mass murder and terrorism just wiped out 17 innocent lives and ripped apart countless families. Besides the obvious psychopathic killer-Cruz, who should be held accountable for their actions and gross malfeasance? In descending order of the most current events, take your pick(s): 1. The FBI- Notified twice they had a ticking time bomb in the shell of a man, ready to detonate at any moment. They had been made aware of his name, address, intent to kill- specifically at a school, that he had the means to kill masses, and that he was brazenly proud and...

    In the aftermath of Wednesday's deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, politicians and pundits alike are using the tragedy as an opportunity to push for gun control legislation and demonize anyone who opposes such laws as evil, inhuman monsters solely motivated by NRA lobbying dollars. Given the immediate climate of scaremongering, it's worth pointing out that to this day, the deadliest school massacre in United States history was committed not with a gun, but a bomb.On May 18th, 1927, the last day of classes at the only school in the small town of Bath, Michigan was interrupted by a deadly...

LaSata of the Rockledge Police Department, made clear the intervention of the armed citizens was responsible for stopping the murderer.  Two employees were shot, one killed, in the parking lot. Then two armed employees intervened. From the transcript of this video from wesh.com: Matt Lupoli, reporter:Another employee, a manager, came out with a gun of his own and shot and wounded Baily. That man has not been named, but police say he saved several...

    The removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored, says Tom Gross It is not surprising, given the sheer scale of the Holocaust and its sadism, that it has dominated contemporary discourse among Jews and others. But, while the extermination of European Jews has rightfully (though belatedly) generated a great deal of study and research, the removal of the Jews from the Arab world has been all but ignored. This ignorance extends to policy-makers at the highest level. Some journalists and politicians I have spoken to have expressed surprise when I even mentioned that Jews...
